Insurrection Reunion at Trump Doral Will Include Gaetz

Amy Kremer‘s Women For America First was the group behind the “Save America” rally on January 6th that led to the attack on the Capitol. Now Kremer is holding an event this weekend at Trump’s Doral property in Florida. Speakers at this “insurrection reunion” include a Who’s Who of who supported the effort to overturn the election: Marjorie Taylor Greene, Rand Paul, and Louie Gohmert have all been previously announced.

But a dubious last-minute addition was made on Tuesday when the Women For America First sent an email to registrants of the “Save America Summit” to break the news that troubled Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz will speak Friday night.

Gaetz quote-tweeted Women For America’s Twitter announcement, adding “Join me at the Trump Doral!” as if he’s not about to be arrested in connection with an alleged sex trafficking ring along with his associate Joel Greenberg.

It might not make immediate sense why the group would invite the congressman to their summit. After all, he’s acknowledged that he’s under federal investigation, reportedly for potentially having had sex with a 17-year-old girl. But Gaetz himself has taken the investigation in stride, denying all wrongdoing and even fundraising off of the spotlight.

“We are aware of the controversy surrounding Congressman Gaetz,” Kremer said in a statement. “We know firsthand what it is like to be treated unfairly by the mainstream media. We know that partisan political witch hunts are standard operating procedure for many in the media. We believe that you are innocent until proven guilty.”

The event begins Thursday and ends Sunday, and will also feature former acting ICE director Thomas Homan, former acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan, and Jack Posobiec, the far-right activist now working for One America News Network. The Former Guy has not made any announcements as to whether or not he might appear.
