Tom Fitton’s organization Judicial Watch is a useful ally of citizens who want a conservative government watchdog monitoring an out-of-control government. Judicial Watch, incorporated in 1994, is a non-profit group that presses Republicans and Democrats alike on transparency, accountability and integrity in government.
Fitton and company worked with then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on ethics reform legislation and have filed over 100 lawsuits against the Obama administration to battle the stonewalling and corruption they find rampant in big government.
“Obama’s unilateral actions are undermining our constitutional republic in ways that we have not seen, at least in recent American history,” Fitton said. “We still have a Congress. We still have a judiciary that has the ability to reign in the government when it chooses, assuming the law allows, but Obama has taken on unilateral actions that have not been checked.”
Fitton says the Obama “way” is “catch me if you can.”
In this interview, Fitton discusses the scandals President Obama is now calling “phony” — Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS targeting, Solyndra and NSA surveillance. Fitton is not buying the dodge. He seeks facts, documents and proof.
Critical of congressional oversight that is not consistent or thorough, Fitton instead encourages citizen activism. He believes citizens often do not understand the tools available for them to hold local, state and federal officials accountable.
Fitton’s book, “The Corruption Chronicles,” details the scandals of Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama. The organization has also produced a movie, “The District of Corruption,” on AXS TV and this fall on HDNet Movies.
