David Norman Bossie is an American political activist. Since 2000, he has been president and chairman of the conservative advocacy group Citizens United and in 2016,
Bossie was the deputy campaign manager to the Donald Trump presidential campaign in 2016 and currently serves as advisor for the upcoming election in 2020.
A volunteer firefighter in his youth, Dave took up politics. First Bossie was the youth director of Sen. Bob Dole’s 1988 presidential campaign.
He was a Congressional investigator during the Clinton Administration as a house oversight committee member.
After the Republicans won control of the United States House of Representatives in the 1994 elections, Dan Burton (R-IN) became chairman of the House Committee on Government Reform and new Oversight. In 1997, he hired Bossie as chief investigator to look into possible campaign finance abuses by U.S. President Bill Clinton.
By May 1998, Burton came under intense partisan pressure; even fellow Republicans complained that committee staff had published redacted tapes and transcripts of former United States Associate Attorney General Webster Hubbell’s prison telephone calls omitting some exculpatory passages. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich pressed Burton to seek Bossie’s resignation. Shortly thereafter, Burton accepted Bossie’s resignation. During his tenure at Citizens United, which he had joined as a researcher after Bill Clinton was elected in 1992, the organization focused increasingly on producing film documentaries through its Citizens United Productions division. Their films have included:
Border War: The Battle Over Illegal Immigration
Rediscovering God in America, hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich
Hillary: The Movie
Citizens United hoped to begin distribution of the feature film Hillary: The Movie in January or February 2008. The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 made that an unlawful electioneering communication. They sued, unsuccessfully, for an injunction to prohibit the Federal Election Commission from enforcement of those provisions of BCRA on First Amendment grounds.
In a 2010 landmark decision, the Supreme Court decided Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission for Citizens United. For-profit corporations and not-for-profit corporations may now advertise and broadcast messages of a political nature without limits on how much they can spend and with few limits on the timing and nature of the messages.
In September 2016, presidential candidate Donald Trump hired Bossie to be his new deputy campaign manager.
He has penned several books:
He has appeared in almost every news publication and news station in America.
