A new dark money group with ties to Democrats known as the 65 Project is attempting to disbar more than 100 lawyers who worked on former President Donald Trump's post-election lawsuits.

The 65 Project describes itself as "a bipartisan effort to protect democracy from abuse of the legal system by holding accountable lawyers who engage in fraudulent and malicious lawsuits," according to its website, which said it was given its name after an "army of Big Lie Lawyers filed 65 lawsuits based on lies to overturn the election."

The group has already filed 10 ethics complaints against lawyers who are or have previously worked for Trump, including attorney Jenna Ellis, one of the most prominent faces of post-Election Day 2020 legal efforts to reverse President Joe Biden's win. The complaint mentioning Ellis lists several other attorneys she worked alongside, including Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, and Sidney Powell, who recently received a complaint from a standing committee of the State Bar of Texas over her election-related challenges in Michigan.


Nine other attorneys are already facing complaints from the 65 Project for either representing the former president or supporting his attempts to overturn the 2020 election. Other complaints surround Georgia lawyer William Calhoun, who said he was proud of his involvement at the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol and was denied bail after a judge determined he was a threat to the community.
