This book here, ‘The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder,’ in it, I put together a case against George Bush that could result – it absolutely could result in his being prosecuted for first-degree murder in an American courtroom.
Vincent Bugliosi
The Iraq Historic Allegations Team, or IHAT, was established with honourable intentions. But, of the many thousands of allegations put to IHAT, only a small proportion merited full investigation, and only a handful might lead to a prosecution. Some claims were entirely spurious.

Alan Dershowitz

Michael Klare
I, you know, am all over the place — every category of pictures I have made, good, bad or indifferent. I could not make, like Hitchcock did, one Hitchcock picture after another. … I wanted to do a Hitchcock picture, so I did `Witness for the Prosecution,’ then I was bored with it, so I moved on.
Billy Wilder
And there had to be a dagger thrust in the heart of the left to tell them that you are no longer gonna give five years for a Smith Act prosecution or one year for Contempt of Court, but we’re gonna kill ya!
Julius Rosenberg
The Soviet Union was a one-party state. In such states, enemies of the party become enemies of the state, and the state can punish with full weight of prosecution.
Mimi Kennedy
Anti-Semitic publications have existed in Germany for centuries. A book I had, written by Dr. Martin Luther, was, for instance, confiscated. Dr. Martin Luther would very probably sit in my place in the defendants’ dock today, if this book had been taken into consideration by the Prosecution.
Julius Streicher

Anderson Cooper
If the prosecution of crime is to be conducted with so little regard for that protection which centuries of English law have given to the individual, we are indeed at the dawn of a new era; and much that we have deemed vital to our liberties, is a delusion.
Learned Hand
The only thing the defense has to do is take care of the client and see to it that they attack every weak spot on the prosecution’s case. It’s up to the judge to make sure that they don’t pull any fast ones.
Marcia Clark
Let no guilty man escape if it can be avoided. Be specially vigilant-or instruct those engaged in the prosecution of fraud to be-against all who insinuate that they have high influence to protect-or to protect them. No personal consideration should stand in the way of performing a public duty.
Ulysses S. Grant
If people with the very best intentions carry on prosecutions that are oppressive, the end may not always perhaps sanctify the means.

Will Hurd

Glenn Greenwald
Prosecution I have managed to avoid; but I have been arrested, charged in a police court, have refused to be bound over, and thereupon have been unconditionally released – to my great regret; for I have always wanted to know what going to prison was like.
Laurence Housman
Every neurosis is a primitive form of legal proceeding in which the accused carries on the prosecution, imposes judgment and executes the sentence: all to the end that someone else should not perform the same process.
Lionel Trilling
I think the prosecution had all the evidence in front of them to have won the case.
Kato Kaelin
The second one, the joint Truth and Friendship Commission, which we started now with Indonesia, that is the one that has been criticized; its terms of reference call for providing amnesty for those who cooperate in telling the truth. It does not lead to prosecution.

George Brauchler
The prosecution has to go with the evidence and the facts and tell the story as it happened. The defense has more creative freedom. All you have to do is look for a defense that works. But it doesn’t have to be the truth. Sometimes you get lucky and it is, but sometimes you don’t, and either way, it doesn’t matter.
Marcia Clark
There are bombshells that happen in court. Especially when the defense doesn’t share discovery of material the way the prosecution does, and so surprises always happen. Things pop out without warning.

Amanda Knox
The prosecution has an ethical duty to ensure not just that they get a conviction when the defendant is guilty, but also to ensure that they get it by means of fair trial, and that means a fair trial for the defense as well as the prosecution.
Marcia Clark
I think those who have a terminal illness and are in great pain should have the right to choose to end their own life, and those that help them should be free from prosecution.
Stephen Hawking
If we want to think about racism and how it might play out in drug policy, we have to think about the trial of George Zimmerman. We think about the prosecution, when they said “race is not a factor.” It’s so dishonest.
Carl Hart
So my own suspicion is that the attorney has stopped this prosecution because part of her defence was to question legality and that would have brought his advice into the public domain again and there was something fishy about the way in which he said war was legal.
Clare Short
Printers shall be liable to legal prosecution for printing and publishing false facts injurious to the party prosecuting: but they shall be under no other restraint.
Thomas Jefferson
Will Great Britain have an unwilling India dragged into war or a willing ally co-operating with her in the prosecution of a defence of true democracy?
Mahatma Gandhi

Roxane Gay
The love of life is necessary to the vigorous prosecution of any undertaking.
Samuel Johnson
After four years is when they [Barack Obama Justice Department] announced that no charges would be pursued and no prosecutions would be pursued [George W.Bush]. So Trump’s got time, is the point, folks.

Rush Limbaugh
In order to ensure our criminal justice system is fair and equitable, my office is conducting an immediate assessment of every prosecution within the past 10 years where these officers were involved. This is a shameful incident that the public deserves to have addressed in a meaningful and expeditious manner.
George Gascon
To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition.
Samuel Johnson
I discharge every person under punishment or prosecution under the Sedition Law, because I considered, and now consider, that law to be a nullity as absolute and palpable as if Congress had ordered us to fall down and worship a golden image.
Thomas Jefferson

The American Dream has always focused on building a better life for yourself and your family, striving for success, and even fleeing from religious prosecution.
Marc Veasey
No man on earth is truly free, All are slaves of money or necessity. Public opinion or fear of prosecution forces each one, against his conscience, to conform.
While the prosecution has said this is about the defendants lies, one worries that those lies already have been buried under too much discussion of technical issues. The jury may be lost already.
David Berg
People who prepare false or fraudulent tax returns risk criminal prosecution and, upon conviction, substantial time in jail.

Human justice is very prolix, and yet at times quite mediocre; divine justice is more concise and needs no information from the prosecution, no legal papers, no interrogation of witnesses, but makes the guilty one his own informer and helps him with eternity’s memory.
Soren Kierkegaard
We ought to be very cautious and circumspect in the prosecution of magic and heresy. The attempt to put down these two crimes may be extremely perilous to liberty.

Keir Starmer
If Hillary Clinton were prosecuted and if… Well, let’s just leave it at that. If she were prosecuted, there is not a Republican safe from liberal Democrat harassment and prosecution on there on after.
Rush Limbaugh
Strength, the American way, is not manifested by threats of criminal prosecution or police state methods.
Leadership is not manifested by coercion, even against the resented. Greatness is not manifested by unlimited pragmatism, which places such a high premium on the end justifying any means and any methods.
Margaret Chase Smith
There’s no great person that lived that didn’t go through scrutiny or ridicule and prosecution in all types of ways, to be who they are in history.
Bernard Hopkins
Nothing is more destructive of individual character than for a man to lose all faith in his own abilities for the prosecution of his work.
Johann Gottlieb Fichte
While no Muslim worthy of his name would lose his respect for God, the Prophet Muhammad, and other symbols of Islam, he might well refrain from using legal prosecution or violent reaction to those who do not show the same respect. My basis for this claim is nothing other than the holiest source of Islam, the Quran.
Mustafa Akyol
