With Democrats constantly accusing Trump of having strong links to Russia and blaming them for their supposed influence on the election, this sure is an ironic twist of fate.
Russian hackers demanded large amounts of ransom money from more than a dozen different Democrat groups. In return, the Russian hackers wouldn’t tell anyone these groups had funded the anti-Trump protests, via Breitbart.
These groups were forced to pay anywhere from $30,000 to $150,000 in order to keep these hackers quiet.
This was all done through Bitcoin to ensure the money trail could not be traced by the authorities.
It is believed the group of Russians behind these ransom demands were the same people who hacked the Democratic National Committee back in 2016.
The original hack exposed many scandals within the party, which surely contributed to their stunning loss in the 2016 election.
A lot of these left wing groups ended up giving in to the hackers. The Democrat groups were likely trying to protect other sensitive information, not just their funding of anti-Trump protests around the nation.
Not content in spending their own money, a left leaning nonprofit worker and an unnamed donor also supposedly spoke about using government funded grants to protest the Trump administration. The gall of these people!
For many months now, conservatives have been accusing billionaire George Soros of funding some of these left wing groups and anti-Trump protesters, such as Black Lives Matter.
While Soros has always denied this, he has a long track record of funding political organizations, both on these shores and throughout the world. He is despised in many parts of Europe for encouraging similar behavior over there, which has wreaked havoc.
It is still unclear if these left wing groups paid the protesters themselves or merely paid for the supplies used during the protests. Either way, they clearly have a few things to hide.
