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.”

Statement From David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United

"The outdated and predictable Clinton attacks on Peter Schweizer's much anticipated book, "Clinton Cash" are a blast from the past, just like the Clinton's themselves.

Throughout the scandal-plagued Clinton Administration, when damaging information was about to become public the Clinton attack machine would crank into high gear.

First you smear the author, then you smear the media for reporting on the book, then you call the allegations old news, and then you say the allegations amount to a political witch hunt that are 100percent false. This would happen every time, like clockwork. All these years later - what we all now know - is that this means what's in the book is true.

Every American who cares about the future of their country should read this book."

David Bossie bio:

Citizens United President David N. Bossie previously served as Chief Investigator for the U.S. House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight during the Clinton Administration.

In this capacity, Bossie led the way on several high profile investigations during the scandal-plagued 1990s, such as Whitewater, Travelgate, and the campaign finance probe, which resulted in more than 100 individuals fleeing the country or invoking the 5th Amendment.

Citizens United Files New FOIA Lawsuit Against State Department

Washington, DC - Today, Citizens United filed a lawsuit to compel the Department of State to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) and release documents in response to four FOIA requests that Citizens United has filed.

"History taught us one thing about Hillary Clinton, it takes a court order for her to play by the same set of rules as everyone else,” said, David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Last Friday, United States District Court Judge Gladys Kessler ordered the release of documents relating to Hillary Clinton’s overseas travel while serving as Secretary of State. Today, we urge the District Court to compel the release of additional documents in response to FOIA requests that have gone unfilled for 10 months.”

On May 15, 2014 Citizens United filed a FOIA request for communications between Kris Balderston and Teneo Consulting founder Doug Band. The State Department, by law had twenty working days (June 13, 2014) to produce any and all responsive documents, unless they were subject to an exemption from FOIA.

On July 29, 2014 Citizens United filed three FOIA requests. The first request sought correspondence between Huma Abedin and Teneo Consulting officials. The second request sought correspondence between Cheryl Mills and officials at the Clinton Foundation. The third request sought correspondence between Huma Abedin and Clinton Foundation officials.

The State Department failed to produce any substantive response to Citizens United’s requests by the August 26, 2014 statutory deadline.

As of March 16, 2015 the State Department has failed to produce any records in response to these Citizens United FOIA requests. Citizens United’s only recourse is to ask the Court to compel the Department of State to comply with the law.

Requesting former Secretary Clinton’s private schedules

Washington, D.C. –Today, Citizens United filed a FOIA request with the Department of State. The language of the request is below:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

According to public reporting, Secretary Hillary Clinton maintained a private schedule.1 During Secretary Clinton’s tenure, Lona Valmoro and Linda Dewan served as the Secretary’s schedulers.

The records I request can be described as follows:

Any and all records, in any format, that concern, mention, or reference a schedule, appointment, event, appearance, or any other anticipated commitment of presence or communication be it known by any other name, of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that was created by, sent by, and/or sent to, Secretary Clinton and/or the Secretary’s schedulers Lona Valmoro and/or Linda Dewan.

Where exemptions to the Freedom Of Information Act are discretionary, I ask you not withhold such records, even if they might qualify for withholding under the law. If you withhold any records as exempt, please redact the exempted portions and release the remainder of the records. Please release all reasonably segregable material. In any case where you withhold any records, please explain in writing any such denial.

Time Period: January 21, 2009 – February 1, 2013
