As Joe Biden chooses his transition team in the wake of what President Donald Trump has called a “rigged election,” a disturbing trend is beginning to emerge.
A frighteningly large number of Biden’s transition team members are staff members of or have links to Soros-funded organizations, according to readily available public records cited in a bombshell new report from the Washington Free Beacon.
Among those with ties to Soros who are said to be working with Biden is Sarah Cross, an advocacy director at Soros’ Open Society Foundations who was just asked to join the team working on Biden’s State Department transition, according to the Free Beacon.
The outlet also pointed in its Wednesday report to Michael Pan, an Open Society executive special adviser who is reportedly working with the Biden camp on transitioning the United States Mission to the United Nations. And although Diane Thompson is listed on the transition team site as “self-employed,” she is actually a Leadership in Government Fellow with Open Society, the Free Beacon revealed.
Direct and indirect ties
Others on Biden’s transition team may not have worked directly for Soros, but had prominent positions in Soros-funded organizations.
Sharon Burke and Viv Graubard, for instance, are transition team members from the New America think tank, which got $1 million from Open Society last year, according to the Free Beacon. If that’s not enough of a connection, Soros’ son sits on the New America board emeriti, the outlet noted Wednesday.
In addition, John Podesta’s Center for American Progress, which also got $1 million from various Soros-funded organizations, has six of its members in various areas of Biden’s transition team. The Free Beacon also alleged that three people from the Center for Strategic and International Studies and two from the Roosevelt Institute are also on the Biden team.
Both groups reportedly got hundreds of thousands of dollars from Soros organizations.
Soros wields his influence – and his fortune
It’s not surprising that members of Soros’ foundation would end up on Biden’s transition team, given that he spent $70 million to get Democrats including Biden elected. In 2016, Soros “only” spent $22 million on the election, the Free Beacon noted.
Clearly, the 90-year-old has gotten his hooks deeply into American elections, and he now appears to be influencing the next president of the United States.
Soros has advocated a number of socialist policies, as well as open borders and voting techniques that could lead to massive fraud — and he’s long used his destructive influence (and his multi-billion-dollar fortune) to get his way. For now, it seems Biden is going right along with him.
If President Trump doesn’t win his legal battle to overturn the results of the 2020 election, we could be heading into a dangerous future — one from which we might not ever be able to return.
