A new bombshell report published by RollingStone is naming several congressional Republicans as”co-conspirators” in Donald Trump’s attempt to usurp the presidency by unleashing a mob of supporters into the capitol to force then-Vice President Mike Pence to annul the 2020 election which was won by Democrat Joe Biden.
Citing three sources with knowledge of the planning, the news outlet detailed “explosive allegations that multiple members of Congress were intimately involved in planning both Trump’s efforts to overturn his election loss and the Jan. 6 events that turned violent.”
The lawmakers named by the sources include Reps Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) Paul Gosar (R-AZ) Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Mo Brooks (R-AL), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
The sources told RollingStone that the MAGA lawmakers participated in “dozens of planning briefings ahead of that day when Trump supporters broke into the Capitol as his election loss to President Joe Biden was being certified.”
Rep. Paul Gosar reportedly brought up the prospect of a “blanket pardon” to encourage them to plan the protests, one source told RollingStone.
Along with the Trump-loving lawmakers, witnesses named several members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who “played a major role” in the conversations surrounding the insurrection, and Katrina Pierson, who worked for Trump’s campaign in 2016 and 2020, “as a key liaison between the organizers of protests against the election and the White House.”
According to the report, the witnesses “plan to present to the committee allegations about how these demonstrations were funded and to detail communications between organizers and the White House.
