Rally Organizers Say They Participated in “Dozens” of Planned Briefings With GOP Lawmakers Prior to the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot

According to Rolling Stone, there were two individuals who claimed they helped assist members of Congress and the White House plan the violent pro-Trump rallies prior to the January 6 capitol riot.

In a report that was published yesterday, the two unidentified individuals were described as the “rally organizer” and the “planner.”

The two indivuals are allegedly speaking with the House Select Committee who are investigating the Jan. 6 attack.

Before Trump’s rally on January 6, the sources said they attended “dozens” of planning briefings. After the demonstration, protestors marched to the Capitol, where they became violent, overpowered Capitol Police, and stormed the building, disrupting the Electoral College vote counting by a joint session of Congress. The violence resulted in the deaths of five people.

The report named GOP Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar, Lauren Boebert, Mo Brooks, Madison Cawthorn, Andy Biggs, and Louie Gohmert as those who either participated in the work or sent top staffers.

The two sources Rolling Stone that Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, was also involved in the conversations leading up to the Jan. 6 riot.

“Meadows was 100 percent made aware of what was going on,” one of the planners said, adding that he was “a frequent figure in these relatively tiny groups of national organizers.”

Meadows was also concerned that the “Stop the Steal” rally could turn violent.

The Jan. 6 panel called Meadows to testify and said that he is “so far, engaging with the Select Committee.”

According to Rolling Stone, Gosar suggested a “blanket pardon” for those organizing the protests, with one of the two sources claiming, “our impression was that it was a done deal.”

The source added, “That he’d spoken to the president about it in the Oval … in a meeting about pardons and that our names came up. They were working on submitting the paperwork and getting members of the House Freedom Caucus to sign on as a show of support.”

According to the source, Gosar gave “several assurances” in regards to the pardon.

Greene’s office sent a statement to The Hill in response to Rolling Stone’s allegation, claiming that the congresswoman and her staff were entirely focused on objecting to the Electoral College vote’s certification and “had nothing to do with the planning of any protest.”

Democratic lawmakers “tried to prevent President Trump’s election win from being certified,” she said.

“No one cares about Jan. 6 when gas prices are skyrocketing, grocery store shelves are empty, unemployment is skyrocketing, businesses are going bankrupt, our border is being invaded, children are forced to wear masks, vaccine mandates are getting workers fired, and 13 members of our military are murdered by the Taliban and Americans are left stranded in Afghanistan,” her office added.

The two Rolling Stone sources informed the magazine that they have been in contact with the panel on an informal basis so far, but that they intend to testify in front of a public audience.

“I have no problem openly testifying,” one of the sources said.

  1. The sheer magnitude of the national popular vote number, compared to individual state vote totals, is much more robust against “pure insanity,” deception, and manipulation.

    Now we need to support professional election officials and candidates and lawmakers who support voting rights and respect election results, and guarantee the presidency to the candidate who wins the most popular votes in the country, by making every vote in every state matter and count equally, by supporting the National Popular Vote bill and state legislators in states with the 75 more electoral votes needed to enact it.

    If as few as 11,000 voters in Arizona (11 electors), 12,000 in Georgia (16), and 22,000 in Wisconsin (10) had not voted for Biden, or partisan officials did not certify the actual counts — Trump would have won despite Biden’s nationwide lead of more than 7 million.
    The Electoral College would have tied 269-269.
    Congress, with only 1 vote per state, would have decided the election, regardless of the popular vote in any state or throughout the country.

    It’s because of current state-by-state statewide winner-take-all laws for Electoral College votes, not mentioned, much less endorsed, in the Constitution.

    In 2016, Trump became President even though Clinton won the national popular vote by 2,868,686 votes.
    Trump won the Presidency because he won Michigan by 11,000 votes, Wisconsin by 23,000 votes, and Pennsylvania by 44,000 votes.
    Each of these 78,000 votes was 36 times more important than Clinton’s nationwide lead of 2,868,686 votes.

    537 popular votes won Florida and the White House for Bush in 2000, despite Gore’s lead of 537,179 (1,000 times more) popular votes nationwide.

    The National Popular Vote bill is states with 270+ electoral votes agreeing to award their electoral votes to the winner of the most national popular votes.

    All votes would be valued equally in presidential elections, no matter where voters live.

    Before states began enacting new voter suppression and election subversion laws, the system with 2020 election laws meant that the winning 2024 candidate “may need a national popular vote win of 5 percentage points or more in order to squeak out an electoral college victory. Only once has the margin of popular vote victory been that large since Bill Clinton’s re-election,” Jacob Long

    “If Republicans are building the infrastructure to subvert an election — to make it possible to overturn results or keep Democrats from claiming electoral votes — then we have to expect that given a chance, they’ll use it.” – Jamelle Bouie

    When presidential candidates, who more Americans vote for, lose the Electoral College, the situation is unsustainable. This is how a government loses its legitimacy.
