It seems that George Soros’ name keeps popping up anytime there’s a scandal involving liberal Democrats. According to a 2017 report at Breitbart, Soros was instrumental in helping fund the political career of Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
Aaron Klein reported:
Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was previously financially aided by the George Soros-financed MoveOn.org to win his Congressional seat.
Schiff was also awarded the Toll Fellowship, which is sponsored by the Council of State Governments, a nonprofit that monitors federal government activities and is heavily financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
The Open Society and Soros-funded groups have additionally supported a number of Schiff’s legislative efforts.

Schiff has been helping to lead the Democrats’ unsubstantiated charges of alleged collusion between President Donald Trump and Moscow.
In largely forgotten history, Schiff’s 2000 Congressional campaign against Republican incumbent Jim Rogan was openly aided by MoveOn.org.
On January 1, 2000, the Wall Street Journal reported on the radical group’s fundraising efforts for Schiff. The Congressional seat was particularly important since Rogan had gained fame after he was selected to be one of thirteen House Managers in the 1998 impeachment case of Bill Clinton. Rogan was supportive of Clinton’s impeachment and became a hero in the Republican Party.
“By 2000, MoveOn.org was raising $2 million for Democratic candidates, including more than $100,000 to help California’s Adam Schiff beat Congressman James Rogan, one of the House managers during Clinton’s impeachment trial,” CNN said.
There’s a whole lot more, here.
And then there’s this 2014 report from the UK Daily Mail which says that Robert Soros, the 50-year-old son of George Soros, was in the midst of a divorce from one Melissa Robin Schiff after more than 20 years of marriage.
Is there a familial connection? The Daily Mail article doesn’t say, but the Internet is exploding with speculation that there is. A comparison of the congressman’s Wikipedia bio and the New York Time’s wedding announcement, however, shows the two Schiffs have a completely different set of parents.
The 1992 Times article said:
Melissa Robin Schiff, the daughter of Marlene S. Schiff of New York and the late Dr. Haskel Schiff, was married May 5 to Robert Daniel Soros, a son of Annaliese Soros and George Soros, both of New York. Rabbi Dr. David Posner performed the ceremony at Temple Emanu-El in New York.
The Wikipedia entry for Rep. Schiff notes:
Schiff was born in Framingham, Massachusetts, the son of Edward and Sherrill Ann (Glovsky) Schiff. He was raised in a Jewish family, and moved to Danville, California during high school. He received a political science degree from Stanford University and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School.
Of course, that doesn’t mean Rep. Schiff isn’t connected to Soros, but it certainly makes for an interesting discussion…
