Hits No. 1 on BookScan Nonfiction Hardcover List While Debuting at No. 6 on the New York Times' Best Sellers List; Tome Provides Inside Story Behind Obama Administration Scandals and Corruption

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - Judicial Watch announced today that Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton's groundbreaking new book THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES: Obama's Big Secrecy, Big Corruption, and Big Government (Threshold Editions; July 24, 2012; Hardcover; $26.99), is the Number 1 best-selling nonfiction hardcover book in the country. Fitton's book, released on July 24, 2012, has hit Number 1 on BookScan's nonfiction hardcover list for the week ending July 29), while debuting at #6 on The New York Times Best Sellers Nonfiction Hardcover List (to be published on August 12). The book was also featured in the lead story earlier this week on Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel.

In THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton outlines why Barack Obama is among Washington's most corrupt and most secretive -- from his flouting of federal law and the Constitution, to his personal corruption, his penchant for government con games, and threats to election integrity.

Judicial Watch, America's largest nonpartisan government watchdog, investigated the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. It is the grassroots group that helped to impeach Bill Clinton and took the Bush White House secrecy all the way to the Supreme Court. Since the beginning of the Obama administration, Judicial Watch has filed over 900 open records demands and over 90 lawsuits, including a successful fight over the secret Obama White House visitor logs and ongoing legal battles over the Fast and Furious scandal.

THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES comprehensively details how the Obama administration, which promised to be one of the most transparent, could prove to be the most secretive in a generation. The book exposes the inside facts that the Obama White House has desperately fought -- sometimes in court -- to keep from the American people. 

Judicial Watch has unearthed the truth behind such high-profile issues as the bailouts, Obamacare, Guantanamo, Obama's true ties to Bill Ayers and to the Black Panthers voting intimidation scandal, and the Constitution-defying government czars. In addition, Fitton reveals President Obama's personal war against FOX News, his real link to ACORN, and his radical Chicago connections. Through scores of smoking-gun government files, some replicated in the book and many unearthed after lengthy court battles, Fitton discloses the facts of the Obama-backed $535 million loan guarantee to Solyndra, promoted by the president as a model for taxpayer-financed economic recovery -- only months before its disastrous bankruptcy filing.

Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch are proof that change can be brought about through grassroots action -- even if the opponents compose the very top of our federal government, from the president and Congress to the judiciary. THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES makes clear that the government can be held accountable while illustrating the desperate need for checks on the current and any future administration.

"Tom Fitton has captured his organization's exciting and important journey in THE CORRUPTION CHRONICLES, a highly readable, informative and entertaining look at how Judicial Watch lawyers and investigators have uncovered scandal after scandal... " Mark Tapscott, Executive Editor, The Washington Examiner.

Judicial Watch's motto is: "Because no one is above the law!"
