Last week on "This American Life," Chicago Public Radio’s overwhelmingly popular radio show, thousands of listeners heard the riveting story of DOJ whistleblower Rick Convertino. Mr. Convertino is a former top United States Prosecutor who successfully prosecuted the first terrorist case after 9/11. After winning the case, he blew the whistle to the U.S. Senate about serious DOJ misconduct in the war on terror. He was severely retaliated against and lost his career. In an unprecedented act of vengeance, the DOJ indicted him for obstruction of justice. A jury of his peers found him not guilty on all counts.
Mr. Convertino is currently pursuing a privacy act violation case against the Department of Justice.
