1. I think it's time to do another thread on this history of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.
2. The founder of the Ethics and Public Policy Center was Ernest Lefever who was rejected for a Reagan administration nomination in 1981 because of testimony of 2 of his brothers, one who said he was incompetent, the other who said he was a racist.
3. From 1996 to 2001, the President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center was Elliott Abrams, who had perviously been convicted for lying to Congress during the Iran/Contra scandal.
4. Abrams, former President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, also played a key role in helping cover the El Mozote massacre in El Savador in 1981, which saw death squads kill 800 civilians.
5. The current president of the Ethics and Policy Center is of course Ed Whelan, recently seen trying to smear a classmate of Brett Kavanaugh as the true attempted rapist.
