Linda McMahon led PAC donated money to group behind Capitol Building Riots. The insurgency bid was made in an attempt to prevent Trump from vacating office.
Donald Trump is in the news for all the wrong reasons once again. The outgoing United States President sparked a coup attempt by asking his supporters to go rally outside the Capitol Building; a last bid attempt to protest the results of the Electoral College vote certifying Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 election.
Riots broke out while his supporters attempted to take over the building. Five people, including a police officer, have been declared dead so far. The city was put under a 12 hour curfew immediately while Facebook, temporarily, and Twitter, permanently, banned him.

According to CNBC, the rally, officially known as the “March to Save America,” was largely organized by a 501(c)(4) group known as Women for America First. The Non Profit Organization are allowed to engage in limited political activities by the IRS and they don’t have to publicly disclose their donors.
However, America First Policies, a political action committee chaired by Linda McMahon, revealed in 2019 that they contributed to Women for America First. America First’s 990 disclosure form from that year shows they contributed $25,000 to Women for America First.
Linda McMahon, the wife of WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, is a long time ally of Trump. She was formerly the head of the Small Business Administration. She resigned from her position in 2019 to assume her new role as the Chairwoman of America First Action.
Chaired by Amy Kremer, Women for America First called on supporters to be part of the rally that took place on January 6th. They were asked to meet a day before to “join the caravan to D.C”. Beyond Women for America First, there were other outside groups involved in encouraging people to go to the rally.
The calvary is coming, Mr. President!
