Report: Activists Disrupting Kavanaugh Hearings Are Funded By Soros, Democratic Donors

Left-wing groups that disrupted the confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh have admitted that they were funded by George Soros and other major Democratic donors, according to an exclusive report from The Daily Caller.

The Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and Housing Works organizations apparently scheduled the disruptions; The Daily Caller wrote, “The cash from the donor-funded groups goes toward the protesters’ post-and-forfeit payments — a small cash sum paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time.”

The Daily Caller got wind of a conference call conducted by representatives from the three groups on Monday night, and used the dial-in code for the call to listen to the entire conversation, where the participants discussed two anti-Kavanaugh protests; one scheduled for Thursday at a confirmation hearing for lower-court nominees, and another next Monday.

CPD national field organizer Darius Gordon reportedly stated that protesters required a government-issued ID and “your cash for the post-and-forfeit.” Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis allegedly added that if protesters didn’t have their own money, the left-wing organizations would supply funding for the projected post-and-forfeits to protesters who didn’t show up with their own money. Davis apparently asserted, “If you do not have access to your cash we will certainly be able to arrange to get it to you before the action,” adding that such a procedure had been implemented at previous anti-Kavanaugh protests.

Women’s March co-president Bob Bland reportedly insisted, “Postponement isn’t enough,” adding that the allegation from Kavanaugh’s female accuser was “an incredible revelation.”

Of the scheduled protest next Monday at Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings, Davis boasted, “Just because they’ve delayed something doesn’t mean we’re done. It’s actually going to get very, very ugly.”

The Daily Caller noted that Soros is a primary source of funding for CPD, and also pointed out that Women’s March lists Planned Parenthood as its “exclusive premier sponsor.”
