The "Trump Accountability Project" launched on November 3, its purpose being to "never forget" and "not allow" those who "elected him," "staffed his government," and "funded him" to "profit from their experience."
The group asked for software engineers to help the group "archive a large number of campaign/administration staffer tweets" in order to not let "Trump officials ... hide their records."
New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked on Friday if "[anyone] is archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity [with Trump] in the future." Ocasio-Cortez also mocked "the 'party of personal responsibility' for being upset at the idea of being responsible for their behavior over [the] last four years."
The project's website does not specify who is behind the group. At least two individuals have identified themselves with the group: Michael Simon and Hari Sevugan, both of whom replied to Ocasio-Cortez.
Sevugan, former national press secretary for the Democratic National Committee and former campaign staff for Pete Buttigieg, said to Ocasio-Cortez, "You better believe it."
"We just launched the Trump Accountability Project to make sure anyone who took a paycheck to help Trump undermine America is held responsible for what they did," Sevugan said.
Michael Simon, a former member of Barack Obama's administration, also replied "Yes, we are," to Ocasio-Cortez, posting a link to the Trump Accountability Project.
"Every Administration staffer, campaign staffer, bundler, lawyer who represented them — everyone," Simon said.
