George Soros a Film Investor
Many people or groups have called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. This is due to individuals not agreeing with President Trump’s tactics and unconventional methods used to get his way. One name that stands out on this long list of frustrated people that do not support the president is George Soros.
Soros is famous for breaking the Bank of England with his trade that shorted the British Pound Sterling. He is a billionaire thanks to the great investments he has made throughout his career. The reason why you may not have heard of Soros advocating for the impeachment of Trump is that he is using his wealth to make this move from behind the scenes by funding Brave New Films.
This article will go through the strategy of how Soros is trying to impeach President Trump. Also, there will be an in-depth look at Soros’s involvement in Brave New Films. But first, let’s take a look at Soros’s political views.
A Brief Background on Soros’s Political Beliefs
George Soros is known to be a Democratic supporter. Soros even gave pro-Hillary Clinton SuperPACs millions of dollars. This is important to note because this gives Soros a little more of an incentive to work to impeach President Trump. Since Soros is a billionaire, he possesses some power in the political circle even if he is not looking to run for office himself.

When Trump won the election, Soros did not throw support behind the president. Rather, he called for immediate action against Trump. This only adds further evidence for Soros wanting Trump impeached as the president.
How Is George Soros Involved in Brave New Films?
I am sure by now you have heard of a group of billionaires contributing their wealth toward a cause close to their heart. One of the billionaires on the list is George Soros.
Soros has created a charity organization through which he makes his donations and makes his visions come true. It goes by the name Open Society Foundations. The foundation was formed in 1979 when Soros determined that he had enough money in his bank accounts and wanted to do something that would positively influence society.
The foundation has made an impact thanks to the billions of dollars Soros contributed to education, public health issues, defending human rights, and developing democracy governments in Eastern Europe. As of October 2017, Open Society Foundations is the second-largest private philanthropy in the United States, backed by an $18.0-billion endowment fund from Soros. In total, Soros has donated more than $32.0 billion to his foundation. This foundation has worked around the world in more than 100 countries. (Source: “History,” Open Society Foundations, last accessed December 12, 2017.)
Since Open Society Foundations has a presence around the world, it makes investments through locally driven organizations in order to make a change. This is how Soros has a link to Brave New Films; Open Society Foundations is one of the donors behind the film organization.
Why Does It Matter If George Soros Is a Donor to Brave New Films?
Brave New Films is a media company based in California. The film company produces feature-length documentaries and investigation-related videos intended to educate and empower the viewer. Millions of people around the world have seen the films made by the company.
Some of the issues covered by the media company are the war on Iraq, the 2000 presidential election, and the impact of Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) on society. More recently, the film company produced 16 Woman and Donald Trump. This is a movie about 16 women claiming that they were harassed sexually by Donald Trump.

The women in the film have said they were kissed, groped, and humiliated by Donald Trump. All of the accusations refer to events in the time period before the 2016 presidential election. Now, of course, these are accusations being made against the president. If this news happens to be true, then it could result in the president actually being impeached and Soros getting what he wanted.
The film was released in November and could not have been more perfect. With #MeToo gaining traction online, the campaign allows victims to speak against their abusers, freely and without guilt. The video could also result in more victims speaking out if they have experienced similar actions from Donald Trump. Just in the past few months, when victims have spoken up against their abusers, changes have occurred. In some cases, powerful individuals in the media have been suspended, gotten fired, or the abusers have left on their own terms.
If the video turns out to be even slightly true, it could result in the president stepping down. If it does occur, then the current vice-president, Mike Pence, would become president.
Has There Been Any Wrongdoing by George Soros with the Donation?
Well, George Soros has does nothing wrong. Yes, he is a backer of Brave New Films, which has a stance against President Trump and is in line with Soros’s views, as well. Soros has always been vocal about his thoughts on Donald Trump, so his actions should not be a surprise.
The donation through Soros’s foundation is following its mission statement and is not supporting something that it doesn’t believe in. Therefore, the donation does not alter the foundation’s intent and goal.
Yes, it was not advertised that Soros was a backer of the film company. However, this is not unusual in the industry. When a film is looking for funding, many investors are taken on, with a small group representing a large investment in a film. This happens to be the case for how Brave New Films operates.
This is a great method used by Soros to get more people involved with his dislike of President Trump and trying to impeach him.
