1998 “60 Minutes Interview” of Evil “Guiltless” George Soros

In an infamous 60 Minutes interview, which the Soros network and his media allies have worked hard to spin, Soros coolly agreed that he had “helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.” Then he denied any feelings of guilt. “It’s just like in the markets — that if I weren’t there — of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would,” he observed. Soros was born in 1930, making him nine when the war broke out and 15 when it ended.

Tivadar Soros, George’s dad, had his son George assume a non-Jewish identity — “Sandor Kiss” — and pose as the godson of a Hungarian agriculture ministry bureaucrat named Baumbach, whose job was taking inventory of Jewish properties confiscated by the Nazi occupiers. Soros accompanied Baumbach on one job, traveling to the estate of a wealthy Jewish aristocrat named Moric Kornfeld.

Tivadar Soros offered an account of the trip in his 1965 autobiography titled Masquerade: Dancing Around Death in Nazi Occupied Hungary, except he described Baumbach as “Baufluss” and described his son’s role:

The following week the kind-hearted Baufluss, in an effort to cheer the unhappy lad up, took him off with him to the provinces. At the time he was working in Transdanubia, west of Budapest, on the model estate of a Jewish aristocrat, Baron Moric Kornfeld. There they were wined and dined by what was left of the staff. George also met several other ministry officials, who immediately took a liking to the young man, the alleged godson of Mr Baufluss. He even helped with the inventory. Surrounded by good company, he quickly regained his spirits. On Saturday he returned to Budapest.

In subsequent interviews and writings, Soros said he “accompanied an official of the Ministry of Agriculture, posing as his godson, when he was taking the inventory of a Jewish estate,” confirming his evil-doing.

KROFT: (Voiceover) You’re a Hungarian Jew…

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm.

KROFT: (Voiceover) …who escaped the Holocaust…

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm.

KROFT: (Voiceover) …by–by posing as a Christian.

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Right.

KROFT: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

Mr. SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.

KROFT: In what way?

Mr. SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a–a very personal experience of evil.

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

Mr. SOROS: No.

KROFT: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?

Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c–I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.”

Jerry Nadler Warned U.S. of Dangers of Partisan Impeachment

House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who led the partisan impeachment effort against President Trump exactly 21 years later “an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other.”

Nadler, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) have led the charge on the Democrat impeachment effort against Trump. It has garnered no Republican support thus far, according to the New York Times‘s latest tally, showing zero Republicans supporting the two articles of impeachment at this point.

Nadler, however, warned of the dangers of a partisan impeachment effort exactly 21 years ago during former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment, proclaiming that it would “produce decisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come.” He even warned that it would cause Americans to question “the very legitimacy of our political institutions” and referred to it as a “partisan coup d’etat”:

The worst aging quote from any politician in history happened 21 years ago today:

“And we must not do so without an overwhelming consensus of the American people. There must never be a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other,” Nadler warned.

“Such an impeachment will produce decisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions,” he continued.

He added:

The American people have heard the allegations against the president and they overwhelmingly oppose impeaching him. They elected President Clinton. They still support him. We have no right to overturn the considered judgment of the American people.

He also called the effort “a partisan railroad job.”

“This partisan coup d’etat will go down in infamy in the history of this nation,” he added:

Quote from the man leading the only totally partisan impeachment in history:

“There must never be an impeachment supported by one of our major political parties & opposed by the other.”

Another flashback recently surfaced featuring Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who referred to the impeachment effort against former President Bill Clinton as a “coup d’état.”

“They know that these allegations do not meet the test of the Constitution. They know that they’re not impeachable offenses, but they press forward because it is really a coup d’état,” Waters proclaimed on December 16, 1998.

“They are trying to do with this impeachment what they were unable to do at the ballot box. The American people should be outraged. The American people should let them know … that we will not stand for it,” she told the crowd:

On this day – December 16, 1998 – Rep. Maxine Waters stood next to Santa Claus and called impeachment a “Coup D’état.”

Despite their past positions, both Nadler, Waters, and their fellow Democrats are overwhelmingly in favor of impeaching the president.

“It’s a sad day for our country,” Rep. Steve Womack (R-AZ) wrote on Wednesday.

“This baseless impeachment inquiry has been anything but fair, failed to meet the very standards outlined by Speaker Pelosi herself, and proven to be nothing more than a partisan vendetta. It’s not about the facts – it’s about politics,” he added:

“Democrats have already lost public support for #impeachment,” Oversight Committee Republicans tweeted. “But there’s no going back now.”

“The American people will not forget this partisan circus,” it added:

We are now debating the Democrats’ rule on the Articles of Impeachment. They won’t allow amendments to even be considered.

They’re continuing their unfair, biased, partisan process all the way to the bitter end.

Today, for the first time in our history, the U.S. House of Representatives will #impeach the President of the United States with an entirely partisan vote.

This impeachment circus should have never started and it has been a complete disgrace to our country.

— Rep. Jason Smith (@RepJasonSmith) December 18, 2019

Today is the day that House Dems have been eagerly anticipating since @realDonaldTrump was elected.

Precedent, facts, and the American people have been ignored to rush this impeachment to a vote.

This #ImpeachmentSham is a partisan attempt to overthrow the duly elected POTUS.

— Bill Johnson (@RepBillJohnson) December 18, 2019

This was impeachment in search of a crime. And they never found one—because there wasn’t one.

Democrats have no case to impeach @realDonaldTrump.
