Tom Fitton is the President of Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption.
As president of Judicial Watch since 1998—and with nearly 25 years’ experience in conservative public policy—Fitton helped turn Judicial Watch into America’s largest and most effective government watchdog organization.
He has testified before Congress and is an internationally recognized expert on government corruption, election integrity, immigration enforcement, and open government. Under his leadership, Judicial Watch was named one of Washington’s top 10 most effective government watchdog organizations by The Hill newspaper.
Fitton is the author of the New York Times best-sellers Clean House: Exposing Our Government’s Secrets and Lies and The Corruption Chronicles. He is the executive producer of the documentary movie District of Corruption.
In 2015, the American Conservative Union (ACU) awarded Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton with the Defender of the Constitution Award during its annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
Fitton obtained his BA from The George Washington University and resides in the Washington, DC, area with his family.
