Utah AG Affiliated With One Of The Groups Reported To Have Funded Wednesday's Rallies

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes is a part of an association that reportedly helped organize the rally on behalf of President Donald Trump that ended with a violent attack on the U.S. Capitol earlier this week, according to Documented, a left-leaning watchdog group.

Reyes served as the policy chairman of the Republican Attorney Generals Association last year and is currently listed on the website as a member of the association's executive committee. According to Documented, the Rule of Law Defense Fund, which is an affiliate of the Republican Attorney Generals Association, sent out a robocall message on Tuesday encouraging “patriots like you (to) join us to continue to fight to protect the integrity of our election.”

A report from Bloomberg stated that leaders in the Republican Attorney Generals Association and the Rule of Law Defense Fund deny the link and said the decision of staffers to be involved in the demonstration before the riot was not authorized by group leadership.
