Daniel Sheehan: Fighting a Gallery of Rogues >>

EPISODE #13

AIRED: 11-01-2013

From the Pentagon Papers & the Watergate Break-in to Iran Contra, Legendary Civil Rights attorney, Danny Sheehan dishes on the Rogues Gallery of Adversaries that he’s confronted in his extraordinary career in litigation.

Sheehan gives a powerful interview that showcases the passion and perseverance of his fight. Blow by blow, his riveting autobiography, THE PEOPLE’S ADVOCATE, takes audiences inside the courtroom ring, where the fate of history was decided on the most important issues of our day. Eventually, his role as President of the Washington, DC-based Christic Institute would help define his role as America’s preeminent cause lawyer.

In The Peoples Advocate, Sheehan details “the inside story” of over a dozen historically significant American legal cases of the 20th Century, all of which he litigated. The remarkable cases covered in the book include both The Pentagon Papers Case in 1971 and The Watergate Burglary Case in 1973. In addition, Sheehan served as the Chief Attorney on The Karen Silkwood Case in 1976, which additionally revealed the CIA’s Israeli Desk had been smuggling 98% bomb-grade plutonium to the State of Israel and to Iran. In 1984, he was the Chief Trial Counsel on The American Sanctuary Movement Case, establishing the right of American church workers to provide assistance to Central American political refugees fleeing Guatemalan and Salvadorian “death squads.” His involvement with the sanctuary movement ultimately led to Sheehans famous Iran/Contra Federal Civil Racketeering Case against the Reagan/Bush Administration, which he investigated, initiated, filed, and then litigated. The resulting “Iran/Contra Scandal” nearly brought down that Administration, leading Congress to consider the impeachment of over a dozen of the top-ranking officials of the Reagan/Bush Administration.

The Peoples Advocate is the “real story” of these and many other historic American cases, told from the unique point of view of a central lawyer.
