Women For America First Organizers Must Testify About Pre-Riot Communications With Donald Trump
Women For America First was one of the leading organizers of the rally and protest that turned into a riot and attempted coup in Washington D.C. in January. Now, the two women at the head of the organization will have to speak to Congress about the communications they had with the then-president leading up to the event.
The Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol issued a news release and copies of the subpoena letters to each of 11 individuals connected to the Trump Campaign and the rally.
Among others, these include Katrina Pierson, a former Trump spokesperson who reportedly communicated with the then-president about the rallies on January 5th and 6th, eight individuals who were listed on rally permit paperwork in roles ranging from stage manager to communications, and the two founders at the top of Women For America First.
WFAF held the original permit for the event, and founders Kylie Kremer and Amy Kremer are both on the list of subpoena recipients. Both are ordered to testify about communication with Trump in advance of the rally and riot.
“According to press reports, you, and others working with you and WFAF to organize the January 6th rally, collectively communicated with President Trump, White House officials including Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and others about the rally and other events planned to coincide with the certification of the 2020 Electoral College results. Accordingly, the Select Committee seeks both documents and your deposition testimony regarding these and other matters that are within the scope of the Select COmmittee’s inquiry.”
The aforementioned Mark Meadows has also been ordered to produce documents and appear at a deposition in the near future.
