Never-Trump Project Lincoln Co-Founder Had Contract With Russian Government

“Update (1217ET): According to Politico, Weaver backed out of his contract with the Russian government after it was exposed in May.

In short; he intended to take money from Russia after spending four years disparaging President Trump as a Russian stooge, only to back out of his own deal with a Kremlin-owned entity after he was called out on it.

Weaver had 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 reported by Politico.

It seems like Trump’s enemies over at Project Lincoln have some more explaining to do.
