Just over two years ago, I mobilized a dedicated team of attorneys and staff to launch our Government Accountability Project.
This project aimed at shedding light on burgeoning corruption in the bureaucracy that controls our government agencies and implements our laws. We are fighting to hold this ever-expanding “Deep State” accountable to the American people.
Thanks to your support, our efforts have been a resounding success.
As part of this effort, we have issued more than fifty-one Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
The law requires government agencies to respond to these lawful requests. Yet, the bureaucracy fights tooth and nail to protect its secrets, often refusing to comply with our requests or the law. So, we have been forced to bring them to account – in court. To that end, we have filed eleven federal lawsuits against five different bureaucratic agencies. We are fighting every day to expose the truth.
Over the course of the last two years, the ACLJ has obtained and reviewed more than 14,000 pages of documents. We have exposed corruption, lawlessness, influence peddling, and deception in our government. We have ensured that numerous Deep State bureaucrats are no longer in positions of power.
We have dug into the Obama Administration’s funding of anti-Israel causes – including an attempt to unseat the government of Israel - exposed major corruption and collusion in key federal agencies, and revealed the “purposeful” deletion of an official State Department briefing video to hide when the Iran nuclear deal negotiations began.
The goal of our Government Accountability Project is clear: ensure the United States Government remains of the People, dedicated to the People, and run for the People. It should not serve the interests of entrenched Washington elites, the ever-expanding bureaucratic Deep State, and corrupting special interests.
The ACLJ will deliver this Quarterly Report to Members of Congress, key congressional committees, and the general public to update and empower those with a voice to make a difference and hold the government accountable.
After a review of the report’s findings, I encourage the appropriate congressional committees to provide oversight, hold hearings, and take whatever corrective action is necessary, including new legislation. To that end, we have included specific recommendations for Congress based on our findings.
I also encourage you, the American people, to remain ever vigilant; your voice makes a huge difference.
Thank you for your continued support. Without you, the virus of deception would remain hidden. With your help, we will continue to expose the truth and defeat the Deep State.
As we aggressively fight to expose the shadow government & protect our security, we urgently need your support. Have your gift DOUBLED today. Have your gift doubled through our Matching Challenge.

The Department of Justice’s Inspector General (IG), the DOJ’s internal watchdog, just released a scathing 568-page report condemning the actions of senior FBI officials during the height of the 2016 election, including their handling of the Clinton Email Investigation. The report rebukes the...
It has long been apparent that the Obama Administration was so intent on brokering a nuclear deal with Iran that it was willing to accept almost any terms to close the deal. Now it has become clear that even the terms that were ultimately agreed to were not honored by the Obama Administration. This...
It’s a shocking investigatory misstep. We’ve just obtained new FOIA documents showing that the Comey-led FBI lost the chain of custody for one of Hillary Clinton’s email servers during its supposed investigation. In September of last year, the ACLJ issued a FOIA request to the FBI seeking, among...
