Since its inception last November — announced with a blistering New York Times op-ed — the brainchild of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and John Weaver has raked in more than $19.4 million dollars, according to FEC filings, and needled President Trump repeatedly with provocative TV ads.

But the group — which the National Review on Monday dubbed “The Grifter Project” and Texan GOP Sen. John Cornyn last week dismissed as a “cabal of political consultants all in it for the money” — don’t exactly practice what they preach.

Worse than that....Russian collusion.

Can we find a British fake James Bond-character to write a dossier over this?

The GOP is running out of time to transform itself.

We are witnessing a civil war within the GOP now. These corrupt, cretinous, insider, establishment RINOs still cling to hopes of power. If somehow they manage to get it, the Republican Party is dead, because no conservatives will vote for these clowns.

How does Kellyanne go home each night to Conway knowing he’s a crook? Imagine the dirt on him!

Most of the $19.4 million dollars funneled back to them self as all other donations were.

Lincoln Project = RHINO INC./ MOLE INC.

I heard they no longer go home to the same house. Can’t confirm it but it does make sense.

The "own" implies that Trump also had such dealings, which I thought thoroughly debunked by now. The word should not be there.
