ISBN: 9781594202698

ID: 10020486

Bestselling author James B. Stewart's newsbreaking investigation of our era's most high-profile perjurers, revealing the alarming extent of this national epidemic. Our system of justice rests on a simple proposition: that witnesses will raise their hands and tell the truth. In "Tangled Webs," James B. Stewart reveals in vivid detail the consequences of the perjury epidemic that has swept our country, undermining the very foundation of our courts. With many prosecutors, investigators, and participants speaking for the first time, "Tangled Webs" goes behind the scene of the trials of media and homemaking entrepreneur Martha Stewart; top White House political adviser Lewis "Scooter" Libby; home-run king Barry Bonds; and Wall Street money manager Bernard Madoff. The saga of Martha Stewart's conviction captured the nation, but until now no one has answered the most basic question: Why would Stewart risk prison, put her entire empire in jeopardy, and lie repeatedly to government investigators to save a few hundred thousand dollars in stock gains? Moreover, how exactly was the notoriously meticulous Stewart brought down? Drawing on the accounts of then-deputy attorney general James Comey and U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, Stewart sheds new light on the Libby investigation, making clear how far into the White House the Valerie Plame CIA scandal extended, and why Libby took the fall. In San Francisco, Giants home-run king Barry Bonds faces trial due to his testimony before a grand jury investigating the use of illegal steroids in sports. Bonds was warned explicitly that the only crime he faced was perjury. Stewart unlocks the story behind the mounting evidence that he nonetheless lied under oath. Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme is infamous, but less well known is how he eluded detection for so long in the face of repeated investigations. Of the four he is the only one who has admitted to lying. The perjury outbreak is symptomatic of a broader breakdown of ethics in American life. It isn't just the judicial system that relies on an honor code: Academia, business, medicine, and government all depend on it. "Tangled Webs" explores the age-old tensions between greed and justice, self-interest and public interest, loyalty and duty. At a time when Americans seem hungry for moral leadership and clarity, "Tangled Webs" reaffirms the importance of truth.

Tangled Webs: How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff - gebunden oder broschiert

2011, ISBN: 1594202699

ID: 14220364763

[EAN: 9781594202698], [PU: Penguin Press HC, The], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Martha Stewart, convicted of false statements and conspiracy, still maintains her innocence and claims she was prosecuted because she was a successful woman: Stewart's lawyer told prosecutors she would plead guilty and admit she lied-why Stewart abruptly changed her mind and said she couldn't admit to any wrongdoing. Why Stewart wasn't prosecuted for insider trading even though she sold her stock the day before a devastating announcement sent its value plunging. How Stewart nearly escaped prosecution entirely until the government's star witness changed his testimony and confessed he'd lied. How testimony from Stewart's best friend and from her longtime assistant helped persuade the jury that Stewart was guilty of perjury and false statements. Scooter Libby, convicted of perjury and conspiracy for his role in the Valerie Plame-CIA scandal: Why Libby was the only Bush administration official indicted, even though Karl Rove in the White House and Richard Armitage at the State Department actually leaked Plame's identity. How far into the White House the conspiracy to lie and cover up extended, including Dick Cheney's role and a hitherto-undisclosed letter from special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald to the president. Barry Bonds, still maintaining his innocence while awaiting trial on ten counts of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice for lying about illegal steroid use: Why Bonds was indicted despite being granted immunity for any crime except perjury. Why Bonds's trainer Greg Anderson went to jail rather than talk. How Bonds admitted using what he now "suspects" were illegal steroids-but claimed he didn't know what the substances were at the time. How the lies and false statements of others-including track star Marion Jones and a key lawyer-substantially delayed and nearly derailed the case. Bernard Madoff, who pleaded guilty to perjury and false statements as part of his decades-long Ponzi scheme: How, when, and why Madoff turned from a legitimate investor into running the biggest Ponzi scheme in history. How Madoff eluded detection for so long by lying to government officials about his operations and who else he was able to enlist in his conspiracy. How the scheme unwound and resulted in a dramatic confession from Madoff to his sons. Book jacket.
