Latest News about Elise Stefanik

Elise Stefanik Aligns with Trump’s “Hostage” Rhetoric on Jan. 6 Defendants

Former President Donald Trump and Rep. Elise Stefanik have referred to the federal criminal defendants from the Jan. 6 Capitol attack as “hostages,” drawing criticism. However, it’s essential to note that the comparison has been offensive to some relatives of hostages taken during the Oct. 7 Hamas attack on Israel. The majority of those charged in connection with the Capitol attack, especially those facing misdemeanors, have been released pending trial. Those currently incarcerated have often pleaded guilty or been found guilty by juries, while others are held pretrial due to concerns about public safety, pre-trial violations, or flight risk.

“They ought to release the J6 hostages. They’ve suffered,” Trump said over the weekend. “I call them hostages. Some people call them prisoners. I call them hostages. Release the J6 hostages, Joe. Release them Joe. You can do it real easy, Joe”

Rep. Elise Stefanik, the current No. 4 member of House GOP leadership, has aligned herself with former President Trump’s rhetoric, referring to Jan. 6 criminal defendants as “hostages.” This assertion follows her rise to the position after Liz Cheney’s removal for criticizing Trump’s actions related to the Capitol attack. Despite Stefanik expressing concerns about the treatment of these individuals, her office did not respond to requests for clarification on which specific Jan. 6 criminal defendants she believes are being held as “hostages.”

During a speech three years ago, on January 6, 2021, Representative Elise Stefanik of New York stated that the rioters should face prosecution “to the fullest extent of the law.”
