Jan 6th Capitol riot ring leaders conspire at Willard hotel

Follow the connections between the ringleaders meeting at the Willard hotel ahead of Jan 6 in an effort to overturn election results and the current Republican opposition to subpoenas.

"They were led by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, former chief White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon, former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik, John Eastman, who outlined scenarios for denying Biden the presidency in an Oval Office meeting on Jan. 4 with Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Steve Bannon has been held in contempt of Congress for defying a congressional subpoena by the Jan. 6 select committee investigating the attack on the Capitol. All but nine House Republicans voted against holding Bannon in contempt for defying the select committee’s subpoena. McCarthy has openly threatened that a GOP majority would punish private companies that cooperate with the Jan. 6 probe." - Washington Post

It's hard to keep track of all the events and people involved. This interactive network map connects the dots and also includes a database of the rioters, the script of President Trump's speech on Jan 6th before the rioters attacked the capitol and details on the subpoena served to Bannon.

"The Willard Hotel in D.C. served as a “war room” for Trump and his associates’ efforts to overturn the 2020 election. The effort underscores the extent to which Trump and a handful of true believers were working until the last possible moment to subvert the will of the voters, seeking to pressure Pence to delay or even block certification of the election, leveraging any possible constitutional loophole to test the boundaries of American democracy.

They sought to make the case to Pence and ramp up pressure on him to take actions on Jan. 6 that Eastman suggested were within his powers, three people familiar with the operation said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations. Their activities included finding and publicizing alleged evidence of fraud, urging members of state legislatures to challenge Biden’s victory and calling on the Trump-supporting public to press Republican officials in key states." - Washington Post

What is a network map?

Network maps are also called 'relationship maps' or 'power maps'. They connect people and groups visually to make it easier to see relationships which might be hidden. They also allow readers to easily jump from one person to another, unlike an article which has to be read sequentially. Network maps can also include graphics, links, maps and videos. This relationship map was designed with the free Kumu app. Learn more about how to get pro bono help with network maps for social justice and voting rights projects here.

Use relationship maps to show connections between people and groups.
