WASHINGTON — Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chairman Congressman Keith Ellison said Wednesday that members of the Trump administration met with “Russian spies and stuff,” without providing any evidence to support his claim.
Ellison was riffing on the livestream “Democrats Live,” hosted by the DNC, with Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee. The two lawmakers were going back and forth with insults for Republicans and Trump supporters toward the end of the interminable 47-minute broadcast.
Ellison specifically smeared former national security adviser General Flynn, current White House adviser Stephen Miller, and recently departed White House employee Sebastian Gorkey. Miller has never even been accused of having had any contact with the Russians.
“If you believe that, uh, what, Flynn, Miller, Gorkey, all these people who have been in meetings with, you know, Russian spies and stuff and ambassadors don’t have to come to Congress and explain exactly what they said, when they said it, and why they didn’t disclose it, maybe you’re on the other side,” Ellison said (44:50 Mark In This Video).
“Yeah,” Kildee agreed.
“If you believe that rich people don’t have enough money but that poor people have too much money, maybe you’re on the other side,” Ellison said.
Democratic and neocon Republican lawmakers have been citing the dormant Twitter account for Guccifer 2.0 as a suspected Russian agent who allegedly carried out a hack on DNC servers before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in 2016. Guccifer 2.0 took credit for hacking the DNC. But as Big League Politics reported, an expert ex-hacker said that Guccifer 2.0 planted fake Russian fingerprints on his/her account and that it would have been technically impossible for him/her to have carried out any kind of hack on the DNC as he/she described it.
Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex
Well this isn’t a good look.
John Weaver, political consultant and co-founder of The Lincoln Project, has been accused of being a sexual predator who targeted young men.
Conservative author and political commentator Ryan Girdusky piqued curiosity and set off widespread speculation after tweeting late Saturday afternoon that “one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project [offered] jobs to young men in exchange for sex,” adding that “his wife is probably interested” to hear about the allegations.
Maybe I should start talking about one of the founding members of the Lincoln Project offering jobs to young men in exchange for sex… his wife is probably interested https://t.co/vAtUS9aPPl

Although Girdusky did not post screenshots of Weaver’s predatory actions himself, saying he “worked with journalists and reached out to victims asking for them to speak up because it was their story, not mine,” several others spoke up about what they experienced and heard.
Twitter user @JoshPri68522288 was one of the first to speak up, tweeting that “I know who did it, because they did it to me. It was John Weaver.”
@_liberalproject also said that “Weaver used to follow me when I used my real name on here. Out of the blue he DM’d being pushy with personal questions and trying to flirt with me. After I didn’t go along with it, he unfollowed me and never DM’d me since.”

News of the impending allegations was also retweeted by Donald Trump Jr.
The longest Twitter thread on the accusations came from journalist Scott Stedman, who started a Twitter thread that begins as follows: “I don’t want to feed into Don Jr’s nonsense but I do want to tell a story. I followed John Weaver when I started my Twitter account. We exchanged messages, I sent him my stories, chatted about Russia, etc. He wrote a blurb for my book. He offered me some sort of “joint venture” which I wasn’t interested in, so I didn’t respond to his calls.”
Stedman continues: “One day, he DM’d me and said he had ‘advice’. He then proceeded to tell me how ‘hot’ I looked and commented on my profile picture and my hair. He started calling me ‘my boy’. I found it deeply uncomfortable.”
“What he said to me pales in comparison to others with whom Weaver communicated and countless others who have experienced much worse from people in power,” Stedman said.
And there could be much more where that came from…
For those asking why speaking up about this now: There are others, including some who reached out to me in recent days. Many many many many others, some afraid to say anything.

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
Stay tuned as this story develops.
