President Barack Obama’s former attorneys have kickstarted a non-profit organization in an effort to combat Donald Trump’s impending legislations.
Known as “United to Protect Democracy,” a name derived from a quotation in President Obama’s farewell address, the group is bent on countering the Trump presidency by motioning for judicial action at the slightest availability.
Discovery of evidence, leaks to the media and sufficiently-presented lawsuits against Trump reveal a business plan built around coercing Congress into eventual investigations. UPD has already staffed five employees with the anticipation of its employee base quickly rising.

The non-profit has also acquired $1.5 million in usable funds in its short existence. Co-founder and former White House aide Ian Bassin said the purpose of his organization is to oversee the expected demise of U.S. democracy under President Trump. Bassin anticipates a “decline over a period of years,” a scenario made possible “through a series of much smaller steps.”
With 50 Freedom of Information Act requests already on file, UPD’s intentions were met with opposition from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who said early Thursday, “This administration has raised the level of ethics training and oversight to a new level compared to the practices of the previous administration.”
Wholeheartedly invested in UPD’s purpose, Bassin said, “We need an organization that is specifically and holistically focused on that worst-case scenario.”
