Barack Obama may be out of office but he’s not out of the woods just yet, especially with Republicans controlling both houses of Congress and the White House.
Apparently Obama and his billionaire troublemaker buddy George Soros were funneling taxpayer cash through Soros’ USAID organization to meddle in foreign elections and fund leftist uprisings abroad. According to the Free Beacon, our hard-earned money was being sent to “extreme and sometimes violent” far-left “political activists” for one reason and one reason only – to cause unrest and spread liberalism across the globe.
After learning about Obama’s efforts from other foreign leaders, Texas Sen. Ted Crus and other leading senators are demanding Secretary of State Rex Tillerson launch a full investigation into the matter.
More from the Free Beacon:
The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.
A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).
The senators are asking Tillerson to launch a full-scale investigation into these funding efforts in order to determine how exactly the Obama administration sought to promote left-leaning causes and political parties across the globe.
The latest disclosures of this activity mirror efforts by the Obama administration to send taxpayer funds to Israeli organizations that opposed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the country’s last election.
Political leaders from a range of nations spent months informing the lawmakers about these activities.
This could be some seriously bad news for both Obama and Soros. If it’s found they were using taxpayer money to illegally fund partisan causes and civil unrest abroad, they could face a litany of charges, and make no mistake about it, the new administration wouldn’t have any problems pursuing criminal charges after the way Obama and the left have treated the new president and his cabinet.
Johnny Cash once sung that “what’s done in the dark will be brought to the light,” which is a true statement if there ever was one. The problem for Obama is ran the government like he was banking on at least another eight years of darkness to rule over Washington.
