In response to today’s hearing by the January 6th Committee, Issue One Founder and CEO Nick Penniman released the following statement:

“Today’s courageous testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson confirms that the January 6th attack against U.S. democracy was premeditated and condoned by a sitting president who knowingly directed a heavily armed mob to the Capitol to halt the peaceful transfer of power and overturn the will of the people. The preservation of our democratic republic demands accountability by both the legislative and judicial branches.”
