White House Petition asks Trump to Declare George Soros a Terrorist
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.
