Lincoln Project leaders were aware of sexual harassment allegations against co-founder John Weaver as early as March, sources told The 19th Monday.

Weaver has been accused of sexually harassing more than a dozen men, including some connected to the Lincoln Project.

The Lincoln Project announced Monday they would be releasing current and former workers from their nondisclosure agreements to discuss the “workplace environment.”

Multiple individuals began coming forward to discuss the accusations against Weaver and the timeline in which they occurred.

The individuals claim that Lincoln Project co-founders were aware of the accusations against Weaver much earlier than they had alleged.

Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt previously said that he had not known of Weaver’s behavior until last month. However, the individuals who came forward provided a timeline that contradict Schmidt’s claim. They allege that Schmidt knew months earlier than June 2020.

Several said Sarah Lenti, managing partner of The Lincoln Project and previous executive director, knew about the allegations against Weaver as early as May 2020. Lenti confirmed that some of the group’s co-founders knew about the allegations as early as March 2020.

Schmidt resigned abruptly from the Lincoln Project’s board Friday after taking responsibility for publishing — and then reportedly quickly deleted — private conversations between 19th News correspondent Amanda Becker and co-founder Jennifer Horn on Twitter.

Horn asked the Lincoln Project to release its workers from their nondisclosure agreements and resigned earlier this month after learning the full extent of the allegations against Weaver.

The Lincoln Project has hired the law firm Paul Hastings to conduct a “comprehensive review of our operations and culture.”

The Lincoln Project released a statement Monday saying they will take all necessary action to correct any issues or deficiencies that are identified by the Paul Hastings law firm.

However, Becker uncovered that several lawyers at Paul Hastings law firm contributed thousands of dollars to the Lincoln Project during the 2020 election cycle.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
