The same liberal funding network that helped put Joe Biden into the White House is once more mustering its might, this time to push forward Biden’s pick for the upcoming vacancy on the Supreme Court.

With the upcoming retirement of Justice Stephen Breyer, speculation has run wild as to who Biden will put forward. While Biden himself has declared his intention to put a black woman on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), this has been met with a somewhat rocky reception, and a tough battle seems likely in the Senate to confirm.

The president is obviously going to need help lobbying important people and getting out suitable messaging to the people in order to push this goal. Enter Arabella Advisors, a group that takes pains to keep a low profile, and yet their money seems to be connected to almost every progressive cause out there, according to watchdog group Judicial Crisis Network, Fox News reported.

Arabella was founded by Eric Kessler, an official under former President Bill Clinton, in 2005. It has a subsidiary network of five groups: New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Hopewell Fund, Windward Fund, and North Fund. Those groups individually have their own, narrower areas of focus and specialty, while Arabella oversees them all and directs the overall effort. Through these groups, Arabella then connects with independent organizations and directs money to them.

Some of them, such as the Sixteen Thirty Fund, have dozens of proxy groups and networks of their own, to further obfuscate the lines of money and influence going down from the center. Through this means, Arabella is able to create the impression of a nationwide grassroots series of independent movements, rather than one centralized “dirty money” leviathan. In fairness, this does not mean every last liberal group is necessarily connected to Arabella’s money, however.

Most of the money raised reportedly comes from a core group of ultra-wealthy donors, such as Bill and Melinda Gates, George Soros, Pierre Omidyar, and Hansjörg Wyss. Other donors are active too, of course, but since Arabella itself works through proxies and does not directly donate to political campaigns, it is able to keep its donor list a secret, beyond the aforementioned names too big to hide.

In addition, senior officials in various government agencies may sometimes have connections to Arabella. When Democrats are in power, there tends to be a transition of veterans from these groups to government roles, such as White House press secretary Jen Psaki, and White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who serve as a direct conduit from Arabella to Biden’s administration.

The Sixteen Thirty Fund, and thus Arabella, was involved with attempts to derail Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination, dropping an estimated $5 million in advertising and lobbying. Thwarted in that effort, it has since been involved with attempts to bully Breyer into retirement through its subsidiary, Demand Justice, driving around vehicles with signs stating “Breyer, retire. It’s time for a Black woman Supreme Court justice. There’s no time to waste.”

Paige Herwig, who handles the pivotal role of judicial nominees for Biden, is also an Arabella alumnus. Between Herwig, Psaki, and Klain, and the ever-flowing cash from Arabella’s coffers, it seems evident that this group has a heavy, if not commanding, influence over Biden, and will play the overwhelmingly dominant role in determining who his nominee will be.
