Saturday rally organizer seeks to rewrite January 6 history
WASHINGTON (AP) – The architect of a protest in Washington scheduled for Saturday that aims to rewrite the history of January’s violent assault on the United States Capitol is not a household name.
Matt Braynard worked as an analyst for the Republican Party, analyzed data from a small election firm, and then started a consulting firm that attracted few federal clients, records show. He started a nonprofit after being fired by Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016 after several months on the job, but struggled to raise funds. The group’s tax-exempt status was revoked last year.
