Soros-Linked Former Clinton Staffer Behind 'Organized' Townhall Protests
She's like a Hemorrhoid. she just won't go away
Confirming the suspicions of Republican Chair of the House Committee on Oversight, Jason Chaffetz's comments last week, that protesters were an organized mob, FreeBeacon reports show that a group founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer is behind 'The Townhall Project' and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.
As a reminder, two weeks ago we observed that according to Chaffetz, town-hall protests are far from spontaneous, organic events, and were in fact carefully orchestrated events, which saw protesters "bused" in from afar:
Chaffetz shot back, and told KSL that the raucous reception he received at Thursday evening's town hall meeting was "bullying and an attempt at intimidation" from a crowd opposed to President Donald Trump's election. More importantly, the republican accused paid interests (here the name of George Soros has been heard frequently in recent months) of orchestrating the rising protests and violence at Republican townhalls. Chaffets said the crowd that filled the auditorium at Brighton High School in Cottonwood Heights and spilled over into a protest outside, included people brought in from other states to disrupt the meeting.
"Absolutely. I know there were," he said, suggesting it was "more of a paid attempt to bully and intimidate" than a reflection of the feelings of his 3rd District constituents.
"You could see it online a couple days before, a concerted effort in part to just cause chaos," the Utah Republican said Friday.
"Democrats are in disbelief that they have nothing but flailing and screaming to deal with this."
Democrats have insisted that recent town hall outbursts against Republican politicians occurred organically, likening them to the Tea Party.
President Donald Trump yesterday tweeted that the "so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!"
The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!
It is now clear that Trump is correct and this so-called 'Townhall Project' is organized and centralized, not organic...
FreeBeacon's Joe Schoffstall reports that a group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.
The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop of information for town hall protests across the country, is connected to a former Clinton staffer and is also closely affiliated with a number of liberal groups.
The group, which has been referenced by media outlets on numerousoccasions, bills itself as a "volunteer-powered, grassroots effort that empowers constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives."
Jimmy Dahman, a former field organizer for the Clinton campaign in Iowa, founded the Town Hall Project. Dahman claimed on CNN that the town hall events are "all organic and happening at the grassroots level."
Dahman's group is closely involved with MoveOn.org, a major progressive activist group that recently launched a website, called ResistanceRecess.com, to encourage activists to attend town hall events.
