GOP group blasts Republicans who promote 'lies, violence and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories'

A new ad from an anti-Trump Republican group attacks the former president's allies in Congress, urging voters to reject some members of a party that peddles "lies, violence and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories." 

The roughly 60-second spot, by the Republican Accountability Project, features a clip of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthyKevin McCarthyTech antitrust bills create strange bedfellows in House markup Equilibrium — Presented by NextEra Energy — A new final frontier: Washing dirty laundry in space White House uses Trump's words praising China to slam McCarthy's Biden criticism MORE (R-Calif.) declaring that former President TrumpDonald TrumpIran claims U.S. to lift all oil sanctions but State Department says 'nothing is agreed' Ivanka Trump, Kushner distance themselves from Trump claims on election: CNN Overnight Defense: Joint Chiefs chairman clashes with GOP on critical race theory | House bill introduced to overhaul military justice system as sexual assault reform builds momentum MORE "won this election" and one of Rep.

The spot will appear during Fox News's prime-time lineup starting next week, HuffPost reported.


It also takes aim at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) for promoting unfounded conspiracy theories about "Jewish space lasers" causing California wildfires. 

The ad then praises Republicans like House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz CheneyElizabeth (Liz) Lynn CheneyTrump clash ahead: Ron DeSantis positions himself as GOP's future in a direct-mail piece Trump has 'zero desire' to be Speaker, spokesman says Liz Cheney hired security after death threats: report MORE (Wyo.) and Adam KinzingerAdam Daniel KinzingerKinzinger: Conspiracy theory FBI planned Jan. 6 example of 'legacy of Trump and Trumpism' Cheney rips Arizona election audit: 'It is an effort to subvert democracy' Why the Democrats need Joe Manchin MORE (Ill.) for standing up to Trump and rebuking his allies within their caucus.

Cheney and Kinzinger were among 10 House Republicans to vote in favor of impeaching Trump for a second time, charging him with inciting an insurrection on Jan. 6 after he told supporters to march to the Capitol to contest the official counting of the Electoral College votes that affirmed President Biden's victory in the 2020 election.

The vote nearly cost Cheney her leadership position in Congress as conference chair. Kinzinger said he believed his vote likely meant the end of his political career.

While McCarthy at first placed blame on Trump for the Capitol riot, he remained steadfast in opposing impeachment and later met with Trump at the former president's Mar-a-Largo club. McCarthy also later placed blame on the insurrection on "everybody across this country."

"To save the soul of the Republican Party, we must stand up for those who act with integrity and against the ones that lie," the ad says. 

The Republican Accountability Project is an offshoot of Defending Democracy Together, another anti-Trump conservative group.
