According to an exclusive article published in Rolling Stone magazine October 24, 2021, two people who helped plan and organize the violent January 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, and who have already spoken to the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection, have named members of Congress involved in planning the attack.
One of them was CD-3 House Representative Lauren Boebert, who represents Colorado’s western slope.
According to Rolling Stone, the planners allege 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.”
Along with Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Georgia), the planners say House members who either personally joined in conversations to organize the event, or had their top staffers join in the conversations, included Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).
One of the organizers told Rolling Stone that “We would talk to Boebert’s team, Cawthorn’s team, Gosar’s team like back to back to back to back.”
Rolling Stone says it “separately obtained documentary evidence that both sources were in contact with Gosar and Boebert on Jan. 6,” but says “We are not describing the nature of that evidence to preserve [the anonymity of the planners].”
The two planners pointed to the archived website of WildProtest.com, an event that took place January 6th at the Capitol that was aimed at stopping Congress from certifying the Electoral College results, to show that Boebert was listed as a featured speaker at the event. The website of WildProtest.com displays the hashtags “#DoNotCertify,” “#Jan6,” “#StopTheSteal” and “#WildProtest” at the top of the page.
