The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove
Cross Posted at Legal Schnauzer
We posted yesterday about the Project Save Justice video, The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove, which can be viewed through three clips at YouTube.

The video notes that former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is at the center of the best known political prosecution under the George W. Bush Justice Department. But it spotlights numerous lesser-known Democratic officials who were targeted on criminal charges that appear to be flimsy or not based on the law.

Since writing our post yesterday, we have learned more about The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove. And it is good news for folks who hope to see the appropriate people held accountable for turning the Department of Justice into a political weapon.

First, The Political Prosecutions of Karl Rove is not just a series of YouTube clips. It is a full-length documentary that is available in a video format and can be downloaded on the Web. The complete documentary is only 22 minutes long, so it packs a lot of vital information into a relatively small package.

Second, the documentary is a first-class piece of work. From watching the YouTube clips, it's easy to tell this wasn't put together by some schlub with a Web cam. You can tell this was artfully done, and there is a reason for that. The documentary was put together by John McTiernan, whose directing credits include Die Hard, Predator, and The Hunt for Red October, along with a number of other Hollywood blockbusters.

McTiernan has firsthand experience with the justice system through the Anthony Pellicano case, and that might help explain his interest in the Bush DOJ. 

I believe the documentary will be available soon in a video format through Project Save Justice. We will keep you posted here at Legal Schnauzer.
