The Lincoln Project: Law and Order
From The Lincoln Project’s official YouTube description: Trump’s campaign manager is a felon. His deputy campaign manager is a felon. His national security advisor is a felon. His foreign policy advisor is a felon. His personal lawyer is a felon. His long time advisor is a felon. It’s not a campaign, it’s a criminal enterprise.
The following is from the official press release for “Law and Order”
“July 11, 2020 – The Lincoln Project’s latest ad, “Law and Order,” condemns President Trump’s choice to commute Roger Stone’s sentence. Stone was an informal advisor to the President and convicted of several felonies for lying under oath, obstructing a congressional inquiry, and obstructing witness testimony –– in order to protect the president. This continues a pattern of numerous convicted felons who have festered in the Trump Administration and campaign.
Sarah Lenti, Executive Director of The Lincoln Project, said, “President Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence sent a message to all would-be Trump co-conspirators: protect Trump, and he’ll protect you. This isn’t how Law & Order works in America.”
“Roger Stone lied under oath, he was given a fair trial, found guilty by a jury of his peers and sentenced. But because he’s cozy with Trump he gets a break.” Lenti continued, “This administration’s inner circle of convicted felons cannot have another chance to bury our country into the ground any further than they already have.”
President Trump’s administration looks out for one person and one person only –– and that’s Trump. He’s not an honorable commander in chief. He scammed the American people who voted for him into thinking he’d actually work for them –– he’s shown himself to be the failed businessman he truly is.”
The Lincoln Project – Crowds
Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Ad. Says “Trump’s Fantasy Has Come True”
The following comes from Lincoln Project’s official press release:
June 9, 2020- Contrary to all evidence, since his inauguration, President Donald J. Trump has been lying about the size of the crowds that he says have come out to cheer him on.
Finally, this week, in cities across America, from coast to coast, and small towns in between, crowds even larger than he ever imagined possible have gathered — not to cheer Trump on — but in solidarity with one message: It’s time for him to go.
Donald Trump, the American people are speaking directly to you with a simple message: It’s time to start packing your bags.
The Lincoln Project: Steps
From YouTube description: 📺 159 years ago Abraham Lincoln asked, “Will you risk the commission of so fearful a mistake?” Today, we hope our elected leaders will listen.
The following is taken from Lincoln Project’s official press release:
June 6, 2020- The Lincoln Project has grave concerns about the Trump Administration’s response to the Americans who today choose to exercise their First Amendment rights to peacefully assemble and to petition our government in our nation’s capital.
These laws are the foundation of our Republic. And even while serving as the president of a divided nation, Abraham Lincoln held these principles above all others.
This makes Lincoln’s concerns so long ago relevant again today:“Before entering upon so grave a matter as the destruction of our national fabric…with all its benefits, its memories, and its hopes… would it not be wise to ascertain precisely why we do it?”
It is almost as if he were speaking from his grave to question our elected leaders today: “Will you risk the commission of so fearful a mistake?”
Lincoln Project – War Zone
Lincoln Project Releases New Anti-Trump Advertisement. Says America is a War Zone, Trump Adds “Kerosene to the Fire”
The following comes from the Lincoln Project’s official press release:
June 3, 2020-The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “War Zone,” released today, lays bare the state of the nation under President Donald Trump’s regime. In this moment of upheaval and unrest, our country needs real leadership.
“Donald Trump has completely failed at governing,”said George Conway, co-founder of The Lincoln Project. “He’s no longer hiding that he’s a brazen authoritarian, so desiring of control and power that he’s willing to turn our once peaceful cities into war zones for his own political gain, at the direct expense of American lives.”
Reed Galen, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said, “Donald J. Trump has no qualms about inciting violence and mayhem, from the safety of his White House bunker. In an explicit show of totalitarianism, he has taken the U.S. military and police forces and mobilized them against our own citizens. The United States must choose: America or Trump?”
No American should live in fear due to the color of their skin, their political affiliation, or their religion. Donald J. Trump has taken the side of the oppressor and the American people have made it clear they will not stand.The Lincoln Project will fight to protect all Americans and our democracy and ensure that Donald J. Trump is not re-elected come November, and Joe Biden is sworn into office come January.
Donald Trump: Healing, Not Hatred
From YouTube description: “We support the right of peaceful protesters, and we hear their pleas,” said President Trump. “I stand before you as a friend and ally to every American seeking justice and peace.”
Priorities USA – Antithetical
New TV Ad from Priorities USA Action: Donald Trump Divides the Country with Chaos and Hate
The following comes from the official press release by Priorities One USA:
Priorities USA Action is releasing a new TV ad, ‘Antithetical,’ to run in battleground states featuring Donald Trump’s chaotic and violent response to the mostly peaceful protests that have swept the nation following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis. On Monday, while protesters peacefully gathered near the White House, law enforcement was ordered to violently clear the crowd with gas and flashbangs so Trump could stage a photo op. At a time when the country needs leadership, Donald Trump brings only more chaos, division, and racism.
The ad will run as part of the seven-figure weekly ad buy across Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Priorities USA is on track to spend more than $200 million by the end of this year.
“George Floyd was murdered. Breonna Taylor was murdered. Too many of our Black brothers and sisters have been murdered. Donald Trump’s response yesterday was to order more violence against American citizens to further divide the country because he thinks it makes him look strong,” said Priorities USA Chairman Guy Cecil. “Donald Trump gassed peaceful protestors and clergy so he could use the Bible and a local church as a photo-op to justify his divisive, angry small-mindedness. He’s not decreasing tensions; he’s only making them worse. This is not leadership. This is a lethal combination of hatred, cowardice and narcissism.”
