For The First Time Ever, Lawsuit Targets Billionaire OxyContin Family For Causing Opioid Epidemic

Members of the Sackler family, who’ve made billions pushing their deadly OxyContin drug on the masses are arguably responsible for more deaths than any Mexican drug cartel. Instead of being hunted down at their plush mansions by DEA agents, they are rubbing elbows with members of Congress. Now, however, for the first time, the family is being targeted by a landmark lawsuit for the damages they knowingly caused with their products.

On Tuesday, the state of Massachusetts filed a lawsuit against the multi-billionaire Sackler family over the role their drug OxyContin has played in sparking one of the worst addiction and overdose epidemics in history. The lawsuit accuses the company, Purdue Pharma, and its heirs of spinning a “web of illegal deceit” which fueled the deadly crisis in which America currently finds itself.

What sets this lawsuit apart from the numerous other lawsuits targeting opioid manufacturers — including several against Purdue — is that it has taken the landmark step of personally naming the company’s executives.

According to Maura Healy, Massachusetts state attorney general, the suit names 16 current and former executives and board members, including the chief executive, Craig Landau, and eight members across three generations of the Sackler family that wholly owns Purdue.

“Purdue Pharma and its executives built a multi-billion-dollar business based on deception and addiction. We’re suing,” Healey tweeted Tuesday.

As the Guardian reports, the lawsuit alleges Purdue deceived patients and doctors about the risks of opioids, pushed prescribers to keep patients on the drugs longer and aggressively targeted vulnerable populations, such as the elderly and veterans.

“Their strategy was simple: the more drugs they sold, the more money they made, and the more people died,” Healey said on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Purdue issued a statement in response to the lawsuit in which they denied all allegations.

“We share the attorney general’s concern about the opioid crisis. We are disappointed, however, that in the midst of good faith negotiations with many states, the Commonwealth has decided to pursue a costly and protracted litigation process,” the company said in a statement. “We will continue to work collaboratively with the states toward bringing meaningful solutions.”

According to reports, in just the last decade, in the state of Massachusetts alone, the company sold 70 million doses of prescription opioids, bringing in more than half a billion in revenue.

“It was Purdue’s executives who led and directed this illegal business model, leading to addiction and deception to enrich a few while leaving a path of devastation and destruction in its wake,” Healey said.

According to Healey, more than 670 Massachusetts residents have died solely from the result of ingesting the Sackler family’s drugs.

Purdue, along with several other companies who knowingly pushed opioids on people who did not need them, is facing more than 300 lawsuits from city and county authorities across the country. However, this is the first one which goes after the individuals who became exceedingly wealthy from the sale of this drug.

According to the Guardian, the Sacklers being sued are: Theresa and Beverly, the widows of the brothers Mortimer and Raymond Sackler who built the company into the narcotics giant it is today; Ilene, Kathe and Mortimer David Alfons Sackler, three of Mortimer’s children; Jonathan and Richard Sackler, Raymond’s two sons; and David Sackler, Raymond’s grandson. These family members and a number of their siblings and children are collectively worth an estimated $13bn, according to Forbes, with the vast bulk of the fortune generated from sales of OxyContin. Feuding family members have mostly declined to talk about the opioids crisis and avoid discussing their links to it.

As previously reported, Purdue Pharma, under the guidance of brothers Arthur, Raymond, and Mortimer Sackler, began a propaganda campaign to push their new drug, as described in The American Journal of Public Health, “The Promotion and Marketing of OxyContin: Commercial Triumph, Public Health Tragedy.”

One of the primary missions of Purdue Pharma was to identify the doctors across America prescribing the most pain medication and strategically marketed the drug directly to them as a safe alternative to other pain medications.

According to the LA Times:

“The Times’ investigation, published in July, disclosed that for more than a decade, an internal security team at Purdue monitored doctors and pharmacies it suspected of colluding with dealers and addicts. In the case of the L.A. ring, criminals set up a phony clinic near MacArthur Park in 2008 and worked with corrupt physicians and pharmacies to obtain pills over 18 months.

A Purdue sales manager dispatched to investigate the high volume of prescriptions at the clinic found a rundown building thronged with rough men and urged supervisors to alert the Drug Enforcement Administration, saying she was “very certain this is an organized drug ring.”

Despite her pleas and additional evidence suggesting that pills were pouring into the hands of criminals, company officials did not go to authorities until years later when the drug ring was out of business and its leaders under indictment. By then, 1.1 million pills had spilled into the illicit pipeline.

These disturbing revelations came after a prior investigation that found Purdue maintained a secret Purdue database of 1,800 suspect doctors, but only about 10 percent of them were reported to law enforcement.

As doctors began to readily hand out this new drug, these high dose pills became a scourge across main street America. Drug users increasingly turned to OxyContin for the powerful high and euphoric effects, comparable to heroin, but which can reportedly last for over eight hours.

Instead of investigating the company for their overt and dangerous tactics, the government and establishment welcomed them into their ranks. Even after dozens of lawsuits exposing this corruption, in an entirely irresponsible and hypocritical move, the FDA approved a measure to give OxyContin to children.

The fact that some people are freely allowed to market potentially deadly drugs, while others are thrown in a cage for the same activity, seems to highlight that not all people are equal in the eyes of the state or the law. Hopefully, this landmark lawsuit will expose this insidious paradigm.

New FBI Files Show Feds Gave Billionaire Pedophile Epstein Freedom In Exchange For ‘Information’

In a strange and unexplained move, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced on Thursday that it released a trove of documents from an investigation into billionaire hedge fund manager and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and one of the most notable revelations is that he appears to have worked as an FBI informant, in exchange for a lenient sentence.

After multiple underage girls in Florida reported that they were being paid by a mystery man to have sex with middle-aged men, and all roads led back to Epstein’s mansion, the FBI launched an investigation in 2006. A report from The Guardian noted that federal prosecutors “identified 40 young women who may have been illegally procured by Epstein,” which easily should have resulted in Epstein spending years in prison if as many as half of the women testified against him.

Epstein was also caught running a child sex ring, in which he hosted rape parties for his wealthy friends on his private jet, the Lolita Express, and on his private island, which was referred to as “Orgy Island.”

It should have been a textbook case that would have made the FBI look heroic for putting a serial pedophile behind bars. However, the opposite happened. Epstein agreed to a plea deal for one minor charge in 2008, and he ended up spending just 13 months in prison, out of the 18-month sentence he was given for “soliciting prostitution and procuring a minor for prostitution.”

In addition to the ridiculously light sentence, the Palm Beach Post reported that in exchange for the year Epstein spent in prison, “federal prosecutors agreed not to pursue allegations that he had abused dozens of other teenage girls, instead of allowing them to file civil lawsuits against Epstein.”

The “sweetheart deal” given to Epstein has angered many Americans, especially those who have been sentenced to years in prison for nonviolent crimes. While there has been speculation as to whether Epstein’s wealthy financial status kept him out of prison, the latest release of documents from the FBI indicates that Epstein’s plea deal included more than just money.

The FBI released nearly 300 pages of documents in eight parts on Thursday. Although the majority of the content was made up of clippings from newspaper articles about Epstein, lists of the pages that had been deleted, and large blank spaces where information was being redacted, there was one document that stood out. Page 21 of Part 6 stated:

“On 09/11/08, case agent advised writer that Epstein is currently being prosecuted by the State of Florida and is complying with all conditions of his plea with the State of Florida. Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon. Case agent advised that no federal prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the State of Florida. Case agent also advised that no further forfeiture assistance will be required for this case.” 

The sentence claiming that “Epstein has also provided information to the FBI as agreed upon” indicates that the billionaire agreed to supply the FBI with some sort of “information,” in exchange for his plea deal.

What could Epstein have possibly provided information about? It is no secret that he was known for having wealthy and powerful friends. Former President Bill Clinton was among Epstein’s closest friends, and the flight logs from Epstein’s private jet revealed that Clinton was listed as a passenger on the jet at least 26 times between 2001 and 2003, which would have put Clinton on the plane at least once a month during the two-year period.

Epstein was also close friends with Prince Andrew, who was named in a lawsuit filed by a woman in 2014, claiming that when she was a teenager, she was kept on Epstein’s private island where she treated as a “sex slave” and forced to have sex with Prince Andrew.

President Donald Trump is another name on Epstein’s list of wealthy friends, and in 2002, he described Epstein as a “terrific guy” who had been his friend for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side,” Trump said.

The federal prosecutor who was responsible for Epstein’s offensively light sentence was attorney Alexander Acosta. Instead of facing backlash, he was promoted, and last year he became the United States Secretary of Labor after he was nominated by Trump.

Whether the “information” Epstein provided to the FBI to get out of spending years in prison could have been about Clinton, Trump, Prince Andrew, or any of his other wealthy friends, the fact is that the FBI is confirming that has no problem setting a sexual predator free to continue to harm young girls, a decision that arguably hurts the public more than it helps.

Cryptocurrency Billionaire Trying to Split California Into Three States…

Tim Draper, the billionaire venture capitalist and legend in the world of cryptocurrency, has an idea: Let’s split California into three separate states.

There are at least five reasons why this idea is doomed from the start, but first, here’s his case:

The way Draper sees it, smaller states would be run by more efficient and less bureaucratic governments as they compete for residents and business. Education, safety, infrastructure and health care would improve. Taxes would be lower. And the investor who made a name for himself funding tech giants like Hotmail, Skype and Tesla Inc. says he “won’t have to think anymore about moving myself, Draper Associates, the Draper Venture Network and Draper University out of California.”

Draper — who scored a huge windfall a few years back when he bought a load of bitcoin that had been seized by the U.S. government— has gone from being a Democrat to Republican to Libertarian to, well, his own party that believes California’s government’s problem is that it lacks competition. The party platform is simple: break up California.

Draper says he’s already gathered more than 600,000 signatures for his initiative, almost double the number he needs to get his plan on the ballot come Election Day. He still needs to get the signatures verified and confirmed by counties by June 13.

Doctor For Billionaire Sex Slave Ring NXIVM, Charged for Conducting Horrific Human Experiments

doctordoctor

New York, NY – Dr. Brandon Porter, a physician described as the resident doctor to the NXIVM sex trafficking cult, has been charged with conducting illegal human experiments by the New York medical oversight board.

The decision by the New York Department of Health comes after they initially refused to act on a complaint from former cult member Jennifer Kobelt, who claimed that she was forced to watch graphic dismemberment and rape videos as part of an alleged “fright study” Porter was conducting.

Kobelt, in her August 2017 complaint, alleged that Porter may have conducted his “fright study” on as many as 100 people.

“He continued to film my reaction for at least 10 minutes as I just sat there, dry heaving like I was going to puke and crying very hard,” Kobelt said in her complaint to the Health Department, adding that Porter began showing her the violent images without warning, according to a report from the New York Post.

“He failed me, not only as a friend but as the medical practitioner I had trusted on numerous occasions with my health while I was in New York,” Kobelt said in the complaint.

Amazingly, in a Sept. 6, 2017, letter to Koblet, the state Office of Professional Medical Conduct (OPMC) explained that they would not investigate Porter, specifying that “the issues you have described are not medical misconduct.”

Apparently, now that the public spotlight is on the NXIVM cult, the OMPC has changed its tune, as the New York Post reports that Porter is now accused of moral unfitness, gross negligence and gross incompetence among other charges.

Porter is accused of showing “human subjects an actual video of the horrific and brutal murders and dismemberment of four women by machetes; and violent film clips, including a male African American being viciously stomped by a Nazi; a conscious male being forced to eat a portion of his own brain matter; and a graphic gang rape.”

Additionally, the doctor faces charges of violating state law by improperly conducting studies on Tourette’s syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and brain wave monitoring of NXIVM program attendees without their permission.

The Free Thought Project has been closely following the developments of this story, and last week reported on connections between the celebrity sex cult and its billionaire backers. Although largely ignored by mainstream media, the alleged leaders of the organization, Keith Raniere and Smallville actress Allison Mack, were not just arrested for human trafficking—but were arrested and charged with slavery and child sex trafficking.

There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that rather than being a simple self-help group as NXIVM members proclaim, or even a sex cult as the mainstream media suggests, the group may actually be a front for an elite-based child sex trafficking ring—as the group’s ties have been revealed to extend to numerous power-elite ruling class families, including the Bronfmans and Clintons.

With alleged leaders Raniere in jail and Mack out on bond with conditions that include not having contact with other NXIVM cult members, Clare Bronfman has allegedly taken on the role of leader within the organization. Bronfman and her sister, Sarah, are alleged to be the primary financial backers of the cult, funding the organization with hundreds of millions of dollars. The Bronfman sisters are heirs to the Seagrams liquor fortune.

The charges against Mack accuse her of working in a quasi-management position within the organization. The complaint alleges that as second-in-command, Mack served as a recruiter who worked to lure women into the purported self-help program as a means of convincing them to sign up for the “advanced program” called Dominus Obsequious Sororium, which required women to essentially become subservient to Raniere.

Dominus Obsequious Sororium is a quasi-Latin phrase that roughly translates to “Master Over the Slave Women.”

“As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere. The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit,” U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donoghue said in a statement.

Women within the Dominus Obsequious Sororium were then allegedly required to give Raniere blackmail in the form of nude pictures or damaging information to be used to keep women from speaking out if they left the group. They were also forced to sign over their finances, maintain weight requirements and even be surgically branded with a symbol that included Raniere’s initials.

As TFTP reported in November 2017, “the cult was finally exposed when the daughter of former Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg became a member. Oxenberg told the New York Times that she became concerned after she saw that her 26-year-old daughter India was extremely emaciated from dieting and was suffering from serious health problems.”

“Some people have said this is a voluntary sorority. The women I have spoken to tell a far different story,” Oxenberg said. “Coercion is not voluntary. Extortion is not voluntary. Blackmail is not voluntary.”

Once the accusations against NXIVM became public, numerous other women, including actress Sarah Edmondson, came forward to all to tell the same story of the blackmail, branding, forced labor, and sexual slavery.

Porter has a hearing set for June 27, and if the charges against him are substantiated he could face suspension or revocation of his medical license. Upon resigning from St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany last fall, Porter reportedly fled town. The Post reports that the New York Health Department would not comment on the OPMC’s action and Kobelt declined to comment.

Billionaire-Backed Sex Trafficking Cult Partied With Richard Branson on His Private Island

bransonbranson

Last week, The Free Thought Project reported that a celebrity sex cult backed by billionaires has been accused of trafficking children. The leaders of the organization, Keith Raniere and Smallville actress Allison Mack were arrested and charged with child sex trafficking and slavery.

Now that Raniere is in jail and Mack is on bail and ordered not to have any contact with other cult members, Clare Bronfman has taken on the role of leader within the organization. Bronfman and her sister, Sarah, are the primary backers of the cult, funding the organization with hundreds of millions of dollars. The Bronfman sisters are among multiple heirs to the Seagrams liquor fortune.

One of the main whistleblowers in the case is Frank Parlato, a former NXIVM publicist who has been leaking verifiable information to the press through his blog Frank Report. In a new post this week, Parlato provided evidence of another interesting connection in this case—Billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson.

According to Parlato, the organization hosted multiple events on Branson’s private island, Necker Island. Although Branson denies any connection with the group and claims that he was not present at the events on the island, he is quoted in an endorsement on one of Raniere’s websites, and there are photos of him with NXIVM members.

“The tools you have for compassionately dealing with complex ethical and global issues are not only unique but also extremely valuable. This, along with a program of coordinated, organized resources, makes for an innovative approach to transforming our society. I think your founding event will be extraordinary and potentially world-changing!” Branson said of Raniere.

Parlato says that this quote was given in connection to one of Raniere’s events on Necker Island, which was also attended by Allison Mack, and the Bronfman sisters. Parlato also provided photos of Branson with NXIVM members on the island, including Sara Bronfman.

However, before this evidence surfaced, Branson vehemently denied any connection with the organization. Many news sources initially reported on the events at Necker Island, but Branson forced multiple outlets to retract the information.

After removing mentions of Branson, many sources published his statement, which read:

“There is no association between Keith Raniere and Sir Richard Branson and Sir Richard has no recollection of ever taking part in a seminar hosted by NXIVM. Clare and Sara Bronfman did hire Necker Island several years ago and we understand they hosted a gathering for team members of NXIVM. The island is available for hire by the public and this was one of many gatherings held on the island over the years by various groups from across the world. Sir Richard was not aware of any of the allegations against NXIVM or its leader whatsoever and did not himself host any intensive courses for the group.”

According to Parlato, Nancy Salzman was at one of the events and saw Branson there.

“Nancy said she did the teaching by day. But she said he became increasingly restless and hosted really crazy parties that started earlier and earlier. The classes started at 7 a.m. and were supposed to run to 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. but everyone was up late at night and no one wanted to show up on time. Salzman said that at Sir Richard’s parties some of the women gave pole dancing performances,” he said.

Parlato also said that the Bronfman sisters were hoping to recruit Branson into the organization.

“Part of the reason they staged NXIVM seminars on Necker was NXIVM hoped to recruit Branson into the organization. Branson would have been the biggest score they ever had—a billionaire businessman. Several group members, including co-founder Nancy Salzman, Allison Mack, Kristin Kreuk, Emiliano Salinas and others went to Necker for two seminars in 2007 and 2010. They partied hard with Branson too,” Parlato said.

Branson’s island is a popular vacation destination for politicians and celebrities. Just last week, Kanye West talked about hanging out with Barack Obama on the island. Sara Bronfman reportedly paid $250,000 per visit for use of the entire island.

While it is possible that Branson had no clue about the group’s illegal activities, it is interesting that he was so quick to deny any connection to the group and its members when he was obviously a present participant in at least one of these events at Necker Island.

Since the grim details of the cult have come to light, more high-level connections, both big and small, continue to be revealed. Last week it was reported that former Trump adviser Roger Stone worked as a lobbyist for the group for two months in 2007, however, Stone claims that he broke from the group after refusing to take a class.

Hungary Introduces “Stop George Soros” Bill Effectively Forcing Out the Billionaire’s Organization

sorossoros

Budapest, Hungary – Lawmakers in Hungary introduced “Stop Soros” legislation in February to “empower the interior minister to ban non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that support migration and pose a national security risk.” As a result, George Soros’ Hungary-based Central European University, will relocate to Vienna, according to a report by Reuters.

The move against Soros-affiliated organizations by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban is due largely due to his foundation’s stance on mass immigration, as well as deep connections to numerous color revolutions, the Arab Spring, and many other political uprisings across the globe. Although “democracy promotion” is the stated mission, in reality, the many Soros-linked organizations largely operate in service of forwarding the Western globalist agenda.

Reuters reported that Central European University (CEU) “signed an agreement with the City of Vienna to open a new satellite campus there.” The move stems from a law in Hungary that set tougher restrictions on awarding licenses to foreign universities (CEU originated in New York).

“The new law stipulated that CEU must open a branch in its ‘home state’ of New York alongside its campus in Budapest and secure a bilateral agreement of support from the U.S. government,” reports Reuters.

Soros’ Open Society Foundation on Friday vowed to not leave the country until after the expected passage of the “Stop Soros” bill and accused Hungary’s government of trying to silence non-governmental organizations.

“The government has committed to passing the ‘Stop Soros’ law … It will be a symbolic step which serves to stifle non-government groups,” OSF spokesman Csaba Csontos told Reuters, noting that the organization was currently weighing its options.

Reuters reported that the European Commission has taken Hungary to the European Court of Justice over the Soros NGO draft law, accusing the government of violating the right to freedom of association.

But Orban, who won a landslide victory in this month’s election, has good cause to be suspicious of Soros’ OSF and its activities in Hungary—as one need only look at the example of Ukraine to clearly see how the hidden hand of Soros-linked organizations set the stage for later actions that resulted in a coup that overthrew the democratically elected leader of Ukraine.

A report in New Eastern Outlook explains precisely why Orban made moves to stifle Soros’ OSF:

The totality of what is revealed in the three hacked documents show that Soros is effectively the puppet-master pulling most of the strings in Kiev. Soros Foundation’s Ukraine branch, International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) has been involved in Ukraine since 1989. His IRF doled out more than $100 million to Ukrainian NGOs two years before the fall of the Soviet Union, creating the preconditions for Ukraine’s independence from Russia in 1991. Soros also admitted to financing the 2013-2014 Maidan Square protests that brought the current government into power.

Soros’ foundations were also deeply involved in the 2004 Orange Revolution that brought the corrupt but pro-NATO Viktor Yushchenko into power with his American wife who had been in the US State Department. In 2004 just weeks after Soros’ International Renaissance Foundation had succeeded in getting Viktor Yushchenko as President of Ukraine, Michael McFaul wrote an OpEd for the Washington Post. McFaul, a specialist in organizing color revolutions, who later became US Ambassador to Russia, revealed:

Did Americans meddle in the internal affairs of Ukraine? Yes. The American agents of influence would prefer different language to describe their activities — democratic assistance, democracy promotion, civil society support, etc. — but their work, however labeled, seeks to influence political change in Ukraine.

Although the EU has commenced legal action against Hungary for the draft law, Orban stands by the legislation as he believes the Open Society Foundation promotes mass immigration against the will of the Hungarian people he was elected to represent.

In October, Orban said of the hedge fund billionaire, “The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies. Its aim is to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration.”

Anyone familiar with the history of the Soros Open Society Foundations in Eastern Europe, and around the world, since the late 1980s, will know that his supposedly philanthropic “democracy-building” projects in Poland, Russia, or Ukraine in the 1990s allowed Soros the businessman to literally plunder the former communist countries’ wealth, according to the New Eastern Outlook.

When Orban, who was elected to a third term on April 8, was asked about the prospect of an OSF departure during an interview with state radio MR1, he responded, “You might understand if I don’t cry my eyes out.” He went on to point out that migration would remain at the top of the European agenda.

The use of NGO’s to attempt to undermine states not beholden to the current Western neoliberal order has been an ongoing point of contention, which saw Russia kick USAID out of the country in 2012 amid accusations of attempting to incite protests and influence the Russian presidential elections.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, while Soros is not a James Bond villain, the billionaire financier’s efforts to control the direction of global politics, through the use of his vast fortune, cannot be disregarded, or understated, as it has a major effect on the manifestation and direction of global politics. When one person leverages such massive amounts of wealth into influencing global political discourse, it’s the average person’s voice that is drowned out by the sea of cash.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

US Gov’t Admits Funding Political Change at the Direction of Billionaire George Soros

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) channeled funds into a ‘Justice for All’ campaign to reform the judicial system in Albania in 2016. The campaign was run by Soros’s East West Management Institute, according to the conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. The group obtained 32 pages of State Department documents in a legal battle, which concluded with the US government submitting to a Judicial Watch Information Act (FOIA) request in exchange for a dropped lawsuit.

“The Obama administration quietly spent at least $9 million in US taxpayers’ dollars in direct collusion with left-wing billionaire George Soros’s backing of a socialist government in Albania,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.

Soros is a billionaire and “shouldn’t be receiving taxpayer support to advance his radical left agenda to undermine freedom here at home and abroad,” Fitton added.

 

Following the report’s publication, a USAID official told Fox News that the agency did not provide grants to Soros’s Open Society Foundation (OSF) in Albania, which is technically true according to the Judicial Watch publication. Instead, the US embassy in Tirana and the OSF “each provided funding to a local organization to conduct a public opinion poll on attitudes towards the Judicial Reform effort,” a document from February 2017 said. The poll’s result sounded favorable for the judicial reform championed by the OSF and the Obama administration.

“For decades, there has been broad bipartisan agreement in Washington, DC, on the need to promote democracy and human rights abroad,” a spokesperson for OSF told Fox News in a statement, adding: “Of late there has been an unfortunate and misguided effort to politicize this process.”

Fitton and Judicial Watch were especially critical of US Ambassador to Albania Donald Lu, whom the group called in the statement “a holdover from the Obama administration” and an official with inappropriately close ties to Soros. The embassy in Tirana, they point out, frequently asks representatives of the OSF to “participate in technical reviews” of applications for funding USAID receives, according to a February 2017 memo.

Judicial Watch accuses Lu of interfering in Albanian politics by backing the country’s ruling Socialist Party at the expense of the opposition. The group said that in May 2017 Lu declared that the US would recognize the results of the Albanian general election even if the opposition refused to participate.

In March 2017, five Republican senators wrote to then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, asking about claims that US taxpayer funds were spent on interfering in the internal politics of countries such as Albania, as well as neighboring Macedonia.

“This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the US government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles,” Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) said at the time, adding that “this behavior is unacceptable and must be halted immediately.”

Judicial Watch has also made FOIA requests about the activities of Soros groups in Macedonia, Romania and Colombia.

Judicial reform in Albania remains a matter of controversy. In December last year, opposition parties in the national parliament tried to stop the appointment of an interim prosecutor general – with is part of Albania’s transition to the new system – by igniting smoke bombs in the chamber. The radical move was meant to express protest against what they called an unconstitutional move by the ruling party.

Last month, the political establishment in Washington was up in arms over the Trump administration’s proposal to cut the budget for “democracy promotion” activities abroad, specifically funding for the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and its partisan adjuncts, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI).
