WATCH: Newt Gingrich Claims That the Plot Against Trump Was Financed by George Soros
Both the Republican and the Democrat party have supporters with deep pockets. For the GOP, it’s people like the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson. For the Democrats, it’s people like Haim Saban and Dustin Moskovitz.
But one Democratic donor is always mentioned above all others, George Soros. Whether it’s due to anti-Semitism or other reasons, the 90 year old billionaire is constantly mentioned by Conservative pundits. So it was no surprise on Sunday to hear Newt Gingrich claim the the recent “coup” against Trump was financed by Soros.
Gingrich made the comments during a Sunday Fox News show. “First, you go out and the Democrats steal five or six states, and that’s what Republicans believe we’re watching,” said the former Speaker of the House. “We think we have evidence of a lot of it. Then you turn around and you say let’s forget four years of Nancy Pelosi, let’s forgot four years of impeachment, harassment, opposition, hostility, hatred, and now that I’ve won, why don’t we get nice together?”
The former Georgia congressman continued, “I think he would have to do a lot to convince Republicans that this is anything except a left-wing power grab financed by people like George Soros, deeply laid in at the local level. And, frankly, I think that it is a corrupt, stolen election. It’s very hard for me to understand how we’re going to work together without some very, very big steps by Biden. And I have doubts if the left-wing of his party would tolerate him genuinely trying to work with Republican.”
