A top executive for George Soros’ Open Society Foundations has close access to the Biden White House, where he has had multiple meetings.
Tom Perriello, who serves as the executive director for Soros’ Open Society Foundations US team and was a former Democrat member of Congress for Virginia, has visited the White House 13 times over 8 different days between May 2021 and September 2022, according to a review of visitor logs by Fox News.
While it is unclear who he met for meetings, visitor logs do detail who greeted him. Some of those who met Perriello include Jordan Finkelstein, the chief of staff to Biden advisor Anita Dunn, Richard Figueroa, who serves as a race and ethnicity policy advisor, and Rachel Chiu, the chief of staff in the office of political strategy and outreach.
Perriello also serves on the board of Governing for Impact, a secretive group that Soros funded to the tune of millions of dollars, that seeks to influence the Biden administration, producing multiple policy recommendations for dozens of federal agencies.
Alex Soros, George’s son, has also had multiple White House meetings, including two with Ron Klain, the outgoing chief of staff for Biden. The White House refused to comment on the nature of the meetings between Perriello and administration officials.

“Open Society is dedicated to advancing inclusive democracy and prosperity, and human rights, in the United States and around the world,” Soros’ group said in a statement. “Our leadership, like our grantees, actively advocate with policymakers to advance these goals, and that includes engaging with policymakers from both parties. Tom also has taken meetings on behalf of Open Society and in his personal capacity as a former Member of Congress.”
Parker Thayer of Capital Research Center, who initially discovered the existence of Governing for Impact, argued that Perriello’s “frequent lunch meetings” were more proof that “Governing for Impact, and by extension, George Soros, is secretly calling the shots on regulations that will affect the daily lives of millions.”
Earlier this month, a 13-year-old article from The Sunday Times went viral, detailing a secretive 2009 meeting between a cadre of ultra-wealthy billionaire financiers, who are said to have discussed curbing global “overpopulation” behind closed doors.
In the article, journalist John Harlow wrote that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates hosted a secretive summit nicknamed the “Good Club,” featuring wealthy attendees such as Soros himself, along with David Rockefeller Jr, Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, and others.
The meeting, which took place in Manhattan on May 5, 2009, at the home of British Nobel prize-winning biochemist and president of Rockefeller University, Sir Paul Nurse, was reported as “so discreet that some of the billionaires’ aides were told that they were at ‘security briefings.'”
