Mo Brooks Denies Planning January 6 Rally

Mo Brooks Denies Planning January 6 Rally

October 25, 2021 at 3:51 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 48 Comments



Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) told the Montgomery Advertiser that he did not help plan a Jan. 6 rally that preceded an attack on the U.S. Capitol that involved the deaths of at least five people and injuries to hundreds more.

Said Brooks: “If you’re talking about someone participating in meetings, setting the agenda, raising the money, I don’t know of anything that suggests my staff as doing that stuff.”

Brooks said he only spoke at the rally because the White House asked him to do so the day before.


Political Wire:

Brooks did plan ahead to wear body armor to the rally.

“As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up, some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol,” Rolling Stone reports.

“Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and detailed explosive allegations 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.”

“Rolling Stone separately confirmed a third person involved in the main Jan. 6 rally in D.C. has communicated with the committee. This is the first report that the committee is hearing major new allegations from potential cooperating witnesses. While there have been prior indications that members of Congress were involved, this is also the first account detailing their purported role and its scope. The two sources also claim they interacted with members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who they describe as having had an opportunity to prevent the violence.”

A container fire aboard a freight ship off Victoria continued to burn Sunday, after response vessels spent the night cooling the boat's hull itself with water.

But responders could not douse the flames directly because of the chemicals in the MV Zim Kingston's burning cargo, the Canadian Coast Guard said on Sunday morning.

"Due to the nature of chemicals onboard the container ship, applying water directly to the fire is not an option," the federal agency said in a tweet just after 9 a.m. PT on Sunday.
