Pro-Trump dark money groups organized the rally that led to deadly Capitol Hill riot - 2021-01-09
A web of pro-Trump dark money groups helped organize the rally that led to a deadly riot on Capitol Hill.
During the rally on Wednesday, President Donald Trump encouraged his supporters to march to the steps of Congress to protest the results of the Electoral College vote that certified Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election.
"We're going to walk down to the Capitol and we're going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women and we're probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them," Trump said at the rally just in front of the White House before the riot started. After the rally, Trump supporters marched to the steps of Congress and broke into the U.S. Capitol building.
