The Lincoln Project is imploding. Here’s why.

The Lincoln Project is a well-funded group of “never Trump” Republican consultants who banded together to fight against the Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020. Despite finding huge success early on, the group is now dealing with a series of allegations against one of its co-founders, followed by a set of high-profile resignations. In his latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains what we can learn from the Lincoln Project’s implosion.
