Sidney the Author wrote LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice after seeing a core group of federal prosecutors break all the rules, make up crimes, hide evidence, and send innocent people to prison.

Sidney the Speaker can be seen on BookTV from her appearance at the CATO Institute with Judge Alex Kozinski.

She frequently appears on Lou Dobbs Tonight, Shannon Bream’s show, Hannity, NewsMax TV, One America News, and countless radio shows.
