One of the co-founders of anti-Trump “The Lincoln Project”, John Douglas Weaver (The Network Companies, LLC), filed a FARA (Foreign Agent) form that he was a lobbyist for a subsidiary of Russian Government owned Rosatom on May 10, 2019. It remains in the FARA database, and, it’s really true. Weaver was to be paid over half a million dollars. He was caught by May 16, 2019. Politico, the Washington Examiner, and others, took notice. On May 17, 2019 he filed an amendment claiming that he had reconsidered and that he had not taken the upfront money. But, did anyone check? If he decided not to lobby, then why did he submit another amendment on May 28, 2019, changing the name from “JSC Techsnabexport to JSC Techsnabexport through TENEX-USA”. Why would he do that if he had canceled the contract? Regardless, what matters is that he was willing to lobby on behalf of an entity owned by the Russian government.
Clearly “The Lincoln Project” co-founder, John Douglas Weaver, didn’t take Russiagate seriously. Did the other founders of “The Lincoln Project”? Is it just that John Douglas Weaver is a fraud? Or was Trump collusion with Russia really a hoax? A bipartisan US Senate Intel report warned that Russia amplified BLM in 2016, and yet no one mentioned this during the BLM protest-riots. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2020/09/24/bipartisan-us-senate-intel-report-warned-that-russian-operatives-used-blm-in-2016-information-warfare-campaign/
The Washington Examiner pointed out that Weaver’s “alignment with the Russian-owned utility turned heads due to his previous criticisms of Trump on a range of issues, including alleged coziness with Moscow… Weaver repeatedly called for the passage of “sanctions on Putin” in January 2017.” https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/john-mccain-aligned-consultant-drops-foreign-agent-contract-to-fight-russia-sanctions
Did Russia provide the seed money, then, for “The Lincoln Project”? “The Lincoln Project” has gotten at least one million dollars from the Getty Family, who are a major cog in the San Francisco political machine, which has brought us Nancy Pelosi, and Kamala Harris.
Poor Abe Lincoln. Someone needs to write a book about the uses and abuses of Lincoln. Can his heirs sue?
Russiagate was supposed to be about national security, and, hence, above and beyond, whether or not people like Trump or his policies.
“The Lincoln Project” published a video called “Fellow Traveler” on July 1, 2020, alleging that Putin endorsed Trump. On Monday, a “New Lincoln Project Video Shows Cartoon Trump Bowing to Vladimir Putin” October 26, 2020, by Matthew Impelli, Newsweek: https://archive.vn/BhVfS
“Anti-Trump Lincoln Project Caught Spreading Iran Disinformation” By Rick Moran, Oct 22, 2020 11:17 AM ET

Interviews with John Weaver seem to support the suspicion that the opposition to Trump had nothing to do with Russia and a lot to do with Trump’s attempts to restrict immigration. In this interview, John Weaver complains about the “comprehensive immigration reform”, aka amnesty bill, not being passed, etc: https://youtu.be/xfQCcqH9H6c So, his opposition to Trump was never about Russia? His words imply that, and his action of signing up as a lobbyist for Russia indicate that he wasn’t concerned about Russia, after all. NBC news wasn’t paying him enough? Here Weaver is, again, complaining about Trump’s immigration stance, in February 2019 — a few months before he signed on as a Russian Foreign Agent! “John Weaver: Trump’s Bland SOTU Was Aimed At 2020 Voters, Not Congress”.

“The Lincoln Project is an American political action committee formed in late 2019 by a number of former Republicans”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lincoln_Project
They’ve raised $60 million, according to 60 Minutes. From whom?
Did this money from Russia act as seed money for the Lincoln Project? From the FARA registration:
“Within five (5) business days after Tenam’s receipt of the Proof of Registration, if required, Tenam shall make an advance payment to Consultant for the Services in the amount of US $250,000.00. No later than thirty (30) days after making the aforementioned $250,000 payment, Tenam shall make an additional advance payment to Consultant for the Services in the amount of US $100,000. Such advance payments totaling US $350,000 shall be deemed to include all Consultant’s remuneration for the Services to be rendered through October 31, 2019.“ Link: https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Exhibit-AB-20190510-1.pdf
John Douglas Weaver stated:
“I am being engaged to render the provision of government strategies, advice, and lobbying directed toward the U.S. Congress and the Administration, and the U.S. nuclear energy industry on behalf of Tenam regarding the business of Tenam and its parent company JSC Techsnabexport, including, without limitation, any sanctions or other restrictions in the area of atomic (nuclear) energy, trade or cooperation involving in any way the Russian Federation.
The term of this engagement is from April 29, 2019 to December 31, 2020, unless mutually agreed otherwise in a writing signed by both Parties or terminated earlier as stipulated in the Agreement.”
Received by NSD/FARA Registration Unit 05/10/2019 12:59:02 PM Link: https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Exhibit-AB-20190510-1.pdf See too: https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Short-Form-20190510-2.pdf And: https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Exhibit-C-20190510-1.pdf
In the May 17, 2019 filing, he claims he wasn’t paid (but he had time to be paid, under the contract): “After further consideration, it was determined that representing the client was not in the best interests of the registrant. Notice of termination of the consulting agreement was sent to the client’s counsel, and was accepted. No payment was made, as the agreement was terminated prior to rendering any services or lobby activities, and before any compensation was due. Link- https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Amendment-20190517-1.pdf
But, then, on May 28, 2019, he made an amendment to change the name of the entity that he filed over. Does that mean that he continued to represent it, but under the different name? If he wasn’t going to represent them anymore, then why would he file another amendment?: “Amend name of the foreign principal from JSC Techsnabexport to JSC Techsnabexport through TENEX-USA.” Link: https://efile.fara.gov/docs/6677-Amendment-20190528-2.pdf
May 16 2019 in the Washington Examiner:
“Weaver’s original alignment with the Russian-owned utility turned heads due to his previous criticisms of Trump on a range of issues, including alleged coziness with Moscow. In January 2019, he tweeted, “Of course Trump ended the sanctions on Deripaksa [a Russian business-owner and oligarch]. You think Putin invested all of that just for chaos?” And in December 2018, he attacked Trump for “releasing sanctions on Putin’s best oligarch friend.” Weaver repeatedly called for the passage of “sanctions on Putin” in January 2017.” https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/john-mccain-aligned-consultant-drops-foreign-agent-contract-to-fight-russia-sanctions
At around 5 minutes Weaver turns the truth on its head. What a con-man Weaver is, and a smooth liar. We should be the ones asking what to do when we find out that he was lying about being concerned about Russia. See: “Inside the Lincoln Project’s campaign against President Trump” https://youtu.be/s95VhNZmigw He worked for McCain and it raises the question of if McCain actually was and remained the annoying jerk that we originally thought he was, before he was supposedly taking the side against Trump-Russia. It is possible that Russia supported Trump, but now changed its mind. But, this is evidence that maybe Trump-Russia collusion was a hoax cooked up by Weaver, and others, such as McCain. If so, the hoax has outlived McCain.
There is, however, a proven national security threat, that you can easily verify; and that is Kamala Harris and her maternal uncle: “Kamala Harris’ Uncle Brags About India Deceiving the CIA with Nuclear Weapons Tests; Kamala Deceives Biden About Her Uncle’s Advisory Role to India’s Ministry of Defence” https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2020/09/26/kamala-harris-uncle-brags-about-india-deceiving-the-cia-with-nuclear-weapons-tests-kamala-deceives-biden-about-her-uncles-advisory-role-to-indias-ministry-of-defence/
Gordon Getty is one of the big Lincoln Project donors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lincoln_Project https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Getty He has family connections to Gavin Newsom, who, like Kamala Harris, was given an appointment by/mentored by Willie Brown. Willie Brown was apparently close to the Gettys. Through Willie Brown, Kamala Harris was introduced to the Gettys and reportedly became a friend of Vanessa Getty. Gavin is listed as a friend of Hunter Biden in the Hunter Biden emails, though we can’t find any info on the why or how.
