Lincoln Project donors include Romney’s Bain Capital and China-linked companies

Feb 13, 2021

In the wake of several scandals rocking the infamous, and now failing, Lincoln Project, reports are surfacing of the organizations that contributed major donations to the group. And those that donated are facing backlash.

The National Pulse reports that the major donors show a list of left-leaning groups, despite the group’s claims that it represents a disenfranchised Republican base.

Hollywood figures, hedge fund managers, Mitt Romney’s firm Bain Capital, and other questionable sources make up the group’s largest donors.

“The list also includes Michael Moritz, a partner at the venture capital firm Sequoia, who donated a sizable sum in three donations in May, June, and July of 2020: one worth $50,000 and two worth $25,000,” the Pulse reports.

The news comes after reports broke that the FBI is investigating allegations against Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver.

Meghan McCain, the co-host of the The View and daughter of former U.S. Senator John McCain, said in a Tweet that “John Weaver and Steve Schmidt were so despised by my Dad he made it a point to ban them from his funeral.”

“Since 2008, no McCain would have spit on them if they were on fire,” she added.

Weaver was accused by at least 21 men last week for sending inappropriate messages and in some instances offering political and employment opportunities for sexual favors.

“John Weaver led a secret life that was built on a foundation of deception at every level,” the prominent never-Trump organization said in a statement last week. “He is a predator, a liar, and an abuser. We extend our deepest sympathies to those who were targeted by his deplorable and predatory behavior.”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
