For the conspiracy lovers out there, the name George Soros will ring a whole lot of bells.
Soros, a Hungarian billionaire with heavy ties to the American liberal elite, has long been portrayed as some sort of boogeyman, playing world leaders like puppets in his own game of globalism. He stands at the end of a great many cockamamy theories online, related to all manner of historical context.
But few have ever found any credible evidence of supposedly nefarious ways….until now.
Harvard Law School professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz told Breitbart News Sunday this weekend that billionaire left-wing financier George Soros told then-President Barack Obama to investigate someone.
Dershowitz would not identify who, precisely, the target of the investigation was, but said that the name would soon emerge in in a lawsuit that had yet to be filed.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
And the Trump impeachment lawyer was sure to make clear what he was insinuating.
The revelation was so startling that this host had to double-check:
Q: But let me just ask you — you said that George Soros asked Barack Obama to have his Justice Department investigate somebody?
Dershowitz: We’re — that’s going to come out in a lawsuit in the near future. Yeah
Q: Wow, well, we look forward to hearing more about that new.
Dershowitz: That’s not unusual. That is not unusual. People whisper to presidents all the time. Presidents whisper to [the] Justice Department all the time. It’s very common. It’s wrong, whoever does it, but it’s common, and we shouldn’t think that it’s unique to any particular president. I have in my possession the actual 302 form [an FBI record of an interview], which documents this issue, and it will, at the right time, come out. But I’m not free to disclose it now because it’s a case that’s not yet been filed.
Of course, this is the ultimate test of Soros’ power and a catch-22 at the same time.
If he liberal billionaire skates, he will be accused of pulling the correct strings in order to exonerate himself. But, should he be caught red-handed, then all of the power bestowed upon him by online conspiracy theorists will maybe never have existed in the first place.
