Okay McCain. Time to come clean. What are you and George Soros doing? And where are all those bucks coming from? He refuses to disclose the donor list. The Daily Caller first reported this back in June. With his apparent sinking of the overturn of Obamacare, it’s worth another look. Here goes:
The question we all want to know, is where did it come from? John McCain keeps hiding and refuses to answer that question!
What we do know, thanks to an investigation by The Daily Caller, is that the McCain Institute for International Leadership received a VERY GENEROUS donation from none other than George Soros.
The institute is intended to serve as a “legacy” for McCain. It “is dedicated to advancing human rights, dignity, democracy and freedom”. It is also a tax-exempt non-profit foundation with assets valued at $8.1 million and associated with Arizona State University.
John McCain turned over nearly $9 million in unspent funds from his failed 2008 presidential campaign to a new foundation bearing his name, the McCain Institute for International Leadership.
The DC gives us more:
Critics worry that the institute’s donors and McCain’s personal leadership in the organization’s exclusive “Sedona Forum” bear an uncanny resemblance to the glitzy Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) that annually co-mingled special interests and powerful political players in alleged pay-to-play schemes.
The institute has accepted contributions of as much as $100,000 from billionaire liberal activist-funder George Soros and from Teneo, a for-profit company co-founded by Doug Band, former President Bill Clinton’s “bag man.”
Teneo has long helped enrich Clinton through lucrative speaking and business deals. (Earlier I had posted Huma Abedin, Bill Clinton’s Butt boy Band’s new Emails will take the Clintons down? In the post, it gave a close look at the relationship of Doug Band and Bill Clinton and the Company Teneo.)
And Bloomberg reported in 2016 on a $1 million Saudi Arabian donation to the institute, a contribution the McCain group has refused to explain publicly.
In addition, the institute has taken at least $100,000 from a Moroccan state-run company tied to repeated charges of worker abuse and exploitation. The McCain group has also accepted at least $100,000 from the Pivotal Foundation. It was created by Francis Najafi who owns the Pivotal Group, a private equity and real estate firm.
What exactly is John McCain doing behind closed doors? What is he doing for Soros to get all that financial love?
