The anti-Donald Trump Lincoln Project released a statement on Sunday addressing the reports of co-founder John Weaver's alleged sexual harassment of young males. According to the statement, the political action committee was unaware of the political consultant's "secret life." The group called Weaver — who is no longer with the group — a "predator, liar, and an abuser."
Author Ryan Girdusky, who broke the story earlier this month, claimed the Lincoln Project is lying about their ignorance of Weaver's purported sexual harassment.
"This statement by the @ProjectLincoln is an absolute lie," he tweeted. "Members did know. Young men approached them about the accusations. Members knew I was writing the story and warned John Weaver."
Girdusky noted the Lincoln Project ignored the accusations until they were covered in The New York Times report published on Sunday.
"When young men approached them they ignored it. When they heard I was working on the story they warned Weaver. When I wrote a story they said nothing. When Axios published a story they said he's just gay. Now he's a predator. @ProjectLincoln lied. They knew. They're complicit."
