Trump Official Fiona Hill Has Ties to George Soros – Is She the NYT Source?

I’ve always enjoyed the rare occasions in politics where people are willing to put their money where their mouths are. So I headed over to the political betting site PredictIt to see who people were willing to wager is the anonymous author behind the controversial New York Times op-ed “I Am Part of The Resistance Within the Trump Administration.” The Times claims the author is a “senior official,” but clues in the piece itself make that unlikely.

To my surprise, most gamblers are betting that the anonymous writer is Fiona Hill, a woman I’ve admittedly never heard of before. Gamblers were willing to bet that there was at least a 10% chance she’s the anonymous source (as of this writing). Hill serves on the National Security Council, and is Trump’s top adviser on Russia and Europe.

After the Times piece was published, speculation initially turned to Mike Pence, then Nikki Haley, and even Jon Huntsman, but all have denied the allegations.

But could it be Hill? She is, after all, the only person on the Trump team who simultaneously has a direct connection to George Soros. From 2000-2006, Hill served as an adviser to Soros’ Open Society Institute, which is responsible for many of the political donations Soros makes.

How do we know? Because she lists it on her own resume.

What is a former employee of George Soros doing within the Trump Administration? That’s a question that needs to be answered – and it’s hardly the only left-wing institution she’s been associated with during her campaign. Hill has worked with the left-wing Brookings Institution since 2009. Trump hiring Hill would be the equivalent of Obama having hired someone from the Heritage Foundation.

Furthermore, her views on Russia are in line with the new hysterical take most Democrats have. In 2013, she wrote a book along with a colleague at Brookings titled, “Mr. Putin: Operative in the Kremlin.” According to one summary, “The book depicts Putin as a super-scheming former KGB operative and paints a picture of the Russian president as paranoid for believing that the U.S. was seeking to pull the Ukraine from Russia’s orbit and install an anti-Russian leader. It was later revealed the State Department under Hillary Clinton was indeed involved in doing just that, according to reporting from esteemed journalist Robert Parry. The authors contend the U.S. and Russia are in a virtual state of war and will remain so for the foreseeable future.”

Roger Stone has been sounding the alarm on Hill since she was hired.

Whose side is she on? Could she be a mole within the Trump Administration? Given that our own FBI planted a spy within the Trump campaign, it wouldn’t be conspiratorial to suspect as much.

Making things even more interesting, former Trump campaign manager Michael Caputo told CNN that he’s 100% sure he knows the identity of the anonymous writer. He also said, “I don’t believe this person is in the White House.” More so, Caputo indicated that he believes the writer is female. Hill meets both criteria.

CNN also named Hill as a potential author in its own speculative piece, “13 people who might be the author of The New York Times op-ed.” She was also named as a potential candidate in a New York magazine report.

Again, we don’t know for sure if it’s Hill. But it’s definitely possibly, perhaps even likely.
