J6 Prisoners Are Terrorists; Stefanik Is Embarrassing Herself For Trump’s Attention

January 7 – The Lincoln Project releases the following statement and video on Congresswoman Stefanik’s disturbing comments about the January 6th insurrectionists:

“J6 prisoners are not hostages or heroes. They are radicalized terrorists who were doing the bidding of the most anti-democratic man to ever hold office in the history of our nation.

“Elise Stefanik is desperately pleading for the attention and favor of Donald Trump in a misguided attempt to further her political ambitions at the expense of American democracy. She is an embarrassment to the office she holds and to the oath she has taken to defend this nation against enemies foreign and domestic.”
