(Liberty Bell) – Fox News’ Tucker Carlson scorched his colleagues in the media for overwhelmingly ignoring massive scandals involving the Never Trump Lincoln Project and the thousands of nursing home patients who died of COVID under Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo’s policies.
Carlson opened his program with a focus on the Lincoln Project, the Never Trump organization that is falling apart as a scandal involving one of its co-founders sending explicit messages to young men—including underage boys—for years.
He’s married, by the way, yet used the opportunity to come out as a homosexual man.
This week, Steve Schmidt stepped down as the leader of the think tank as he faces increased pressure to reveal what he knew about his co-founder John Weaver’s alleged sexual misconduct.
“It’s an awful story, but here’s the worst part: The Lincoln Project clearly had a pretty good idea what John Weaver was up to. For decades, political consultants whispered rumors that John Weaver had tried to molest little boys,” Carlson explained.
“Karl Rove, to his credit, once said that out loud and was promptly attacked by the Atlantic magazine. Weaver’s colleagues at the Lincoln Project knew all this, but they hid the truth from the public and from law enforcement. Inside the organization, they made it clear they understood what was happening.”
He also focused on the group’s finances, which have some rather mysterious features.
Rick Wilson, Carlson says, reportedly had hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid federal taxes before joining up with the Lincoln Project. When Wilson was essentially bankrupt and unable to pay his credit card debt, the Lincoln Project seems to have made it all disappear.
“Of the $90 million Lincoln Project has raised, more than $50 million has gone to firms controlled by the group’s leaders,” the AP reported.
In December alone, Schmidt purchased a new home with the $1.5 million he received for his role in the company.
“According to news reports, the Lincoln Project spent $38,000 on a private jet company. They spent $1.7 million with co-founder Mike Madrid’s firm, and they gave $420,000 to co-founder Reid Galen’s firm. We hope these guys saved the money because it’s hard to imagine we’ll be hearing much more from The Lincoln Project,” Carlson detailed.
Next up on the list of corrupt establishment figures the mainstream media completely ignores?
Democratic Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, who has long been accused of being responsible for the deaths of thousands of nursing home patients after he required long-term care facilities re-admit COVID-19 positive patients.
Carlson pointed out that, while these people were dying, the state was going bankrupt and Cuomo was just performing political theatre for the Democratic Party.
“A lot of people expected Andrew Cuomo to be Joe Biden’s attorney general, maybe even vice president. Cuomo played an instrumental role in Biden’s campaign for the White House He helped the party leverage coronavirus for political ends. He’s one of the reasons that a lot of voters in November wound up believing that Donald Trump was personally responsible for COVID. Some voters appeared convinced that Trump had cooked up the virus himself in a lab deep beneath Mar-a-Lago.”
Cuomo went on to win an Emmy—and Emmy!—and published a book, all while his state was one of the biggest hot spots, he constantly kept it locked down and drove the economy into the ground, and now as has been revealed in much greater detail this week, oversaw the death of thousands of nursing home patients.
This week, Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted privately that the governor had hidden the total number of nursing home deaths that were COVID-related, appearing to indicate this was kept quiet for the sake of maintain the right façade for political reasons.
“He [Trump] starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa told party lawmakers. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov. Gretchen] Whitmer.”
She went on to express concern that Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us. And basically, we froze, because we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice or what we gave to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation. That played a very large role in this.”
This is a huge and explosive scandal, and anyone who believes in the simple moral principle of reporting the facts should be all over this.
But we have a sycophantically leftist corporate media complex who is just as concerned about spinning narratives in favor of the Democrat party as the Cuomo administration appears to have been about their nursing home death scandal.
