Defend democracy in the South.


Judge Michael Luttig testifies before the Jan. 6 committee on June 18.

Retired Judge Michael Luttig, who served on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia, testified on June 18 before the House select committee investigating former President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Luttig, a Republican, warned that the independent state legislature theory being promoted by Trump backers is part of a plan to "overturn the 2024 election if Trump or his anointed successor loses."  (Still from C-SPAN video.)
