I am delighted to welcome everyone this evening to the French Residence as we...celebrate the Congressional French Caucus and the Ripon Society and Franklin Center’s Capital to Capital Exchange."
Seems like a big day for your organization, meeting with all those foreign leaders in Paris - why the radio silence??
Asking because you are on the board of @RiponSociety, a dark money 501(c)(4) funding congressional members travel to Paris this weekend.
But also registered foreign agent.
You are a registered foreign agent *AND* on the advisory board of Ripon Society. Is it legal for your group to fund travel for congress members?
💰Henry Bonilla, R-TX
💰Mike Ferguson, R-NJ
💰Tom Reynolds, R-NY
💰Mike Castle, R-DE
💰Bob Livingston, R-LA
💰Don Nickles, R-OK
Anyway - looks like Kevin Yoder (R-KS) is in Paris, but he isn't on Ripon Society Advisory Board.
Need to add that Giuliani was in Normandy on July 4th this year, at the same time the 8 senators where in Moscow.
What's up Jim McCrery, R-LA? How's that Turkey lobbying going these days?
You over in Paris rn?
The reception speech opened:
"Dear Senator and Mrs. Boozman,
Congressman and Mrs. Latta,
Members of Congress"
💰Mike Castle - Saudi Arabia
💰Bob Livingston - Ukraine
💰Don Nickles - Korea
💰Jim McCrery - Turkey
1. Congress required to file w/ House clerk w/in 15 days of travel
2. Reed had to know Tiberi was a lobbyist, he resigned senate to do so - he lied on form.
