Soros-funded Group Aiding "Whistleblower"

This from Judson Phillips:

Another "non-partisan" left wing group, sponsoring the "whistleblowers ."

Is anyone shocked?

This from Tim:

Here is an older article about the Soros/Graveyard Whisltler connection. From the article:

Footnote #9 reads: "In May, Attorney General Barr announced that he was initiating a probe into the ‘origins’ of the Russia investigation. According to the above-referenced OCCRP report (22 July), two associates of Mr. Giuliani claimed to be working with Ukrainian officials to uncover information that would become part of this inquiry.”

Footnote #10 reads: "See, for example, the above-referenced articles in Bloomberg (16 May) and OCCRP (22 July).” This footnote relates to the claim in the report that "Mr. Giuliani had met on at least two occasions with Mr. Lutsenko: once in New York in late January and again in Warsaw in mid-February. In addition, it was publicly reported that Mr. Giuliani had spoken in late 2018 to former Prosecutor General Shokin, in a Skype call arranged by two associates of Mr. Giuliani.”

Footnote #11 reads: "I do not know whether these associates of Mr. Giuliani were the same individuals named in the 22 July report by OCCRP, referenced above.”

And who is OCCRP?

OCCRP describes itself as a "non-profit media organization providing an investigative reporting platform” which links "45 non-profit investigative centers in 34 countries, scores of journalists and several major regional news organizations across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.”

"We work to turn the tables on corruption and build greater accountability through exposing the abuse of power at the expense of the people,” OCCRP states. "We serve all people whose lives are affected by organized crime and corruption.”

Besides Soros-linked funding, OCCRP also receives support from the U.S. government, which has made sizeable contributions to the organization via the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), providing over $2 million in revenue in 2017, according to a financial report (pdf).

Private institutions in the same year contributed just over $2.3 million combined.

Pardon me, but why are taxpayers funding this outfit?
