A NEW LINCOLN PROJECT VIDEO SHOWS THE JANUARY 6TH COMMITTEE PROVED DONALD TRUMP’S RESPONSIBILITY
July 21, 2022 — In advance of today’s January 6th Committee hearing, The Lincoln Project is releasing a new digital ad highlighting how the committee has proven that Donald Trump was responsible for January 6th.
Each of the hearings have increasingly shown that January 6th was not a protest that got out of hand; it was the culmination of a months’ long effort aimed at preventing the peaceful transfer of power. The nation has seen how Trump worked with corrupt lawyers, sycophant Members of Congress, and Fox News to drive his supporters into a frenzy, all in the hopes of illegally staying in power.
The ad can be seen here. It will target suburban Republicans in Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan through the weekend.
“Thanks to the great investigative work by the bi-partisan January 6th Committee, we have proof that Donald Trump tried to overturn an election and disrupt our Constitutional process,” said Reed Galen, co-founder of the Lincoln Project. “The committee showed that Trump wanted the crowd to attack the Capitol to stop the certification of the election. He wanted to go to the Capitol and lead them personally. He was willing to see the murder of Vice President Pence at the hands of his supporters. We haven’t seen this level of betrayal by an American president and we must ensure we never do again. Donald Trump must be held to account for his actions and can never occupy the Oval Office again.”
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
