David N. Bossie has served as president of Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation since 2001.
Bossie is the former Chief Investigator for the United States House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight. During Bill Clinton’s two terms as president, he led investigations ranging from the Whitewater land deal to the transfer of dual-use technology to China and to foreign fundraising in the 1996 Clinton re-election campaign. He has authored four books, including the best selling Intelligence Failure: How Clinton’s National Security Policy Set the Stage for 9/11.
In 2010, Citizens United won a landmark First Amendment decision at the United States Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The case, which saw the government assert during oral arguments that it had the Constitutional authority to ban political books, struck down two decades of unconstitutional restrictions on free speech. Most recently, Bossie was ranked number two in Politico’s top 50 most influential.
As president of Citizens United Productions, Bossie has produced 25 documentaries since 2004, most recently, Rocky Mountain Heist hosted by Michelle Malkin, Occupy Unmasked featuring the late conservative icon Andrew Breitbart, Our Sacred Honor with Senator Rick Santorum, The Gift of Life with Governor Mike Huckabee, and the award winning films Nine Days That Changed The World and Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny hosted by Callista and Newt Gingrich.
