Citizens United President David N Bossie statement on President Obama’s Supreme Court nomination
“It’s disappointing that President Obama disregarded Vice President Biden’s advice from 1992 and refused to honor the decades long tradition of not putting forward a Supreme Court nomination during an election year.
I have confidence that the Republican-controlled Senate, put in power by grassroots conservative voters, will stand strong for principle and precedent and not budge on this process until 2017.
Senators McConnell, Grassley and the rest of the Republican Senators must not allow the Supreme Court to drastically shift to the left by considering this nominee.
Furthermore, Merrick Garland would be a judicial activist who would seek to legislate from the bench, disregard the Constitution, and methodically hammer away at the Bill of Rights."
Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie on today’s Joint Status Report in Citizens United’s FOIA Litigation
“In today’s filing, the State Department finally disclosed to the court that it located 2,000 “retired”, unsearched, and previously unknown records of former Secretary Clinton, Huma Abedin, and Cheryl Mills that may be responsive to our FOIA requests in this lawsuit.”
“With this 11th hour revelation, the State Department has missed its court ordered deadline to finish the production of documents in this case.”
“These newly discovered records could impact document production in other Citizens United FOIA lawsuits as well as cases involving other plaintiffs.”
“Citizens United first filed these FOIAs in 2014 and filed the lawsuit to pry the records loose in April 2015. These records pertain to Clinton donors Gilbert Chagoury and Rajiv Fernando.”
“The public has a right to inspect records that are in the possession of their government. These delay tactics by the Obama Administration look like nothing more than an assist to former Secretary Clinton.”
“This latest declaration is more of the constant “drip, drip, drip” that Judge Sullivan spoke of last week.”
Citizens United Demands Details of Bill Clinton’s 2012 “North Korea invitation”
In May 2012, Clinton Foundation Foreign Policy Advisor Amitabh Desai sent the attached email to State Department senior staff members Cheryl Mills, Jacob Sullivan, and Michael Fuchs with the subject line “North Korea invitation.” The email chain makes clear that the invitation for President Bill Clinton “came via” Secretary Clinton’s brother Tony Rodham.
The email chain from Desai states in pertinent part:
“Dear Cheryl, we’d welcome your feedback on the attached invitation – would USG have any concerns? Thanks, Ami”
“This came via Tony Rodham.”
The State Department declined to produce to Citizens United the referenced attachment which would seemingly provide details of the “North Korea invitation” in question.
“North Korea is a rogue regime that is a threat to the security of the civilized world. Now, with its nuclear test and subsequent rocket launch, North Korea has inserted itself into the 2016 U.S. presidential race. The Clinton Foundation and/or the State Department should immediately release the details of President Bill Clinton’s 2012 ‘North Korea invitation’ that is referenced in the attached State Department email that was obtained by Citizens United through a FOIA lawsuit over the summer of 2015,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United.
“The Clintons are longtime supporters of transparency in government and releasing these records would be consistent with their rhetoric. The public has a right to know the details of what North Korea was offering President Clinton,” Bossie continued.
“Similarly, Hillary Clinton is running for president of the United States and it’s in the public interest to know the extent of her brother’s relationship with North Korea and/or North Korea interests. How would this relationship impact Hillary Clinton’s decision making with respect to North Korea?” Bossie concluded.
Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia
America lost one of its treasures today with the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Since being appointed to the High Court by President Ronald Reagan thirty years ago, there was no greater defender of our justice system, the rule of law and the Constitution than Justice Scalia.
Justice Scalia was a shining example of American exceptionalism and his intellect on the bench was unmatched.
As a conservative American, I lost a hero today. Antonin Scalia can never truly be replaced and his service to our beloved country will never be forgotten.
May God bless the family of Justice Scalia at this very difficult time.
Statement From Citizens United President David N. Bossie On Jeb Bush’s Liberal Position On Citizens United
Jeb Bush's true colors just resurfaced. He has embraced the left’s view of the First Amendment. Jeb Bush now agrees with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to limit free speech in America.
George W. Bush signed the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold legislation into law in the first place, so it's no surprise Jeb Bush has the same severely flawed view of the Constitution that his brother did.
Jeb Bush is a hypocrite. His Super PAC has raised over one hundred million dollars, but it hasn’t helped him one bit.
Jeb Bush’s problem isn’t Citizens United. It’s Jeb Bush.
His weak finish in Iowa and last stand tomorrow in New Hampshire make his opinion less and less a factor with every passing hour.
Jeb Bush could use a lesson on the Constitution from Ted Cruz.
Statement by Citizens United President David N. Bossie on newly disclosed Wendy Sherman video
“The newly disclosed 2013 video of former Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman discussing how Hillary Clinton sent sensitive government information with her blackberry device is the latest reason why Attorney General Loretta Lynch must appoint an impartial special counsel to investigate these constantly evolving and extremely serious allegations. A federal investigation into the Democratic frontrunner for President of the United States during an election season is an extraordinary circumstance. Attorney General Lynch must do what is right by our justice system and that is to get this investigation out of the hands of Democratic political appointees at the Department of Justice immediately.”
Now More Than Ever, AG Loretta Lynch Should Appoint A Special Counsel In Clinton Email Case
In the past week, we’ve learned two critical facts in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. First and foremost, an email has surfaced in which Hillary Clinton seemingly instructs a member of her senior staff to break the law. Secondly, we now know the FBI has expanded its investigation of Hillary Clinton to include a public corruption aspect having to do with how her State Department interfaced with her family foundation.
This has led to speculation that the FBI will almost certainly recommend criminal charges to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Loretta Lynch should do herself a favor and take this all-important decision out of the hands of Democrat political appointees at the Justice Department and admit what everyone already knows - that she has a clear conflict of interest in this case. By appointing an impartial special counsel, Loretta Lynch would be putting the justice system and the rule of law above politics.
Citizens United first called for a special counsel on July 29, 2015.
Breitbart: Citizens United Video Compares Bill Clinton To Bill Cosby
The conservative nonprofit group Citizens United is comparing Bill Clinton’s lurid history with women to that of accused serial rapist Bill Cosby.
Clinton, who has been photographed schmoozing with Cosby on multiple occasions, is coming under fire for his alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick in the 1970s.
Broaddrick said in a tweet to this reporter that she was audited in 2000, while Clinton was president, and she has also claimed that Hillary Clinton tried to intimidate and silence her to prevent political fallout from the alleged crime. Similarly, a female New Hampshire state legislator who confronted Hillary Clinton over the Broaddrick allegations was intimidated by the Secret Service and is now getting threats on her safety and the safety of her children.
The Citizens United video uses audio of Broaddrick describing the alleged rape scene to Breitbart’s Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein. In her first interview in nearly a decade, Broaddrick spoke exclusively on Klein’s weekend talk radio program in November.
Cosby, meanwhile, is on trial for allegedly drugging a woman and taking advantage of her sexually. The onetime “Kids Say The Darndest Things” star has been accused by numerous women of similar acts.

Citizens United President David N. Bossie Expresses Opposition to President Obama's Executive Actions to Restrict Second Amendment Rights
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Citizens United President David N. Bossie issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s executive action targeting gun ownership in America:
“President Obama’s unilateral decision to restrict gun ownership is an assault on American’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and the latest dangerous example of this president behaving like a monarch.
Obama’s decision to target law abiding citizens seeking to protect themselves and their families instead of Islamic terrorists is outrageous. The legislative and judicial branches of government must reject any infringement of our Second Amendment rights that are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.”
National Review: McConnell Can Make Super PACs Obsolete
As Congress and the Obama White House work to enact a funding bill to avoid yet another possible government shutdown, a rift has developed within the conservative community.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would like to repeal the limits on how much political parties may spend in coordination with their candidates. The congressional Freedom Caucus is skeptical of the proposal, because party spending is often heavily tilted toward “establishment” candidates. Other conservative groups, such as the Center for Competitive Politics, enthusiastically back the measure, saying the limits are unconstitutional.
