Billionaire investor and liberal advocate George Soros faces a $10 billion lawsuit accused of meddling in the political landscape of West African nation Guinea.
Last month, Israeli company BSG Resources filed a lawsuit in a New York Federal Court accusing the 86-year-old investor of using his influence with the government of Guinea to freeze BSG Resources out of the country’s iron ore mining contracts.
It is not the first time the liberal financier has been accused of using his vast financial empire and web of international nonprofits to sow political upheaval to achieve his personal agenda.
Republican senator Mike Lee of Utah said the Democratic mega donor has also been accused of using his Open Society Foundation to interfere with the government of Macedonia.
The billionaire’s critics in the U.S. and in his homeland Hungary charge that he masquerades as a philanthropist while manipulating the politics of a host country in order to settle his own scores.
According to court documents, BSGR alleges that “Soros was motivated solely by malice, as there was no economic interest he had in Guinea.”
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Soros used his power within the Guinea government to “freeze Israeli company BSG Resources out of the West African nation’s lucrative iron ore mining contracts,” according to Fox News.
Former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams commented, “Americans do not understand the extent to which Soros fuels this anti-constitutional, anti-American agenda.”
