The Hill: Watchdog group urges Jan. 6 committee to question Republican AGs
A watchdog group is calling on Republican attorneys general to testify before Congress about their role in organizing a Jan. 6 rally that preceded the Capitol attack.
In a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and members of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot, Accountable.US urged lawmakers to question the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) and some of its key members about their involvement in a pro-Trump rally before the Capitol attack.
“We can’t move forward as a country without accountability for all those who helped incite the deadly attack on the Capitol on January 6th, including several Big Lie-embracing Republican attorneys general that baselessly sued to toss out legitimate election results,” Accountable.US President Kyle Herrig said in a statement.
Accountable.US called on lawmakers to question key members of the group, including Marshall, Bisbee and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who led an unsuccessful legal effort to overturn the 2020 election results. Paxton spoke at the Jan. 6 rally, where he told Trump supporters “we will not quit fighting.”
