White House Pe­ti­tion asks Trump to De­clare Ge­orge Soros a Ter­ror­ist

The Jewish Voice - - NATIONAL - By: Caitlin Yilek

AWhite House pe­ti­tion is call­ing on Pres­i­dent Trump to de­clare lib­eral bil­lion­aire Ge­orge Soros a ter­ror­ist and seize the as­sets of or­ga­ni­za­tions tied to him.

The pe­ti­tion, which needs 100,000 sig­na­tures by Sept. 19 to gar­ner a White House re­sponse, has al­most 60,000 sig­na­tures as of Thurs­day afternoon.

"Whereas Ge­orge Soros has will­fully and on an on­go­ing ba­sis at­tempted to desta­bi­lize and other­wise com­mit acts of sedi­tion against the United States and its cit­i­zens … The US Fed­eral gov­ern­ment, the DOJ should im­me­di­ately de­clare Ge­orge Soros and all of his or­ga­ni­za­tions and staff mem­bers to be do­mes­tic ter­ror­ists, and have all of his per­sonal an or­ga­ni­za­tional wealth and as­sets seized un­der Civil As­set For­fei­ture law," the pe­ti­tion posted by E.B. reads.

Soros has helped or­ga­nize op­po­si­tion against Trump.

An­other pe­ti­tion ask­ing Trump to rec­og­nize the an­tifa move­ment as a ter­ror­ist group re­cently reached the 100,000-sig­na­ture thresh­old af­ter which the White House must re­ply.

The White House has yet to re­spond to that pe­ti­tion.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, the Wash­ing­ton Free Bea­con re­ported sev­eral weeks ago that Ge­orge Soros gave nearly $1.7 mil­lion to a po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tee run by his long­time trea­surer to aid a Demo­crat who is run­ning for the district at­tor­ney po­si­tion in Philadel­phia, Pa., the lat­est in a series of such ex­pen­di­tures.

Soros has gen­er­ously funded a num­ber of district at­tor­ney races through­out the United States in re­cent years via po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tees that tend to shut down af­ter each elec­tion.

Soros cut a $1,450,000 check on April 28 to the Philadel­phia Jus­tice & Pub­lic Safety PAC, a su­per po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tee es­tab­lished on May 5 that lists its address at the D.C. of­fice of the Perkins Coie law firm. Whit­ney Ty­mas, who has been in­volved with a num­ber of Soros PACs, is listed as the PAC's op­er­a­tor, records show. The PAC's pur­pose is to back pro­gres­sive at­tor­ney Larry Kras­ner, the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee for district at­tor­ney in Philadel­phia.

Soros made a sec­ond do­na­tion to the Philadel­phia Jus­tice & Pub­lic Safety PAC on May 23 for $214,000, bring­ing the to­tal amount that he has pushed into the Philadel­phia district at­tor­ney race to nearly $1.7 mil­lion dol­lars. This is the first time a su­per PAC has sup­ported a can­di­date for district at­tor­ney in the city.

Beth Gross­man, a pros­e­cu­tor who is the Repub­li­can nom­i­nee for district at­tor­ney in Philadel­phia, said it is dis­turb­ing that Soros, an out­sider who "knows noth­ing" about pub­lic safety is­sues in the city, is throw­ing mas­sive amounts of money be­hind her "far-left" op­po­nent.
