It feels like it’s been a lifetime since Trump descended down that gaudy faux-gilded escalator to announce his candidacy for the highest office in the US— & to call Mexicans rapists. Since then, my team and I have been working to expose this man for the fraud he is, and we’ve had major success. Now, we need your help to dig deeper and find new angles. Help fund our podcast so we can remain an independent voice for The Resistance & push back even harder against Trump here: https://igg.me/p/2244308/twtr/17522796
For nearly two years, Scott Dworkin and the team at the Democratic Coalition have worked to lead the Resistance, providing key information and analysis that’s stood in the way of Donald Trump and his destructive agenda at every step. From exposing links between Trump and Russia to diving deep into campaign finance reports to find connections no one’s noticed, we’ve led the charge to expose Trump and his comrades for the con artists they really are.
To begin Scott will be hosting the podcast twice a week with episodes lasting 20–30 minutes. Each discussion will feature an insightful guest, most likely a celebrity, elected official or an activist. We’ll go over key topics including Trump-Russia connections, reactions to the latest political events, Democratic elections to keep an eye on in 2018, and the state of The Resistance. You will also hear more about the inner workings of how we investigate & we will keep you informed on the progress of each investigation into Trump, his cronies and the Republican Party in real time.
The money will be spent on equipment for the podcast (microphones, a dedicated computer for the podcast, a mixer, audio processor) & soundproofing the new studio. We also will hire a research assistant & a production assistant to help with the recordings.
Stretch Goal #1: If we make it to $100,000 we are then able to hire 3 research assistants to help support the show
Stretch Goal #2: If we make it to $200,000 we are then able to hire 6 research assistants to support the show.
