A pair of Trump supporters who helped plan and organize rallies in and around Washington DC prior to the Capitol riot, claim to have attended meetings with certain members of Congress.
Rolling Stone spoke to two January 06 organizers, both of whom have been granted anonymity by Congressional investigators. The pair have accused several pro-Trump members of Congress of helping them to overturn the election and organizing events that led to the riot. These members include, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks, Madison Cawthorn, Andy Biggs, and Louie Gohmert.
“I remember Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically,” the organizer said. “I remember talking to probably close to a dozen other members at one point or another, or their staffs.”
These same two sources are also alleged to have helped plan demonstrations in multiple states prior to the election and the events at the Capitol.
“We would talk to Boebert’s team, Cawthorn’s team, Gosar’s team like back to back to back,” the organizer continued.
Gosar – who is one of the most extreme Trump supporters in Congress, and of the January 06 riot – has been accused by the pair of offering the possibility of pardons to the organizers.
“Our impression was that it was a done deal,” the organizer said. “That he’d spoken with the president about it in the Oval office, in meetings 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.”
“I would have done it either way, with or without the pardon. I do truly believe in this country, but to use something like that and put that out on the table when someone is so desperate, it’s really not good business.”
He believes in his country so much that he’s willing to believe the election was rigged, based on the rantings of an egotistical con man, who’s attorney’s failed multiple times to present any evidence for their claims in court – further humiliating themselves doing press conferences where they also failed to back up their claims – and then physically act on those claims by attempting to overturn a democratic election by force. Yeah, he sounds like a real patriot.
Nick Dyer, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s communication director, claimed via email that Greene was only involved in planning to object to Joe Biden’s certification. “Congresswoman Greene and her staff were focused on the Congressional election objection on the House floor and had nothing to do with planning of any protest,” he wrote.
Dyer also compared Green’s attempt to object to Biden’s victory with the so-called objections the anti-american Democrats had over Trump’s 2016 election, when they stormed into the Senate with pitch forks and nooses, ready to hang vice president Biden if he didn’t declare Obama the winner.
“She ( Greene ) objected just like Democrats who have objected to Republican presidential victories over the years,” Dyer said in the email. “Just like in 2017, when Jim McGovern, Jamie Raskin, Pramila Jayapal, Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson, Raul Grijalva, and Maxine Waters tried to prevent president Trump’s election win from being certified.
It should be noted that none of them incited a mob to storm the Capitol and Congress, desperate to keep a narcissistic con man in power.
Dyer also wrote in the email that real Americans are more concerned about Biden’s socialist agenda than the Republican party’s contempt for democracy, or about dying from a virus ( again, I can’t stress this enough, that has taken the lives of over a half a million people in the U.S. ) because they refuse to get vaccinated. Conservatives would rather die for the sake of partisan politics – to own the libs – than use the God damn common sense they were born with, and get the vaccine. And as a result, they’re risking their own lives and risking the health and lives of others, including their family members and relatives.
“No one cares about Jan. 6,” he wrote peevishly, “when gas prices are skyrocketing, 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 thirteen members of our military are murdered by the Taliban and Americans are left stranded in Afghanistan.”
“The reason I’m talking to the committee and the reason it’s so important is that – despite Republicans refusing to participate – this commission’s all we got as far as being able to uncover the truth about what happened at the Capitol that day,” the organizer said. “It’s clear that’s lot of bad actors set out to cause chaos… they made us all look like shit.”
They named Trump as one of those bad actors that made them “all look like shit,” but they also made it quite clear that they still believe in his agenda, which is an indication of how intelligent they are. After allowing a con man to make them look like shit, instead of being angry, they’re still willing to hold hands with him and sing Kumbaya.
