WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the January 6th Committee held its first public hearing on efforts by President Trump and his allies to overthrow the 2020 election. The committee’s public hearings are the culmination of a year-long nonpartisan investigation that seeks to provide the public with a full accounting of the events leading up to and after the attack.

Stand Up America’s Executive Director Christina Harvey commented: 
“Tonight’s hearing made clear that the attack on our country on January 6th, 2021 was not random— it was designed and orchestrated by Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans to block the peaceful transfer of power and overthrow an election that even Trump’s Attorney General and his own family testified they knew that he had lost. As Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney stated tonight: ‘President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack.’
“After tonight’s revelations, the American people will be watching and demanding accountability for Donald Trump and his MAGA co-conspirators.”
