Katrina Pierson, a former Trump campaign official, was reportedly involved in organizing the January 5th and 6th rallies and was in direct communication with the former president about the rallies.
The 1/6 Committee looks at the rallies related to the attack on the Capitol.
What is interesting is that the committee wants to hear from rally organizers who communicated with Trump. The committee is clearly investigating whether the rallies were used to organize and draw a crowd into the Capitol to try to overthrow the election.
The committee connects the dots. Republican history has it that the rally and the attack were accidental. The two were not related. There were just a few people in a crowd who “acted like tourists”.
The 1/6 committee is looking at something that was possibly much more sinister. The question is whether the rally was held to attack masses of Trump supporters.
The answer to that question will show how deep and detailed Trump’s sedition plan went.
