AOT #121: David Iglesias Podcasts In Justice: Inside the Scandal That Rocked the Bush Administration
David Iglesias served as United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico from 2001 to 2007. He headed a panel that advised former Attorney General John Ashcroft on border security issues. A former White House Fellow, he is also a captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Iglesias discusses his new book In Justice: Inside the Scandal That Rocked the Bush Administration. The Bush administration’s drive to politicize the Justice Department reached a new low with the wrongful firing of seven U.S. Attorneys in late 2006. Their action has ignited public outrage on a scale that far surpassed the reaction to any of the Bush administration’s other political debacles. David Iglesias was one of those federal prosecutors, and now he tells his story.
