12 top Republicans backed by Soros in 2016

Everyone knows about millions to Hillary, but here are GOP names George likes

WASHINGTON – Everyone knows about the tens of millions of dollars various George Soros front groups poured into Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential efforts in 2016, but the Republicans he supported – from Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and his predecessor, John Boehner, have received less attention.

Republican presidential candidate John Kasich was also a big recipient of Soros largesse – to the tune at least $202,700. That makes Soros one of the Kasich presidential campaign’s top funders.

While the Soros Fund Management, just one of the Hungarian billionaire’s political tentacles, spent $224,300 on Democratic Party congressional campaigns in 2016, it also spent $31,400 on Republicans, including $10,800 on Ryan – the most of any member of the GOP, the same as it invested in Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, a Democrat.

Other GOP congressional recipients of Soros contributions include Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., ($2,500); Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. ($2,700); Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev. ($2,700); Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio ($2,600); Rep. Ed Royce, R-Calif. ($2,500); Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla. ($1,000); Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa ($1,000); Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis. ($1,000); Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash. ($1,000); and Rep. Dan Donovan, R-N.Y. ($300).

Isn't it interesting that al twelve were on the Never Trump train? Globalists protect globalists because there's a cash payoff. Anything Soros-related is suspect. Look at the paid agitators. Who's covering that payroll? If you guessed Georgie Porgie, you're absolutely correct!

These are very small amounts and I doubt those congressman even knew it was from Soros. Not really sure why Gyorgy Soros would even waste time spitting in the ocean.
Soros is like an iceberg. What you see with $2500 contributions is just the tip of the iceberg. What you don't see is the real story. He is a very evil man with very evil intentions.
Did you see Obama kite surfing? Did you see who was holding the strings? Yep, Gyorgy himself.

The corruption runs deep, far far deeper than this minuscule amount of money.
