Bridge Project Launches TrumpConnections.ru: An Interactive Map Of Trump’s Russia Ties

Today Bridge Project is launching Trumpconnections.ru, a new digital project that explains in detail the myriad of connections between Donald Trump and associates from his Administration, campaign, and business ventures to Russian oligarchs, gangsters, alleged spy-masters, and Vladimir Putin.

The steady drip of Trump-Russia developments makes it hard to keep track of all the players in the scandal and how they interact. Trumpconnections.ru outlines the complex web of Trump and Putin-connected individuals and entities as an interactive map that includes background information on every party involved — from state-owned Russian oil company Gazprom (former Trump adviser Carter Page has it on his resume) to, yes, the National Rifle Association.

To date the Administration has refused to level with the American public about what Trump knew, when, and his potential ties to the Russia hacking scandal that tilted last year’s election in his favor. The stonewalling has the public rightfully […]

Bridge Project Launches Ads Targeting 27 GOP Members of Congress

Today, American Bridge 21st Century launched it’s first congressional ad campaign of the cycle, targeting 27 members of Congress on their failure to support an independent investigation led by a special prosecutor into Trump’s ties to Russia.

The digital ads will run on social media and news websites in the targeted districts in 17 states, and lead voters to a website where they can easily contact their member of Congress and urge them to support an honest look at the facts surrounding Trump’s mysterious and dangerous ties to Russia.

Statement by American Bridge President Jessica Mackler:

“Donald Trump’s close ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin are putting our national security at risk, and it is now clear his campaign team was in contact with the Russians throughout last year’s campaign. But the Republican Congress is silent, ignoring demands from their constituents for a truly independent investigation. The American people deserve better, and this […]

CBO Score Confirmed: No Woman Is Safe Under TrumpCare

Following the release of CBO’s report, American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement:

“No woman is safe under Trumpcare. The Republican plan to rip away health care options would leave millions of women without a place to turn for care.”

According to the CBO Report, de-funding Planned Parenthood would cause 15 percent of underserved and low-income women to lose access to care.

See excerpts from American Bridge’s report on women’s health care:

Planned Parenthood offers more contraceptive options: Only half of community health centers that receive Title X funding provide IUDs or implants on-site. Planned Parenthood offers more contraceptive options for women, making it easier for women to find long-acting contraceptives.

Planned Parenthood serves more contraceptive patients: Planned Parenthood clinics serve over twice the amount of contraceptive clients than federally-qualified health clinics.

Planned Parenthood clinics have shorter wait times: When compared […]

VIDEO: American Bridge Releases GOP Fact Check on Women’s Health, “Hands Off Our Care”

Today, Bridge Project unveiled a new campaign to push back against Republican attacks on women’s health care – which can be found in their new ACA repeal bill. While Republicans claim that community health clinics can take the place of Planned Parenthood services, the facts say otherwise.

The campaign features a web video fact check of Republicans’ assertion that community health clinics could replace Planned Parenthood.

“For decades, women have trusted Planned Parenthood to help keep them healthy. The GOP seems hell-bent on getting rid of what is sometimes the only health care option for women,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “Ripping away health care options for women will have detrimental effects in communities all over the country. Women and families are already struggling to make ends meet and Republicans’ siege on health care will only make it harder […]

Bridge Project Launches Second Wave of Ads Against Heller and Flake

Today, American Bridge 21st Century unveiled new digital ads targeting Senators Dean Heller and Jeff Flake for failing to back an independent investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.

The ads will run on YouTube and other video platforms as pre-roll, short digital advertisements that play before a video. The campaign will last two weeks in Nevada and Arizona and urge voters to contact their Senators and sign a petition urging Heller and Flake to support an independent investigation to find out just how entangled Trump is with Russia.

Statement from American Bridge President Jessica Mackler:

“As if Donald Trump’s close ties with Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin weren’t troubling enough, it’s now clear that his administration attempted to cover up communications between Trump’s associates and the Russians. While Dean Heller and Jeff Flake ignore the questions surrounding Trump’s ties to Russia, Donald Trump, himself, continues to put America’s national security […]

Bridge Project Released Report on Women’s Health Care: “Hands Off Our Care”

Despite pleas from their constituents, Republicans in Congress are set on taking away health care options. They particularly are looking for any excuse to take funding away from Planned Parenthood, which provides critical preventative care that helps keep millions of women, many of whom are dependent on safety-net providers, healthy.

Today, Bridge Project released a new report, “Hands Off Our Care,” which explains why the Republican solution to the problem of their own making – that community health centers can take over Planned Parenthood services – is simply wrong.

“Not only is the GOP endangering the lives of Americans with their promise to take funding from women’s health clinics, but their excuse is based on nothing but smoke and mirrors,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “If Republicans had their way, women around the country would not only lose access to trusted clinics and doctors, but in some […]

As Trump refuses to speak out about Russia’s aggression, the questions keep piling up. With the stakes this high, Dean Heller and Jeff Flake need to support an independent investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia, and get the American people the answers they deserve.”

Bridge Project Digital Ad — CPAC 2017: The Party of Hypocrites

Ahead of the Conservative Political Action Conference, Bridge Project today released a new digital ad, “CPAC 2017: Party Hypocrites,” showcasing Republicans who have refused to hold the Trump administration to the same standards they had for the Obama administration.

“Despite the disastrous and scandal-plagued first month of Donald Trump’s presidency, Republicans have refused to call out the new president for his repeated lies, unconstitutional policies, and extreme executive action. Republicans are standing by silently, while Donald Trump’s administration undermines core American values and fails to run the country efficiently,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler.
