REVEALED: Meet #NeverTrumper Evan McMullin’s Secret Silicon Valley Donor
Failed presidential candidate and staunch #NeverTrumper Evan McMullin is backed by a secretive group of ‘Silicon Sultans.’ The former CIA agent is pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into the Alabama Senate Race with the hope of taking down Republican Judge Roy Moore.
Daily Caller reports:
McMullin’s recently founded non-profit organization, Stand Up Republic, jumped into the Alabama Senate race this week with a $500,000 ad buy against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. […]
One of McMullin’s large Silicon Valley donors is billionaire eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, who funded an anti-Trump super PAC during the presidential campaign.
Omidyar announced a $250,000 donation to Stand Up Republic in May through his organization, Democracy Fund. […]
Democracy Fund said the donation to Stand Up Republic was to support the group in “confronting and engaging in important work to protect the norms of our democracy and to push back against dangerous demagoguery in our politics.” […]
The identities of McMullin’s other “larger donors from Silicon Valley” remain a secret and he intends to keep it that way.
Stand Up Republic is “confronting and engaging in important work to protect the norms of our democracy and to push back against dangerous demagoguery in our politics,” claims Democracy Fund.
Following the 2016 presidential election, McMullin said “Donald Trump is not a loyal American and we should prepare for the next four years accordingly.”
The #NeverTrump isn’t playing with a full deck.
As Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller points out, many of McMullin voters regret supporting him.
I do not regret voting against Trump, Hillary, Johnson & Stein, but I regret voting for McMullin. https://t.co/HlY9ywXMWZ
