‘Stop the Steal’ organizer says he is cooperating with DOJ investigation of Capitol riot

Ali Alexander has been subpoenaed by a grand jury and has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department’s investigation of the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Alexander was a key piece in the “Stop the Steal” movement that occurred just after the presidential election.

According to CNN, he is the first high-profile person to cooperate with the government in this investigation. Alexander’s lawyers released a statement saying, “the subpoena says that I’m not a target but wants information about the ‘Women for America First’ ‘Save America March’ event that preceded the riot.”

He said, “I don’t believe I have information that will be useful to them but I’m cooperating as best I can further reiterating that I’m not a target because I did nothing wrong. I denounce anyone who planned to subvert my permitted event and the other permitted events of that day on Capitol grounds to stage any counterproductive activities.”

Alexander had previously handed over thousands of text messages to the House select committee. He has become a central figure for investigators to understand how the rallies on January 6th were funded, organized, promoted, and what eventually led to the riot.

Alexander said, “I’m going to go in there and cooperate where I can, where I can’t I’ll invoke my constitutional rights. We’ve got tons of evidence for them.”

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE before moving to Sioux Falls, SD to attend college at Augustana University. This past May I graduated from Augustana with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Biology with an emphasis in Allied Health. I first discovered FBA through my involvement with Turning Point USA where I worked as a Campus Coordinator in college. I have a passion for politics and activism, and was drawn to FBA’s dedication to spreading the truth. Unbiased news is rare in today’s society, so I wanted to be a part of FBA’s mission to change that.
