Two left-wing organizations and leading members of the anti-Trump “resistance” are behind the lawsuit challenging President Trump’s transgender military ban filed in federal court on Wednesday.
GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and the National Center for Lesbian Rights filed the lawsuit challenging the president’s new policy — which has not yet been put into action — on behalf of five transgender service members.
The organizations claim that preventing transgender persons from openly serving in the military — which was long-standing military policy before the Obama administration reversed it in June 2016 — is unconstitutional.
When Trump appointed Steve Bannon as White House chief strategist, the NCLR released a hysterical statement calling Bannon’s appointment “a betrayal of the American people and of our democracy.”
Left-wing financier George Soros has funded both GLAD and the NCLR in the past through his Open Society Foundations, according to internal OSF documents published by DCLeaks.[contentcards url=”http://dailycaller.com/2017/08/10/left-wing-organizations-behind-lawsuit-challenging-trumps-transgender-military-ban/” target=”_blank”]
