The main donor behind the Washintgon D.C. ‘Stop the Steal’ rally that sparked a riot on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 has been revealed as the heiress to the Publix Super Markets Inc. chain.
Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a prominent Trump donor, pledged $300,000 to the MAGA rally in an arrangement set up by far-right show radio host Alex Jones.
Fancelli’s donation funded most of the event, which cost $500,000 in total to run.
After being initally arranged by Jones, Fancelli then coordinated with Caroline Wren, a top fundraising official on the Trump 2020 campaign.
According to records, Wren and her fundraising consultancy firm were paid $730,000 by the Trump campaign and a joint GOP committee in the 2020 election cycle.
Jones himself also contributed more than $50,000 in seed money to the event in exchange for a ‘top speaking slot of his choice’, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Former President Trump also spoke at the rally, held at Washington’s Ellipse.
He has since been impeached for the second time after being accused by the Democrat-led House of inciting violence by encouraging a mob to storm the U.S. Capitol by telling them in his speech to ‘fight like hell’.
Five people died in the following violence, four of whom were Trump’s own supporters.
