THE LINCOLN PROJECT AD HIGHLIGHTS THE STAKES OF THE JANUARY 6TH HEARINGS
June 10, 2022 — The Lincoln Project released a new ad encouraging the January 6 Committee to play hardball, point out the dangerous insurrectionists and the mob of attackers, and establish accountability for the violence of that day.
“Last night, we saw clear and damning evidence: that Donald Trump led and drove the insurrection,” said Rick Wilson, co-founder of the Lincoln Project. “We heard it in their own words; the violent mob that assaulted our democracy did so on his orders. He knew he had lost, but his political toadies and media allies aided and abetted him in a failed attempt to overthrow our democratic system.”
“The MAGA world, and Fox News, are in a desperate spin cycle trying to wash off the stain of their violent allies. It won’t work, and this ad is a reminder that the GOP is indelibly stained by this attack.”
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
