    Veteran Republican strategist Steve Schmidt announced Friday that he has resigned from the board of the Lincoln Project. The move comes after a week in which revelations surfaced that the organization, an influential critic of former President Trump, knew about allegations of sexual harassment involving one of its co-founders several months before acknowledging them publicly. Schmidt made the announcement in a lengthy post on Twitter in which he shared a personal account of sexual abuse from a Boy Scout medic, a yearslong fight with depression and an apology for posting the private messages of a former Lincoln Project official a...

    Megan McCain, co-host of The View and daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said her father “despised” Lincoln Project cofounders Steve Schmidt and John Weaver. McCain shared her remarks via Twitter, hours after Schmidt resigned from his seat on the Lincoln Project’s board of directors. “I’ve been very hesitant to comment but since my deceased father keeps getting invoked I will say this: John Weaver and Steve Schmidt were so despised by my Dad he made it a point to ban them from his funeral,” McCain tweeted. “Since 2008, no McCain would have spit on them if they...

    WASHINGTON — The founders of the Lincoln Project, a headline-grabbing new anti-Trump political action committee formed by GOP operatives who describe the president as “crook” and “huckster,” have their own checkered dealings with Russia and the tax man, documents obtained by the Post reveal. Since its inception last November — announced with a blistering New York Times op-ed — the brainchild of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and John Weaver has raked in more than $19.4 million dollars, according to FEC filings, and needled President Trump repeatedly with provocative TV ads. But the group — which the National Review...

    Financial records from The Lincoln Project – the anti-Trump group lauded by the establishment media – appear to reveal that the group funneled over $10,000,000 to enrich its own founders personally through their communications and consulting firms, The National Pulse can reveal.The news comes days after co-founder John Weaver admitted sending sexually inappropriate messages to young men.Launched in 2019 by a cohort of establishment, so-called “Republicans” dedicated to “defeating President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box,” the group has routinely funneled the millions it raises to its founders and advisors, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.Co-founder Reed Gallen’s Summit...

    Nazis! Lincoln Project carnival barker Steve Schmidt has a rather worn comparison that he pulls out on a frequent basis to make himself appear supposedly edgy. This already stale analogy he continues to use and reuse is comparing Trump supporters to fascists. The latest incarnation of Schmidt's already worn retread came on Monday on MSNBC's Deadline: White House. Since thousands of Trump supporters staged a rally in the nation's capital on Saturday, the frequent MSNBC guest just couldn't resist pulling out his old act yet again.

    It’s official: Longtime Republican strategist Steve Schmidt is a Democrat. He told “Battleground” podcast co-host David Plouffe Monday night that he’ll change his party affiliation. ... Schmidt has enjoyed a long career in Republican electoral politics. He ran day-to-day operations for John McCain’s failed presidential effort in 2008, served as communications director for Lamar Alexander’s failed presidential primary bid in 1999, directed communications for Matt Fong’s failed California Senate race in 1998, and that same year headed up Tim Leslie’s failed attempt to become Lt. Governor of California. In 1995, Schmidt managed the failed campaign of Will Scott for Kentucky...

    The president's dangerous accusations are baseless. And by encouraging them, conservatives are injecting cyanide into the country's polity. Today, more than a week since Election Day, GOP leaders across the party are still enabling President Donald Trump's baseless election fraud lies. And what that says, quite simply, is that we're in a lot of trouble as a country. Former Vice President Joe Biden has won the election. Every one of these Republican members of the House and the U.S. Senate are sophisticated politicians. They all have some fluency in vote counting, and they know Trump lost. The president's dangerous accusations...

    Lincoln Project founder Steve Schmidt on Thursday reacted to the “outrageous situation” that is President Donald Trump not conceding the 2020 presidential election results. The Trump campaign is currently engaged in legal battles in multiple states due to claims of voter fraud. During “MSNBC Live,” Schmidt said Trump’s refusal to concede the “fair election” immediately “is a coup of sorts.”

    (Video at Scource)..Schmidt said, “With regard to his polling numbers with women, they are well earned over three years. We have seen his belittlement of women. We have seen his misogamy, his condescension. He’s a credibly accused sexual assaulter in at least a dozen cases probably more. But I think you’re going to see deterioration with women voters because women voters are looking out at the totality of the situation the country finds itself in. The death, the suffering, the economic collapse, and devastation, and women are saying, ‘This guy did not protect my family.’.....“With regard to the Lincoln Project...

    During his twelve-year reign as FBI Director, Robert Mueller not only protected his criminal friends by silencing those who could expose their bad acts, he projected his friends’ crimes onto others in order to fraudulently appoint a Special Counsel. And the FISA court judge Reggie Walton — who was hacked by Obama officials John Brennan and James Clapper, according to whistleblower evidence — has been involved in more than one of these plots. There is no better Deep State tool for punishing your enemies than a fraudulent Special Counsel (who is not accountable to anyone) with an unlimited budget and...

    The latest report from the world’s climate scientists has made clear the size of the challenge if the world is to stay below the global warming limit hoped for in the Paris climate agreement. Unfortunately, with current trends we are likely to cross this threshold within the next two decades because we are already two-thirds of the way there. But how do we know what is driving these climate trends? It comes down to the same kind of detective work that typifies a crime scene investigation, only here we are dealing with a case that encompasses the whole world. Let...

Schmidt said “They’re in a lose-lose situation now. You would see a demoralized base. It would be a major defeat for the president. He will be seen to have backed down. The base will be angry. It will be enraged at Republican Senators who they think will have betrayed the president. But also if they force it through...
