Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice
I was an Assistant United States Attorney in three judicial districts under 9 United States Attorneys from both political parties. I represented the United States in 350 or so criminal appeals, and I have represented private parties in another 150, all resulting in more than 180 published decisions. I’m past president of the Bar Association for the Fifth Federal Circuit and the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice is a book I prayed I would never have to write. It’s written in the style of a legal thriller to be enjoyable and understandable to non-lawyers, but it is the true, behind-the-scenes insider perspective on major litigation during the last decade. It tells a very human story that every informed citizen should know.
I also write for the New York Observer, and my opinion pieces at www.Observer.com have “gone viral” in the last two weeks. Please check them out. They include 1. All the President’s Muses 2. Holder Protects Corrupt Prosecutors 3. War on Wall Street 4. Meet Emmet Sullivan (the IRS Judge who scheduled a hearing for July 10).
A tragic suicide, a likely murder, wrongful imprisonment, and gripping courtroom scenes draw readers into this compelling story giving them a frightening perspective on justice corrupted and who should be accountable when evidence is withheld. Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice is the true story of the strong-arm, illegal, and unethical tactics used by headline-grabbing federal prosecutors in their narcissistic pursuit of power. Its scope reaches from the US Department of Justice to the US Senate, the FBI, and the White House. This true story is a scathing attack on corrupt prosecutors, the judges who turned a blind eye to these injustices, and the president who has promoted them to powerful political positions.
From the Foreword
This book should serve as the beginning of a serious conversation about whether our criminal justice system continues to live up to its vaunted reputation. As citizens of a free society, we all have an important stake in making sure that it does.

U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar- AZ 4th Congressional District-
Congressman Paul A. Gosar, DDS hails from Flagstaff, Arizona and is serving his first term in Congress as the Representative from Arizona’s First Congressional District. As a health care provider and small business owner, Gosar is focused on bringing jobs back to the district, reforming health care, reining in government spending, and ensuring that the American people are involved in the solution making process.
Before being elected to Congress in 2010, Gosar owned his own dental practice in Flagstaff for twenty-five years. His experience in Dentistry earned him the recognition of the Arizona Dental Association’s “Dentist of the Year,” and he was also inducted into the Arizona Dental Association’s Hall of Fame. His experience in working to reform health care first came when he served as the President of the Arizona Dental Association and as the Vice-Chair of the American Dental Association Council on Governmental Affairs.
Gosar currently serves on the Natural Resources Committee which serves his constituents well as he represents a region full of minerals and energy resources. He serves on the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee, Indian and Alaska Native Affairs Subcommittee, and Water and Power Subcommittee. With these important assignments he remains focused on advocating for the people he represents.
A believer that the Federal Government’s overreach has inhibited job growth throughout Arizona’s First District and the country, Gosar also serves on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He serves on the Government Organization, Efficiency, and Financial Subcommittee, the National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations Subcommittee, and is the Vice-Chairman of the Health Care, District of Columbia, Census and the National Archives Subcommittee. He is focused on uncovering the unnecessary government bureaucracy and red tape and finding solutions to create a smaller, more nimble government.
Whether Gosar is in Washington fighting for his constituents, or back home in Arizona listening to the people and working together to find solutions to the problems that face Arizona’s First Congressional District, he remains committed to ushering in a new era of government that empowers individuals and reforms the bureaucratic procedures that stifle job creation and innovation.
Family: Dr. Gosar and his wife Maude reside in Flagstaff with their three children.
