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.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence

In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.

“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.

The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
