Anti-Trump Lincoln Project members pocketed large consulting fees, expensed tens of millions: report

The Associated Press did a deep dive into the anti-Trump Super PAC The Lincoln Project and discovered that out of the $90 million it raised only a third of the money was used for direct advertisements against former President Donald Trump on cable and television.

The analysis conducted by Kantar/CMAG tens of millions went to exorbitant consulting fees and expenses by those working with the now-disgraced group, whose co-founder John Weaver, has now been removed after inappropriate sexual behavior was exposed.

Fox News recently reported that Weaver went on medical leave due to a cardiac episode. He did so after the organization became aware of a New York Post story looking into his inappropriate online behavior with dozens of men, promising jobs for sexual favors. Weaver is married with children.

Byron York, a columnist for The Washington Examiner, noted that some of the other co-founders of the group who were in financial straits may have some explaining to do.

The Tweet was in response to George Conway’s statement on Twitter that he “never received anything of value from the Lincoln Project, save for one very nice $169 Rode-NT-USB condenser microphone, which Ron Steslow kindly provided to me for podcasting.”

In my opinion, this group of never-Trump political hacks has done nothing but divide the nation and the Republican Party. The forensic analysis is revealing of the kind of corruption the Washington D.C. swamp didn’t want the American people to see or know.

Trump was the obstacle they needed to get rid of so they could continue to hide their corrupt behavior from the rest of the nation. What you are seeing with The Lincoln Project only scratches the surface.

Meta to reinstate Trump’s Facebook, Instagram ‘in coming weeks’

Meta’s president of Global Affairs Nick Clegg announced former President Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts will be reinstated “in coming weeks” after a more than two-year suspension.

“Our determination is that the risk [to public safety] has sufficiently receded,” Meta Clegg said in a blog post. “As such, we will be reinstating Mr. Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts in the coming weeks. However, we are doing so with new guardrails in place to deter repeat offenses.”

Twitter restored Trump’s account in November following its takeover by billionaire Elon Musk, but the former president has not yet resumed tweeting. Therefore it is unclear if he will use any of his former social media platforms, or instead remain on his own social media platform, Truth Social.

Clegg said “We just do not want — if he is to return to our services — for him to do what he did on January 6, which is to use our services to delegitimize the 2024 election, much as he sought to discredit the 2020 election.”

New “guardrails” include new policies around restricting accounts by public figures during civil unrest. Under those policies, Meta can decide to restrict the account of a public figure that violates its community standards for a time ranging from one month to two years.

“If he now posts further violating content, that content will be removed, of course, and he could be suspended for between one month and two years, depending on the severity of the violation,” Clegg said.

Posts will also be able to be limited on distribution without removing them or temporarily restricting access to its advertising tools. “Oblique references to QAnon content, for instance … is the kind of material that — even if it’s done obliquely, and doesn’t violate our community standards — we would seek to restrict the distribution of the content and/or restrict his ability to advertise,” added Clegg.
