Rep. Adam Schiff, who authored a rebuttal to Devin Nunes’s memo about the Trump-Russia investigation, is now the target of conspiracy theories and fake news.
The rumor then spread to fake news sites. The conspiracy-minded TruthFeed reported that “Twitter is on fire with the revelation that Democratic party mouthpiece Adam Schiff turns out to have ‘family ties’ to none other than George Soros himself” and posted a series of tweets about the alleged connection. The article used a series of images of tweets:
Breitbart News reports:
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was previously financially aided by the George Soros-financed MoveOn.org to win his Congressional seat.
Schiff was also awarded the Toll Fellowship, which is sponsored by the Council of State Governments, a nonprofit that monitors federal government activities and is heavily financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
The Open Society and Soros-funded groups have additionally supported a number of Schiff’s legislative efforts.
Schiff has been helping to lead the Democrats’ unsubstantiated charges of alleged collusion between President Donald Trump and Moscow.
Last month, Schiff delivered the opening statements at a Congressional hearing where he laid out the case for alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. This reporter previously documented serious problems with Schiff’s charges, which include wild conspiracy theories and heavy reliance on a questionable source.
Wonder if he’s beholden to Soros now? We believe he is! Remember that Schiff has been lying and leaking since day one of Trump presidency. He believes the end justifies the means even if it’s corrupt.
Daily Mail reports from 2015 during messy Soros divorce:
One thing billionaire George Soros and his 51-year-old son Robert appear to share is an interest in much-younger women.
On a flight back from the Venice Biennale to New York on Sunday, Robert was seen making out with his new 29-year-old girlfriend Jamie Singer throughout most of the flight, in front of his soon-to-be ex-wife who was seated just a few rows back, according to the New York Post.
Robert’s father George Soros, the 84-year-old Hungarian-American business magnate, married a woman exactly half his age in a lavish ceremony two years ago.
Robert, who serves as the president of the family’s $28billion Soros Fund Management firm, is currently in the midst of a bitter divorce from his wife Melissa Schiff, a photographer and filmmaker.
Disregarding their 22 years of marriage and the two college-aged children they raised, Robert appears to have vindictively tried to make his ex suffer through the flight over the weekend.
‘Robert and Jamie were openly affectionate for the entire flight, while they knew Melissa was seated five or six rows behind,’ a source told the Post. ‘Melissa had to endure 8 ¹/₂ hours of this behavior all the way back to New York. She didn’t make a scene, but it was uncomfortable for her and for others in the business-class cabin who were appalled by his brazen behavior.’
