08/11/11 – Scott Horton – The Scott Horton Show

by | Aug 11, 2011 | Interviews

The Other Scott Horton (no relation), international human rights lawyer, professor and contributing editor at Harper’s magazine, discusses his article “A Setback for Obama’s War on Whistleblowers” and the unusual judicial check on Executive power; how the DOJ persecutes whistleblowers when they can’t be prosecuted; the Supreme Court decision that gives blanket immunity to prosecutorial misconduct; the two torture lawsuits progressing against Donald Rumsfeld because apparently government officials can only torture foreigners, not Americans, with impunity; and why another adverse SCOTUS ruling could effectively remove any process of legal recourse against the government.
