WASHINGTON — President Donald J. Trump attempted to fire White House counsel Don McGahn on six occasions, but in each case the so-called “legal industrial complex” blocked his moves, according to high-level sources. Trump’s attempted replacements in most cases turned down the job.
McGahn is in the news courtesy of the New York Times (his favorite leaking avenue) for sitting down with Robert Mueller for 30 hours to discuss obstruction of justice-related matters. Mueller is trying to pin Trump for obstruction after finding no Russian collusion on Trump’s part. McGahn is also suspected of giving Trump advice with Mueller’s best interests at heart.
McGahn is extremely close with Rod Rosenstein, and the two act as mutually beneficial protectors of one another. Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions never had a relationship and never even spoke before President Trump was elected. So why did Sessions pick Rosenstein to be his number two? He trusted McGahn. It is still unclear at this time why he trusted McGahn, but the possibility of blackmail has been discussed.
The mainstream media is completely unwilling to criticize Don McGahn because he is a well-known leaker to the New York Times and the Washington Post among other outlets.
McGahn has also blocked several of Trump’s desired picks for White House roles.
McGahn might eventually leave the White House after Supreme Court Justice pick Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed. The leading contender to take his job is Emmet Flood, who replaced Trump lawyer Ty Cobb (whom McGahn hated).
Who is Emmet Flood? None other than a former BILL CLINTON ATTORNEY in the Clinton impeachment case!
All of this just goes to show how the Department of Justice and private law firms monopolize the White House, regardless of who the president is, and it shows how completely boxed-in President Trump is by his own lawyers.
Big League Politics exposed how Sally Yates henchman Scott Schools was working against Trump, giving the president bad advice. Schools was fired from the Department of Justice but McGahn clearly should have been fired too.
But Trump went 0-for-6 on firing him.
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.
