Democratic lawmakers, organizations, and activists are fundraising off of the January 6 Capitol riot while at the same time claiming it was one of the most dangerous threats to the U.S. government in history.
Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA) have sent out emails asking for funds while castigating former President Donald Trump and Republicans for allegedly inciting an insurrection that killed multiple people. Democrat and progressive groups such as the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Everytown for Gun Safety have also sent out fundraising emails on the riot’s anniversary.
“One year ago today, supporters of former President Trump stormed the U.S. capitol in an attempt to overturn the results of the free and fair 2020 election. Incited by the ‘big lie’ and disinformation, the insurrectionists tried to overthrow our democracy,” Schumer’s fundraising email begins. “Five people were killed and countless others injured. It was one of the darkest days in American history.”
The DNC’s fundraising message begins similarly: “One year ago today, our democracy was attacked. The will of the people was under assault, and our Constitution faced the gravest of threats.”
