Another layer has just been added to the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
According to a new report from Just the News, newly-released court documents reveal that George Soros, the billionaire well-known for his support of far-left politics, was involved in perpetuating the hoax.
And, the report also brings to light new details about Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) involvement, as head of the U.S. Senate Armed Services.
This information comes from court documents from the lawsuit that was filed by Alfa Bank, the Russian bank that the hoaxers claimed was the intermediary between former President Donald Trump and Russia.
What the court documents show is that Soros essentially hired Dan Jones, a former FBI analyst, and his non-profit The Democracy Integrity Project (TDIP) to produce a report in furtherance of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.
Regarding TDIP, Just the News reports:
The group was designed in part to pick up the work started under the Clinton campaign by Fusion GPS and former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele seeking to link Trump to Russia collusion.
Fusion and Steele, of course, are, respectively, the firm and the spy who produced the infamous Steele dossier.
According to Just the News, tax records show that Soros provided funding for TDIP. And, although a Soros spokesman claimed that he initially wasn’t aware of this link between TDIP and Fusion GPS/Steele, Soros wanted the group to investigate foreign interference in American elections.
Just the News continues:
A Soros spokesman told The Hill in 2019 that the billionaire philanthropist wrote a sizable check from his personal funds in fall 2017 to TDIP in hopes it would continue “investigation and research into foreign interference in American elections and European elections.” That spokesman said Soros later learned that Fusion and Steele, who had previously worked for the Clinton campaign, had done some work for TDIP.
What court documents also show is that, in 2017, the McCain-led U.S. Senate Armed Services engaged Jones and the TDIP to produce a report on the Russian collusion hoax. Jones spent a year and a half on that report, which ended up being some 600 pages long, but, it was never released to the public.
One question that we do not have an answer to is what McCain and the other members of the U.S. Senate Armed Services committee knew about Jones and the TDIP. While it is unclear whether they knew it was funded by Soros, they surely must have known that it was aligned with the Democratic Party.
But there you have it: Soros can now officially be added to the list of conspirators.
