In 2014, years before she became a regular guest on Fox News ripping the Russia investigation, Sidney Powell took aim at prosecutors in a 456-page book titled “Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice.”

A former federal prosecutor, Powell said she wrote the book “after seeing a core group of federal prosecutors break all the rules, make up crimes, hide evidence, and send innocent people to prison.” She also named the judges who, as she put it in a synopsis of the book, “turned a blind eye” to prosecutorial misconduct.
