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.

Breitbart: Conservatives Should Think Bigger On Immigration Ban

Donald Trump is right.

We are at war and our homeland security and immigration policies are a complete mess. The Syrian refugee issue and the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino have kick-started a much needed debate and have brought some alarming information to the American people.

It starts with basic government incompetence and the suffocating PC culture that Republican and Democrat establishment leaders are slaves to along with the liberal media. Hopefully Trump’s policy idea will start a substantive conversation, because does anyone believe that the United States Government has a firm grasp on who is trying to come into our country, who is already in our country, and what they are doing when they get here?

Couple that with President Obama’s total lack of interest in securing America and we find ourselves in the midst of a perfect storm.

The next president should enact an immigration moratorium or strict quotas across the board.

Breitbart: Don’t let Quentin Tarantino off the Hook

Quentin Tarantino must be concerned about the prospects of his upcoming movie, The Hateful Eight.

Why else would he go on television last week to backtrack and claim he’s “not anti-police” and “not a cop-hater”? Tarantino’s disgraceful public comments about police officers have created a backlash and rightfully so.

But just because Tarantino is feeling pressure from Hollywood bosses to rectify the situation doesn’t mean Americans should let him off the hook. Decent-minded Americans from across the political spectrum must boycott this film to make the statement that our police men and women are heroes, and that out of touch blowhards like Tarantino won’t get one cent of our money.

There are a lot of phony wars being promoted by liberals such as the war on women and war on minorities, but one of the real wars being waged by the Left is against hardworking and professional police officers across the United States.

Bretbart News: OVERSIGHT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY

In 1973, when Senate Watergate Committee counsel Fred Thompson famously asked, “Mr. Butterfield, are you aware of the installation of any listening devices in the Oval Office of the president?” the committee was under extreme pressure from the Nixon White House. Even in the face of a constitutional crisis, the committee plowed ahead and fulfilled its core constitutional duty of executive branch oversight within our system of checks and balances. The committee went on to prove that no one is above the law, not even the President of the United States.

Today, congressional investigators are under a lot of pressure as well. On Thursday a Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, when asked about the possibility of a thorough investigation into the Clinton email allegations, said, “They really don’t want to [mess] with us on this. Trust me.” This public threat from a Democrat Member of Congress tells me all I need to know about the still-unfolding Clinton email situation. Democrats are worried sick about the specter of a public congressional fact-finding investigation running parallel to the ongoing FBI investigation. But threats such as this – and there will be more – must not trump doing what is right, and that is to move forward with the investigation in Congress.

Washington Times: Why Congress needs to keep probing the Clinton cash register

The former first couple has been commingling public and personal business for years

Now that Hillary Clinton’s much anticipated congressional testimony is in the rearview mirror, the House Select Committee on Benghazi can move toward completing its investigation and issuing a final report. It’s also an appropriate time to urge standing congressional committees on both sides of the Capitol to press new investigations into a crony capitalism network the Clintons built inside the State Department. They ran a political cash register that blurred the lines between official government business and private enrichment and left behind many unanswered ethical questions.

The blueprint for this shakedown machine is laid bare in emails that the group I head, Citizens United, has been able to force into the public domain through Freedom of Information Act requests and subsequent lawsuits. Over the past several months, Citizens United has released many of these never-before-seen emails, and it prompted me to reminisce about the past

Breitbart: KING BARACK STRIKES AGAIN

Back in November, I penned an op-ed entitled “King Barack I.” In that piece, I expressed outrage over President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action regarding amnesty and illegal immigration. Thankfully, that disastrous plan has been stopped in federal court earlier this year – for the moment. Now, with only 15 months to go in his hopeless presidency, King Barack the First is turning his attention to unilateral action on gun control. Because his party only has a small minority in Congress, and gun control does not have anywhere near the popular support necessary to motivate lawmakers to risk limiting 2nd Amendment rights, the king appears poised to go around Congress again.

Monarchical efforts such as this by an imperial presidency have no place in our constitutional republic, but on this occasion Mr. Obama has overplayed his hand and has set himself and his fellow leftists up for a backlash from Americans across the political spectrum. Announcing that he would “politicize” the Oregon shooting to further his unpopular gun beliefs on the same day the tragedy occurred, and before any solid facts were released, was an overzealous blunder by an unchecked king. Most Americans have a keen sense of decency, and this move by Obama will be seen as anything but. Only out of touch liberals living in gated communities or The New York Times editorial board could see nothing wrong with the President’s rush to immediately politicize the horrific shooting rampage in Oregon.
