Lincoln Project advisers and ABC News veterans announced the launch of a new media company Tuesday, the same day that former President Donald Trump is expected to declare his 2024 presidential campaign.

Former Republican strategists turned Democratic operatives Stuart Stevens and Rick Wilson are among the Lincoln Project personnel involved in the company, known as Resolute Square. ABC News mainstays Paul Slavin and Keith Summa will serve as CEO and editor-in-chief of the new outlet, Axios reported.

Content on the site will include free and paid newsletters, articles, podcasts and video livestreams for subscribers paying anywhere from $60 to $200 annually. The new outlet has also begun recruiting contributing writers and video producers to make content for the website.

Resolute Square does not consider itself a news company, Stevens told Axios, because they will not tell two sides to stories. Stevens explained to Axios that “[o]ne of the slogans we’re using is, ‘We’re right, they’re wrong.'” Lincoln Project is not financially linked to Resolute Square despite overlapping personnel and similar mission statements.

Lincoln Project has drawn fire for using donations and media attention to build generational wealth for its top personnel, the 19th reported. The 19th also reported on the organization’s coverup of sexual misconduct involving co-founder John Weaver and nearly two dozen young men, as well as broader problems with the organization’s workplace culture.

Weaver resigned from the Lincoln Project in 2020 after allegations came to light. He is not affiliated with the new media venture.
