Ms. Powell served in the DOJ for ten years and has devoted her private practice to federal appeals for the past twenty years. At the time of her appointment, Ms. Powell was the youngest assistant United States Attorney in the country. Her credentials include a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers and she also served as its President.
Recognized by her peers as a “Super Lawyer” and named as one of the “Best Lawyers in America.” She has been lead counsel in more than 500 appeals in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, resulting in more than 180 published opinions.
In Licensed to Lie, Ms. Powell leads readers through the disturbing events, missteps, cover-ups, malfeasance, and corruption of justice that have caused her to question the system she has been committed to for over thirty years. With the narrative style of a legal thriller, this true story captures the drama of the law, the real human costs and consequences of the corruption of justice, and cautions for anyone facing the Department of Injustice.
We here at the Gold Bar Reporters believe that Ms. Powell is a true American hero. She ranks among the 21st Century’s top whistleblowers in modern American history as she exposes the injustices and disgraceful conduct perpetrated by two federal Department of Justice (DOJ) officials invovled in the DOJ’s so called task force. With the qualified immunity and unlimited resources at their disposal – with almost no oversight by citizens- political officers have a license to lie and to destroy innocent lives.
Ms. Powell is Gold Bar Reporters hero of 2014!
