Mr. Clark, Mr. Eastman and Mr. Perry all played roles in the effort to keep Mr. Trump in office, according to extensive evidence gathered by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House select committee that is looking into the events of Jan. 6. The men also each had direct dealings with Mr. Trump, meaning the inquiry could ultimately lead to the former president. Mr. Perry was instrumental in pushing Mr. Trump to appoint Mr. Clark as his acting attorney general over the objections of several other top officials at the Justice Department. At one of its presentations, the House committee released text messages in which Mr. Perry repeatedly pressured Mark Meadows, then Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, to reach out to Mr. Clark. Perry, a five-term congressman who last fall became chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is known both for his vigorous support of Trump and for his history of promoting baseless conspiracies on issues that range from terrorism to the coronavirus to the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.   Learn More

In his failed bid to oversee Arizona elections as Arizona's Secretary of State, Finchem baselessly promoted former President Trump's Big Lie of election and voter fraud.
  • Finchem fervently supported the "Stop the Steal" movement, which falsely claimed that Donald Trump won the 2020 election nationally and in Arizona,
  • called for the Arizona legislature to appoint "presidential electors of its own choosing" (fake electors),
  • was a chief proponent of the discredited post-election ballot review in Arizona (fake audits), and 
  •  and naturally was enthusiastically  endorsed by Trump in his bid to oversee future elections in Arizona.
  • Election-denier Finchem characteristically has not yet conceded loss of his bid for Secretary of State of Arizona, premised on a promise to root out non-existent voter and election fraud.

​November 2021: Jared Kushner advising Trump to 'pursue his legal remedies' to the election.

June 2022: Next was Mr. Kushner. In his video he was pressed by Representative Liz Cheney, the committee’s vice chairwoman, about whether he was aware that the White House counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, had been threatening to resign because Mr. Trump was making increasingly outlandish efforts to stay in power.

He added that he knew that Mr. Cipollone and “the team were always saying, ‘Oh we are going to resign, we are not going to be there if this happens, if that happens.’ So I kind of took it up to just be whining, to be honest with you.”

Ms. Cheney: “Whining,” she said. “There’s a reason why people serving in our government take an oath to the constitution. As our founding fathers recognized, democracy is fragile. The people in positions of public trust are duty bound to defend it, to step forward when action is required.

Mitch McConnell - "no worries" about voter suppression or Trump's continuing threats to American democracy - really? Senate minority leader McConnell, who blasted Trump in January for his false allegations of election fraud, views federal legislation that would invalidate voter suppression laws inspired by Trump's Big Lie as "a problem in search of a solution . . . " Asked about Americans ranking threats to democracy higher than other issues, including the cost of living, McConnell told reporters, “I do think it’s an important issue. There were those who were trying to prevent the orderly transfer of power for the first time in American history,” after the 2020 presidential election, “and that was not good.” But the top Senate Republican does not believe that American democracy is facing immediate danger, citing efforts to interrupt the peaceful transfer of power between the election on Nov. 3 and the inauguration on Jan. 20, 2021, that were “thwarted.” “I guess that’s had some impact on the poll. … But look, I think we have a very solid democracy,” McConnell continued. “I don’t think of the things that we need to worry about, I wouldn’t be worried about that one.” ----- “You’ve got two camps right now of people who should speak out and haven’t.
