A watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington which is supposedly nonpartisan has received over a million dollars in donations from the left wing billionaire George Soros. Furthermore, members of the group appear on TV and don’t get called out for their politics. So typical.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Soros Gave $1.35M to ‘Nonpartisan’ Watchdog Inundating Trump with Lawsuits
Liberal billionaire George Soros provided $1.35 million to a “nonpartisan” government watchdog organization last year that is hitting the Trump administration with a steady flow of complaints and lawsuits in an attempt to “damage” his presidency, according to tax filings provided to the Washington Free Beacon.
Separate state filings also reveal that the “nonpartisan” watchdog shares employees with the liberal Media Matters for America, an organization that was founded by Democratic operative and Clinton loyalist David Brock. Confidential documents handed out by Brock to big money donors in early 2017 and obtained by the Free Beacon previously shed light on how Brock planned to attack Trump over the course of his presidency using his constellation of organizations.
Soros gave $1.35 million to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit that does not reveal its donors. The group has been involved with a number of high-profile lawsuits and complaints against Trump and other Republicans. Its top members regularly appear on news programs attacking the administration and members of the GOP but are rarely identified as having a left-wing mission by the outlets and on-air personalities.
Conservative groups are never given a pass like this. They’re typically described by talking heads in media as far right.
