Dear Democracy Now! visitor,

You turn to Democracy Now! for ad-free news you can trust. Maybe you come for our daily headlines. Maybe you come for in-depth stories that expose corporate and government abuses of power. Democracy Now! brings you crucial reporting like our coverage from the front lines of the Dakota Access pipeline protests or news about this unprecedented US presidential election—and our coverage is never paid for by the oil and gas companies or the campaigns and superPACs. We produce our daily news hour at a fraction of the budget of a commercial news operation—all without ads, government funding or corporate sponsorship. How? This model of news depends on your support. Today, less than 1% of our visitors support Democracy Now! with a donation each year. If even 3% of our website visitors donated just $8 per month, we could cover our basic operating expenses for a year. Pretty amazing right? If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

Non-commercial news needs your support.

We rely on contributions from you, our viewers and listeners to do our work. If you visit us daily or weekly or even just once a month, now is a great time to make your monthly contribution.

John Nichols

political writer for The Nation Magazine. He is also the associate editor of the Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Senate committee investigating campaign finance abuses yesterday focused again on the activities of Democratic fund-raiser John Huang. Republicans questioned why Huang frequently left his Commerce Department office and walked across Pennsylvania Avenue to use an office belonging to an Arkansas investment banking firm.

Taped excerpts:
• Senator Susan Collins, a Republican from Maine, questioning Paula Green, a secretary at Stevens Incorporated.
• Senator Max Cleland, a Democrat from Georgia.
• Senator Robert Torricelli, a New Jersey Democrat, questions John Cobb, a researcher for the Governmental Affairs Committee.
