At a Glance:

Jack Burkman, founder and president of JM Burkman & Associates, LLC (the #1 lobbying firm in DC according to The Hill), is a Washington, DC based political consultant and syndicated radio talk show host. In May, 2016 he announced the first fundraising event for Donald Trump for President, hosted by him and his wife in Arlington, Virginia to coalesce D.C. lobbyists and government contractors. However, the event was abruptly cancelled after Burkman received what he considered a “bullying” letter from attorneys from the for-profit Trump Organization. Burkman quickly went from a would-be supporter, to a leader and organizer of the anti-Trump movement. On July 8, 2016, Burkman hosted a fundraiser for Free the Delegates, in which 500 people attended and where he raised over $500-thousand for the anti-Trump effort, with more events and fundraising planned.

In September, 2016, Burkman offered a $100,000 reward to help solve the murder of Seth Rich, a staffer with the Democratic National Committee. He has been assisting the Rich family to find justice in the July murder of their son, who was shot in the back as he walked home. In late November, Burkman joined Seth’s parents at a news conference in the neighborhood where Seth lived and died to canvass and hand out Rich Billboard Webflyers. And in December, 2016, Burkman upped the reward another $5,000, bringing the total to $130,000, including $25,000 from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, making it the highest reward ever for a homicide. In January, 2017, Burkman announced a new website, and that bus depot billboards will soon go up in the neighborhood to help find the killer or killers. In February, Burkman called on the U.S. Congress to investigate a possible Russian connection to the murder.

Launch of The Profiling Project

Profiling Project LogoOn March 23, 2017, in the neighborhood where Rich lived and was murdered, Burkman announced the launch of The Profiling Project. Funded by him, “The Profiling Project” is an autonomous and independent unit investigating the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. The Profiling Project is housed in separate office space by design. The news conference was held in front of a billboard erected by Burkman as part of his ongoing commitment to Seth’s parents and to the community to investigate what happened to Mr. Rich. The Profiling Project is led by Kevin Doherty and Jennifer Rohrer, Ph.D. The Profiling Project is being staffed by The Student Association for Forensic Psychology (SAFP) at George Washington University. It is a student organization comprised of graduate students pursuing a Master’s in Forensic Psychology. Visit The Profiling Project for more information, photos.

Media Experience

Burkman is host of the nationally syndicated radio show “Behind the Curtain with Jack Burkman,” airing in 185 markets, on Radio America and simulcast on Newsmax TV. Each week, he focuses on news stories that are under the surface or are not being covered at all by the mainstream media. Featuring strong investigative reporting and analysis, Burkman uses his experience to reveal the secrets that K Street tries to hide from the public. The program is also simulcast on Newsmax TV.

Burkman also is a former Fox News conservative political analyst who routinely appears on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, CNBC and others.
