The Lincoln Project, an assembly of extreme Republicans who embraced the ‘Never Trump’ movement, are attempting to resurrect a ‘hit list’ project abandoned by the far-Left during the election targeting Trump’s inner circle and potentates loyal to the President.
The anti-Trump project revealed that their organization is building a database of Trump officials, staffers, and prominent supporters with the intention of “holding them accountable” for supporting the President.
Stuart Stevens, an anti-Trump operative with the Lincoln Project, revealed Saturday that the group is building, in reality, a “blacklist.”
“At @ProjectLincoln we are constructing a database of Trump officials & staff that will detail their roles in the Trump administration & track where they are now,” he tweeted. “No personal info, only professional. But they will be held accountable & not allowed to pretend they were not involved.”

Missing from his statement was how the group intended to deploy or use the “database.”
This move comes as the CEO of one of the internet’s most prominent open-source entities, Mozilla – the company that owns the Firefox browser, Mitchell Baker, wrote in a blog post, “Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms.”
Baker enumerated a number of actions Big Tech should take that included the amplification of “factual voices over disinformation.”

The Lincoln Project, whose founders include Steve Schmidt and George Conway, actively campaigned against the President and supported Democrat candidates during the twin Georgia run-off elections this month.
The Project’s database bears an almost plagiaristic resemblance to the ill-fated Trump Accountability Project, an initiative promoted by Ocasio-Cortez, the Squad, and other radical Leftists in the political sphere.
The Trump Accountability Project was missioned to publicly ostracize Trump administration officials and staffers but was abruptly abandoned after it received harsh backlash from political figures across the spectrum.
