Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

FEC Chair: Illegal for Candidates to Solicit Foreign Help in U.S. Elections

HeadlineOct 04, 2019

Trump’s appeal to foreign leaders to investigate the Bidens appears to be a direct violation of campaign finance law. Federal Elections Commission Chair Ellen Weintraub retweeted a statement she wrote last June, warning, “It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election. This is not a novel concept.” Trump may be getting what he wants: The Wall Street Journal is reporting Ukraine’s top prosecutor is reviewing past investigations into a gas company linked to Joe Biden’s son, and may reopen investigations amid pressure from President Trump.
