What Michael Luttig will tell the Jan. 6 committee

Luttig wrote in his statement to the committee: “From their inception, the legal arguments that underlaid the efforts to overturn the 2020 election were, in that context, little more than beguiling and frivolous, perhaps appropriate for academic classroom debate, but singularly inappropriate as counsel to the President of the United States of America in his effort to overturn the presidential election — an election he had lost fair and square and as to which there was not then, and there is not to this day, evidence of fraud.”…

“This false and reckless insistence that the former president won the 2020 presidential election has laid waste to Americans’ confidence in their national elections,” Luttig wrote. “More alarming still is that the former president pledges that his reelection will not be ‘stolen’ from him next time around, and his Republican Party allies and supporters obeisantly pledge the same.”

Luttig also offered a defense of the committee’s focus on January 6, warning that “America’s democracy was almost stolen from us” and urging the American public to pay attention.

“No American ought to turn away from January 6, 2021,” he said, “until all of America comes to grips with what befell our country that day, and we decide what we want for our democracy from this day, forward.”
