The Lincoln Project was a “conservative” group dedicated to ousting President Donald Trump.
Yeah, they were pretty excited to see Trump leave Washington. But it really wasn’t thanks to them.
The group is hardly popular among Republicans nationwide. It enjoys the support of “moderates” who apparently care more about the D.C. swamp than everyday folks.
But, big surprise, a number of its leaders was hit with a blizzard of scandals. And now, they’re taking their biggest hit yet.
From Fox News:
Lincoln Project co-founder George Conway said Tuesday that the anti-Trump group he helped launch should be disbanded…
“It’s a shame, and we shouldn’t forget the hard work of so many people and the positive things the organization did, but yes, I think this is right,” Conway wrote…
After the Weaver allegations surfaced last month, Conway told MSNBC that he had no prior knowledge and claimed he didn’t know his former colleague very well.
Why It’s Important:
Some ugly scandals have come out surrounding the Lincoln Project’s co-founder John Weaver. Apparently, things got worse when it was revealed that the leaders of the group knew about this stuff last March, but did nothing.
It seems they might have tried to cover it all up, which is a big no-no.
Now, the other co-founder of the group, George Conway, has called for the group to just be shut down.
Conway left the group back in August, so he might have known about the same scandals as everyone else. Why didn’t he speak up at the time? He claims he never knew about what Weaver was doing.
He said he didn’t know the man very well—yet he formed a political group with him?
Does anyone else smell a rat?
Perhaps Conway is trying to cover up his own traces by calling for the group to disband. If they just shut down now, maybe the heat will pass by and things will calm down.
But the longer the group keeps going, perhaps more scandals will come out.
And to think, this group was created to undermine a Republican president and destroy his chances at re-election. What could have gone wrong?
Remember the old Trump curse? Yeah, it looks like that thing is alive and well.
- Co-founder of the Lincoln Project, George Conway, called for the group to be shut down.
