Many people within the United States are hoping for a Republican takeover of Congress in 2022. Most Republicans feel that the party is in a much better position after ousting RINOs like Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Cheney, for instance, was the #3 Republican in the House of Representatives. She served in the position of Conference Chair. She was replaced in 2021 by New York Republican Representative Elise Stefanik.
Stefanik had the backing of many within the ‘MAGA’ movement. She was even endorsed by Donald Trump. He hosted a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser for her back in January. He was quoted as saying that Stefanik would ‘one day be President.’
Upon investigation of published federal campaign finance data, Launch Liberty has discovered that Stefanik has taken a lot of money from Billionaire William Henry Gates III, better known as Bill Gates.
In fact, Gates has been funding Stefanik for a number of years. As Stefanik ascended through the Republican Party, Bill Gates began to donate to her re-election campaigns. Now she has a real chance at possibly becoming Speaker of the House.
The fact that Stefanik, lauded by Conservatives everywhere, received money from Bill Gates got me asking a lot more questions. Why would somebody focused on vaccine mandates and radical climate change policies be funding top members of the Republican party?
Who else was Bill Gates funding? The answer that I discovered was startling.
Gates has purchased a massive piece of the 2022 Republican Ticket. There are so many Republicans that have received money from Gates for this 2022 election cycle that I found it necessary to list them, by State, later on in this article.
For starters, Gates funded the campaign of Dan Crenshaw, along with donating to his PAC America Reloaded.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham also received money from Gates in 2022. It should be noted that Graham is not up for re-election until 2026. Gates has been giving to his PAC since 2012.
Gates also donated to the Republican WHIP in the Senate, John Thune. He donated $5,800 to ‘Friends of John Thune’ on May 19th, and gave $5,000 to his PAC ‘Heartland Values’ just a few days later.
Thune is a Republican Leader in the Senate. The second most powerful person in the Senate chamber, if the Republicans are able to take back power. Influence over him is a tremendous power for Bill Gates.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio also received money from Gates for this cycle. Rubio was given $5,000 through his PAC called ‘Reclaim America.’
RINO Mitt Romney, Senator from Utah, also received money from Gates.
The third most powerful Senate Republican, John Barrasso, who serves as the Conference Chair, also received money from Gates. That means Gates has donated to two of the three most powerful Republicans in the Senate.
Gates also gave to his ‘Common Values’ PAC.
Republicans were not the only ones receiving money from Gates. The billionaire also donated to most of the Senate Democrat leadership.
Gates gave to Democrat WHIP and Chairman of the Judiciary Dick Durbin. He donated $2,900 to Durbin’s Campaign Committee, and $5,000 to his ‘Prairie’ PAC.
Just a month after Gates donated to West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin’s PAC ‘Country Roads’, and his campaign, Manchin reversed his stand against the Biden Climate Bill, siding with the Democrats to pass massive climate spending.
Will Bill Gates benefit from that bill? It should also be noted that Manchin serves as the Chairman of Energy and Natural Resources, along with being a Democrat Vice Chairman of Policy and Communications.
New Jersey Senator Corey Booker, also a Vice Chairman of Policy and Communications for the Senate Democrats also received a similar donation to his ‘Purpose’ PAC, and his campaign.
Democrats in the Senate who also received money from Gates include Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, and New York Democrat Paul Tonko.
In the House, gates recently funded Hakeem Jefferies, the youngest member of Democrat leadership.
Gates has simply purchased all sides of this election. Though we expect him to fund Democrats, it is quite alarming to see the scope of influence Gates plans to have on the 2022 Republican ticket. He has obviously prepared for a Red Wave.
Here is a full list of the Congressional Republicans he has funded for the upcoming 2022 cycle.

Is it possible for us to trust a Republican slate that is so financially influenced by Billionaire Bill Gates? What does it say about the integrity of those within our own party?
There is a reason why Conservative principles are never actually implemented within our policies. It is because our elections are being purchased.
Whether the Democrats maintain control or the Republicans have an astonishing ‘red wave’ in 2022, the results will be the same for Bill Gates.
He appears to have bought off every possibility. He wins, no matter the outcome.
Launch Liberty will continue to expose the truth.
