Foreign Influence Explorer

Until 2014, we manually entered data from the PDFs disclosed by the Department of Justice. That's how you can see itemized disbursements, lists of contacts, individual contributions, and other breakdowns of the information contained in those documents. We no longer manually pull that information, but we keep asking the Department of Justice to improve their data production standards so that you'll have access to that information! Until that time, we're providing this information for archival purposes only. Please check our "Real-Time Disclosures" and "Proposed Arms Sales" for up-to-date information.

Foreign Influence Explorer documents some of the ways foreign entities influence policy and opinions in the United States.The foreign influence data housed here comes from documents collected by the Department of Justice as required by the Foreign Agents Registration Act and press releases from The Defense Security Cooperation Agency.
