    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...

    Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver has stepped down from the anti-Trump super-PAC after acknowledging reports that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charges messages to dozens of young men. Some two dozen men have claimed Weaver dangled job opportunities while propositioning them for sex, including one who claimed he had consensual intercourse with the longtime GOP operative in a hotel, but never got a gig out of it, the American Conservative reported. Others said Weaver slid into their direct messages on Twitter, referred to them as “my boy,” complimented their hair or asked about their genitals.

    Twitter said a "bug" prevented users from searching for the Lincoln Project on the platform, after one of the organization's founders admitted to sending "inappropriate" messages to multiple men. A Twitter spokesperson told the Daily Caller that "this was a bug that was fixed yesterday." Twitter did not address why the bug affected searches while the conservative, anti-Trump organization’s co-founder was facing allegations of misconduct.

    Lincoln Project founder John Weaver partially admitted to allegations of sexual misconduct on Friday, releasing a statement in which he admitted to his own homosexuality and apologized for inappropriate sexual conversations with college aged-men in the ranges of 19 to 26. Weaver, an ex-Republican neocon and former John McCain and John Kasich operative, had been purged from reference on the Lincoln Project’s website after populist commentator Ryan Girdusky revealed that at least ten young men had been sexually solicited by Weaver. Weaver had promised the young men employment in politics in return for gay sex, which one victim alleges never...

    John Weaver, a veteran Republican operative who co-founded the Lincoln Project, declared in a statement to Axios on Friday that he sent “inappropriate,” sexually charged messages to multiple men. “To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry. They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you,” Weaver said. “The truth is that I'm gay,” he added. “And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led...

    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...

    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.

    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.”

    This video shows the Lincoln Project’s Steve Schmidt, on MSNBC, saying that the fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during the debate with vice president candidate, Kamala Harris, is a "sign historically of sin" and the "mark of the devil.” The MSNBC host laughed at this and sort of asked if he was serious, because you know, for the record and all. You know it's bad when even the MSNBC host is laughing at your statement.

    Washington D.C. has always been a club, with decorum and strict membership rules. Most of us are not in this club and would have no desire to join if offered membership based on our morals, ethics, and a desire to look at ourselves in the mirror every day without being disgusted. George Carlin said it best, “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it.” The club goes by many names – deep state, swamp, uniparty – and the club charter is quite clear, outlined ironically by someone not in the club, blackballed by the membership committee. President Trump, before...

    s their preferred candidate crashes in national polls and the race tightens to a dead heat in Joe Biden’s must-win states, NeverTrump “conservatives” are once again taking their marching orders from Democrats. The death, destruction, and mayhem besieging Democratic-run cities across the country, NeverTrump dutifully recites, is all Donald Trump’s fault. Team Biden crafted the inane talking points to deflect concerns that the violence in cities such as Portland and Kenosha rapidly was backfiring on Democrats; scenes of angry mobs attacking Trump supporters, including Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and his wife, leaving the White House late Thursday night after the...

    On Tuesday night, during a montage of women who have served in both the Trump administration and campaigns, the anti-Trump phony conservative Lincoln Project tweeted that “Kayleigh McEnany is the first ghoul to serve as Press Secretary.” They deleted it only a minute later. This happened just the day after the group deleted another tweet claiming that an RNC audience member yelled “monkey” in reference to former President Barack Obama, which would’ve been an obvious racial slur. Even though the audio clearly said “spygate,” the phony “principled conservatives” still accused President Trump of enjoying the non-existent insult. While claiming to...

    The Lincoln Project falsely claimed on Monday that a Trump supporter called former President Barack Obama a "monkey." In a since-deleted tweet, Project Lincoln posted a video of President Donald Trump's re-nomination speech on the first day of the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Trump stated that the Democrats are trying to steal the presidential election again, but this time with universal mail-in voting which the GOP claims is a liability for voter fraud. The Left's vote-by-mail campaign was preceded by spying in the 2016 race. Trump noted that Obama and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden were among...

    Steve Schmidt, one of the co-founders of anti-Trump political action group the Lincoln Project, met with then-candidate Donald Trump and tried to join his campaign during a 2016 Manhattan meeting, sources with knowledge of the conversation told The Post. But the Republican operative — best known for his work on John McCain’s failed presidential bid before becoming one of the faces of the “Never Trump” movement — failed to get the gig because Trump thought he was a “total idiot,” one of the sources said. Ten days after Schmidt’s March 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, the campaign hired Paul Manafort...
