Trump Event Organizer Ali Alexander Says Reps. Gosar, Brooks, And Biggs Helped Plan March That Led to Capitol Riot

Far-right Trump supporter Ali Alexander, a top organizer of the January 6th rally in Washington, D.C. that turned deadly, said he was aided in putting on the event by Republican legislators in Congress.

In a number of Periscope live streams ahead of the march, the “Stop the Steal” organizer claimed that among those assisting him were Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL).

Alexander, formerly Ali Akbar, is no stranger to controversy, and ahead of the rally, he warned that “something bad” might happen to a Washington, D.C. hotel that chose to close its doors to the pro-Trump protesters.

“Let me just tell the media right now: If something bad happens to the Hotel Harrington, don’t ask me to denounce it. I’m not taking your call,” Alexander stated in a video ahead of the march. “If something bad happens to the Hotel Harrington because they violated the civil rights, I’ll call it karma!”
