George Soros's son met with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan at the White House in November, days before the Democratic megadonor gave $350,000 to help reelect President Joe Biden.

Alex Soros, who oversees his father's Open Society Foundations philanthropy, met with Sullivan on Nov. 22, according to White House visitor logs released this week. He met the day before with Rachel Chiu, an official in the White House Office of Political Strategy, and with White House energy adviser Amos Hochstein, a longtime friend of Hunter Biden.

The White House visits show the high-level access afforded a prominent Democratic donor while raising questions about what influence Soros has on American foreign policy. Open Society Foundations has pushed for a ceasefire in Gaza and suggested that Israel is committing war crimes in its response to Hamas's terrorist attack on Oct. 7. While Open Society Foundations has said that Israel "has a duty to protect its citizens," it has accused the Jewish state of potential "violations of international humanitarian law," including "alleged war crimes" and "mass atrocities, including ethnic cleansing."

Open Society Foundations hailed a ruling from the International Court of Justice in January that suggested Israel was committing genocide in Gaza. The Israeli government and many American leaders blasted the court for suggesting Israel is committing genocide.

Alex Soros, who has made 25 visits in all to the Biden White House, met Sullivan alongside Yasin Yaqubie, a special adviser to Open Society Foundations. Soros was accompanied in his meeting with Chiu by Michael Vachon, a longtime aide to George Soros.

George and Alex Soros have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats so far this election cycle. The elder Soros contributed $350,000 to the Biden Victory Fund on Nov. 30, according to campaign finance records.

Open Society Foundations and the White House National Security Council did not respond to requests for comment.
