  • Secret Donors Helped Finance Trump Dossier Team Research After Election (Partners In Slime)

    The team of opposition researchers behind the infamous anti-Trump dossier embraced by the FBI were paid big bucks to continue trying to dig up dirt on Russian meddling in American politics – even after the 2016 presidential election. That revelation, buried inside a 243-page report released by House Intelligence Committee Republicans last week, has sparked new speculation about the identities of the secretive donors who were funding the post-election project. According to the House Intelligence Committee report, Daniel J. Jones – the president of the Penn Quarter Group and a former staffer for Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein – “secured the...

    A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution. Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal. F*** outta here with...

    The nation’s top conservative donors and fundraisers are increasingly alarmed by the prospect of a midterm election wave that could cost Republicans control of the House. But the party’s deep-pocketed donors aren’t ready to abandon their efforts to keep the House in GOP hands — not yet at least. More than a half-dozen senior Republican donors and fundraisers interviewed by The Hill acknowledged that protecting the Senate majority might at some point become the only sensible investment for Republican donors. There is growing frustration among donors with the GOP-controlled House — most recently over the passage of a massive budget...
  • Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson offers to help pay for Jerusalem embassy

    The Trump administration is considering an offer from Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson to pay for at least part of a new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, four U.S. officials told The Associated Press. Lawyers at the State Department are looking into the legality of accepting private donations to cover some or all of the embassy costs, the administration officials said. The discussions are occurring as the new embassy clears its final bureaucratic hurdles. On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ended weeks of delay by signing off on a security plan for moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy...

    Evan McMullin doesn’t want you to know who his donors are. The failed Never Trump presidential candidate has stayed in the public eye as a sort of attack dog against President Trump and other Republicans, while keeping secret the names of the donors paying him to do so. McMullin’s recently founded non-profit organization, Stand Up Republic, jumped into the Alabama Senate race this week with a $500,000 ad buy against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. One of the ads features a man saying Roy Moore “makes Republicans and us Christians look bad.”
  • Clinton Foundation has bumpy record on donor disclosure

    The Hill ^ | 11/28/17 | John Solomon
    In August 2016, then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton took on critics of her husband’s charitable foundation by saying the former first family “went above and beyond” to disclose their donors to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest when she served as America’s top diplomat. On the face, Clinton’s statement is true. A December 2008 voluntary ethics agreement the Clinton Foundation and incoming secretary of State executed with the Obama administration, before called for, disclosed all donors to the Foundation and its various initiatives, something normal charities don’t have to do. But over the years, the Clintons’ compliance...
  • Senate GOP Campaign Arm Severs Financial Ties To Roy Moore

    A day after explosive allegations of sexual assault surfaced against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, the Republican Party’s senate campaign arm has severed financial ties with the embattled former state supreme court justice. A joint fundraising committee benefitting Moore and a handful of Republican Party organs filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Friday removing the National Republican Senatorial Committee as one of its beneficiaries. Going forward, the committee’s fundraising will benefit Moore’s Senate campaign, the Alabama Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee but not the NRSC. The NRSC’s removal from the account is the most concrete step...

    Frustrated with Republican incumbents’ inability to pass any significant legislation, the Republican donor class started meeting with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon over his plan to primary establishment Republicans. Former White House chief strategist and Breitbart News executive chairman Steve Bannon met with notable Republican donors, many whom remain frustrated by the Republican establishment’s inability to pass significant legislation such as repealing and replacing Obamacare, tax reform, and funding a southern border wall. The Republican donor class will consider backing Bannon’s campaign to challenge Senate Republican incumbents in the war against Senate Majority Leader...
  • GOP donors say Senate RINOs hurting the party — and they’re right

    10/09/2017 1:57:30 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 25 replies
    This #neverTrump attitude among RINOs in the Senate is costing the Republican Party support. Major Republican donors are lamenting inaction in D.C. on major campaign pledges including tax reform and the repeal of Obamacare as a major reason why fundraising is down, placing most of the blame on #neverTrump #RINOs in the Senate. As reported by Fox News, political fundraiser Dan Palmer said Saturday that raising money for coming races has been difficult thanks to the obstinance of so-called “Republicans” (like John McCain, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and a handful of others). “I’ve been around Republican politics for 30 some years and...
  • Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

    Earlier this week we told you about how Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff had bluntly told a group of major donors that they should tell Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment that they would “…not only stop donating, I would form a coalition of all the other major donors, and just say two things. We’re definitely not giving to you, No. 1. And No. 2, if you don’t have this done by Dec. 31, we’re going out, we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

    Fueled by a string of fundraising appeals from President Trump to his supporters, the Republican Party is on track to raise more money from small-dollar contributions than it has collected in more than a decade. The influx of cash from Trump’s base is helping the GOP amass a major advantage as the parties prepare to battle for control of Congress in the 2018 elections, with the Republican National Committee pulling in nearly twice as much money overall as its Democratic counterpart this year. The RNC’s success with small donors illustrates how the Republican Party, long a center of the political...

    House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it's "overzealous" to call for a purge on GOP donors who haven't supported the administration's agenda. He was responding to a recent remark from Vice President Pence's chief of staff Nick Ayers. “Maybe he got a little overzealous," Scalise said on NBC News' "Meet the Press with Chuck Todd" in an interview set to air on Sunday. Scalise's comments come after Ayers said wealthy Republican donors should "purge" members of Congress who have not been supportive of President Trump's agenda.

    PJ Media ^ | 10-04-2017 | Michael van der Galien
    Not too long ago, the British Tories were actually conservative. This meant that, among other things, they valued the individual and his rights. One of his most important rights was, the average Tory would've told you ten years ago, the "right" to be the master of his own body. Well, those days belong to the past now. Today, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that everyone will now be considered an organ donor unless they opt out of the system. This means, in effect, that the state will decide what will happen with your body when you die, unless you...

    Almost a year and a half after promising to detail a “stunning number of donors” who sought favors and didn’t get them, Mayor de Blasio published an op-ed containing only two new examples. The op-ed — which does not name a single contributor, not even two he references who have since been arrested in a police corruption case — was published on the website Medium on the Friday ahead of the long Labor Day Weekend.
