Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie On The Iowa Caucus

Today’s historic results in Iowa is the first look at the growing excitement coming from within the conservative movement that will help elect a Republican president dedicated to reforming the failed status quo in Washington, D.C.  Both Ted Cruz and Donald Trump championed pro-American, anti-establishment policies in Iowa, sending a clear message to conservatives across the country.  We need conservative leaders who are true Washington outsiders to repeal and replace Obamacare, stop illegal immigration, fix our economy, and destroy Islamic terrorism.

Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie On The Clinton Foundation’s Unhealthy Relationship With The U.S. Government

Citizens United’s Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits have produced federal records that show how closely Hillary Clinton’s State Department worked with the Clinton Foundation.  This relationship made it easy for conflicts of interest and the appearance of conflicts to flourish.  How often did the interests of the U.S. government and the interests of the Clinton Foundation deviate and did this influence Secretary Clinton’s decisions?   For this reason, if Hillary Clinton is elected President, will Bill Clinton take a leave of absence from the Clinton Foundation and will the Hillary Clinton White House wall itself off from the Clinton Foundation so that future potential conflicts of interest can’t flourish?

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.

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.”

Citizens United's 8th Annual Turkeys For Our Troops Project

"Thanksgiving and Christmas are rapidly approaching and Citizens United is continuing to do something near and dear to our hearts: supporting members of our Armed Forces and military families however we can,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United.

For eight years now, we have sent holidays meals to troops and military families in need for our annual Turkeys for our Troops project.

On account of budget cuts and a sagging economy, times are especially tough for many of our men and women in uniform and their families.

Every year we send more the 500 Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners out to our military families. This year we are aiming for more. This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for sacrificing everything for our freedom.

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and God bless America and our troops from your friends at Citizens United!”

Statement by Citizens United President David N. Bossie in response to 44 House Members calling for a Special Counsel in Clinton Email case

“We are pleased that 44 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives have joined Citizens United and Senator John Cornyn in calling for Attorney General Loretta Lynch to appoint an impartial special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton’s email arrangement. Democrat political appointees at the Justice Department cannot be expected to thoroughly investigate a person who may turn out to be the Democrat nominee for President of the United States. Furthermore, Attorney General Lynch has a personal conflict of interest in this matter since President Bill Clinton appointed her United States Attorney in 1999. Citizens United first called for a special counsel in this case on July 29th.”

Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie On Liberal Media Bias In the 2016 Presidential Election:

“The media bias laboratory called The New York Times is at it again, this time “investigating” Senator Ted Cruz’s father about what his “contemporaries” in Cuba somehow recollected from more than a half century ago.

Recently, it was the ridiculous story about Senator Marco Rubio’s driving record, then it was onto nitpicking points in Dr. Ben Carson’s biography from decades ago without knowing the full facts of the story.

Now it’s on to Senator Cruz’s dad. The American people know media bias when then see it and The New York Times just reinforced that.

President Barack Obama swept into power because he was never fully vetted. The New York Times and other like-minded “mainstream media entities” ignored blatant discrepancies in his past because they support Obama’s far left ideology.

I’m still waiting to see Obama’s college transcripts and his college thesis on Soviet Nuclear Disarmament. However, the American people will never see those records because The New York Times don’t want the American people to see those records.

I encourage the Republican candidates for president and all fair-minded Americans to keep pushing back hard against the plague that is liberal mainstream media bias and expose it for the fraud that it is.”

Statement from David Bossie on the Passing of Fred Thompson

Fred Thompson was a wonderful friend. My heartfelt sorrow goes out to his wife Jeri and their children during this difficult time.

I’ll always remember Fred as a principled conservative, a man of character and a proud father. I’ll miss his friendship and voice during these challenging times. Fred Thompson was a giant and his impact will be long remembered.

Statement by Citizens United President David N. Bossie on Boehner-Obama-McConnell Budget Deal:

Citizens United and our 500,000 grassroots conservative members nationwide are opposed to the latest disastrous Boehner-Obama-McConnell budget deal. It increases the debt limit by $1.5 trillion - with nothing in return - and busts the successful budget caps by $80 billion that were put in place in 2011.

When Bill Clinton left office in 2001 our national debt stood at $5 trillion. When George W. Bush left office in 2009 our national debt had jumped to $10 trillion. Because of this deal, when Barack Obama leaves office our national debt will be nearly $20 trillion. When the history books are written, they will say that Boehner and McConnell had the opportunity to stop the madness and put America back on a sound fiscal track, but sadly declined.
