Publix Supermarket Heiress Julie Jenkins, Radio Host Alex Jones Provided Majority Of Funds For January 6th Rally That Led To Capitol Insurrection
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Wall Street Journal revealed that major mainstream conservative donors were behind hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding for the January 6, 2021 rally that led or contributed to the death of seven individuals, including three police officers.
The companies and their leaders that supported the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol must be held accountable, not just the Confederate-flag waving criminals caught on camera.
