American Bridge Releases Radio Ads on Trump’s Dangerous Ties to Russia

Ads Target Republicans Who Refuse to Support An Independent Investigation

Today, American Bridge 21st Century released radio ads against three vulnerable Republican members of Congress, focusing on Trump’s dangerous ties to Russia.

The 60-second spots will run for the next seven days against Rep. Martha McSally (AZ-02), Rep. John Katko (NY-24), and Rep. Will Hurd (TX-23).

With new revelations in the growing scandal surfacing weekly, the American people deserve the kind of answers that can only come from a truly independent investigation operating free of politics. That’s why Americans overwhelmingly support creating an independent commission to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia. But Republicans in Congress are standing in the way, instead putting their party ahead of the country.

Statement by American Bridge President Jessica Mackler:

“The country overwhelmingly wants an independent commission investigating the growing scandal surrounding Donald Trump’s ties to Russia and we’re going to […]

New Tax Day Ad Blasts Donald Trump for Selling Out American Families

As millions of American families file their taxes ahead of the annual deadline, a new Bridge Project Tax Day digital ad launched today underlines how Donald Trump’s tax reform agenda would force them to pay more next year.

Trump’s scheme would stick it to working families while providing hundreds of billions of dollars to the wealthiest Americans in new tax breaks,  just like Trumpcare, which would leave 26 million Americans without health insurance in order to fund tax breaks for the rich and health insurance executives.

New Bridge Project Digital Ad Highlights Trumpcare Consequences to Kick Off Congressional Recess

To kick off congressional recess, Bridge Project is today launching a new digital ad that will highlight the disastrous Trumpcare consequences that Republicans are trying to inflict on the American public in order to to finance tax cuts for the super wealthy.

As Republicans leave Washington for the congressional recess, they will come face to face with Americans alarmed by what Trumpcare would do to them and demanding answers from their members of Congress.

The ad launch comes as Republicans will face constituents who are deeply alarmed about what Trumpcare would mean for them, and who deserve answers from their members of Congress.

Despite a humiliating defeat in March, Republicans are still trying to rip health coverage away from American families with another version of Trumpcare that could become even more dangerous. Polling continuously shows that Trumpcare is extraordinarily unpopular with the American public, and that the Trumpcare debate […]

Episode Three: Carter Page

Today, Bridge Project is launching the third episode in its new web series that outlines the numerous direct ties between officials in Donald Trump’s inner circle and Russian oligarchs, gangsters, alleged spy-masters, and Vladimir Putin. This week’s episode focuses on Carter Page, Trump’s former foreign policy adviser, who is one of at least 4 former Trump aides under FBI investigation.

This week, a bombshell report revealed that in 2013 Page met with and passed documents to a Russian intelligence officer who our government later charged for working covertly as a spy. While on the Trump campaign, Page traveled to Moscow and secretly met with Russian officials close to Vladimir Putin and then lied about meeting with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in July.

“Carter Page’s deep ties to Russia are a crucial piece of the puzzle as the FBI and Congress investigate whether the Trump campaign has been honest about […]

New Bridge Project Trumpcare Ad Spotlights Trump Breaking His Promises

In advance of the House Trumpcare vote, Bridge Project is releasing a new ​digital ​ad that blasts Donald Trump for violating health care promises he made to the American people on the campaign trail.

This ad, “Was Anything He Said Not a Lie​?​” contrasts the assurances Donald Trump made to voters – that he would deliver better, cheaper health care for “everybody” – with the consensus among independent experts that Trumpcare would take health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans, as well as make health care costs spike for working and middle class families, seniors, and rural Americans.

The ad also highlights that many assessments show Trumpcare would disproportionately harm his own supporters – and shows Trump acknowledging this.

“Trumpcare betrays millions upon millions of vulnerable Americans that Donald Trump pledged he would help. This plan would kick millions off of their coverage – even more so than if Republicans simply repealed […]

Today, Bridge Project is launching a new web series that outlines the numerous direct ties between officials in Donald Trump’s inner circle and Russian oligarchs, gangsters, alleged spy-masters, and Vladimir Putin. For this week’s inaugural episode, Bridge Project focuses on former Trump campaign aide Roger Stone.

As a former Trump campaign official, Roger Stone admitted to being in contact with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the infamous hacker Guccifer 2.0, both who are believed to be connected to the Russian government, while they were engaged in cyber attacks on the U.S. Stone’s contacts are the most explicit connections between Trump’s inner circle and the hackers, and the FBI is currently investigating ‘intercepted communications and financial transactions’ between Stone and Russian officials.

“We’re going to make sure the public is fully briefed on Donald Trump and Roger Stone’s ties to Russia and the national security ramifications. Russia’s potential influence over our president puts us […]

Bridge Project Launches An Interactive Map Of Trump’s Russia Ties

Today Bridge Project is launching, 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. 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 […]

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 […]

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.
