    Finally someone is at least opening up the conversation. Stop allowing your government to be corporate shills.

    • It’s a feedback mechanism and as long as rural idiots probably with family income under $50K vote in people who pump their taxes and future debt obligations into the pockets of mostly wealthy city people, they will keep it up. And these rural idiots get angry at government and double down with Trump, who these people have been filling his pockets for years and he doubled down on that. I could care less about wedge issues and supreme court decisions on them, or Alabama banning abortions or sending a loaded gun to every voter in the state. I care less in the business side of Republicans though financially I resemble a Republican.

      @joshua traman Never underestimate the anger of the American people, kid. Trump is the most hated president in history. The 2018 midterms were a direct referendum on Trump and the Republican party — and they were slaughtered in that election. You can expect this election to be the biggest blue wave in history.

  2. If ALL money was out of politics and politicians realized they had a better shot at getting elected through the people and through not massive corporations & interest groups, politicians would be forced to answer to the people.

    Talk about the Deep State, Dark Money is truly the cancer that’s killing this country and the so-called Supreme Court thinks it’s OK to have secretive groups, foreign or otherwise run the show.

      Trump is aiding the real deep state. It’s a corporate oligarchy which pays Trump.

      @joshua traman Do you have anymore low IQ comments you’d like to share? [INSERT 10 EMOJIS HERE]

  6. As a Marine veteran, I prefer a man who will burn the flag and then wrap himself in the Constitution, to a man who will burn the Constitution and then wrap himself in the flag.

    Trump and his followers are trying to burn the Constitution, while wrapping themselves in the flag. But what they fail to realize, is that without the Constitution, that flag means absolutely nothing. It’s just a piece of cloth, no different than any other piece of cloth.

  7. Dark Money for the Con men on the Job including notorious Donald J Trump .

  8. Great job congressman, invisible price tag on their forehead.

  9. Whitehouse absolutely NAILED IT!! This rabbit hole is deep and it goes back years upon years, including Bush vs Gore. Judiciary is not independent, it’s been corrupted. Far too many “coincidences.” I expect some hanging chad defenses in key battleground states. We’ve seen this movie before.

  10. The Corporate, lobbyists & dark money in politics has stop! It should be illegal!
    ✝️🙏God bless Sheldon Whitehouse!🙏✝️

    • Lol ummmm yea no it was revealed during the hearing that Whitehouse gets alot of dark money, planned parenthood being one of them, which he didnt deny, google,Google,, fortune five companies…..yea they all pay millions in dark money which you can easily find scholarly articles about it online….. you can also do research on it yourself. Maby you should have watched the entire confirmation rather than a clip……. kind of difficult to have an argument if you dont even know what your talking about….. but you are correct both it should be illegal but your also wrong because dems get far more money, just look at the 2016 donations, they got over 425 million in donations, republicans got 190 million, either way its bad.

      @Megadog That’s a LIE, pathetic!

    • Cynthia Gonzalez | October 15, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      @Rico Raynon You’re our of your mind 250 million vs a tenth of that is no where NEAR the Dark Money that the Republicans have around our court system. The Republicans are corrupt and compromised PERIOD! 🤷🏽‍♀️

    • https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/2016-election/campaign-finance/

      Democrats get far more money from super pacs, which are the exact organizations that Whitehouse is trying to talk against…… it makes no sense because they’ve been taking far more donations from large companies for years and yet criticize others.

    • Honestly the only democrat that actually doesn’t take money from super pays and means white he says is bernie sanders….. and hillary sabotaged his campaign with all the money she recieved….which was 1.4 billion lol

  11. Cleaning up this citizens united shell organization for dark money is the queen swamp rat monster in the DC swamp .Trump and Mcconnell are at the top of the Sewer Swamp food chain.

    Whitehouse was brilliant. So glad he presented so effectively.

  13. I am so glad for Mr Whitehouse and his courage to fight this crooked administration with truth and knowledge. Thank you Sir.

    Whitehouse for the White House. Hopefully he will not be seduced by power and wealth. Speak truth to power

  15. Thanks, Katy, for talking about this and showing Whitehouse’s brilliant demonstration to a wider audience!!
    I find this so key and mind-boggling. People need to know!

  16. Money from politics needs to be eliminated, anonymous donors are pushing conservatism and corruption in all forms in the government.

  17. The all-American psychopath creates the un-American theocracy. God help us.

    Which dark money is going to pay off Trump’s $400million in debt?

  19. We all know that the Federalist Society told t’rump who to nominate. The only judges he can even name are Jeanine and Judy! 😅😂🤣

  20. We should stop calling them “conservative judges.” They are NOT conservative. They are corrupt, and working solely for the billionaire class.
