Our mission is the aggressive pursuit of governmental transparency in the service of democracy.

Operation 45 is dedicated to ensuring transparency and accountability for the Administration of Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States.

 
 

 

Liberating government documents is what we do.

We Exposed

The FBI’s earliest known use of classified remote installation anti-encryption malware

WE EXPOSED

The inner workings of the CIA’s spying on the Senate’s investigation of CIA torture

WE EXPOSED

FBI efforts to secure federal terrorism charges against animal rights activists who expose horrific conditions on factory farms

WE EXPOSED

the FBI’s anti-communist crusade against Nelson Mandela and the anti-apartheid movement

We EXPOSED

FBI policies to conceal information about electronic surveillance from prosecutors and defendants alike

We exposed

The mechanics and architecture of the FBI, CIA, DOJ, and other agencies' routine and flagrant noncompliance with the Freedom of Information Act.
 


This sort of work takes real money. To date, most of that money has come from our own pockets. However, in order to successfully expose the Trump administration, we need to scale up, and we simply can no longer afford to financially go it alone.
