At Least 43 Governors, Senators & Members Of Congress Have Ties To Groups That Fueled January 6th Capitol Coup Attempt
Government watchdog Accountable.US released the second in a series of reports on “Subsidizing Sedition”, a project focused on exposing those who aided and abetted the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021. The latest report – previewed in the American Prospect – found that at least 43 current Governors, elected federal office holders, along with at least 15 members of President Trump’s former administration have direct ties to the right-wing and white nationalist groups that helped plan the Trump rally that preceded the Capitol coup attempt.
Among the key findings of the new report, Turning Point Action was one of the most aggressive organizers of the rally, claiming to have sent “80+ buses full of patriots” to what they promised would be one of the most “consequential” events in U.S. history. At a Turning Point USA-sponsored event just a couple weeks earlier, Q-supporting Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said the Second Amendment “‘has nothing to do with hunting, unless you’re talking about hunting tyrants, maybe.’” This dangerous rhetoric deserves renewed condemnation and accountability now.
