The Washington Post reports:
The House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection issued its third round of subpoenas on Thursday, this time targeting additional organizers of the “Stop the Steal” rally that preceded the violent Capitol insurrection.
The committee already issued subpoenas to 11 individuals affiliated with the planning of pro-Trump rallies before the attack and are now seeking information from right-wing provocateur Ali Alexander, the leader of Stop the Steal, and Nathan Martin, who worked with Alexander and is listed as the representative for “One Nation Under God” on a permit application to rally on Capitol grounds.
Weeks before the Jan. 6 insurrection, Alexander said in a since-deleted video on Periscope that he had planned to put “maximum pressure on Congress” during the vote to certify the electoral college votes, claiming he had help from three GOP lawmakers, Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Paul A. Gosar (Ariz.).
Read the full article. Alexander, formerly Ali Akbar, has gone into hiding since the Capitol riot but continues to beg for donations and promote Bitcoin on his Clubhouse account.

Trump’s recent comments that Bitcoin is a “scam” drew scorn from far-right activists such as conspiracy theorist Laura Loomer & Ali Alexander, so-called Stop the Steal leader, both claiming that the real “scam” was Trump’s support for #COVID19 vaccines.https://t.co/a7tRbMS47o
