A group tied to billionaire George Soros is attacking President Trump's nomination for the Supreme Court.

Demand Justice, a political advocacy group linked to Soros, is spending millions of dollars to derail Catholic Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The non-profit receives millions from atheist leftist Soros and has earmarked $5 million to keep Kavanaugh off the High Court bench.

Demand Justice is organized and financed by another tax-exempt group, Sixteen Thirty Fund, which received more than $2 million from Soros' Open Society Policy Center between 2012 and 2016.

Demand Justice was formed earlier this year to specifically target Trump's judicial confirmations.

Brian Fallon, executive director, told The New York Times that the group strives to "sensitize rank-and-file progressives to think of the courts as a venue for their activism and a way to advance the progressive agenda."

The group is backed by leftist alums from the Obama administration and the failed presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Kavanaugh's nomination represents the first significant political conflict since Demand Justice was founded this spring.

The group's multi-platform effort to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation will feature TV spots promoting embattled Democratic incumbents and pro-abortion Catholic senators in the midterm races this November.
