Statement by Rahne, Executive Director of MoveOn, to the Committee on 6 January

“What the nation will see this month, starting with the select committee hearing on January 6, is the MAGA extremism in full display. We urgently need to try to reverse intelligent gun violence prevention laws Rowe vs. Wade For new evidence of their deadly coup attempt, Republicans are showing the nation their values, their priorities and their agenda.

“When it comes to January 6, the events are irresistible and undeniable. Donald Trump, encouraged and empowered by the entire Republican Party, led a deadly coup attempt and sought to overthrow a free and fair election in a desperate move to retain power.

“And let’s be clear: the efforts of Donald Trump and the Republican Party to destroy our democracy did not begin on January 6, nor did they end that day. Threats to our democracy and our freedom from MAGA extremism continue today.

“And every day we fail to hold those responsible accountable, another day the dark forces trying to weaken our democracy become stronger.

The GOP agenda means a complete ban on abortion; No meaningful, intelligent gun violence prevention laws; And zero accountability for attempting a deadly coup.

“I can’t imagine a greater contrast for voters this fall than we will see in June.”
