A Swiss billionaire is investing millions and millions of dollars to influence US elections. There’s no evidence he’s even a US citizen.
In December 2021 we reported on three billionaires who gave millions and millions to influence the 2020 Election. They donated nearly $200 million to the Democrats to help them stop President Trump. George Soros, Pierre Omidyar and Hansjörg Wyss donated millions to Democrats.
Hansjörg Wyss, the richest man in Switzerland, donated $135 million in STF dark money donations to the Democrat Party.

Politico recently reported that the Sixteen Thirty Fund, the leading dark money machine of the Left, had pumped $410 million into Dem 2020 efforts to defeat Trump and Republicans.
The Sixteen Thirty Fund had raised a record $390 million that year and half the money came from just 4 donors. While the names of the donors are secret, the article did note the names of three major known STF backers: Pierre Omidyar, Hansjörg Wyss, and George Soros.
Here is our report:
Real Clear Politics released more information on Wyss, the mysterious black money donor to the Democrat Party, this week. His sister says he is not a US citizen.
Wyss made headlines recently by leading a consortium of investors attempting to buy the Chelsea Football Club from sanctioned Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich. He also tried unsuccessfully before that to purchase a national newspaper chain owned by Tribune Publishing. One area where the wealthy Swiss businessman has met with unquestionable success after retiring from the pharmaceutical industry: U.S. politics. He has deep pockets and deep ties in Washington as a result – connections that he tells reporters overseas extend all the way to the White House.
And yet, despite the hundreds of millions Wyss has spent bankrolling progressive advocacy groups and despite the undeniable heft Wyss throws around in the Democratic Party and its causes, one question has remained unanswered in the American press. Despite being a power player in U.S. politics for decades, it was unclear whether or not Wyss is a permanent resident in the United States or an American citizen.
The New York Times reported that they did not know the answer. Neither did beltway periodicals like Politico or the Hill. According to a biography of Wyss, written by his sister Hedi Wyss and reported first by RealClearPolitics, the answer is no.
How is Wyss’s allowed by law to give to political efforts in the US? How can this be legal? Why not let China’s Xi do the same?
As the New York Times noted in a story about Wyss a year ago, foreign nationals without permanent residency are forbidden from donating directly to federal political candidates or political action committees. They have not, however, been barred from giving to groups that seek to influence public policy. A watchdog group, meanwhile, has filed suit over that distinction.
“Americans for Public Trust is suing the FEC for failing to investigate foreign money in our elections,” Caitlin Sutherland, executive director of Americans for Public Trust, told the Hill in April. “Mr. Wyss, who is barred from directly or indirectly influencing our elections, has done just that by potentially funneling hundreds of millions of dollars through the Arabella Advisors network to benefit liberal and left-wing causes. Until the FEC takes action, we won’t know the full extent of his foreign interference in our electoral process.”
Where is the FBI or DOJ on this? Are they even looking into these allegations? Or are they too busy going after grandmas with MAGA flags?
This is not supposed to be happening in America. Where is law enforcement? This is just one way on how Democrats and foreign entities can steal elections in the US.
