A group known as the "65 Project" has announced that it plans to seek action against over 100 lawyers of the Trump legal team in the near future. The lawyers being singled out by the group have all worked in the past on lawsuits seeking to overturn the Nov. 2020 presidential elections.
According to Axios, the group "hopes to deter right-wing legal talent from signing on to any future GOP efforts to overturn elections — including the midterms or 2024."
The project's advisory board includes Tom Daschle (D-SD), a former Senate Majority Leader, Christine Durham, a former Chief Justice of the Utah Supreme Court, and Roberta Ramo, an ex-president of the American Bar Association.
The "65 Project," Axios reports, was founded by Melissa Moss, who served as a senior official under the Clinton administration, and as a consultant for the Democratic party since.
Some 111 lawyers are being targeted, in 26 different US states. The project aims to push for specific rules against what they deem to be "fraudulent and malicious lawsuits to overturn legitimate election results" to be enacted by all state bar associations.
Lawyers potentially being singled out by this organization have said that these actions are purely partisan and political in nature.
Paul Davis, a Texas lawyer targeted by the project because of his attendance at the Capitol on Jan. 6 2021, commented that the project simply aims "to neutralize anyone on the right with the ability to stand in the way of the left's efforts to hide malfeasance in the 2020 elections and to clear the path for a repeat of similar malfeasance in the 2022 mid-terms."
Davis also said that, in his opinion, "this move is nothing more than a desperate attempt by leftist hacks and mercenaries."
