[Ed. – Now isn’t that a hair-raising surprise.]

A “nonpartisan” dark money group that regularly files litigation against President Donald Trump’s administration is powered by money from the Center for American Progress (CAP), the liberal think tank founded by former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta.

The Democracy Forward Foundation, a D.C.-based 501(c)3 nonprofit, was founded in 2017 to “help expose the rampant corruption in the Executive Branch and fight in court on behalf of the people it hurts.” … The foundation has filed suit against numerous government agencies, such as the Department of Justice, Department of Treasury, and the Office of Management and Budget, and has aided other entities with similar litigation, including Baltimore’s lawsuit against the Trump administration over immigration policy. …

[A] review of the group’s legal documents shows its attorneys mark the same address as Podesta’s Center for American Progress. And while the Democracy Forward Foundation did not disclose its source of funding on its initial tax forms, the Center for American Progress’s own tax forms from 2017 show that Podesta’s group passed $1 million to the foundation.
