High-powered group is working to disbar over 100 lawyers who helped Trump undermine 2020 election

A dark money group with ties to top Democratic Party operatives plans to spend millions of dollars to expose disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on Donald Trump’s post-2020 election lawsuits, Axios reports.

The 65 Project plans to begin filing complaints this week and will air ads in battleground states. It hopes to deter right-wing legal talent from signing on to any future GOP efforts to overturn elections — including the midterms or 2024.

David Brock, who founded Media Matters for America and the super PAC American Bridge 21st Century and is a Hillary Clinton ally and prolific fundraiser for Democrats, is advising the group.

The 65 Project is targeting 111 attorneys in 26 states who were involved to some degree in efforts to challenge or reverse 2020 election results. They include lawyers at large national law firms with many partners and clients and lawyers at smaller, regional firms.
