Well Will You Look At That: Co-Founder Of Never Trump Super PAC Had To Register As A Foreign Agent For Russia
Things over at the never-Trump Lincoln Project super PAC are not going well. This week they had to fire their head video editor that was making all the ads liberals loved and frontman Rick Wilson got his turncoat butt handed to him by liberal comedian Stephen Colbert. Now it’s been exposed that co-founder of the group John Weaver had to register as a foreign agent for Russia.
Filmmaker Mike Cernovich discovered that Wilson’s Project Lincoln co-founder, John Weaver had a contract with the Russian government because he was a consultant to JSC Techsnabexport – known as TENEX – which is owned Rosatom (think Uranium One) that was founded by Putin and run by the government.
Weaver is a rhino and was the failed leader behind former Sen. John McCain’s 2000 and 2008 presidential campaign attempts and John Kasich’s 2016 presidential campaign (noticing a trend?).

Weaver’s six-month contract with TENEX in 2019 was worth over $350,000 according to documents obtained from the Justice Department.
On Monday, John Solomon reported that Biden’s energy adviser, Amos Hochstein, also consulted for TENEX and “assisted personally” in “Russia’s attempts to corner the global uranium market.”
Here we have two men that want Biden to become president that both had direct dealings with the Russian government and one had to register as a foreign agent.
Weaver also has a history of claiming President Trump is a foreign agent working for Putin…
Below is a thread that Weaver posting attacking President Trump that he has now deleted after being exposed at having to register as a foreign agent.

Politico has discovered that Weaver ended his contract with the Russian government after he was exposed in May 2019.
Weaver — a longtime Republican operative who continued advising Kasich after 2016 and is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump — registered as a foreign agent after signing a contract last month to lobby on behalf of Tenam Corp., a subsidiary of Rosatom, the Russian state-owned nuclear energy company.
He planned to lobby Congress and the Trump administration on “sanctions or other restrictions in the area of atomic (nuclear) energy, trade or cooperation involving in any way the Russian Federation,” according to a disclosure filing.
Liberals for the most part always end up being what they accuse you of.
