It was not until conservative activist Ryan James Girdusky blew the lid in a bombshell exposé that the Lincoln Project was forced to play dumb, pretending as though it had no idea that Weaver was grooming young boys to service him while baiting them with false promises of exciting job opportunities.
"John Weaver led a secret life that was built on a foundation of deception at every level," the Lincoln Project said in a Jan. 31 statement. "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."
"We are disgusted and outraged that someone in a position of power and trust would use it for these means," the anti-Trump group added.
The statement goes on to claim that nobody at the Lincoln Project had any clue about Weaver's perversions.
"The totality of his deceptions are beyond anything any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it," further reads the statement.
"Like so many, we have been betrayed and deceived by John Weaver. We are grateful beyond words that at no time was John Weaver in the physical presence of any member of The Lincoln Project."
The only problem with this statement is that it is not true. As revealed by Girdusky, many members of the Lincoln Project were fully aware of what Weaver was up to because his victims tried to approach them about it, only to be ignored.
Calling the official statement from the Lincoln Project "an absolute lie," Girdusky says the truth was out there the entire time he was crafting his story. Not only did the Lincoln Project ignore it, but so did corporate media co-conspirators like The Daily Beast's Molly Jong-Fast, who did her part to keep it all under wraps.
Jong-Fast knew at least as far back as early summer 2020 that Girdusky had the goods on Weaver and was working to bring it all to light. She responded by trying to bury the story.
Girdusky tweeted the following about how it all went down:
It took until Jan. 15 for Weaver himself to finally come clean about the accusations, admitting that he did, in fact, send inappropriate messages to young boys luring them to engage in sexual activity with him.
"The truth is that I'm gay," Weaver now claims. "And that I have a wife and two kids who I love. My inability to reconcile those two truths has led to this agonizing place."
"To the men I made uncomfortable through my messages that I viewed as consensual mutual conversations at the time: I am truly sorry," Weaver added in a statement to Axios. "They were inappropriate and it was because of my failings that this discomfort was brought on you."
Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt issued his own statement claiming ignorance about the matter. He says there was "no awareness or insinuations of any type of inappropriate behavior" from Weaver "when we became aware of the chatter at the time."
Many are wondering why the corporate media failed to pursue any of this, even as it engaged in witch hunt after witch hunt against the Trump administration.
"Journalists spread the fake Trump dossier in 2016, but when actual young victims of the Lincoln Project reached out in 2020, they covered it up and kept promoting the Lincoln Project," wrote one Breitbart News commenter. "All you need to know about these cancerous people."
