Leftist mega-donor George Soros responded to Republcians calling out his funding of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his politically motivated investigation that led to President Trump’s indictment.
“I don’t know” Bragg, Soros claimed.
George Soros also claimed he did not contribute any money to Bragg or his campaign to become district attorney.
Soros’ response came after many GOP members denounced Bragg as being backed and funded by the billionaire.
“I think some on the right would rather focus on far-fetched conspiracy theories than on the serious charges against the former president,” Soros said.
Soros has contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Color of Change PAC, which endorsed Bragg and funded his candidacy.
Soros has been making large donations to Democratic candidates for many years, most notably left-wing prosecutors who allow cities across America to crumble under exploding crime.
Open Society Foundations poured at least $35 million into anti-police groups in 2021, according to tax forms.
Soros has bankrolled many anti-police groups and initiatives working on efforts to overhaul the criminal justice system in recent years.
The billionaire has also backed dozens of far-left prosecutors, including Kimberly Graham, who received more than $300,000 in backing for her Polk County Attorney Democratic primary election.
Meanwhile, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán slammed Soros for meddling with the Hungarian justice system via his shady donations.
More evidence of Soros’s meddling came earlier this month when we reported on another Soros-funded prosecutor facing an angry backlash from police after declining to charge a potential school shooter.
As The Daily Fetched reported:
Fox News reported that the unnamed suspect shooter in Bell Gardens, California, reportedly posted threats to a school on social media and was later caught with stolen guns, high-capacity magazines, and body armor.
But Bell Gardens police later revealed that George Soros funded L.A District Attorney George Gascon had initially declined to press charges against the suspect.
“On March 21, 2023, the filing District Attorney at Downey Superior Court initially rejected the entire case, stating they needed additional information regarding the criminal threat,” the police said.
The police could not believe that a potential mass shooter could be allowed to escape charges.
Earlier this year, Soros attempted to defend his support for electing radical prosecutors describing the “false choice” between “justice” and public safety.
Soros wrote in The Wall Street Journal:
“We need to acknowledge that black people in the U.S. are five times as likely to be sent to jail as white people. That is an injustice that undermines our democracy.”
“In recent years, reform-minded prosecutors and other law-enforcement officials around the country have been coalescing around an agenda that promises to be more effective and just.”
“This agenda includes prioritizing the resources of the criminal-justice system to protect people against violent crime.”
“It urges that we treat drug addiction as a disease, not a crime. And it seeks to end the criminalization of poverty and mental illness.”
