Ted Olson, who served as assistant attorney general for Ronald Reagan and solicitor general for George W. Bush — told the National Law Journal that he is now backing impeachment of President Trump.
Said Olson: “This is not just Jan 6. Trump has been attempting for weeks to convince the American public—and duly elected and appointed election officials—that the election was a fraud and was stolen from him, in the face of irrefutable evidence and numerous judicial opinions to the contrary. This was a constant and fraudulent effort to undermine the integrity of American institutions and processes. It culminated, of course, in the violence and lawlessness on Jan. 6.”
He added: “I haven’t resolved yet what I plan to do, but certainly do not plan to contribute financially to or support candidates or committees who do not pass the test of character presented by the Senate’s vote on the impeachment trial.”Save to Favorites
