"Stop the Steal" organizer Ali Alexander says three Republican lawmakers helped him put together the protest in Washington, D.C., that turned into a Capitol riot.

The Washington Post reports Alexander, a right-wing activist that has repeated President Donald Trump's baseless claims of widespread election fraud, said in a since-deleted video on Periscope that Reps. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Mo Brooks of Alabama, and Paul A. Gosar of Arizona helped organize the Jan. 6 event during Congress' vote to certify the Electoral College votes in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.

"We four schemed up of putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting," Alexander said, adding that they planned to "change the hearts and the minds of Republicans who were in that body, hearing our loud roar from outside."
