As much as $3 million may have been raised to support the Jan. 6 rally in Washington, D.C., that preceded the attack on the Capitol, according to interviews and documents reviewed by ProPublica, with some money flowing to Republican dark-money groups that helped bring crowds to the event. Caroline Wren, a former top fundraiser for the Trump campaign, managed distribution of some of the money raised to support the rally. She told one associate that she sent funds to a number of political organizations backing the event. Dustin Stockton, a Republican operative who helped organize the rally, told ProPublica he met with Wren at the Willard Hotel in Washington on the evening of Jan. 5. At that meeting, Stockton said, Wren boasted of having raised $3 million to support the rally.

She should be in jail for financing an insurrection. Money in politics, at all levels, is destroying our nation, this was a dirDonors whould neverect attack on our democracy with funds gained from "anonymous" donors. Donors to political endeavors should never be allowed to hide behind anonymity. You want to sponsor a coup then your name should be right there for anyone to see.
