The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, who is spearheading the Democrats’ efforts to establish proof of collusion between President Trump and Moscow, previously received funds from the George Soros-financed MoveOn.org to campaign for his congressional seat.
Schiff has also been tied to the Council of State Governments — a nonprofit organization that monitors federal government activities — as a recipient of their Toll Fellowship. The Council of State Governments is largely funded by the Open Society Foundation, another Soros group.
Schiff’s legislative efforts have also been supported by The Open Society and Soros-funded entities.
In March, Schiff delivered the opening statements at a congressional hearing where he detailed the case for alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Reporter Aaron Klein of Breitbart has outlined the problems with Schiff’s claims which include “wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source.”
MoveOn.org openly aided Schiff’s initial campaign for Congress in 2000 when he defeated Republican incumbent Jim Rogan.
On January 1, 2000, The Wall Street Journal published this report: “If MoveOn were to achieve its ambitious goals, it just might have a big impact on this year’s struggle to control Congress, especially the House. House impeachment manager James Rogan of California, faces a challenge this year from Democratic State Senator Adam Schiff, for whom MoveOn to date has raised $106,000.”
Another report was filed by CNN: “By 2000, MoveOn.org was raising $2 million for Democratic candidates, including more than $100,000 to help California’s Adam Schiff beat Congressman James Rogan, one of the House managers during Clinton’s impeachment trial.”
In January of 2010, MoveOn.org also funded a rally supporting health care reform outside of Schiff’s office in Pasadena, California.
Schiff introduced the Criminal Justice Reinvestment Act in 2009. The Justice Center at the Council of State Governments supported the legislation’s intent to provide “grants to state and local governments to design and advance data-driven, consensus-based strategies to reduce corrections spending and increase public safety.”
Legislation proposed by Schiff in 2014 was bolstered by the Open Society Foundation which released a public statement supporting the bill “requiring the president to provide an annual public report on the total number of persons killed or injured in drone strikes.” The Open Society Foundation also signed a joint statement with other entities funded by Soros that supported Schiff’s Targeted Lethal Force Transparency Act.
