Statement From the Lincoln Project On the Congressional Referral of Ex president Donald J. Trump to the DOJ for Criminal Prosecution...



December 19, 2022 — The Lincoln Project released the following takeaways from the final January 6th Committee Hearing taking place December 19th

  • Donald Trump deserves to be referred to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. The January 6th Committee clearly showed he directed a conspiracy to violently overthrow the results of a valid election and install himself as the illegitimate ruler of the United States of America. 
  • The nation must be assured that January 6th cannot be repeated. No one should be under any illusions that Trump and the MAGA movement are finished. January 6th put into motion an insidious effort to impose an authoritarian government. MAGA followers are working to stifle dissent, strangle their opposition, and consolidate power in the hands of their chosen few. They’re promising to purge the government of anyone who won’t bow to their MAGA ideology. 
  • Trump fully controls the GOP because cowards like Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell are more concerned with their own status and headlines, rather than doing the right thing for the nation and democracy. These enablers gloss over and downplay Trump’s damage to the nation because it’s to their benefit. They continually put their own self-interest ahead of the good of the nation. 
  • The media must hold GOP leadership and Presidential candidates accountable by asking each of them if they agree with the Committee’s referrals. It is time for them to tell the American people exactly where they stand. 
  • The media must stop assuming there is a “normal GOP” if only Trump would go away. Trump has completely shifted the overton window. The “normal GOP” wants to install a legal framework to roll back the clock to a time where interracial marriage was forbidden, segregation was left to the states, gays were in the closet, men controlled their home, and women had no agency over their own bodies.
  • Prosecuting Trump and his accomplices is the only way to install confidence in the system and show that no one is above the law. If not, they will only be emboldened to continue their anti-democratic scheming.
  • The members of Congress who refused to testify are preventing the American people from knowing the truth about their involvement in a plot to stop the peaceful transfer of power. 

  • They violated their oaths and have shown they do not belong in public office. Trump created the worst moment in American history since the Civil War; He divided the nation in his quest for power and to enrich himself. Trump now wants to return to office to finish what he started. 

  • Every American must again choose their side: will they stand with seditionists who tried to tear down a free and fair election or support democratic principles?
  • The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.

    December 19, 2022 was another good day in the USA. Spotlight is on the most egregiously corrupt politician/president in American history. It is now up to the DOJ to do the right thing and use the evidence the congressional committee provides them, along with the department's own investigative evidence, to prosecute the man who wanted to be King and fomented an insurrection in his attempt to overthrow our democracy and retain power illegally.

    Justice must be served. America deserves and demands it.
