The dishonesty is appalling. You are a right wing smear merchant. 1. there are many men Weaver is alleged to have harassed. Most all of the harassment activity predated the Lincoln Project, as in before it existed. No person EVER filed a complaint against Weaver with
@ProjectLincoln. Your attack is guilt by association crap. I accused you of inciting violence. You are. Against me and my kids. You are supposed to be a journalist. You have called me a Pedophile enabler absent any facts, evidence. Ect…. Apparently, you feel license to slander
me like this because the NYT reported Weaver had email exchanges with a 14 year old boy when he worked for Kasich in 2015, 4 years before the @ProjectLincoln existed. You know full well that “Pedophile Conspiracy” attacks are core to Q ANON dogma. You know about the violence
around Q Anon and know specifically how the pedophile conspiracy smear had incited violence. When you make your false attack on me it’s with premeditation of purpose to drop your dollop of poison into the Autocratic propaganda network. I don’t know what is in your heart other
Than I know you are indifferent at best and at worst rooting to trigger violence against me by baiting crazy people in a moment where the whiff of political violence and menace is all around us. Again, I can name all of Andrew Cuomo and Donald Trump’s accusers. Why can’t you name
the people who are alleged to have been harassed by Weaver at the Lincoln Project who told someone about it, who then failed to act to protect them? There are no news reports at all that suggest Weaver EVER sent a sexually explicit email to a minor. Every single person, all
21 of them, who have made a Public allegation against Weaver for his outlandish behavior were ADULT men. What is your factual basis for smearing me or anyone associated with @ProjectLincoln as a pedophile enabler? Finally, a reputable law firm conducted an independent
investigation of the entire matter and made clear that no person at @ProjectLincoln had any knowledge of Weaver having contact with a minor. Second, there was no finding of any actionable sexual harassment complaints. Weaver, as it turns out was sending inappropriate emails to
Adult interns. Those individuals made clear they did not report Weavers harrasment to any person in their chain of command which would have ended with Sarah Lenti and @reedgalen. Again, what is your factual basis to say what you are saying other than you hate me and are mad
@ProjectLincoln played an important role in defeating Trump? Put up or shut up.

I’d like to share some observations about America and Covid after a dinner in Paris on my first International business trip since the Pandemic began. Tragically, Discussing Covid in America is primarily a political discussion. It is certainly not a
medical one. Overwhelmingly, that reality is the fault of three people. Trump, Murdoch and Zuckerberg. Trump is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans because of his insanity, narcissism, incompetence, malice and selfishness. Murdoch monetized
the insanity by stepping on the gas and building a community of anger fueled by conspiracy, rage, hate, racial animus, nativism, jingoism, misinformation, venal stupidity and contempt for American ideals of equality, fairness, justice and democracy. Zuckerberg built a mass

The Twitter Bio for @JenniferJJacobs reads, “reporting what I know, not what I think” First, there are no “Some critics.” Zero. It’s made up. Second, @VP is speaking idiomatic English and her pronunciation is a typical use. Third, this trip was largely about French domestic
politics. It was payback for the Submarine fiasco, which came at an unfortunate time, given Macron is running against two right wing nationalists, Le Pen and Zemmour. Both are neo fascists that fit comfortably within the global autocratic movement that includes Trump,
Bolsonaro, Orban, ect… that is hostile to democracy, pluralism, NATO, EU and other multilateral institutions. @VP had a great trip in France. The American press traveling with her informed the American people it was “gaffe free” as if they were judging a dance competition.

No @Cam_Cawthorne that isn’t what I’m saying. BTW, I was riding up Roger Ailes secret elevator, you know the one near his private entrance, the one he used to bring the women up, a long time ago for insane secret meetings. Are you incriminated by Ailes? O Reilly? There was an
investigation conducted by Hastings. It found no evidence of any actionable sexual harassment complaint being made against Weaver. When there was an investigation at Fox what was the finding? Weavers conduct was deplorable but NO person ever made a complaint. I only dispute one
point of fact and one characterization from the NY MAG story on this matter, including my quotes all of which are accurate. I’ll just lay it out for you and @JayCaruso an unfriendly Murdoch/Anschutz jury. The NY Mag story states the following

You are extremely dishonest. More than 80 percent of monies raised by the Lincoln Project went to spending on voter contact. You should read the @costareports and @realBobWoodward book to understand the degree to which @ProjectLincoln destabilized Trump which is why you are angry
During my political career I have always attempted to run organizations with under 20 percent of gross receipts. It is not easy to do. The Trump campaign is a nine figure grift and it ran out of money. I’m curious why you haven’t ever written about that. Lol.
The @ProjectLincoln issued a report detailing its spending that is available online. Please compare the disclosures made beyond any legal requirements and compare them to any other SuperPac. There is nothing to hide and the donor money was well spent in campaign 20

.@JayCaruso I asked you a question hours ago. What are the names of the men who made complaints to @ProjectLincoln? Why can’t you name them.? Why can’t you name the people who were ignored? You know why? Because it’s a smear and it’s all BS. I can name the people who made
Complaints against Trump. Why can’t you do it against @ProjectLincoln? I can name the women that made complaints about Andrew Cuomo. Why can’t you do this simple thing? Are you a journalist? For months you have made ad hominem attacks alleging a coverup. What are your facts?
Names, dates, places, people? What does your General Counsel think about that? What about your superiors? How about your colleagues?

There are three profoundly important elections that will take place in 22. The American Media spends 99.9 percent of its energy focused on the US midterms. The two others are the French and Brazilian Presidential elections. This American autocratic movement is far from alone.
In fact, it is deeply connected to a global movement with which it coordinates. @TuckerCarlson went to Budapest and propagandized for an anti Semitic fascist, Viktor Orban. @Mike_Pence happily went to Budapest to smile on stage with European fascists and nationalists and CPAC
has announced it will be holding its convention there as well. @BarackObama delivered a clear, compelling, realistic and honest account of the challenges around dealing with Climate change in Scotland last week. Here is another truth. Brazil is essentially the Earth’s lungs.
