Citizens United President David N. Bossie Responds to State Department Petronas Email

Statement by CU President David N. Bossie on newly released State Department-Clinton Foundation-Petronas email:

“The Clinton Foundation seeking a donation from Petronas, a state-owned Malaysian oil company who did business with Iran, is just the latest indication that the Clintons will take money and do business with anyone. Right after Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department highlighted a $150 million dollar deal involving Petronas, the Clinton Foundation asks if they can approach the company’s CEO for a donation. This email gives the appearance that the State Department and the Clinton Foundation were practicing political cronyism.”


Citizens United Releases New FOIA Obtained State Department Documents Involving Bill Clinton's Speech Invitations

A statement from David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United:

Bill Clinton seeking to do business with North Korea and the Congo is disturbing. These emails further demonstrate that Bill Clinton would do anything for money and that the State Department's vetting process was a farce. It’s outrageous that the Secretary of State’s husband was attempting to take money from a known terrorist nation and another with a terrible human rights records.

North Korea constantly threatens the United States and our allies with nuclear war and the Congo’s tragic record on women rights is well documented.

How can Hillary be trusted to put America’s interests first when her husband and brother Tony Rodham were seeking to do business with rogue regimes?

Citizens United Releases New State Department Documents

Statement from David Bossie, President of Citizens United.

Citizens United began researching Hillary Clinton's tenure at the State Department over two years ago as we entered the research and pre-production phase of Hillary, The Sequel. We began filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests in May of 2014 and in 2015, Citizens United was forced to go to Federal Court after State Department was non-responsive. Citizens United filed six federal lawsuits in U.S. District Court to force the state department to comply with federal FOIA laws. The attached documents are the result of a federal Judge ordering the State Department to comply with federal law and represents a small percentage of the documents requested.

As a result of federal court orders, Citizens United expects to receive more documents from Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department and we look forward to sharing those documents with the American people. It’s critical that American's understand how the Clinton machine operated inside the state department.

Below are the newly released State Department documents:

Citizens United Responds to Lois Lerner's Email Attacking Citizens United

Today, Citizens United President David N. Bossie made the following statement in response to Lois Lerner's email attacking Citizens United:

"Ms. Lerner and the Obama Administrations efforts to silence conservative non-profits as a result of our Supreme Court decision are disgusting. Citizens United led the charge that restored free political speech with our Supreme Court victory against the government because we strongly believe it’s not the government’s job to decide who should be allowed to speak. Lerner’s actions as an IRS bureaucrat are criminal and the inaction by the Obama administration is troubling. We look forward to an administration that finally pursues this injustice."


Citizens United Urges A Special Counsel Be Appointed To Investigate The Handling Of Classified Documents On Hillary Clinton’s Private Server

Today Citizens United President David N. Bossie made the following statement:

Now that it's been established that top secret documents were on Hillary Clinton's email server, Citizens United reiterates our call for a special counsel in this case.

Does anyone believe that the Obama Justice Department, with a former Clinton appointee as Attorney General, can conduct a thorough and impartial investigation?

With our national security at stake, now more than ever Attorney General Lynch needs to rise above politics and appoint a special counsel to investigate.


Citizens United Renews Call For Special Counsel In Clinton Email Case

Today Citizens United President David N. Bossie made the following statement:

I’m pleased the FBI is conducting an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server and her alleged storage of classified documents.

This investigation is the first step in determining if Hillary Clinton compromised our national security by running her State Department emails through a private server in her New York home. Once again, I urge Attorney General Lynch to appoint an impartial special counsel to investigate these allegations.

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.”
