One of the highest-ranking executives with George Soros’ far-left Open Society Foundation (OSF) has been revealed to have close access to the Biden White House, according to newly-released records.
As reported by Fox News, the executive director of OSF U.S., Tom Perriello, has made numerous visits to the White House for private meetings and public events over the last two years. Perriello also sits on the board of Governing for Impact, and is part of Soros’ inner circle.
From May 2021 to September 2022, Perriello’s name appears 13 different times in the White House visitors’ logs; September is the most recent month from the logs that is available to the public. Of those 13 appearances, three different days had multiple appointments within the same day.
“Open Society is dedicated to advancing inclusive democracy and prosperity, and human rights, in the United States and around the world,” an OSF spokesman said in a statement. “Our leadership, like our grantees, actively advocate with policymakers to advance these goals, and that includes engaging with policymakers from both parties. Tom also has taken meetings on behalf of Open Society and in his personal capacity as a former Member of Congress.”
The logs do not detail who visitors specifically meet with, but they may include the names of the White House officials who book the appointments and greet the guests upon their arrival. One person who greeted Perriello at one of the meetings was Jordan Finkelstein, the chief of staff to Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to Biden. Others include race and ethnicity policy adviser Richard Figueroa, chief of staff for political strategy and outreach Rachel Chiu, and executive secretary of the National Security Council Yohannes Abraham.
In addition to Perreillo, other key figures in Soros’ inner circle have had increased access to the White House since Biden took power. Among them is Soros’ son Alex, the chair of OSF, who has made several visits to the Biden White House, including two separate meetings with Biden’s outgoing chief of staff Ron Klain.
Soros, a far-left European billionaire, has spent years building up numerous political organizations and nonprofit groups with the explicit intent of spreading radical left-wing ideas across the world, particularly targeting the United States. Groups like OSF and others promote far-left ideas such as open borders and the idea of global warming. Since Biden took office, Soros and his groups have worked closely with the administration to craft specific policy proposals that would lead to “transformative governance,” according to a statement from Perreillo’s Governing for Impact.
