McMaster Deputy’s Husband Works For Reporter Maggie Haberman’s Mom

Published

on

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster’s deputy Nadia Schadlow is married to an employee of New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s mother.

These connections reveal the insular world that our foreign policy elites inhabit, in which the press and the players involved all travel in the same upper-crust circles, with no outside ideas managing to enter their privileged bubble.

Maggie Haberman covers the Trump administration and frequently writes about McMaster.

In May, Charles C. Johnson’s GotNews.com reported that H.R. McMaster was leaking to the mainstream media.

Two months earlier, in March, McMaster hired Nadia Schadlow, whom the Washington Post referred to as a “GOP foreign policy expert,” to serve as the National Security Council’s senior director for strategy.

McMaster and Schadlow are well-known neocon establishment types, and despised by Trump’s Deplorable base.

Nadia Schadlow is married to Philip Michael Murphy. When the two were married in 1993, Schadlow was working the Ukraine desk for the Secretary of Defense and Murphy was an editor at a Maryland-based publishing company that had purchased Regnery Publishing.

Schadlow and Murphy started a communications consulting firm called The Invisible Hand together, which Murphy ran from 2013 to 2016. In 2016, Murphy was hired as senior writer at Rubenstein.

Rubenstein describes itself as a “Strategic, results-oriented publicity & media relations” firm, based in New York City. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman follows the firm on Twitter. Nancy Haberman is the executive vice president at Rubenstein, where her bio notes, “Has a family of journalists. And the kids she was home with now have kids of their own.”

Nancy Haberman, a “top Rubenstein exec,” is Maggie Haberman’s mother, according to New York magazine.

So, let’s recap.

H.R. McMaster has been accused of leaking. His deputy Nadia Schadlow is married to a senior writer at Rubenstein, where he works for New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s mom.

Married Lincoln Project Co-Founder John Weaver Accused of Grooming Young Men, Offering Jobs for Sex

Well this isn’t a good look.

Published

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.

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…

Neither The Lincoln Project nor it’s leadership have publicly commented on the accusations yet, including Weaver himself.
