The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder
Vincent Bugliosi, best known for prosecuting Charles Manson in 1969, as well as his New York Times bestselling book “Helter Skelter” detailing those crimes, is a well-known and successful attorney. During his eight years in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials including several murder trials. Bugliosi believed that George W. Bush as well as several members of his administration including Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, Colin Powell, and Paul Wolfowitz, should have been charged with the murders of the thousands of American soldiers who died in the Invasion of Iraq, because of his belief that Bush launched the invasion under false pretenses. Bugliosi testified during a House Judiciary Committee on July 25, 2008, at which he urged for the committee to refer the matter to the Department of Justice.
