George Soros Doubles Down on Efforts to Take Out Trump
Records reveal liberal billionaire's attempts to get a Democrat in the White House
Far-left billionaire George Soros has massively ramped up his efforts to remove President Donald Trump from the White House in the coming election, according to a new report.
Soros is pumping unprecedented amounts of campaign cash into the Democrats' anti-Trump push this year, financial records show.
According to The Washington Free Beacon, globalist Soros is plowing money into the left-wing Democracy PAC like never before.
The super PAC is reportedly serving as the connecting point for other liberal political action committees and campaigns that are in turn supported by the Democracy PAC.
The Democracy PAC has received more than $40 million either directly from Soros or from the Fund for Policy Reform, a not-for-profit group that operates under the umbrella of the Soros-funded Open Society Foundation network, a Federal Elections Commission report shows.
The Beacon stated that Soros has poured money “into the coffers of the Democracy PAC, a super PAC that passes money to other liberal PACs working to defeat Trump and congressional Republicans.”
According to public records, the PAC has received $40 million, double the $20 million it received in 2016 throughout the presidential election.
An operative told the Washington Free Beacon:
While Democrats across the country sanctimoniously rail against the influence of dark money in politics, their party’s largest donors are bankrolling a massive web of liberal organizations to get them elected.
George Soros’s unprecedented spending further highlights just how dependent Democrats are on contributions from billionaires, despite their hypocritical rhetoric.
Fund for Policy Reform, a nonprofit in Soros’s Open Society Foundations network that is reported to have in the bank $750 million on its latest tax forms, also gave $35 million.
In doing so, Soros’s name is kept from appearing amongst those that give millions to political committees.
Democracy PAC, known for making large donations to far-left candidates, has given more than $25 million to other PACs, including a $7 million to the Senate Majority PAC, which has close ties to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
The Beacon also noted:
Many of the groups that receive money from Soros are top spenders backing massive anti-Trump campaigns.
Priorities USA is the biggest outside spender this cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, having spent more than $28 million.
Its efforts include anti-Trump advertisements focused on criticizing the president’s response to the coronavirus pandemic in the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
In addition to his overwhelming PAC donations, Soros has also given $2 million to committees directly without going through his PACs.
Those donations include $500,000 to the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund, a committee to raise funds between the Democratic National Committee, all 50 state Democratic parties, and the D.C. Democratic committee.
Soros has also given thousands to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) victory fund, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Similar to Soros, former presidential hopeful Tom Steyer has also poured into the 2020 election and is ranked among the highest of donors.
