Man charged with attacking officer who suffered concussion in US Capitol riot”

At the event, Trump told supporters to "fight like hell".

Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a top donor to former President Donald Trump, gave about $300,000 to the "Save America" rally - more than half the cost of funding the event, the Journal said.

Publix heiress Julie Jenkins Fancelli, a prominent donor to former US President Donald Trump, who contributed almost $1 million to Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican Party during the 2020 election cycle, reportedly provided about $300,000, with the help of Jones, to stage the 6 January rally held by Trump on a lawn in front of the White House, according to the report.

Mr. Jones personally pledged more than $50,000 in seed money for a planned January 6 event in exchange for a guaranteed "top speaking slot of his choice", according to a funding document outlining a deal between his company and an early organizer for the event.

The fundraising haul could serve as an answer to those who have questioned if it is still financially beneficial for Republicans to align themselves with former President Donald Trump.

After toppling a police barricade leaving a female officer unconscious, Samsel reportedly helped her up and said, "We don't have to hurt you".

A pro-Trump mob enters the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C.

FEC records also show that Fancelli contributed almost $1 million to Republican Party electoral efforts in 2020 alone.

Neither Fancelli or Jones responded to the Wall Street Journal's requests for comment.

House impeachment managers intend to use video posted on social media from the January 6 attack as evidence against the former president, whose Senate trial is scheduled to begin February 9, and Facebook and Twitter posts has helped authorities make charges against 170 alleged participants in the riot.

"Mrs. Fancelli is not an employee of Publix Super Markets, and is neither involved in our business operations, nor does she represent the company in any way", a statement released late Saturday said. "The deplorable actions that occurred that day do not represent the values, work or opinions of Publix Super Markets".

Fancelli is the daughter of Publix founder George Jenkins. Fancelli could not immediately be reached for comment.
