The Washington Post reports: ‘The House Jan. 6 committee’s members and staff deserve praise for their masterfully executed hearings made for the YouTube era. Among the most gripping moments last week was the appearance of former judge and respected conservative lawyer J. Michael Luttig, who advised Mike Pence in the lead-up to Jan. 6.

‘Luttig’s written statement Thursday began with an ominous line: “A stake was driven through the heart of American democracy on January 6, 2021, and our democracy today is on a knife’s edge.” For those who want to move on, Luttig warned, “The settlement of this war over our democracy is necessary to the settlement of any war that will ever come to America, whether from her shores or to her shores.” And he made clear it’s up to Republicans to end it: “Though disinclined for the moment, as a political matter of fact only the party that instigated this war over our democracy can bring an end to that war.’
