(Before It's News)

This is skulduggery of the Obama’s State Department. And no enemedia coverage on this subterfuge.

Macedonia: Leading Republican House representative Christopher Smith announced an investigation in the activities of the US Embassy in Macedonia, and the allegations that it has acted in an openly partisan way in the past years, supporting the left wing SDSM party. The call comes after the Embassy failed to respond to a letter signed by Smith and five other GOP representatives, who demanded answers over meddling in domestic politics, but also over Embassy funding for activities of the George Soros led Foundation Open Society Macedonia.
“The US Ambassador should have absolutely no role in forming a Government and taking sides in putting together a coalition. That is not the place of the United States of America or its representative in Skopje. I asked specific questions in this letter. We asked, the group of members of the House of Representatives whether or not there was any collaboration with the center-left parties on when elections should take place. We should have no role in that! We should be talking about free and fair elections, unfettered access to the media, but in no way should we take sides. So, if this Ambassador has taken sides, he should be fired! He should be fired immediately!”, representative Smith told the Macedonian Television correspondent in Washington D.C.
Representative Smith reacts following numerous reports that the US Embassy has extended significant funds to activities of NGO groups associated with the Soros network. According to Smith, if the US Government gives funding to NGO activities, they should go to non-partisan and neutral groups, and not to the Soros led groups for whom there are long-standing allegations that they are coordinating their actions with the social-democratic SDSM party.
 

Republican lawmakers in Washington have started asking questions about whether U.S. tax dollars also were being used to fund Soros projects in the small, conservative-led country of Macedonia.  Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily — an Obama appointee — demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the U.S. Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.

It’s a suspicious financing of NGOs, something the US Embassy has failed to explain and justify thus far, Franks told the Macedonian Television.

‘We make efforts to promote human rights and freedom, something we believe in. We are grateful for the critical reports coming from your country as we wish to keep nourishing the good relations with Macedonia. We are facing suspicious US Mission’s financing of Soros-linked organizations, whose standards are counter to everything America believes in’ Franks said.

Earlier, Republican lawmakers in Washington started asking questions about whether US tax-payers money also was being used to fund Soros projects in Macedonia.

Rep. Christopher Smith, led a group of House lawmakers in writing to Ambassador Jess Baily, appointed by the Barack Obama administration, demanding answers. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also expressed concerns about USAID money going to Soros’ Open Society Foundations as part of a broader concern that the US Embassy has been taking sides in party politics.

“I have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the US Mission to Macedonia has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring groups of one political persuasion over another,” Lee said in his letter.

Baily lies on Macedonian TV

In an interview with Sitel TV, the US Ambassador was probed on his activities and coordination with the SPO to which he had no response, but afterwards lied that he has provided an answer to the official questions from US Congress on his illegal activities in Macedonia. Members of US Congress just yesterday stated they have not received any response from the US Embassy in Macedonia. Knowing his days are numbered, it’s likely much better for Baily to simply remain silent and await the slow moving US bureaucracy to begin a recall case against him which could take months. Unless Rex Tillerson himself makes a phone call, then he would be removed at once.

US Congressman Franks Slams Baily: Still No Explanation on Funding Soros NGOs

February 19, 2017, Independent Insider:

The challenge that we’ve seen is some questionable funding that the US mission has made to organization associated to George Soros, which are really the antithesis to many of the things that America believes, said USCongressman and Arizona Republican Trent Franks, in an interview with the Macedonian National Television (MRTV).

Franks has joined the Congress and Senate in criticizing the USEmbassy to Macedonia for financing NGOs related to George Soros’s foundation.
