In laughable fashion, after a review of the John Weaver sex scandal, The Lincoln Project declares itself innocent.

You may have noticed over the past 6 months that the infamous anti-Trump political group The Lincoln Project has not been as big of a fixture in the media. In January, news broke that co-founder and senior partner John Weaver had been engaged in an ongoing effort of grooming underage males for sexual relationships. Nearly two dozen individuals have come forward to show that, over the years, Weaver had been in contact with them and used the lure of jobs and other promised perks in exchange for sexual favors.  

Since that time, the money-Hoovering organization has endured other scandals, seen the flight of many prominent members, and watched as its sphere of influence and stream of donations shriveled.

Now the group comes forward to claim that it has been cleared of culpability on the matter of Weaver’s predations. In a statement released by two members, The Lincoln Project declares that, after a four-month investigation, there has been no evidence found that major players in the organization were aware of Weaver’s behavior before it hit the news. Here is the statement declaring an absence of culpability.

Next, one of the biggest problems is this investigation was undertaken in February and is claimed to have been conducted by an “independent” law firm, named Paul Hastings LLP. The first sign of trouble here is that no fewer than five members of the firm, including one of its managing partners, were donors to The Lincoln Project. There is no way this could be considered a serious probe into the matter with that kind of
