As Donald Trump’s MAGA minions Lauren Boebert, Alex Bruesewitz, and Donald Trump Jr. campaign together in Colorado, DNC spokesperson Aida Ross released the following statement: 

“The last time Lauren Boebert, Alex Bruesewitz, and Donald Trump Jr. teamed up, it was to try to overturn the 2020 election results. These three MAGA minions are now pushing an extreme platform to threaten our democracy while Trump continues to center his presidential campaign on his dangerous election denialism and promises to pardon violent insurrectionists. It’s a losing formula for the Republican Party, and voters will stop these anti-democracy extremists at the polls this November.”

Lauren Boebert worked to decertify the 2020 election results and was in communication with Jan. 6 riot organizers in the lead up to the insurrection.

Colorado Newsline: “Rep. Boebert involved in ‘beginning stages’ of White House Jan. 6 planning, ex-aide says”

“U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado was involved in the ‘beginning stages’ of talks with senior White House officials that ultimately led to efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to decertify the 2020 election results, a former top aide told congressional investigators.

“Boebert, a controversial first-term lawmaker from Silt, has been scrutinized for giving tours of the Capitol to a ‘large group’ of people on the day prior to the insurrection, and for sending tweets that some characterized as relaying ‘intel’ about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s location during the attack. On the morning of Jan. 6, she tweeted, ‘Today is 1776.’”

Colorado Newsline: “Organizers of the Jan. 6 protests that led to a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol were allegedly in communication with Rep. Lauren Boebert’s office in the lead-up to the event.”

Denver Post: “Colorado U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert met with then-President Donald Trump’s White House officials before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, while they discussed what options the vice president had when faced with certifying the 2020 election, a high-level aide said.”

Boebert voted against certifying the results of the 2020 election.

Alex Bruesewitz is a MAGA loyalist who was one of the organizers of the organization that planned the Trump rally that ignited the Jan. 6 riots.

Politico: “Trump allies are plotting to fund potential pro-MAGA primary challengers to oust those disloyal Republicans. ‘We’ll put some money behind’ trying to oust these Republicans, said Alex Bruesewitz, one of the organizers of Stop the Steal, an organization linked to high-profile MAGA personalities that is helping organize a major Jan. 6 pro-Trump rally in Washington.”

Bruesewitz said he was attending Trump’s speech on Jan. 6 because he “shared President Trump’s concerns about election integrity.”

Bruesewitz: “[The Jan. 6 Select Committee] can go to hell! I will never apologize for exercising my constitutional rights after the 2020 ‘election.’”

Donald Trump Jr. pitched plans to subvert the 2020 election results and spoke at the rally on Jan. 6, where he threatened Republican lawmakers who were planning to vote in favor of certifying the election results.

CNN: “‘We control them all’: Donald Trump Jr. texted Meadows ideas for overturning 2020 election before it was called”

“In the text … Donald Trump Jr. lays out ideas for keeping his father in power by subverting the Electoral College process.”

Politico: “President Donald Trump’s eldest sons threatened Republican lawmakers … pledging that their family would continue to dispute the results of the 2020 election just hours before Congress was set to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

“‘To those Republicans, many of which may be voting on things in the coming hours: You have an opportunity today,’ Donald Trump Jr. told the crowd… ‘You can be a hero, or you can be a zero. And the choice is yours. But we are all watching. The whole world is watching, folks. Choose wisely.’

“‘These guys better fight for Trump. Because if they’re not, guess what? I’m going to be in your backyard in a couple of months!’ Donald Trump Jr. said.”

Trump is still pushing baseless lies about his loss by over 7 million votes in the 2020 election.

Associated Press: “[Trump] is flooding the airwaves and his social media platform with distortions, misinformation and unfounded conspiracy theories about his defeat.”

NBC News: “Re-litigating the 2020 election, repeating false claims it was stolen and casting aspersions on the security of mail voting remain major fixtures for [Trump] on the stump. … He regularly refers to the 2020 election as ‘rigged’ on his social media channels.”

New York Times: “Donald J. Trump pressured state and federal government officials to overturn results of the 2020 election in more than 30 phone calls or meetings.”

Associated Press: “Trump, running for the White House for the third time, has signaled that the 2020 election will remain an integral part of his 2024 presidential bid.”

WPR: “One day before his campaign stop in Green Bay, former President Donald Trump continued to push the false claim that he won Wisconsin four years ago — despite a recount, audits and court cases showing he lost to President Joe Biden.”

Trump continues to praise and embrace violent Jan. 6 rioters – calling them “hostages” and “patriots” and vowing to pardon “a large portion” of those who attacked our Capitol. 

Associated Press: “Trump is making the Jan. 6 attack a cornerstone of his bid for the White House”

Trump: “January 6, it was the largest crowd I’ve ever spoken to. And they were there proud, they were there with love in their heart. That was an unbelievable — and it was a beautiful day.”
