Obama complained loudly and often about Russia’s meddling in America. Was Obama an even BIGGER threat to foreign democracies than Putin?
We knew Obama leaned hard-left when the Junior Senator first beat Hillary in the Primaries.
But did we really believe such a hard-left ideologue could POSSIBLY resist using America’s wealth and influence other countries to join his cause?
Don’t forget the man launched his Presidential race in the living room of a domestic terrorist!
Congress is calling on Tillerson to investigate whether Obama was using American money to support Leftist Activist groups supported by George Soros.
This is particularly relevant — even Rachel Maddow could understand this principle. She’s the one digging frantically that Trump is in the pocket of Putin. Becuase if she could prove that he was, he might be putting the interests of Russia above American interests.
But that accusation cuts both ways, doens’t it Rachel? If George Soros — the Democrat’s single BIGGEST financial benefactor — is calling the shots for US foreign policy as a quid-pro-quo for dumping big money into Democrat coffers, that’s corruption.
And that is EXACTLY what some foreign diplomats have been alleging about Obama’s administration:
A group of leading senators is calling on newly installed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to “extreme and sometimes violent political activists” that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.
The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.
A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).
The senators are asking Tillerson to launch a full-scale investigation into these funding efforts in order to determine how exactly the Obama administration sought to promote left-leaning causes and political parties across the globe.
The latest disclosures of this activity mirror efforts by the Obama administration to send taxpayer funds to Israeli organizations that opposed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the country’s last election.
Political leaders from a range of nations spent months informing the lawmakers about these activities.
“Over the past few months, elected officials and political leaders of foreign nations have been coming to me with disappointing news and reports of U.S. activity in their respective countries,” Lee said in a statement. “This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the U.S. government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles.”
“This sort of political favoritism from our missions around the world is unacceptable and endangers our bilateral relationships,” he said.
If this blows up in his face, Obama might wish he’d ridden quietly off into the sunset, instead of installing himself as Quarterback of The Resistance.
And … if he were to drag the Democrats down with him?
They might wish the same thing.
Suddenly Hungary isn’t the ONLY place that’s viewing Soros with suspicion.
