John Stewart talked with fired US Attorney David Iglesias. Iglesias claims he was fired because he refused to prosecute Democratic candidates without evidence of wrongdoing.

The former US Attorney used a Star Wars analogy to explain his employment in the Bush Administration. Iglesias said, “I thought I was working with the Jedi Knights and I was working with the Sith Lords.”
