The Republican Accountability Project (RAP), formerly Republican Voters Against Trump, launched a new online scorecard for members of Congress. It takes into account how much of the president's efforts to overturn the 2020 election results individual members bought into, as well as whether they supported Trump's impeachment after the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.

Overall, 136 Republicans in the House and Senate received grades of F from the group.

"Our Capitol was attacked by a mob that believed that the 2020 election was being stolen. They were encouraged by the lies and actions of President Trump and many Republican members of Congress. In the name of accountability, it’s vitally important we remember which Congressional Republicans stood with democracy and the Constitution, and which did not," reads the website.

"The attackers were directly incited by Trump and the overwhelming majority of Republicans in Congress who had been falsely claiming, for months—and in the immediate moments before the attack—that the election had been stolen from Trump," it continues. "This was the lie that motivated the attack on the Capitol. We cannot allow it to persist. It erodes Americans’ faith in the integrity of our electoral system."

Most GOP members of Congress scored a B- or below on the report card due to the small number that ended up supporting the former president's impeachment, thought that number does include some prominent Republicans including Cheney and Sen. Bill CassidyBill CassidyCassidy on pipeline cyberattack: Congress must equip businesses with defenses against incursions Sunday shows preview: Coronavirus dominates as White House continues to push vaccination effort The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Emergent BioSolutions - Upbeat jobs data, relaxed COVID-19 restrictions offer rosier US picture MORE (R-La.), who like Cheney received an A.

Republicans who assisted or spoke favorably about the former president's efforts to overturn the 2020 election have been the subject of sustained criticism since the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, which left 5 dead and dozens of police officers injured.

Some media networks and cable news hosts have also faced criticism for conducting interviews with Republicans who sought to cast doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election or signed on to the efforts to block the certification of the Electoral College results, with critics arguing that such lawmakers are not being held to account or questioned about their actions in the weeks leading up to the violence.
