End Citizen’s United Talks About The Russian Support For President Trump

Much has been made about the divisive talking point and whether or not President Donald Trump’s election campaign was directly run or influenced by Russian government officials. It’s likely to be a case that’s not resolved for some time, but in the meantime many political activists have come to the understanding that big money and foreign governments should have no influence in the US Elections. Fighting for this cause is End Citizens United, a grassroots activist group whose mission is to end corporate corruption in US Elections and a group that’s spoken up about the Trump campaign and possible financial ties to Russia.

Much of End Citizens United’s focus on this issue has been how the Russian government purchased Facebook ads that they believe directly influenced the 2016 election. Just how much of those ads were purchased and how much they were tilted towards then candidate Trump is still unknown, but End Citizens United would like to see a change in how foreign governments can intervene in campaign ads. They would also like to see a change in the way candidates can receive funds including some that they say are received in private donations. End Citizens United supports a bill that’s currently sitting in the House known as the DISCLOSE Act which would require 100% disclosure of all campaign finance money.

End Citizens United is completely run by grassroots people who would like to see an end to politicians reaching office completely under the influence of the large corporations and single billionaire donors. Their foundation was founded in 2015 in reaction to a decision made the US Supreme Court in 2010 that favored Citizens United over the Federal Elections Commission and brought about more big money spending in local and federal elections. End Citizens United has since come out and sought to get politicians in office who can get more fair election laws passed and restore political power to the people.

End Citizens United is run by several notable activists including President Tiffany Muller who is recognized as growing the PAC from a small non-profit into one that now has millions of members from around the US and relies on individual donations usually as small as $10. Some notable candidates End Citizens United has supported include Senators Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, and Catherine Cortez-Masto in Nevada, but most notably they backed 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders who’s seen as the ultimate champion against big money. End Citizens United has also recently spoken up about attempts to repeal the Johnson Amendment, an act set forth by President Lyndon B. Johnson that prevented the influence of church money in political elections.
