Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas rushed to the defense of billionaire leftist Geroge Soros, calling him an “American and patriot” during a recent House Committee Hearing.
Lee defended the billionaire after several Republicans called Soros out for funding Democrat DAs across the country.
The Democrat congresswoman accused Republicans of “jeopardizing Soros’s life” by making accusatory commentary against him.
Sheila Jackson went on to declare Soros as an “American and a patriot.”
As The Daily Fetched reported, Soros has been making large donations to Democratic candidates for many years, most notably left-wing prosecutors who allow cities across America to crumble under exploding crime.
According to tax forms, Open Society Foundations poured at least $35 million into anti-police groups in 2021.
Soros has bankrolled many anti-police groups and initiatives working on efforts to overhaul the criminal justice system in recent years.
The billionaire has also backed dozens of far-left prosecutors, including Kimberly Graham, who received over $300,000 in backing for her Polk County Attorney Democratic primary election.
Earlier this year, Soros attempted to defend his support for electing radical prosecutors describing the “false choice” between “justice” and public safety.
Soros wrote in The Wall Street Journal:
“We need to acknowledge that black people in the U.S. are five times as likely to be sent to jail as white people. That is an injustice that undermines our democracy.”
“In recent years, reform-minded prosecutors and other law-enforcement officials around the country have been coalescing around an agenda that promises to be more effective and just.”
“This agenda includes prioritizing the resources of the criminal justice system to protect people against violent crime.”
One of the DAs Soros backs is Alvin Bragg, who is overseeing Trump’s Stormy Daniel’s hush money case.
