Heartland Institute is an "associate member" of the State Policy Network, a web of right-wing “think tanks”



The NTLC started accepting funding from the tobacco industry as early as 1983 and became a third party contact/ally of the tobacco industry in its efforts to limit state and federal taxes on cigarettes. In 1989 the PR group Keene, Shirley & Associates, working on behalf of R.J. Reynolds, identified the NTLC as a group whose ideology would lend itself to supporting "smokers' rights"



The American Civil Rights Union (ACRU) is an American legal organization founded by former Reagan Administration official Robert B. Carleson in 1998 as a conservative counter to the American Civil Liberties Union.



The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a free market think tank primarily funded by private foundations established by wealthy conservative business families and billionaires, including Charles and David Koch.
The Heartland Institute is a complete joke. Funded by big oil to discredit climate change. They also deny second-hand smoke health hazards.

The guy worked for multiple organizations that were in the pocket of big tobacco.

He really, really cared about the average citizen.

Trump is going to jail soon after leaving office as he will be tried for everything Cohen was regarding campaign funding violations. This admittance by AMI only solidifies the prosecutions case.

Like John Edwards who got acquitted, unlike Edwards Trump used millions of his own money to supplement his campaign!

Due in the judges hands by 3pm EST Friday.
Mueller ordered to turnover all documents involving initial FBI-Flynn interview.

This is getting interesting.

First The Dems told us they were going to get Trump on treason "collusion"... that didn't work!
I told you SO!

Now they're saying they're going to get Trump for having his lawyer pay a whore hush money!
That's not going to work either...

I don't see why this is "breaking" news. If the money didn't come from the campaign finances then why does it matter? They would have to prove that he wouldn't have paid this money if he wasn't running for president. I am guessing Trump has done this in other cases before running for president as well.

He is just going to state he was protecting the Trump brand and it had nothing to do with the election. How would they prove this was only done because he was running for president?
