After news broke recently that John McCain’s McCain Institute for International Leadership was taking money from anti-American billionaire George Soros, the institute’s administrators are now refusing to disclose a list of its donors.
Republican Senator John McCain has been a thorn in the side of conservatives for the better part of two decades and today he is the face of the anti-Trump resistance among establishment Republicans, so naturally, the media loves him. But, recently it was discovered that his organization is the lucky recipient of a large amount of donations from Soros, one of the most dangerous, anti-American leftists in the world, and a long list of other foreign donors.
According to Daily Caller:
McCain’s “legacy” foundation is stuffed full of Soros cash not to mention cash from a long list of American enemies.
Daily Caller reminds readers that McCain was the big man behind the McCain-Feingold act that aimed to “reform” campaign finance rules. And yet, here is his bid deal “institute” refusing to tell the nation just who is donating to its causes.
But the McCain Institute — created in 2012 with an $8.7 million donation of funds remaining from McCain’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign — refused Monday to disclose the amounts it received from its biggest donors who gave $100,000 or more.
The Institute did note that it has a list of donors on its website. But DC also pointed out that the amount donated is not listed and not disclosed.
However, the McCain Institute declined to spell out exactly how much money each big donor contributed. The web site only lists donors who have given “$100,000 and above,” which can be misleading.
The Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, for instance, is identified as giving $100,000 or more on the Institute’s website. In reality, the Saudis gave $1 million.
DC also disclosed that one of the reasons that McCain housed his Institute at Arizona State University is just for the exact purpose of hiding donors.
Indeed, many of McCain’s donors are foreigners.
Of the 37 donors who contributed $100,000 or more to the McCain Institute, one in three originate from either foreign principals, overseas corporations or foreign governments, according to the nonprofit’s web site. One big donor is anonymous.
And Sen. McCain can’t pretend that he is distant from this group, either.
Not only is McCain’s name on the masthead, he is also the honorary convener of the McCain Institute’s signature spring annual meeting, the Sedona Forum. The Sedona Forum is a “high level, private gathering” held at the luxurious Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Ariz.
Now, with all these millions in foreign donations, doesn’t this whole deal smack of the same lies and influence peddling the Clintons are guilty of with their own so-called foundation?
Yet, here is McCain doing exactly the same thing.
Why won’t you disclose your foreign donors and their donations, Sen. McCain?
