He says the New York Times has created a roadmap on how to investigate the President … if the Democrats win the House in November.
Kimberly Reed’s newest film, “Dark Money”, is a powerful expose of the influence of anonymous donors in political campaigns. She says growing up in Montana gave her a front row seat to the corrupting influence of money in politics and the perfect setting to tell that story.
