Hon. J. Michael Luttig served for nearly fifteen years as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Among other positions, he has also served as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Office of Legal Counsel and as General Counsel to The Boeing Company. The open letter circulated by Vice President Pence on January 6, 2021, quoted Judge Luttig’s assertion that “[t]he only responsibility and power of the Vice President under the Constitution is to faithfully count the Electoral College votes as they have been cast,” and not “to alter in any way the votes that have been cast, either by rejecting certain votes or otherwise.” On June 16, 2022, Judge Luttig testified before the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack, to the effect that President Trump and his allies had “instigated” a war on democracy. He was also one of the authors of LOST NOT STOLEN: The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election, issued in July 2022.
