In his closing remarks to the Jan. 6 House select committee on Thursday, retired federal judge J. Michael Luttig testified that he believed former President Trump and his supporters represented, "a clear and present danger to American democracy" due to continued efforts to erode confidence in election security. Luttig added, "The former president and his allies are executing that blueprint for 2024 in open and plain view of the American public."
J. MICHAEL LUTTIG: Today, almost two years after that fateful day in January 2021, that still Donald Trump and his allies and supporters are a clear and present danger to American democracy.
The former president and his allies are executing that blueprint for 2024 in open and plain view of the American public. I repeat, I would have never uttered one single one of those words unless the former president and his allies were candidly and proudly speaking those exact words to America. Chairman, thank you for the opportunity to appear here today for these proceedings.
