The committee chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, says some worked to stage the rallies and “some appeared to have had direct communication” with then-President Trump as they were planning.

The rallies before and during the Jan. 6 riot are a major focus of the committee’s investigation.

Committee members want to know who financed the events and whether organizers were in close touch with the White House and members of Congress as they planned the events.
