Conservative group launches own fact-checking website on January 6

Ohe day the January 6 committee hearings began, the American Conservative Union launched a website to post information about the attack.

The site, J6Facts.org, was created to “debunk the lies spouted by corrupt members of the January 6 Committee”, according to a Twitter account of the same name. This Twitter account also apparently launched on Thursday, posting its first tweet that day. According to this report, the account has 239 followers.

“It’s a place to go and get the facts,” explained ACU President Matt Schlapp. He also claimed that it would be run by political operatives.

Schlapp, who is also responsible for organizing the Conservative Political Action Conference, shared a tweet from Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson who railed against the site.

“It would be a shame [if] CPAC’s pro-Trump propaganda account [J6 Facts] became filled with real facts 1/6,” Wilson said. “A fucking shame.”

“Thanks for taking [Rick Wilson] I’m so glad you’re still trying to keep up,” Schlapp replied.

In a similar vein, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) accused the committee of trying to block former President Donald Trump from running again. Their hearings come 18 months after the riots. They reportedly had over 140,000 documents and over 470 tips via their phone line to sift through.
