(TargetLiberty.org) – The Lincoln Project, a RINO-dominated “Never Trump” political action committee, ran into controversy in January after founding member John Weaver was accused of ongoing sexual misconduct against underage boys. On February 15, the PAC announced it had hired a law firm to investigate Weaver’s behavior and create a “positive, diverse, and inclusive workplace environment.” But the investigation’s credibility is already in tatters, according to new reports.
From @CNBC: Amid growing scandal, some Lincoln Project donors are considering cutting off donations. But they won't say so publicly because they're afraid of retribution by the Lincoln Project. https://t.co/VAiGGZ7IeD pic.twitter.com/xx3BNv9FfM

On February 16, less than 24 hours after the Lincoln Project announced the investigation, the Washington Free Beacon reported that the law firm hired by the Lincoln Project is one of the Project’s major donors. At least five partners at the Los Angeles-based firm, Paul Hastings, have donated to the Lincoln Project, including several thousand to support its anti-Trump campaign in the 2020 election.
Senior staffers at the PAC insist they knew nothing about Weaver’s behavior until last month – but according to an article from the 19th News, some of the executives may have known about it as early as March 2020.
