Congressmen Seek to Cut Off Millions in Taxpayer Money to Soros Network
At Frontpagemag by Daniel Greenfield --
Under Obama, Soros had a free hand to conduct his usual plots. And he was doing it with taxpayer funds. Now some members of Congress want to put a stop to his slimy ways.
Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily -- an Obama appointee -- demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros' Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.
“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.
Together, the concerns reflect growing conservative pushback against Soros' operations in Europe.
