CREW uses aggressive legal action, in-depth research, and bold communications to reduce the influence of money in politics and help foster a government that is ethical and accountable. We highlight abuses, change behavior, and lay the groundwork for new policies and approaches that encourage public officials to work for the benefit of the people, not powerful interests.
When the courts opened at 9 am this morning, a legal dream team officially filed Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington v. Donald J. Trump to stop the President from violating the Constitution by illegally receiving payments from foreign governments.
If we want government of the people, by the people, and for the people to continue, it is time for Congress, enforcement agencies, and most importantly the American people to demand an end to the violations and a return to an ethical and lawful government.
CREW is committed to holding government officials, including President Trump, to account when they abuse their power and fail to work in the public interest. Because President Trump refused to divest his business empire, we are documenting every interaction these businesses have with the government and those trying to influence it.
CREW's lawyers, researchers, and communicators don't just highlight the negative influence of money in politics; we take action to ensure accountability and change our system for the better.LEARN MORE
