Neither McGee nor Hicks immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.

The Lincoln Project defended the tweet after Twitter removed it for violating its guidelines.

“Donald Trump’s encouragement to harassment [sic] American democracy is undemocratic, potentially dangerous, and counterproductive. Whatever you think of the government’s legal arguments, it is immoral to seek the sanctity of our elections [and] ineffective, “wrote the PAC.

The Lincoln Project also instructed Twitter users to create a LinkedIn account exclusively for law firm employees at Jones Day and Porter Wright, asking them how to work for an organization that is trying to do the will of the overthrow American people. “The account then posted screenshots of messages from users who followed the instructions.


The Lincoln Project’s call to its supporters to get in touch with McGee and Hicks comes after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others promoted the creation of an obvious blacklist of people who helped Trump during his tenure.

“Does anyone archive these Trump sycophants if they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” asked the progressive congressman on Friday. “I see a good chance of many deleted tweets, fonts and photos in the future.”

In an overt response to criticism, she tweeted, “Lol from the Personal Responsibility Party is upset at the idea of ​​being responsible for their behavior for the past four years.”


In places marked as “unavailable”, two Democratic activists responded by promoting the “Trump Accountability Project,” which aims to prevent Trump employees from taking advantage of time in his administration. The tweets were from Emily Abrams, a former adviser to presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, and Michael Simon, who worked on Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Former high-ranking Obama campaign spokesman Hari Sevugan tweeted Tuesday that he “supports the idea of ​​keeping the records and ensuring that officials who are actively damaging American democracy cannot benefit from the experience.”

“We should welcome our fellow American citizens with whom we differ politically,” the group said on the website. “But those who received a paycheck from the Trump administration shouldn’t benefit from their efforts to tear our democracy apart.”

CNN host Jake Tapper has also been criticized for saying Trump supporters should be concerned about “how future employers might view this.” [their] Character defined during adversity. “The President’s campaign continues to challenge battlefield states with highly competitive results that ended in victory for President-elect Joe Biden.

Biden called on the two parties to unite during a Saturday speech after being named the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
