CNN’s Supposedly GOP Pundit Gave Big Bucks to Democrats

 

Network's Never-Trump consultant has donated thousands to liberal politicians and causes

Excerpt:

 

A CNN contributor whom CNN bills as a “Republican consultant” has given more than $18,000 to Democratic candidates since 1997, including thousands to a New Jersey senator currently on trial for corruption charges.

 

Ana Navarro gave another $2,000 to political action committees known as Democrats Win Seats and Help Elect America’s Team.

 

It's odd behavior for a Republican consultant.

 

On Sunday's edition of CNN's "State of the Union," ultra-liberal Democrat Jennifer Granholm, the former governor of Michigan, urged Navarro to switch parties.

 

Navarro said she needed to stay in the GOP. Navarro then insisted her bipartisan cash contributions and her relentless, sometimes out-of-bounds attacks on President Donald Trump are no worse than Trump's supposed sins.

 

"I was a Republican when the president you support was a Democrat, and I was a Republican when the president you support was an independent," said Navarro.

 

But that's not clear at all.

 

Menendez and Wasserman Schultz

 

A look at the Center for Responsive Politics' donor database of large contributions shows Navarro has been giving to Democrats since 1997. Her first major contributions listed were to Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) in June 1997, and then she made two $200 donations to Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.).

 

Over the years, she has given to other top foes of the GOP, including $1,000 to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the former chair of the Democratic National Committee.

 

For Navarro, the relationship with Menendez — on trial on Sept. 6 for fraud and bribery — is long but not complicated. Like most of what motivates Navarro, the political relationship appears to have started based on Navarro's efforts to loosen immigration laws as an activist and attorney for a immigration-focused law firm.

 

Navarro frequently listed her employment at the Bander Law Firm in Miami Shores, Florida. The firm specializes in immigration and nationality laws, and notes it was founded in 1980 "at the gateway to Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Gulf."

It's odd behavior for a Republican consultant.

 

It's worth pointing out (Again!) that "Republican" doesn't mean "Conservative".

 

The Republican's she's worked for? Jeb Bush, John McCain, Jon Huntsman Jr.

Face it - If she really was anything resembling a "conservative" "republican", she wouldn't be allowed in the building, let alone allowed to actually work there.
