Judicial Watch Sues for Records on Taxpayer-Funded Soros Projects Overseas
MARCH 28, 2018
The conservative watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit to try to obtain records from the State Department about the taxpayer-funded political activities of George Soros’s groups in Colombia and Romania.
The watchdog said it took the action because the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) failed to respond to its Freedom of Information Act requests last fall for records relating to contracts, grants and other “allocations/disbursements of funds” by Open Society Foundation offices in Romania and Colombia.
The watchdog is also seeking information about Soros’s activities in Macedonia and Albania.
