NY Post: Lincoln Project Founders Have Ties to Russia, Massive Tax Problems

Conservative, Inc. finally finds a hill to die on: Finding new marks to grift now that the old ones have clamped shut their wallets.


The founders of the Lincoln Project, a headline-grabbing anti-Trump political action committee formed by GOP operatives who describe the president as a "crook" and "huckster," have their own checkered dealings with Russia and the tax man, documents obtained by The Post reveal.

...

Co-founder Weaver, a political consultant known for his work on John McCain's and John Kasich's presidential campaigns, registered as a Russian foreign agent for uranium conglomerate TENEX in a six-figure deal last year, filings with the Department of Justice show.

TENEX’s parent company is Rosatom, a Russian state-owned corporation that also owns Uranium One--— the company that paid Bill Clinton $500,000 in speaking fees and millions to the Clinton Foundation after then-President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed off on the controversial merger in 2010.


...

According to IRS filings exclusively obtained by The Post, the Republican operative -- who has also repeatedly called Trump a "tax fraud" and a "tax crook" on Twitter -- also has an outstanding $313,655 federal tax lien against his Austin, Texas, home.

This March, an Austin shopping mall also filed a lawsuit against the children's clothing store that Weaver and his wife own, according to court documents obtained by The Post, just months after Weaver mocked the president's own string of failed businesses.

Weaver's fellow Lincoln Project founder Wilson also has an interesting financial past. According to IRS documents, the GOP strategist has an outstanding $389,420 federal tax lien against his Tallahassee, Florida, home, and his bank moved to foreclose on the property in 2016.
