headshot--Web-Photo--Sorkin Licensed to Lie is a remarkable and frightening revelation of surprises – one after the other – about how a group of purported elite prosecutors wrapped themselves in the flag, hid evidence, misled me and my co-counsel in the Enron barge case, and in the process, destroyed countless lives while a number of federal judges turned a blind eye to their egregious prosecutorial misconduct.

I saw it happen, but like me and my co-counsel, we were unaware of the breadth and scope of the deception. Licensed to Lie draws back the cobalt- blue curtain bearing the seal of the United States Department of Justice to expose how these prosecutors disregarded constitutional rights in a concerted effort to obtain convictions at the expense of doing justice.

Those people – the former Enron Task Force prosecutors – are an elite cabal who went on to significant decision-making positions in the federal government.

Conspiracy of Fools and The Smartest Guys in the Room, both best-sellers, told only the story known at the time. This book goes much deeper, discloses evidence the prosecutors hid for years, and tells it all – one shocking revelation after the other.”
