Organization Hitting Trump With Lawsuits Funded By Group Founded By Hillary Campaign’s John Podesta

Hillary’s campaign people haven’t accepted her 2016 loss and they’ve never really gone away either.

A group which has been targeting Trump with lawsuits is being funded by the Center for American Progress, which was founded by Hillary’s campaign manager John Podesta.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Podesta’s CAP Fuels Dark Money Group Hitting Trump with Lawsuits

A “nonpartisan” dark money group that regularly files litigation against President Donald Trump’s administration is powered by money from the Center for American Progress (CAP), the liberal think tank founded by former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.

The Democracy Forward Foundation, a D.C.-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, was founded in 2017 to “help expose the rampant corruption in the Executive Branch and fight in court on behalf of the people it hurts.”

The group also has a 501(c)4 “social welfare” arm that goes by Democracy Forward. The foundation has filed suit against numerous government agencies, such as the Department of Justice, Department of Treasury, and the Office of Management and Budget, and has aided other entities with similar litigation, including Baltimore’s lawsuit against the Trump administration over immigration policy.

The group, which has maintained a relatively low profile despite its litigation efforts against the administration, dubs itself “nonpartisan” and is referred to as “anti-corruption” by major media outlets.

The group’s leadership, however, is made up of Democratic operatives, including Podesta himself.

Meanwhile, the site ‘Think Progress’ which is funded partially by Podesta’s group, is laying off staff.

The Washington Examiner reported:

ThinkProgress tells employees to look for other work

The leadership at liberal media outlet ThinkProgress has told its staff to look for other jobs, as advertising revenue and online contributions have fallen from the past year.

The Daily Beast reports that, according to a budget document, the site is short $3 million between revenue and expenses for 2019. ThinkProgress operates under the Center for American Progress and is editorially independent, although the nonprofit parent organization has provided some funds to the site.

Advertising revenue is projected to fall $350,000 short of what was budgeted, and online contributions are expected to fall short by nearly $180,000. A number of staff members have also left the site or are about to leave, including Managing Editor Tara Culp-Ressler.

Navin Nayak, the executive director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said that, as with many other news sites, ThinkProgress was negatively affected by algorithm changes on social media sites such as Facebook.

Sounds like it’s time to call George Soros for a cash injection.
