Billionaire oligarch George Soros all but endorsed Elizabeth Warren for President when speaking to the New York Times on Friday, explaining that he viewed the Massachusetts senator as the “most qualified” candidate for President.
Soros wasn’t explicit in giving Warren his full endorsement- likely hoping to preserve personal political access to other Democratic candidates should they win the nomination- but made it clear he was at least tacitly in her camp.
The Hungarian-born financier is one of the wealthiest people in the United States. He’s poured billions of dollars into promoting a globalist agenda, ranging from propping up progressive front groups to outright funding illegal immigration.
Soros has a net worth of almost ten billion dollars, and has stashed countless billions more in his financial investment companies and liberal pressure group, the Open Society Foundations. He’d likely be liable to pay more in taxes under Elizabeth Warren’s proposed wealth tax policy plan.
However, Soros’ endorsement may speak to the possibility that Warren wouldn’t actually enact a wealth act. If the megabillionaire were to use his vast personal fortune to support her candidacy, he’d likely possess great personal leverage over President Warren.
Soros had previously bemoaned what he perceived as his lack of influence within the Obama administration, stating that he would’ve preferred a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Soros also believes that Warren is the “clear cut person to beat” within the current structure of the Democratic Primary. He slammed President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria, claiming that bringing home American troops from an endless war was damaging to the United States’ influence throughout the world.
As Warren is endorsed by the infamous oligarch, it’s worth questioning if she’s seeking the support of everyday, working-class American people or the widely detested political elite.
AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election
Durham has more power now.
A federal prosecutor tasked with investigating 2016 FBI misconduct targeting President Donald Trump’s campaign was designated as a Special Counsel of the Department of Justice weeks before the 2020 election
“On May 13, 2019, I directed United States Attorney John Durham to conduct a preliminary review into certain matters related to the 2016 presidential election campaigns, and Mr. Durham’s review subsequently developed into a criminal investigation, which remains ongoing. Following consultation with Mr. Durham, I have determined that, in light of the extraordinary circumstances relating to these matters, the public interest warrants Mr. Durham continuing this investigation pursuant to the powers and independence afforded by the Special Counsel regulations,” Attorney General Barr revealed in a statement released Tuesday. The order appointing Durham a Special Counsel is dated October 19th, 2020.
“The Special Counsel is authorized to investigate whether any federal official, employee, or any other person or entity violated the law in connection with the intelligence, counterintelligence, or law enforcement activities directed at the 2016 presidential campaigns, individuals associated with those campaigns, and individuals associated with the administration of President Donald J. Trump, including but not limited to Crossfire Hurricane and the investigation of Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III,” Barr revealed. “If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from his investigation of these matters.”
Appointment as a Special Counsel grants John Durham powers broadly similar to those possessed by Robert Mueller during his Russian interference conspiracy probe. The powers potentially make Durham more difficult to fire in a potential Joe Biden presidential administration, and shield him from superior influence of the Department of Justice.
Reports earlier this month had indicated Durham didn’t intend to make any further indictments as a result of his investigation into FBI political misconduct, with some speculating the premise of a Biden administration would deter the longtime federal prosecutor from charging any Democrats. His appointment as a Special Counsel may suggest he’s more inclined to charge those involved in FBI misconduct.
Durham has already secured one guilty plea, from an FBI lawyer who admitted to altering email communications from the CIA confirming that then-Trump campaign advisor Carter Page was a source for the intelligence agency.
Barr revealed he expects Durham to issue a report on the findings obtained from his investigation.
