To attack the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) brought legal experts to a press conference on Tuesday in order to discredit the process. What Schumer did not mention is that all of his “experts” came from organizations with financial ties to liberal megadonor George Soros.

Schumer introduced three names: Kristine Lucius of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Daniel Goldberg of the Alliance for Justice, and Elliot Mincberg of the People for the American Way.

George Soros’s left-wing funding front, Open Society Foundations (OSF), has financial ties to all three organizations.

Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and Human Rights: The OSF repeatedly listed this organization’s research arm, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund, as a grantee in annual reports in the mid-2000s. As recently as January 2018, Soros’s funding arm awarded a grant to Vanita Gupta, the president and CEO of the education fund.

Alliance for Justice: According to The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, this organization received “six-figure donations” from Soros’s foundation. A posting on Open Society’s website lists AFJ as the recipient of a $250,000 grant in 2009. But donations are be as high as $1.6 million, according to the website Activist Facts.

People for the American Way: Soros’s organization has flooded PFAW with cash in recent years. According to OSF’s website, the group raked in a $700,000 grant from Soros in 2012, and the Media Research Center reported in 2017 that Soros donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to PFAW in order to organize an anti-Trump International Women’s Day march.

One thing is clear from Schumer’s press conference – he and George Soros are teaming up to try and derail Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
