The day may soon arrive when the Democrats will have wished they had kept their mouths shut about all this alleged interference by the Russians on behalf of Donald Trump in our recent election.
It seems new stories of election meddling and wiretapping are surfacing daily, and they are not favorable to Mr. Obama or his Democrats.
Would you be surprised to learn that perhaps Mr. George Soros could be involved in some election-rigging schemes? He’s more than likely shrewd enough to keep several layers of separation between him and anything truly illegal – he pays the bills, not the penalties for any crimes.
The possibility that Mr. Obama himself was involved in some electioneering of the nefarious sort has grown to the point where Republican senators are requesting that Secretary of State Tillerson commence an inquiry into potential wrongdoing by the Obama administration, only it’s probably not what you are expecting.
This time there is one thing different from the allegations we’ve heard so far. These allegations do not involve nefarious plots by Mr. Obama to impact the recent US election, but rather the elections of other nations.
The letter to Secretary Tillerson from a group of senators calls on “Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to ‘extreme and sometimes violent political activists’ that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.”
In what nations’ elections did Mr. Obama allegedly intervene? “The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.”
Now we get to the point where our “friend” Mr. Soros appears to have been involved. Perennially eager to fund leftist causes, it looks like this might have been an opportunity the billionaire could not resist. In this case, the Obama administration is accused of teaming up with Mr. Soros to tilt the results of foreign elections to the left.
“A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).”
If the State Department did get involved in such a scheme, there should be a paper trail that Mr. Tillerson can order investigators to find. Given that the US Department of State obviously has staffers who are intensely loyal to Mr. Obama, some of these folks might need some encouragement to cooperate, such as being placed under oath and questioned.
When the investigations and hearings are finally concluded regarding election-rigging over the past couple of years, Mr. Obama and his Democrats will likely wish they had never heard of the term let alone brought it up.
