Chuck Grassley said he believes that George Soros is paying protestors to loudly and aggressively attack Republicans for the appointment of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. No one needs to pay protestors to accost Orin Hatch or Jeff Flake in an elevator. So many people would happily do that for free!
President Donald Trump on Tuesday further outlined his conspiracy theory that protesters were hired to oppose Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, writing on Twitter that those protesters had not been paid because they “were far too obvious.” In other words, they were hired but they didn’t do the job correctly so they weren’t paid. Ring a bell?
“The paid D.C. protesters are now ready to REALLY protest because they haven’t gotten their checks – in other words, they weren’t paid! Screamers in Congress, and outside, were far too obvious – less professional than anticipated by those paying (or not paying) the bills!” Trump tweeted.
The president and some Republican senators have pushed a theory that protesters who accosted senators over Kavanaugh’s confirmation were paid to do so by wealthy liberal donors such as George Soros. Though left-leaning advocacy groups with influential Democratic donors did organize some protests, protesters said they descended on the Capitol and Supreme Court on their own, obviously.
Trump and his gaggle or republicans have yet to put forth any evidence to back up his claim of widespread paid protesters.
