The Jan. 6 march to the Capitol was stopped at the last minute.

On Jan. 6, 2021, Donald Trump drove tens of thousands of angry people to the Capitol. He knew they had weapons and he knew who they were angry at, but he pushed them there anyway. Some people in Trump’s orbit were worried about publicly endorsing a march or connecting the two events. “March for Trump” was always part of discussions about the events for Jan. 6. Organizers had been holding rallies in support of Donald Trump’s false claims about the election. After impeachment trial, prosecutors noted there was no permit for a march from the White House to Capitol.
