WASHINGTON, Oct. 3, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch today released 49 pages of new documents obtained from the U.S. Department of State about U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) funding for George Soros's left-wing nonprofit organizations in Albania. The documents deal primarily with the activities of Soros' top operative in Albania, Andri Dobrushi, the director of Open Society Foundation-Albania, who was actively engaged in channeling funding to what Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban calls Soros' "mercenary army." The documents show U.S. grant money flowing through non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that profess to promote "civil society," while in fact attacking traditional, pro-American groups, governments and policies.
Judicial Watch filed a May 26, 2017, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of State and USAID after they failed to respond to March 31, 2017, FOIA requests (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (No. 1:17-cv-01012)).
