Disclosure: For the People

Rep. Speier (D-CA), also a member of the House Intelligence Committee, expresses concern about the lax disclosure laws for foreign nationals donating money to 501(c)(4) organizations with explicitly political missions, as Russian nationals have done with the National Rifle Association (NRA). When asked whether Congress should limit foreign contributions to nonprofits and subject them to more rigorous disclosure requirements, Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn agrees and points to existing restrictions on foreign nationals contributing directly to campaigns.
