Left-wing billionaire George Soros and other wealthy Democratic donors are meeting in Washington, D.C. this week for a three-day conference to discuss the election and plot ways to influence politics with money during the next four years under President Donald Trump.
The conference is sponsored by the Democracy Alliance, a secretive cabal of rich liberals who oversee a broad network of left-wing activists groups. Since its creation in 2005, the DA has funneled almost $500 million to these groups in an effort to advance a progressive political agenda.
DA members are typically super wealthy types who love to complain about the influence of money in politics. They’re also concerned about income inequality, an issue sure to be discussed at the conference, which is being held at the ritzy Mandarin Oriental Hotel, where nightly rates run upwards of $900.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and (2020 frontrunner?) Elizabeth Warren are among those scheduled to attend the conference, according to Politico. Many of the topics planned for discussion at the conference had to be reconfigured because the group had largely anticipated a Hillary Clinton win.
The donor alliance now plans to coordinate a strategy of resistance to prevent Trump from launching a “terrifying assault on President Obama’s achievements — and our progressive vision for an equitable and just nation.”
One of the conference session will be devoted to answering the question “Was the 2016 Election Hacked?” Some liberals have suggested that, because actors believed to have ties to the Russian government were able to hack into the emails of leading Democratic officials, perhaps these same hackers managed to penetrate our voting systems and swing the election to Trump. There is no evidence to support this theory.

Liberals attacked Donald Trump for suggested that the election could be “rigged,” but they’ve been throwing around the R-word a lot lately as they struggle to cope with their feelings.
