Site that Posted Soros Docs Is Offline, Twitter Account Suspended

Lesson #1: Don’t get George Soros angry. You wouldn’t like him angry.

Daily Caller:

DCLeaks, a website that releases information on powerful political figures, has had its Twitter account suspended and part of its website taken offline after releasing a cache of documents on billionaire donor George Soros.

The website had previously released 2,500 internal Open Society Foundation (OSF) documents in order to “shed light on one of the most influential networks operating worldwide.” OSF is one of Soros’ networks of organizations.

The leaked documents had resulted in several damaging reports about the organization. OSF had previously confirmed that the documents were legitimate.

Before the website went offline, an OSF spokesperson had called the leaks “a symptom of an aggressive assault on civil society and human rights activists that is taking place globally” in a statement released to The Daily Caller.

By mid-Saturday afternoon, the DCLeaks page with the Soros documents was no longer online. The rest of the DCLeaks site was running smoothly — only the Soros pages appeared to be offline.

The DCLeaks Twitter account was suspended by Twitter around the same time with no explanation.

This was a surgical operation, taking down one specific part of a website and leaning on Twitter to suspend the account. For someone with the resources of George Soros, it was a piece of cake.

Despite the fact that the documents leaked were sheer dynamite, there was a curious lack of, well, curiosity on the part of the media to dig into them.

Now we know why.
