The Young Turks team is gearing up for the Trump administration.

The progressive online news program announced Wednesday that it has raised more than $500,000 to help fund four new investigative journalist teams. Their end goal is to raise $2 million.

With the funding, The Young Turks were able to bring on Sirius XM’s Nomiki Konst as an investigative reporter and the New York Daily News‘ Shaun King as a news correspondent.
