John Vecchione, newly named as president and chief executive officer of the conservative anti-government corruption watchdog Cause of Action Institute, believes promoting individual liberty and exposing government corruption has “never been more important.”

“As president of Cause of Action Institute, I will continue to advocate for a more transparent and accountable government free from waste, fraud, abuse and cronyism,” Vecchione said Monday. “It is an honor to lead a dedicated, talented team of attorney’s here at CoA Institute who are committed to advancing the ideals of a free and open society.” (RELATED: McAuliffe’s Donations To FBI Official’s Wife Launches Investigation)

Vecchione joined the watchdog in March 2016 as vice president with more than two decades of litigation experience. The former trial lawyer and appellate advocate led several cases for Cause of Action Institute, including a successful appeal that forced former Secretary of State John Kerry and U.S. Archivist David Ferriero to retrieve Hillary Clinton’s emails under the Federal Records Act.

“CoA Institute was founded to promote individual and economic liberty by limiting the power of the administrative state to make decisions that are contrary to freedom and prosperity,” Vecchione said. “These goals have never been more important.”

Vecchione tried cases and argued appeals nationwide in private practice. He has also written op-eds on freedom and constitutional order in newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times.

Vecchione holds a J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and a bachelor’s degree from Hamilton College.
