David Cay Johnston

Earlier this month, the New York Times published a bombshell investigation into Donald Trump’s finances and the many tax schemes he used to enhance his wealth. David Cay Johnston has been reporting on Donald Trump since the 1990s and has done exceptional reporting on the President’s taxes himself …  including a release of Trump’s 2005 tax return. He says the New York Times has created a roadmap on how to investigate the President … if the Democrats win the House in November.

Kimberly Reed

Kimberly Reed’s newest film, “Dark Money”, is a powerful expose of the influence of anonymous donors in political campaigns.  She says growing up in Montana gave her a front row seat to the corrupting influence of money in politics and the perfect setting to tell that story.
