TEMPORARY OVERSIGHT CHAIR REP. MALONEY NEEDS TO RETURN TRUMP'S MONEY!
- Rep. Carolyn Maloney
- United States of America
From 1993 to 2009 Rep Carolyn Maloney received contributions from Donald J Trump. Over the 20 year period Carolyn Maloney received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Donald Trump while he was a wealthy real estate developer in New York City. In recent years, other prominent New York Democrats, such as Senator Kirsten Gillibrand have publicly donated their tainted Trump contributions to charity, but Rep. Maloney has not.
If Carolyn Maloney wants to lead the Congressional impeachment investigation against Donald Trump, then she should follow the lead of almost every other Democrat who took campaign contributions from Trump - give it back!
Trump once boasted that as a New York landlord, “I give to everybody,” he said at the first GOP primary debate in August 2015. “When they call, I give. And do you know what? When I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them, they are there for me.”
As the temporary Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform - and someone who's running to be appointed full-time to that position - Carolyn Maloney is now in a unique position to drive the impeachment process that the majority of Americans support.
But she's now one of the only New York Democrats who has not indicated that she would return the thousands of dollars in campaign contributions that she got from Trump. While it’s impossible to do undo whatever those contributions bought, it’s still possible to return them if she’s going to prosecute impeachment. She can't have it both ways.
Add your name to our petition calling on Maloney to immediately return the tainted Trump money.
