January 6 Committee has provided undeniable proof that Trump planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn the will of voters

WASHINGTON, D.C. — During tonight’s primetime hearing, the bipartisan House Select Committee to Investigate January 6th focused on the 187 minutes between President Trump’s call for an armed mob to march on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 and when he finally called off his violent attack. 

Stand Up America’s founder and President, Sean Eldridge, issued the following statement in response to tonight’s revelations: 

“Over eight hearings, the January 6th Committee has provided undeniable proof that former President Trump and his allies planned, promoted, and paid for a criminal conspiracy to overturn the will of voters. Tonight, we heard how members of the Secret Service were saying goodbye to their families as Trump egged on the violent, armed mob on January 6th. That should be chilling to every American.

“The threat to our democracy is not in the rearview mirror. More than 100 election-denying candidates are seeking office this year, including key election administration roles from county clerk to secretary of state.   

“It’s clear from the committee’s work that Trump and his allies will go to illegal and violent lengths to seek power. They must be held accountable in the court of law—and we must hold them accountable at the ballot box.”
