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.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
