Roger Stone claimed on Thursday that Paul Singer, a Never-Trump billionaire hedge fund manager, was the original funder of the Fusion GPS dossier.
Appearing on InfoWars, Stone asserted that “we can now reveal that hedge fund manager Paul Singer was the original financier of this Trump smear document.”
“Representatives for Singer, a major GOP donor, denied in 2014 that the billionaire had hired Fusion GPS, the company that produced the dossier, to investigate the Argentine government. However, Singer’s team refused to confirm or deny this year whether the hedge fund tycoon had worked on the Trump dossier,” InfoWars reported.
Further, Stone declared that Senator John McCain was the one who acted as a go-between for Singer’s team and the FBI.
“The Democrats want to talk about dirty tricks, this is the dirtiest trick that I have ever seen,” the king of “dirty tricks” declared.
The dossier was a creation of former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele outlining a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government through a series of wild accusations. While none of the claims have been proven, several have been debunked. For instance, the report claims that Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, met in Prague with Russian officials who were involved in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee. This claim was immediately refuted when the attorney posted a photo of his passport asserting that he has never been to Prague.
After Trump secured the Republican nomination, the Clinton campaign took over funding the research contained within the dossier.
On Wednesday, when asked about the Democratic Party’s funding of the dossier, Trump asserted that they made up the entire Russia hoax as an excuse for losing the election.
“The whole Russia thing … this was the Democrats coming up with an excuse for losing the election,” Trump told reporters on Wednesday. “They lost it and they lost it very badly. And they didn’t know what to say, so they made up the whole Russia hoax.”
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.
