Virgin Islands Rep. Stacey Plaskett on Thursday reminded Republican senators that Trump supporters had vowed to "destroy the GOP" in the run-up to the fatal January 6th insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
Rep. Plaskett reminded the Senate of the December 12th rally that was organized by Women for America First -- the same group that organized the rally on the day of the insurrection.
Plaskett noted that Trump did not attend that rally, but tweeted his support.
She played a video of right-wing activist Nick Fuentes leading the crowd in chants of "destroy the GOP."
Plaskett played a video of a street brawl following the rally.
"What you just saw was the violence that ensued after that rally," she explained. "The Proud Boys, after that rally, engaged in serious acts of violence in downtown D.C."
"Some Trump supporters and self-identified Proud Boys vandalized churches after that rally," she explained. "If we look at these events, it's clear how we got here because what did the president do after that? He turned right around and a little over a week later he began coordinating the January 6th 'Save America' rally with the same people who had planned the second 'Million MAGA march.'"
