Judge Luttig told the House committee at the close of Thursday’s hearing that he fears former President Trump and his allies may be laying the groundwork to overturn the 2024 election results.

“Former President Trump and his allies are executing that blueprint for 2024 in open and plain view of the public,” Luttig said.

Luttig, who testified on Thursday that the theories put forward by Trump and his allies to reject the 2020 election results were unconstitutional, told lawmakers he viewed the former president as an ongoing threat to democracy.

Trump has spent the year-and-a-half since the 2020 election repeating disproven claims about voter fraud and claiming the election was stolen from him, despite recounts and audits in various states that have validated Joe Biden’s victory. Even some GOP members of the House and Senate have refused to acknowledge Biden legitimately won the election.

Luttig said he was concerned Trump’s election fraud claims may “succeed in 2024 where they failed in 2020.”

“I don’t speak those words lightly,” Luttig said.
