"American Bridge will cement itself as the
standard-bearer of opposition research, build on its
role as a progressive clearinghouse for information
that drives the narrative on Republican
officeholders and candidates, and be at the
epicenter of Democrats’ work to regain
power–starting in 2017 and building to 2020."
Here’s what success will look like:
Trump will be defeated either through
impeachment or at the ballot box in 2020.
The balance of power will shift back to the
Democrats. We will measurably impact US Senate,
gubernatorial, and state legislative races.
We will free ourselves from solely relying in
the press. Our robust digital program will reach
voters directly online.
This is typical for American Bridge,
which was formed in 2010 and practically invented
the “tracker” position – a paid position for
left-leaning activists to record every Republican
officeholder and candidate in every public forum

parts of government, expose improper influence from
powerful interests, and ensure accountability when
the administration and others shirk ethical
standards, rules, and laws.” Shareblue
will “take back social media for Democrats”. Their
purpose is to “legitimize Donald Trump’s presidency
by emboldening the opposition”.
It’s the mission of CREW that is most concerning.
According to the playbook, here’s what success will
-Trump will be afflicted by a steady flow of
damaging information, new revelations, and an
inability to avoid conflicts issues.
-The Trump Administration will be forced to defend
illegal conduct in court.
-Powerful industries and interest groups will see
their influence wane.
-Dark money will be a political liability in key
It is ironic that they point to dark money as a

of those very campaigns that are fueling the war
against conservatives and others in America.
