‘Stop The Steal’ Founder Complains January 6th Committee Won’t Give Him A Platform For Election Complaints

Ali Alexander, who headed the ‘Stop the Steal’ movement to spread conspiracy theories about a “stolen” election says he will be in D.C. today to talk to officials about the events of January 6th, but he won’t be appearing at the live hearing — and he stands out in a moment when many Trump-aligned individuals are trying to avoid testimony, because he seems to actually be upset about that.

WASHINGTON, DC – DECEMBER 09: Stop the Steal organizer Ali Alexander takes a sip of water as he returns to a conference room for a deposition meeting on Capitol Hill with the House select committee investigating the January 6th attack on December 09, 2021 in Washington, DC.

In a missive sent to Politico‘s Kyle Cheney, Alexander lays out complaints against a few entities: the January 6th Committee for not having him testify at a public hearing; fact-checking site Snopes for reporting on his role; and Twitter for kicking him off so that he can’t “rebut these conspiracy theories.”

Alexander, who posted a message on his Telegram account shortly after the announcement of a surprise hearing, saying that he’d be heading to D.C. today, blames reporting at Snopes for spreading the “conspiracy theory” that he might be the surprise witness (who has already been revealed as Cassidy Hutchinson), though the fact-checkers merely reported that this was an unconfirmed rumor.

“We’re still in the process of researching the veracity of this unconfirmed rumor and will update this story again soon.”

As for Twitter, Business Insider reports that Alexander was banned after he posted, on January 6th 2021, a video of himself saying, “I don’t disavow this.”

His chief complaint, however, seems to be the Committee itself, and the refusal to provide him with a platform to share his views on the election fraud that he claims took place.

“On at least four occasions, my legal counsel asked the Committee to allow my deposition to be taken publicly so that the American people could operate from a shared set of facts.”

He claims the Committee is “hiding” testimony that he says exonerates Members of Congress, and that separates his “peaceful rallies” from the riotous attack, seeming to echo Donald Trump’s claims that the Committee isn’t presenting his “side.”

Alexander testified Friday before a Justice Department Grand Jury, as previously reported, and he does not clarify in his missive whether the officials he’s speaking to on Tuesday are with the Justice Department, the House Select Committee, or some other entity entirely.
