    The mother of 22-year-old 'van-life woman' Gabby Petito sent her daughter's boyfriend and his family desperate texts looking for her but was ignored.  Gabby's mother Nicole Schmidt told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that on September 10 she reached out to Brian and his mother Roberta Laundrie trying to reach her daughter after she had not heard from Gabby since August 25.  'I texted Brian's mom that I was trying to get in touch with Gabby. I also texted Brian. I got no replies,' Schmidt said.  'I knew something was wrong,' she said. 'I felt something was off and I needed to get her reported missing immediately.' She went to report Gabby missing later that day but police initially blew her off. The next day, she was allowed to file a report with the Suffolk County police department.  Brian's family have since refused to let authorities interview their son when the van that the couple had traveled in before she disappeared was seized from their property late on Saturday night. Nicole Schmidt, of Long Island, New York, gave a...
    Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt pitched a joint media venture with John Weaver as an equal partner months after allegations of Weaver's predatory online conduct had come to the organization's attention, according to a new report. The New York Times reported Monday that Schmidt, Weaver and fellow co-founders Rick Wilson and Reed Galen sought to transform their anti-Trump super PAC into a massive media organization. They pitched the idea shortly before the November election. By this point, however, Weaver's penchant for harassing dozens of men online with inappropriate comments and offers to trade sex for employment was known to the group's higher-ups, according to reporting by Fox News and multiple other outlets. However, after raising $90 million from liberal donors in less than a year and becoming a mainstream press favorite, the leaders dreamed of becoming a global media force. MSNBC'S NICOLLE WALLACE IGNORED LINCOLN PROJECT SCANDDALS AFTER CONSTANTLTY HOSTING, PRAISING CO-FOUNDERS Schmidt, one of the Lincoln Project's most visible members due to his bombastic appearances on MSNBC, has claimed he had no knowledge of Weaver's conduct until it was reported on this year. However, The 19th reported...
    Steve Schmidt, one of the high-profile co-founders of The Lincoln Project, announced on Friday that he is resigning from the group's board. Schmidt's decision comes amid a series of scandals that have plagued the anti-Trump PAC run by longtime Republican operatives. "Presently, the Lincoln Project board is made up of four middle-aged white men. That composition doesn't reflect our nation, nor our movement. I am resigning my seat on the Lincoln Project board to make room for the appointment of a female board member as the first step to reform and professionalize the Lincoln Project," Schmidt said in a statement posted to Twitter on Friday evening. Schmidt's announcement comes after the Associated Press reported Thursday that the Lincoln Project's leadership was informed in June 2020 of "at least 10 specific allegations of harassment against co-founder John Weaver, including two involving Lincoln Project employees." New York Magazine also reported Thursday that leaders were aware of allegations against Weaver in June. In late January, the New York Times reported that 21 men accused Weaver of sending "unsolicited and sexually provocative...
    U.S. Figure Skating has agreed to pay $1.45million to a former competitive skater to settle his lawsuit accusing the national governing body of being negligent in its duty to protect athletes from sexual abuse at the hands of a star coach.  Adam Schmidt filed a lawsuit in 2019 in a San Diego court claiming that he suffered 'numerous sexual assaults' by Richard Callaghan while he was training with the coach as a 14-year-old teen.  U.S. Figure Skating and its insurer 'enter[ed] into this Agreement making no admission of fault, liability, wrongdoing or misconduct of any kind, and no admissions as to the validity of any the claims or defenses in the Action,' according to terms of the settlement agreement. Schmidt, however, said he feels the settlement suggests something different.   Adam Schmidt filed a lawsuit in 2019 in a San Diego court claiming that he suffered 'numerous sexual assaults' by Richard Callaghan while he was training with the coach as a 14-year-old teen ABC News Privacy Policy Callaghan, who was suspended in 2018 by the federation pending an...
    Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt is reportedly trying to get his hands on a European passport. The 65-year-old tech tycoon — whose string of extra-marital affairs have made him a regular fixture on Page Six — is finalizing a plan to become a citizen of the small Mediterranean island of Cyprus, Recode reported on Monday. The documentation would allow Schmidt, who was born in Virginia, to bypass strict COVID-19 related travel bans on the continent. Cyprus law allows foreigners to apply for citizenship if they have held property on the island worth at least 2 million euros for more than 5 years. It is far more commonly taken advantage of by Russian oligarchs than US tech moguls, according to the report. Schmidt, who led the search giant from 2001 until 2011, is currently the 82nd richest person on earth with a net worth of $19.2 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. Al Jazeera recently reported that Cypriot officials have “expressed a willingness to sell EU passports to criminals.”  The European Union last month said it would crack down...

    Former Republican strategist Steve Schmidt appeared on MSNBC on Friday and claimed that Fox News host Tucker Carlson is the current frontrunner for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination, Mediaite reported. Schmidt noted that almost half of the country voted for a “statist, authoritarian movement with fascistic markers” that opposes American democracy and supports a “cult of personality.” “I think that Tucker Carlson is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024,” he continued. “What you are going to see is every Republican candidate will kowtow to the conspiracy that Trump was stabbed in the back by unseen malicious forces of the deep state, that the election was stolen, that it’s illegitimate forever.” As noted by Mediaite, Carlson’s monologues from his eponymous Fox News show were widely shared by Trump supporters throughout the 2020 election. He often discusses issues relating to both politics and American culture and pushes a populist agenda similar the one that Trump centered his 2016 campaign around.   Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images Schmidt is not the only one to believe that Carlson is set...
    The leader of the far-right group Patriot Prayer is suing the district attorney of the Portland, Oregon, region who is prosecuting them for rioting last year while refusing to charge left-leaning protesters who have been engaged in often violent demonstrations for months. Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson and Russell Schultz are due in court Oct. 26 for trials stemming from a May Day 2019 riot, The Oregonian reported. They were among six men accused of inciting a riot between the right-wing group and left-leaning Antifa outside a Northeast Portland pub. The other four pleaded guilty and were sentenced in January. Gibson and Schultz accused Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt of unfair prosecution in a federal suit filed Friday. The suit claims that Schmidt is selectively prosecuting them based on their political beliefs, because he is refusing to dismiss the single felony riot allegation against them in light of his new policy. Schmidt announced last month that his office wouldn’t pursue riot charges against most of the hundreds of people who have been arrested in Portland protests in recent...
    On Friday, Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter to promote a clip of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s testimony before a House subcommittee that he suggested mainstream media outlets don’t want the American public to see. “The fake news media doesn’t want you to see this clip, so let’s drive them crazy and make it go viral!!!” Trump Jr. wrote. In the clip, Republican Rep. Steve Scalise asked Fauci about the decisions he worked with Donald Trump to make in the coronavirus task force’s effort to take control of the pandemic. In particular, Schmidt pressed Fauci about banning flight from China — a controversial decision at the time — and whether he believes the decision saved lives. “Yes, I do,” Fauci said. Fauci also said he was “actively involved” in the discussion to extend the ban to regions like Europe and the United Kingdom, and again said he agreed with the decisions and believed that they saved lives. Schmidt noted that disagreement between Fauci and Trump is often highlighted and instead painted a picture that revealed the many things the pair worked...
