"David is an incredibly gifted researcher and writer. He has been able to do what the mainstream media has been unwilling and unable to do, which is to chronicle the unprecedented and dangerous corruption in the Justice Department and expose how politics has been used to protect the Clintons. This is a must-read for anybody who wants to restore honor, dignity, and integrity to our justice system."

-Sean Hannity, Fox News

Booklist Review

Limbaugh, a nationally syndicated columnist and brother of radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, perceives the Clinton administration as a power-hungry, politicized, and even corrupt force bent on swaying the federal courts from their true course of dispensing objective justice to, instead, providing the president with increasingly absolute power.
