WASHINGTON, D.C. — Stand Up America’s Executive Director Christina Harvey issued the following statement after the second public hearing of the January 6 Committee:

“President Trump knew he lost the 2020 election—his own Attorney General, lawyers, and campaign manager testified that they told him so. Today, we even heard testimony from an electoral expert who was a Fox News political editor on election night 2020 that ‘Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.’ was the clear winner of the 2020 presidential election. Instead of accepting his loss, Trump planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn the will of American voters. He peddled bogus claims of election fraud, swindled his supporters out of millions of dollars, and encouraged them to break the law in an effort to block the peaceful transition of power. It’s clear we cannot allow Trump or his allies to evade accountability for the dangerous lies and actions that continue to put our democracy in peril.”
