Lots of documents from George Soros organisations, including Open Society Foundation, were leaked online. Russian state-sponsored hackers were involved in wrongdoing, according to US security services.
More than 2,500 documents, including strategies, plans and funding requests, from Soros-funded organisations, were posted on DCLeaks.com. “Soros is an oligarch sponsoring the Democratic party, Hillary Clinton, hundreds of politicians all over the world,”
the hackers posted on DCLeaks this Saturday when they released the documents.
Security experts now say that site shows the marks of the same Russian intelligence outfit to the group that exposed emails from Democratic Party leaders in the days before party’s national convention last month.
The documents released over the weekend are grouped into sections relating to the U.S., Europe, Asia, the World Bank and other topics.
The Soros communications reveal strategies, priorities and reports on European elections, migration and asylum in Europe.
The documents also show that Open Society pumped millions into organisations supportive of Palestinian civil society organisations, including Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel. Pro-Israel groups have seized on the leaks as evidence that Soros, a Hungarian-born Jewish philanthropist and holocaust survivor, is anti-Israel.
Open Society Foundations reported the initial breach to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in June, said spokeswoman Laura Silber. At that time investigation by a private security firm found the intrusion was limited to an intranet system used by board members, staff and foundation partners. The hackers could have access the foundation’s network for nearly a year.
The DCLeaks site has previously revealed emails of former NATO general, Philip Breedlove, showing he attempted to convince Barack Obama to start a conflict with Russia over Ukraine in 2014.
