Description & Features+

Washington super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff came to town to start a revolution but ended up running a racket. Capitol Crimes follows the Abramoff money trail from Indian casinos in Louisiana to sweatshops in the Mariana Islands, from the Capitol Hill offices of the U.S. Family Network to the Moscow offices of Russia’s new oligarchs. What emerges is a tale of politics, greed, and the buying and selling of influence at the highest levels of power. Capitol Crimes shows how Abramoff rode a wave of corruption to enrich himself and promote his causes—and how he took others with him when he fell, including the majority leader of the House of Representatives, Tom DeLay. The two-hour documentary also includes a Bill Moyers discussion about the scandal with author Thomas Frank (What’s the Matter with Kansas?) and longtime Congress-watcher Norman Ornstein. A special bonus program, Buying the War, examines the failures of the Washington press corps during the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Capitol Crimes - In the world of Jack Abramoff, money equated to political power—and Abramoff had plenty of both. His rise coincided with a Republican push to dominate the world of Washington lobbyists, the so-called K Street Project. Abramoff and his associates took great pains to cover their tracks as they built their empire of influence and greed, but in the end the dots (and the dollar signs) got connected, and the truth began to emerge. Bill Moyers traces Abramoff’s deals from Native American casinos to unregulated factories in the Mariana Islands in this cogent examination of the staggeringly complex scandal. Disc 2 Buying the War - After the September 11, 2001, attacks on America, U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan to rid the country of the al-Qaeda terrorists responsible and their Taliban supporters. But some in Washington also worked to establish a link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11 and, thus, a rationale for invading Iraq. Bill Moyers investigates the role of the Washington press corps and why the hard questions were never asked during these deliberations.
