Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan were assumed to be fighting Donald Trump on behalf of the donor class.
But just who were the donors they were fighting on behalf of?
A new report reveals jaw dropping details of who was funding anti-Trump Republicans.
The big money donor class has always fought for open borders and global trade deals.
They demand cheap labor and government managed trade deals to boost their profits by shipping jobs overseas and driving down the wages of American workers.
Donald Trump campaigned on securing the border and pulling out of global trade agreements like the TPP and NAFTA.
For his beliefs, he faced fierce resistance from establishment Republicans.
But who was funding their effort?
None other than employees of a hedge fund started by left-win billionaire George Soros himself.
“But more importantly, perhaps, than the unsurprising giant lump sums of cash funneled into Democratic Party and Clinton coffers is the revelation thanks to the Center for Responsive Politics that employees of the Soros firm—now run by his son Robert Soros—pumped tens of thousands of dollars into the campaigns of top anti-Trump Republicans over the course of 2016.
In total, executives with the Soros-founded company pushed $36,800 into the coffers of these GOP candidates just this past cycle. That does not include Super PACs or campaign committees, which saw tens of thousands of dollars more. While these numbers for Republicans pale in comparison to the millions upon millions poured into Democratic groups, causes, and candidates, it is significant that Soros executives are making a play inside the GOP. Perhaps even more significant is the type of Republican they aim to prop up: pro-amnesty, pro-open borders on trade, and generally speaking anti-Trump. A pattern emerges when looking at the policies of the Republicans that these Soros Fund Management executives support financially.
The biggest recipient of Soros-connected cash in the GOP was none other than House Speaker Paul Ryan, who repeatedly attempted to undermine Trump over the course of the election. According to the records available online, the Soros firm’s workers gave $10,800 to Ryan. Included in that are two separate May 2, 2016, donations from David Rogers, a then-employee of Soros Fund Management who lives in New York City. Rogers left the Soros Fund Management firm right around that time.”
Other establishment, pro-amnesty Republicans receiving money from employees of the Soros founded hedge fund included Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Marco Rubio and John Kasich.
These globalist-minded Republicans not only waged war throughout the primary, but many of them refused to back Trump in the general election.
Only Rubio never wavered on his endorsement of Trump, however, he also never made it a point to publically support the GOP nominee.
But Ryan famously told the GOP conference he was done defending Trump and that they should do whatever they needed to win re-election.
And Graham and Kasich also refused to endorse Trump, although McCain initially backed the GOP standard bearer, he retracted his endorsement after the release of the Access Hollywood tape showing Trump making lewd remarks.
Many believed they were acting on behalf of their donors.
And they were.
But no one knew their donors also included employees tied to a radical left-wing billionaire.
