Attorney at Law, Author, and Legal Counsel to Turkish Anti-Defamation Alliance
Bruce Fein has worked in the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. for nearly 50 years. Among other things, he has served as associate deputy attorney general of the United States, general counsel of the Federal Communications Commission, counsel to the Joint Congressional Committee on Covert Operations in Iran, special assistant to the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice, testified hundreds of times as an expert witness before congressional committees, and state legislatures, has litigated cases in the United States Supreme Court and the International Criminal Court, published hundreds of articles in the Washington Times, the Washington Post, the New York Times, and Financial Times, appears regularly in the national and international media to comment on legal, political, and international affairs, and has authored “Constitutional Peril: The Life and Death Struggle for Our Constitution and Democracy” and “American Empire Before The Fall.”. The first examines the extraconstitutional actions of the Executive Branch in trampling on due process, the Fourth Amendment right to privacy, and checks and balances in the War on Terrorism ignited by 9/11. The second traces the abandonment of liberty and a fair opportunity of all to develop their faculties and pursue their ambitions free from domestic predation or foreign aggression as the glory of the United States in favor of Empire in which the summum bonum is word domination by force of arms and the armored knight eclipses wisdom and benevolence in public adulation.
