BREAKING: Dem Impeachment Counsel Has Ties to Soros, Has Been After Trump Since Inauguration

According to a new report from Breitbart, Norm Eisen, the counsel chosen by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee to question “expert” witnesses Wednesday at its first impeachment inquiry, founded an organization funded in part by billionaire left-wing financier George Soros

Trump campaign spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany noticed Eisen has had a vendetta against Trump for quite some time, tweeting:

Democrats have selected yet another biased member of the resistance to ask questions in the impeachment hearing!

NORM EISEN BEFORE INAUGURATION: “Ramping up 2coordinate massive pushback on @realDonaldTrump

The “Trump War Room” tweeted:

Norm Eisen, the Democrat who will be questioning the impeachment “witnesses” today, is a partisan hack who’s had it out for @RealDonaldTrump since the beginning.

In November 2016 he tweeted “Vive le resistance!”

On Inauguration Day, he tweeted “Let the battle begin!”

Breitbart reports Norm Eisen, the counsel chosen by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee to question “expert” witnesses Wednesday at its first impeachment inquiry, founded an organization funded in part by billionaire left-wing financier George Soros.

Eisen founded Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) before going on to work for President Barack Obama as the White House “ethics czar,” where he oversaw the opening of visitor logs (though administration officials simply responded by taking meetings with lobbyists offsite).

He was later appointed as U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic, and returned to take up a post at the liberal Brookings Institution. He was also a CNN political commentator until this year, and appeared on television frequently to attack the Trump administration.

Open Society Institute was an early funder of CREW, which quickly developed a reputation for left-wing bias. As recently as 2017, the Washington Times noted, Soros’s Open Society Foundations “donated $1.35 million in 2017.”

Eisen bought into the “Russia collusion” hoax, co-authoring a New York Times op-ed in December 2018 in which he referred to  “new evidence of collusion with Russia” in the investigation of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller ultimately found no such evidence of collusion after two years of investigating — though Eisen also referred to Michael Cohen in his questioning of witnesses on Wednesday, suggesting that Trump might have committed an impeachable offense by considering a pardon for Cohen and for others accused of wrongdoing.
