CONCORD, NH — Following reporting from WMUR yesterday that Donald Trump’s deputy state director, Dylan Quattrucci, attended and posted photos from the January 6th Insurrection on the US Capitol, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
"We are outraged by the recent revelations about Dylan Quattrucci, a top Trump New Hampshire campaign official, and his presence at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021. This revelation is particularly troubling as it comes after Trump was seen embracing a formerly incarcerated January 6 rioter on another recent trip to New Hampshire.
“This reporting is a chilling reminder of how MAGA extremism has infiltrated political circles in New Hampshire and how Trump’s continued lies and conspiracies have undermined democracy. Quattrucci's previous work on the campaign of 2022 Congressional Candidate Karoline Leavitt, a far-right Trump acolyte, further amplifies the concern.
“The events of January 6th must never be forgotten or minimized, and those who played any role in them must be held accountable. The January 6th Insurrection was a dark day in our nation's history, a direct assault on our democracy, and Trump’s hiring of Quattrucci is inexcusable.”
One of the posts shows a livestream post with Quattrucci addressing the camera, headlined: "D.C. at the Capitol. Just got tear gassed."
Another shows a hand with a minor abrasion on the pinky finger holding a white cowboy hat. It says, "I’m bleeding for my country. You'll have to kill me to stop my #FightForTrump"
Another post states: "Mike Pence is a traitor to America"
