Iowa’s Chuck Grassley Blames George Soros For Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters

In saying George Soros is funding protesters, Sen. Grassley helped mainstream a conspiracy rooted in antisemitism.

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Friday that he thinks George Soros is likely behind the protests against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I have heard so many people believe that. I tend to believe it," he said.

In doing so, Grassley helped mainstream the far-right anti-Semitic conspiracy theory, popular among the likes of Alex Jones and the Gateway Pundit.

President Trump followed suit shortly after, tweeting that he too believes Soros is bankrolling anti-Kavanaugh protests.
