Brett Story: The famed prosecutor wants to see the President tried for murder in an American courtroom.

But famed prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, foreshadowing the Senate committee report with much of the same damning evidence, argues in a new book that Bush “deserves much more than impeachment”–a penalty he considers incommensurate with the crimes committed. In The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, the New York Times bestselling author and prosecutor lays out the legal case for prosecuting President Bush in a US courtroom after he leaves office.

Bugliosi writes, “4000 young Americans decomposing in their grave today died for George Bush and Karl Rove and Dick Cheney.” His book is not only a scathing indictment of the President and his Administration but also a blueprint for holding him criminally accountable. Bugliosi accuses Bush of taking the nation to war in Iraq under deliberately false pretenses and thus holds him culpable for thousands of subsequent deaths, detailing in The Prosecution the legal basis for such a case and laying out what he argues is the requisite evidence for a murder conviction.

While at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Bugliosi successfully prosecuted twenty-one murder convictions without a single loss, most famously that of serial murderer Charles Manson. He also penned a number of best-selling true-crime books, including Helter Skelter and Outrage.

The Nation spoke to Bugliosi in a phone interview from his home in Los Angeles about his new book and the political challenges of bringing its title trial to realization.



  1. At best (or is it “at worst?”), he could be tried for involuntary manslaughter due to recklessness or, perhaps, criminal negligence.

    “The Prosecution of George Bush for Involuntary Manslaughter” isn’t as catchy, however, so Bugliosi has overblown his charges and case in the interest of selling more books.

    As much as I am hesitant to second guess Bugliosi, you may well have a point.

    First degree homicide would be hard to prove, if not impossible.

    First degree reckless homicide is possible. First-degree reckless homicide is the reckless causing of the death of another human being under circumstances which show an utter disregard for human life.

    Juries often act emotionally.If OJ could get “Jury Nullification” GW Bush probably could too. Scopes was found guilty in the “Scopes -Monkey trial”.

    Bush does have property in Paraguay where he could flee if things really became immminent. Cheney will probably go to Dubai in any case.

    Historians will have access to Bugliosi’s book. History will not be kind.
