The New Russian Collusion - Dem senators demand POTUS explain ties to Koch bros
[The Hill] Senate Democrats are demanding that the Trump administration explain its ties to GOP megadonor brothers Charles and David Koch after the brothers' network took credit for some policies passed during President Trump’s first year in office, McClatchy reported.

The letters come after a report was sent to a group of Koch donors called the Seminar Network that took responsibility for roughly a dozen new policies passed by the Trump administration, including the new GOP tax law and the repeal of the Obama-era Clean Power Plan.

"Americans have a right to know if special interests are unduly influencing public policy decisions that have profound implications for public health, the environment, and the economy," the senators write in their letters obtained by McClatchy.

Democratic Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), Edward Markey (Mass.), Catherine Cortez Masto (Nev.), Ron Wyden (Ore.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Tom Udall (N.M.) all signed the letters.

#1 I didn't think the Koch brothers were all that fond of Trump.

#5 JohnQC:
You are correct. They did not spend any money on the Trump campaign, preferring to spend their money on the senate and house races.

To the extent that "Trump's policies" depend on a Republican House and Senate, the Kochs can claim credit.

#6 Really? Going after freedom of association now?

You fascist democrats are the scum of the planet. A plague. A disease and a petulance. You people are all the things of evil incorporated into the biggest racketeering mafia on the planet.

Anarchists dividing the Country over sodomy and bigotry. You, the democrat party Are Culmany.

I AM coming after your power structures.
