The Transition Integrity Project – which bills itself as a bulwark against President Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 election – is founded by a Board Member of George Soros’s Open Society Foundation and A Vice President of the Chinese Communist Party-linked Berggruen Institute, the National Pulse can exclusively reveal.
The Transition Integrity Project (TIP) appears to be another establishment-sanctioned offensive to nullify the Trump presidency akin to impeachment and the Russian collusion hoax. Now, however, TIP’s paramount concern is President Trump’s refusal to relinquish the presidency should Democratic candidate Joe Biden win given the potential for a botched election resulting from mail-in ballots and coronavirus.
The breathless media coverage of TIP in the last few days has hailed the group’s “bipartisanship,” but a National Pulse investigation has found that the group is anything but. In reality, it’s another globalist front comprised of Soros staffers, linked to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and appears to exist for the express purpose of backing Biden’s claims to the White House in an event of a disputed election in November.
TIP claimed to have “war-gamed” potential outcomes of the 2020 election with a host of establishment figures such as Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign Chair and Obama-era Counselor John Podesta, Never Trump Republican National Committee (RNC) Head Michael Steele, and acting chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Donna Brazile who leaked presidential debate questions to Clinton in 2016.
In one concerning iteration, Podesta, who acted as Biden, seized the presidency by “failing to concede as Mrs. Clinton had.”
Buried in the New York Times coverage, Podesta’s refusal to accept defeat in November.
The Establishment Strikes Back.
The project, whose ranks include individuals dead-set on removing President Trump from office since his inauguration, is founded by Rosa Brooks and Nils Gilman.
Brooks was an Obama-era Counselor to Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and Special Coordinator for Rule of Law and Humanitarian Policy along with a Senior Advisor t0 Bill Clinton’s State Department. She also served as Special Counsel to the President at the Open Society Institute and now serves on the advisory board of the foundation, the brainchild of progressive mega-donor George Soros.
Penning a piece entitled “Three Ways to Get Rid of President Trump Before 2020” in Foreign Policy just 10 days after his inauguration, Brooks declared “four years seems like a long time to wait,” and plotted several methods to see the duly-elected president removed.
She championed impeachment, reveling in weaponizing the seldom-used maneuver without any evidence of an actual crime: “If impeachment seems like a fine solution to you, the good news is that Congress doesn’t need evidence of actual treason or murder to move forward with an impeachment: Practically anything can be considered a “high crime or misdemeanor.”
She also floats the prospect of “a military coup, or at least a refusal by military leaders to obey certain orders.”
Brooks also serves as a fellow at the New America Foundation (NAF), which enjoys financial backing from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Google. NAF’s CEO Anne Marie Slaughter served as Director of Policy Planning in the Obama administration and the foundation’s board features individuals like Fareed Zakaria, a CNN host and Washington Post contributor who was recently exposed by the National Pulse for collaborating with a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) funded “Marxist journalism” school.
Gilman serves as the Vice President of Programs at the Berggruen Institute which hosts the Berggruen China Center and has funneled tens of millions of dollars into CCP-run universities such as Peking University – merely scratching the surface of the institute’s CCP overtures.
The Berggruen Institute’s China initiative lists a bevy of Chinese government-run entities as partners including the Beijing Academy of Artificial Intelligence, China Institute for Innovation and Development Strategy, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence.

The institute’s 21st Century Council, which aims to thwart “the anti-globalization backlash that brought nationalist and populist movements to power in major countries,” features tech bigwigs like Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and member of Facebook’s Oversight Board, responsible for reviewing censorship, Helle Thorning-Schmidt.
Also included influential group is Director of Shanghai-based Chengwei Capital Eric Li, who penned a Foreign Policy op-ed entitled “Xi Jinping is a Good Emperor,” extolling the brutal CCP leader while insisting “opportunism and shirking responsibility are not within Xi Jinping’s character.”
Another member is Fred Hu, whose bio states he “advised the Chinese government” on finance, currently sits on the Hong Kong Government’s Strategic Development Committee and the Advisory Committee for the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission. Former Deputy Governor of state-run Bank of China Zhu Min and Zhang Lei, a member of the Hong Kong Financial Services Development Council and governing board member of the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF), a CCP-funded propaganda initiative chaired by high-ranking CCP apparatchik Tung Chee Hwa, also serve on the council.
Finally, regular Trump-haters such as Arianna Huffington, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, and Pierre Omidyar – who is widely believed to be one of the critical supporters of Bill Kristol and the neoconservative ‘Lincoln Project’ team set up to establish “Republican opposition” to President Trump – appear on the list.
The organizer of the group, Ms. Brooks, admitted in an interview with WBUR: “We had people like Bill Kristol on the conservative side, as well as people who had worked for big tech companies.”
Receiving a plethora of fawning coverage from establishment outlets, TIP was highlighted in The New York Times for its “war-gaming” of various electoral outcomes ranging from “a big popular win for Mr. Biden” to “a narrow electoral defeat.”
In one simulation, Podesta, acting as Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden, refused to concede the election with states threatening to secede from the U.S. if President Trump assumed office:
“For their war game, they cast John Podesta, who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, in the role of Mr. Biden. They expected him, when the votes came in, to concede, just as Mrs. Clinton had. But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College. In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump.”
Never Trump Washington Post columnist Max Boot also recounted the bizarre war game, noting, “Unless Biden wins by an electoral college margin that no one can credibly dispute, our democracy may be imperiled as never before.”
Also included in TIP’s ranks is David Frum along with “a host of former elected officials, government staffers, consultants, and even journalists.”
Despite hammering TIP’s bipartisan nature, not one Trump-supporting Republican has been identified as a member of the project.
What emerges in the news coverage of the organization is clear to anyone not signed up to the NeverTrumper removal of the President: an entity linked to Soros, Gates, the Chinese Communist Party, and NeverTrumpers – collaborating to remove a sitting President of the United States, even if he wins in November.
