The Free Beacon reports that the Democratic Party’s premiere PAC will start attacking President Donald Trump over the Wuhan virus in four battleground states. They will be relying on the financial war chest of billionaire oligarch George Soros.
Priorities USA Action plans on spending $6 million this week on ads blasting Trump for his approach to the Wuhan virus pandemic. The ads will be played in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The PAC received a hefty $3 million in funds from Soros’s Democracy PAC on February 21, according to new filing reports. Soros’s massive monetary injection makes up 77 percent of the $3.9 million the PAC reported collected in last month.
Big Democratic donors have dropped big money into battleground states, specifically in the Midwest, for anti-Trump programs with the aim of appealing to the president’s voter base. CNN reported on Monday, March 23, 2020 on Priorities USA’s new ads, which are part of a larger plan by Democrat big wigs and activist groups to pour large amounts of funds into the region..
Priorities USA has revealed it plans to spend north of $150 million against Trump in states like Michigan and Wisconsin. The PAC has raised $27 million since January 2019. Donald Sussman, a billionaire hedge fund manager, is the PAC’s largest donor. Sussman has donated $8 million to the group in this election cycle. As of now, Soros is the group’s second-largest donor at $5 million.
PACRONYM, a super PAC linked to the nonprofit ACRONYM, which was in charge of the flawed Iowa app that gained notoriety during the Iowa caucuses, is carrying out a similar campaign.
PACRONYM announced on March 17, 2020 that it will spend $5 million on digital advertising against Trump’s approach to the Wuhan virus. Tara McGowan, ACRONYM’s founder, said it’s crucial that Democratic groups push anti-Trump narratives while Democratic presidential contenders maintain a positive outlook during the pandemic. Biden, however, criticized Trump on Monday over what he described a “failure of planning and preparation” for the pandemic.
“This is a public health issue and a national security issue, but it’s also a public policy issue and thus a political one,” McGowan said to the Washington Post.
PACRONYM received $250,000 from Soros’s Democracy PAC and $1 million from Sussman late in 2019. Hollywood director Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw pitched in $1 million.
Additionally, leftist activist David Brock’s American Bridge PAC has attacked Trump’s Wuhan virus response. American Bridge has focused its attention on Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
“Our job is to hold Donald Trump accountable, and we have no plans to let up, particularly with a focus on economic issues as we’ve done to date,” Bradley Beychok, the president of American Bridge, stated. “But as this crisis unfolds and the country experiences the consequences of his incompetence, we’re not going to give him a pass for bungling the government’s response to this pandemic.”
American Bridge aims to spend $50 million to “weaken” Trump in battleground states in the Midwest. “We’re now set to leverage our expertise to launch the largest persuasion media effort we’ve ever undertaken with the goal of making Trump a one-term president,” Beychok stated last year. “Donald Trump turned his back on the voters who gave him a lifeline in 2016. We plan to cut it.”
Brock has close connections to the Democracy Alliance, a roundtable group of millionaire and billionaire donors that Soros helped found. According to the group’s internal documents, $275 million in spending is planned for the 2020 cycle.
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
