A radical left-wing group funded by dark money is beginning an advertising campaign to harass, intimidate, and ultimately disbar lawyers who supported President Donald Trump.
As reported by The Hill, the group is called the 65 Project, and is currently targeting over 100 lawyers who were involved in lawsuits related to widespread election fraud in the 2020 presidential election. In addition to filing 10 ethics complaints, the group will also air advertisements in key swing states slandering these lawyers and calling for their disbarment.
The group’s website falsely describes President Trump’s voter fraud claims as “bogus and riddled with false statements,” despite the fact that there was in fact overwhelming evidence of widespread irregularities and fraudulent practices in many of the swing states that decided the election.
“Success in the courtroom was not the only objective” of the pro-Trump lawyers, the website continues. “Instead, the lawyers bringing these claims knew they were a key component of a larger effort to discredit the 2020 presidential election — and all future elections in which their preferred candidate lost.”
The group plans to target a total of 111 lawyers in 26 different states, including the swing states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. With numerous connections to the Democratic Party and having already received large dark money donations to support their efforts, the group is set to spend millions on slanderous advertisements.
Members of the 65 Project’s board include former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), former George W. Bush Administration official Paul Rosenzweig, former Chief Justice of the Utah Supreme Court Christine Durham, and former president of the American Bar Association Roberta Ramo.
One of the group’s advisers is David Brock, the founder of several far-left organizations, including Media Matters for America and the American Bridge 21st Century super PAC.
The group’s intentions, Brock said, are “not only bring the grievances in the bar complaints, but shame them and make them toxic in their communities and in their firms.”
One of the attorneys being targeted by the group, Paul Davis, issued a statement declaring that “this move is nothing more than a desperate attempt by leftist hacks and mercenaries.”
