Milwaukee – Today, in the wake of the beginning of the Congressional hearings on the January 6th Insurrection, Alex Lasry released the following statement:
“What happened at the Capitol on January 6th was an assault on our Democracy and an attempt to reverse—through violent means—the outcome of a free and fair election. This attack did not come out of nowhere. Donald Trump, Ron Johnson, and the many members of the GOP poisoned faith in our democracy and fomented an insurrection. Since the attack, Ron Johnson has continually downplayed what happened, and has even called the insurrection and attack on our Capitol a ‘peaceful protest’ despite the loss of life and injuries to Capitol Police.
“Ron Johnson and other Republicans that continue to perpetuate this dangerous lie are a threat to our Democracy. Tonight, we will relive one of the most difficult moments in recent memory—going through countless amounts of evidence of a brutal assault on our nation’s Capitol by a group of far-right extremists.
“Anyone that continues to downplay this assault and perpetuates this big lie is not fit to serve. The people of Wisconsin are tired of Ron Johnson’s lies, and this November, they’re going to show him that at the ballot box.”
The Democratic Primary Election for the United States Senate will be held Tuesday, August 9th, 2022. For more information about Alex Lasry’s campaign, visit www.alexlasry.com.
