The never-Trump grifter group known as the ‘Lincoln Project’ is now going to create a database of former Trump administration officials to track their professional movements in the future.
This is just the latest example of the vindictive, anti-Trump revenge politics we have seen recently, and there is surely more to come.

Lincoln Project Is Reportedly Creating A Database Of Trump Administration Officials
The Lincoln Project is creating a database of officials and staffers from Donald Trump’s administration that will purportedly be used to hold them accountable for supporting the head of state during his time in office, Breitbart reported.
“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,” Lincoln Project staffer and GOP operative Stuart Stevens tweeted on Saturday.
The news comes amid calls for Trump to be impeached and removed from office for his role in the Wednesday attacks on the U.S. Capitol.
Breitbart noted that the database echoes the Trump Accountability Project that was promoted by progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The project was quickly abandoned after backlash from various Republican and Democrat political figures.
The Lincoln Project actively opposed Trump throughout the duration of his presidency and Breitbart noted that the group has become close with the “left-wing elite.”
Trump’s worst critics are everything they accuse him of being.
Meanwhile, the COO of Forbes is telling people not to hire anyone who worked for Trump.
He didn’t say when the database would go live or how the group will make it accessible to the public.
The Lincoln Project actively campaigned against President Trump during the presidential election and supported Democrat candidates during the Georgia runoff elections this month. The group, whose founders include Steve Schmidt and George Conway, became the darling of the left-wing elite, which embraced the group and showered it with donations.
The revelation of the database has already sparked criticism from some prominent conservative media figures. Fox News’s Brit Hume replied, “This will not end well.”
Commentator Tammy Bruce compared the effort to the Star of David patches that Nazis forced Jews to wear during the Holocaust.
The database seems to bear a spiritual resemblance to the short-lived Trump Accountability Project, an effort promoted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that was intended to publicly ostracize Trump administration officials and staffers. The project was abandoned after it received backlash from public figures across the political spectrum.

Forbes executive: Don’t hire Trump White House officials
Forbes’s chief operating officer has a straightforward message for companies as the Trump administration ends: Don’t hire Trump White House officials.
Randall Lane wrote an opinion article for the outlet published on Thursday, in which he argued that the president’s spokespeople have “debase[d] themselves,” so companies shouldn’t “let the chronic liars cash in on their dishonesty.”
He argued that everyone from Sean Spicer to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to Kellyanne Conway to Kayleigh McEnany don’t “merit the same golden parachute” that former press secretaries such as Joe Lockhart, Ari Fleischer, and Jay Carney typically enjoy. Lane noted that Forbes would question the credibility of any company that chooses to employ any Trump official.
“Let it be known to the business world: Hire any of Trump’s fellow fabulists above, and Forbes will assume that everything your company or firm talks about is a lie,” he wrote.
Trump Derangement Syndrome has really brought out the worst in some people.
