A group of conservative Senators are demanding that Secretary of State investigate whether or not billionaire liberal George Soros is using United States tax dollars to fund overseas groups. This has come after a long deliberation and is something that needs to be done sooner rather than later. Soros has been able to get away with a lot due to his wealth and ties with the liberal elites.
A letter has been sent that demands a probe into how money is being used to fund efforts such as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and how it ties into liberal groups abroad.
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, has come out and said that some foreign countries have even been claiming United States activity in their countries. He explained in a statement: “This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the US Government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles. … This sort of political favoritism from our missions around the world is unacceptable.”
It was signed also by Senators James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Thom Tillis, R-N.C.; David Perdue, R-Ga.; Ted Cruz, R-Texas; and Bill Cassidy, R-La.
These Republicans have been trying to get something like this done for a long time. Now that we have President Donald Trump in office that is much easier to do. George Soros has been in hot water before because of his ties to outside liberal groups. He throws money at any liberal effort he can find.
Part of the letter explained what they are trying to do.
“We respectfully ask that you use your authority to investigate all funds associated with promoting democracy and governance and review the programs, accounts, and multiplicity of U.S. entities involved in such activities,” the letter said.
George Soros has been getting away with whatever he wants for far too long. There is no excuse for what he is doing and it needs to stop. He is starting to be able to control other countries with his money. That means that it has gone too far.
