Pro-Trump Rally Planner Is Cooperating in Justice Dept.'s Jan. 6 Inquiry

Ali Alexander, who was a key figure in the “Stop the Steal” movement, said he had received a grand jury subpoena and would assist the expanding investigation.

Ali Alexander, a prominent organizer of pro-Trump events after the 2020 election, has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department’s investigation of the attack on the Capitol last year, the first high-profile political figure known to have offered assistance to the government’s newly expanded criminal inquiry.

Speaking through a lawyer, Mr. Alexander said on Friday that he had recently received a subpoena from a federal grand jury that is seeking information on several broad categories of people connected to pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington after the election.

In a statement from the lawyer, Mr. Alexander said he was taking “a cooperative posture” with the Justice Department’s investigation but did not know what useful information he could give. He also disavowed anyone who took part in or planned violence on Jan. 6.

5. He hasn't the money to hire a high priced law firm like his co conspirators

He knows he will end up under the bus unless he is one of the first in line to cooperate.

3. Does he have the financial means to fight the DOJ's J6 inquiry?

Just another example of our two-tiered legal system.

4. This is not the 1/6 committee...

This is the DOJ Grand Jury.
