In this interview, author and attorney Charlotte Dennett talks about her new book, The People V. Bush: One Lawyer’s Campaign to Bring the President to Justice and the National Grassroots Movement She Encounters Along the Way, what led her to run for Vermont state attorney general on a platform to prosecute George W. Bush, the current movement to bring Bush to justice, and connections between the US accountability movement and similar movements around the world.

Toward Freedom: First of all, could you talk a about what led you to run for state attorney general on a platform to prosecute George W. Bush?
Charlotte Dennett: Robin Lloyd, the publisher of TowardFreedom.com, gave me a copy of The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder by Vincent Bugliosi to read. She knew about my background as a journalist in the Middle East and that I was appalled by Bush's illegal war in Iraq. She also knew that I had recently decided to be the Progressive Party's candidate for Vermont attorney general in the 2008 race. (I am both an investigative journalist and an attorney.) When she handed the book to me, she said, "I think this will interest you. There's something in the book about what we in the separate states can do. Let me know what you think."
