As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up, some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and 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.
Rolling Stone separately confirmed a third person involved in the main Jan. 6 rally in D.C. has communicated with the committee. This is the first report that the committee is hearing major new allegations from potential cooperating witnesses. While there have been prior indications that members of Congress were involved, this is also the first account detailing their purported role and its scope. The two sources also claim they interacted with members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who they describe as having had an opportunity to prevent the violence.

And I don't mind telling you, to me, this is positively terrifying.
We suspected something of the sort but that's just the smoking gun.
There are more smoking guns around Donald Trump than the set of Rust could dream about. I just wish SOMETHING would come to fruition sufficiently to put that jackass in the hoosegow.
I totally agree Loren, with both Trump and Borass I'm just hoping for that tipping point when their supporters finally see the light and turn against them. There are small signs that it's beginning to happen with Tory voters.
That would be some news!
