Soros Funded Professional Flake Protester

The woman who accosted Flake in an elevator before the Kavanaugh vote was a paid protester.

During the Democrat-created circus surrounding the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, a raucous leftist mob appeared to roam the halls of Congress with impunity. Kavanaugh’s initial three days of questioning before the committee was regularly interrupted by shouting protesters who had to be removed. But the moment that proved to be most affected by these protesters was a scene where Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) was accosted by a woman as he entered an elevator. She claimed that she was a victim of sexual assault and demanded that Flake vote against Kavanaugh (essentially because he represented all assailants and Dr. Christine Ford represented all victims). The moment clearly shook Flake, as he later admitted, contributing to his decision to condition his vote for Kavanaugh upon yet another FBI investigation.

But who was this woman? Well, it turns out, like many of the screaming protesters, she’s essentially a professional. The Wall Street Journal explains that Ana Maria Archila is a Colombia-born sexual-assault victim who “is co-executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy. Her salary was listed as $156,333, with a bonus of $21,378, in a recent Internal Revenue Service 990 form.” And guess who significantly funds Archila’s organization? George Soros.

This fact lends weight to President Donald Trump’s recent description of the anti-Kavanaugh protesters as “an angry left-wing mob” of “professional protesters who are handed expensive signs … paid for by Soros and others.” Democrats and the Leftmedia have been hard at work orchestrating the “Resistance,” seeking to suggest that the majority of the country is opposed not only to Trump but to conservatism in general — hence the push back from the Leftmedia to these protesters being correctly labeled a leftist mob.
