Citizens United Calls On Attorney General Loretta Lynch To Appoint Special Counsel To Investigate Hillary Clinton Email Allegations

Today Citizens United President David N. Bossie Issued The Following Statement:

President Obama and his administration, specifically Attorney General Loretta Lynch, have a clear conflict of interest when it comes to any federal investigation or inquiry into the Hillary Clinton email allegations.

Democrat political appointees in the Obama Administration can’t be trusted to run an independent, unbiased, and thorough review of allegations surrounding someone who could very well be the Democrat nominee for president of the United States. Furthermore, Attorney General Lynch has a personal conflict of interest in this matter since she was first appointed United States Attorney by President Bill Clinton in 1999.

Only an impartial special counsel can investigate these allegations in a way that will restore a level of public trust in this Justice Department. Attorney General Lynch has an opportunity to transcend politics and move this investigation outside of the Justice Department by appointing a well-respected special counsel with credibility on both sides of the aisle. Lynch’s predecessor Eric Holder had a similar opportunity during the IRS political targeting allegations and he chose to keep that investigation under his control, which continues to raise questions to this day.

Citizens United Membership Wants Boehner Replaced As Speaker

Alarming Percentages Want Boehner Out, Disapprove Of Congress 

Washington, D.C. -- From July 20th to July 23rd, Citizens United surveyed a cross-section of our members nationwide about congressional approval and whether or not their Member of Congress should vote to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House if the election were held today. 4,025 Citizens United members participated in the poll.

“After four and a half years as Speaker, it’s become crystal clear that grassroots conservatives are through being patient with John Boehner. Less than 6 percent of those polled would want their Member of Congress to re-elect Congressman Boehner as Speaker if the election were held today. John Boehner has a problem with conservatives, because they are feeling used,” said David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United. “Conservatives put John Boehner in power, and they aren’t seeing the conservative agenda they were promised in 2010, 2012, and 2014. Conservatives are clearly ready for new leadership in the U.S. House. Furthermore, public polling indicates that congressional approval averages a feeble 15 percent. Our survey – which only polled grassroots conservatives – has congressional approval at just over 2 percent and that is downright alarming,” Bossie continued.

“These results build on the attitudes found in our presidential preference poll from last month. Our membership is totally fed up with the Washington establishment and the failed status quo that has its grip on Congress,” said Bossie. “In Citizens United’s online presidential preference poll in June, the top four finishers – Dr. Carson, Gov. Walker, Sen. Cruz and Mr. Trump – all anti-Washington, anti-establishment candidates, took up a whopping 65 percent of the vote. Today’s results on Congress and Speaker Boehner echo those results wholeheartedly,” said Bossie. The results are as follows:

Question 1: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Congress is currently doing?

Approve: 2.3%

Disapprove: 95.4%

No Opinion: 1.9%

Question 2: If the election for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives was being held today, would you want your Member of Congress to re-elect John Boehner as Speaker of the House?

Yes, Re-Elect Boehner As House Speaker: 5.6%

No, Don’t Re-Elect Boehner As House Speaker: 90.3%

No Opinion: 3.9%

Statement By Citizens United President David N. Bossie On The Continued Attempts To Revive The Export-Import Bank

The Export - Import Bank has been dead for three weeks and no one outside of Washington’s special interests noticed.

Grassroots conservatives put Republicans in the majority in Congress to reform a broken federal government.

It’s time for John Boehner to listen to those who made him Speaker.

Conservatives will be watching the actions of House leadership very closely in the coming days.

Bossie Statement on Supreme Court Same-Sex Marriage Ruling

Washington, D.C. – David Bossie, Citizens United President issued the following statement after the Supreme Court handed down its decision on same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges.

“Today’s ruling is a disappointment to millions of Americans who believe in traditional marriage. The Supreme Court has substituted its will for that of the people and the states.

This decision only motivates Citizens United to re-double our efforts to preserve religious liberty across our country. We will not sit back and watch the radical left continue to target Christians for our conservative values.”

Statement From David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United

"The outdated and predictable Clinton attacks on Peter Schweizer's much anticipated book, "Clinton Cash" are a blast from the past, just like the Clinton's themselves.

Throughout the scandal-plagued Clinton Administration, when damaging information was about to become public the Clinton attack machine would crank into high gear.

First you smear the author, then you smear the media for reporting on the book, then you call the allegations old news, and then you say the allegations amount to a political witch hunt that are 100percent false. This would happen every time, like clockwork. All these years later - what we all now know - is that this means what's in the book is true.

Every American who cares about the future of their country should read this book."

David Bossie bio:

Citizens United President David N. Bossie previously served as Chief Investigator for the U.S. House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton Administration.

In this capacity, Bossie led the way on several high profile investigations during the scandal-plagued 1990s, such as Whitewater, Travelgate, and the campaign finance probe, which resulted in more than 100 individuals fleeing the country or invoking the 5th Amendment.

Citizens United Files New FOIA Lawsuit Against State Department

Washington, DC - Today, Citizens United filed a lawsuit to compel the Department of State to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) and release documents in response to four FOIA requests that Citizens United has filed.

"History taught us one thing about Hillary Clinton, it takes a court order for her to play by the same set of rules as everyone else,” said, David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Last Friday, United States District Court Judge Gladys Kessler ordered the release of documents relating to Hillary Clinton’s overseas travel while serving as Secretary of State. Today, we urge the District Court to compel the release of additional documents in response to FOIA requests that have gone unfilled for 10 months.”

On May 15, 2014 Citizens United filed a FOIA request for communications between Kris Balderston and Teneo Consulting founder Doug Band. The State Department, by law had twenty working days (June 13, 2014) to produce any and all responsive documents, unless they were subject to an exemption from FOIA.

On July 29, 2014 Citizens United filed three FOIA requests. The first request sought correspondence between Huma Abedin and Teneo Consulting officials. The second request sought correspondence between Cheryl Mills and officials at the Clinton Foundation. The third request sought correspondence between Huma Abedin and Clinton Foundation officials.

The State Department failed to produce any substantive response to Citizens United’s requests by the August 26, 2014 statutory deadline.

As of March 16, 2015 the State Department has failed to produce any records in response to these Citizens United FOIA requests. Citizens United’s only recourse is to ask the Court to compel the Department of State to comply with the law.
