New Email Shows Soros Regrets Supporting Obama, Can ‘Always’ Get Meeting With Hillary

In the latest round of emails from Hillary Clinton’s secret, unsecured server,┬áNeera Tanden, president of the liberal non-profit Center for American Progress, passed along a message to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from billionaire donor George Soros: Sorry.

Tanden told Clinton she’d sat next to the billionaire at a dinner for the secretive Democracy Alliance where Soros expressed regret for supporting President Obama over her in the 2008 Democratic primary.

“He then said he regretted his decision in the primary – he likes to admit mistakes when he makes them and that was one of them. He then extolled his work with you from your time as First Lady on,” Tanden wrote Clinton.

In addition to regretting backing Obama over Clinton, Soros added he appreciates his ease of access to Clinton. Tanden reported Soros saying “he’s been impressed that he can always call/meet with you on an issue of policy and said he hasn’t met with the President ever (though I thought he had).”

George Soros is a major donor to liberal causes and has donated more than $2 million to the pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA Action.
