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.


Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie on IRS Commissioner’s impeachment resolution in the U.S. House:

When the IRS and Department of Justice become nothing more than arms of the Democrat National Committee, the legislative branch as a co-equal branch of government, must act.


Membership Poll: Grassroots Conservatives Voice Massive Support For Gowdy Committee, Special Counsel Appointment

Washington, D.C. -- From October 16th to October 20th, Citizens United surveyed a cross-section of our members nationwide about the House Select Benghazi Committee’s work and whether or not Attorney General Loretta Lynch should appoint a special counsel to conduct an impartial investigation in the Hillary Clinton email case. Over 2,000 Citizens United members participated in the poll.

“The American people want the facts about the Benghazi terror attacks and Hillary Clinton’s email server to see the light of day,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Hillary Clinton and her cronies are politicizing the Gowdy Committee investigation just to distract from the important questions that are being asked,” Bossie continued.

“Regarding a special counsel, the facts are clear. Loretta Lynch has a conflict of interest as a former Clinton political appointee; and Barack Obama is clearly conflicted because he benefits politically if the FBI investigation goes away, as his recent 60 Minutes interview demonstrates. This investigation cannot be supervised by Democrat political appointees inside the White House and Justice Department,” Bossie concluded.

The results are as follows:

Question 1: Do you approve or disapprove of the investigation being conducted by the House Benghazi Committee?

Strongly Approve: 81.8%

Approve: 9.1%

Disapprove: 2.6%

Strongly Disapprove: 4.5%

Don’t Know: 1.3%

Question 2: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: Attorney General Loretta Lynch has a conflict of interest in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server and therefore she should appoint an impartial special counsel to conduct the investigation.

Agree: 91.7%

Disagree: 4.3%

Don’t Know: 3.6%


Obama Statements On 60 Minutes Confirm Need For Special Counsel In Clinton Email Case

Yesterday on 60 Minutes, President Obama declared that Hillary Clinton's email discrepancies are all a big mistake and that our national security wasn’t compromised.

This is the latest and most compelling reason why this case requires an impartial special counsel to investigate.

When the President of the United States - who appoints the Attorney General - acts as judge and jury in a politically-charged case such as this, it should be crystal clear that the case needs to get out of the control of political appointees.

Attorney General Lynch must do what she knows it right and appoint a special counsel. Trust in government hangs in the balance.

Citizens United Scores A Big Win for Transparency Today

Citizens United President David N. Bossie Statement:

The public has a right to inspect these important documents in a timely manner and that’s what today’s ruling provides. If it weren’t for our FOIAs and subsequent lawsuits these records would remain exactly where Hillary Clinton wants them – in the shadows.

In government, sunlight is always the best disinfectant.
