Those associated with the election campaign of the outgoing US President Donald Trump were instrumental in organizing the rally in Washington that launched a deadly attack in the US Capitol. This was revealed in the review of records done by Associated Press.
Trump’s pro-NGO Women for America First organized a Save America rally on January 6 in the Ellipse, a union-owned land near White Haas, but more than six such people were on the list of approvals given by the National Park Service , Who was a staff worker and had been paid thousands of dollars by Trump’s 2020 election campaign just weeks before. In addition, many people present at the scene during the demonstration have close ties with the White House.
Violence erupted in the Capitol (US Parliament House) due to Trump’s speeches alleging rigging in the election results and earlier comments. The House of Representatives then passed an impeachment motion against Trump. Trump is the first president in US history to be impeached for the second time.
When Women for America First was asked who gave financial support for the rally and what Trump’s campaign was involved in, it did not respond to these messages. Thousands of people attended this rally. Trump’s publicity campaign said in a statement that it did not conduct the ceremony or provide financial support to it and that no member of the campaign was involved in organizing the rally.
The statement said that if a former worker or someone independently associated with the campaign attended the rally, he did not do so on the instructions of the Trump campaign. Megan Powers was among the managers of the program that took place on January 6. According to her LinkedIn profile, she was associated with Trump’s campaign in January 2021. He did not answer any questions raised in this regard.
According to the AP review, the approval given for the rally mentions at least three people associated with Trump’s campaign who have tried to disassociate themselves from the demonstration. They have locked or locked their social media profiles and removed rally related tweets.
