Six high ranking Republican senators have teamed up to write a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson imploring him to look into the Obama administration’s efforts to meddle in foreign elections.
According to the letter, taxpayer dollars granted to entities such as George Soros’ Open Society Foundations were utilized to“push a progressive agenda and invigorate the political left” in foreign countries.
The Republican senators who have participated in such a bold move are Mike Lee, Ariz., Utah, Jim Inhofe, Okla., Thom Tillis, N.C., Ted Cruz, Texas, David Perdue, Ga., and Bill Cassidy, La.
The senators inquired into USAID about funds that were meted out to the U.S. Mission in Macedonia, which has been constituted in building a coalition government since the decision of its December 2016 elections.
The letter goes as followed:
“Unfortunately, we have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the U.S. Mission there has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as in the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring left-leaning political groups over others.”
“We find these reports discouraging and, if true, highly problematic.”
