“Alternative History” of Capital Storm
CNN said on Thursday that the march on Saturday was expected to attract less people than the attack on Congress on January 6, in which participants may have been armed.
The demonstration in Washington was organized by Matt Brainard, a former member of Donald Trump’s election staff. The march was called “Justice for J6” (January 6). The Associated Press reports that Brainard, who joined Trump’s Look Ahead in the United States after the 2020 election, sought to present an “alternative story” to the attack on Capitol and called the arrested participants “political prisoners.”
Brainard is spreading misinformation about last year’s presidential election results and raising funds for Trump’s campaign. Participating in this endeavor allowed him to earn at least $ 230,000 – AP writes.
Trump did not officially endorse Saturday’s march, but released a message saying those involved in the attack on Congress in January were “persecuted very unjustly.”
After the attack on Capitol, most Americans – 90 percent. – It is estimated that participants in these events will be held accountable. At the end of August, a special delegation to investigate the January 6 attack began its investigation.
