The mainstream media and lefty blogs have spun up a new conspiracy theory: that Stop the Steal organizer Ali Alexander colluded with Republican House members Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, and Mo Brooks to plan an “insurrection.” Once again, the conspiracy theorists are wrong.
This past Friday evening, December 17, January 6th witness and Stop the Steal organizer, Ali Alexander filed a lawsuit against Nancy Pelosi and the Select Committee. As we’ve covered here at The American Spectator, he joins Mark Meadows, John Eastman, four Republican campaign officials and a photojournalist seeking to block an overly broad subpoena for data including texts and phone calls, over a year in duration, the committee wants telecom companies to fulfill.
Alexander’s suit gives a glimpse into some of what he told the Select Committee in a private deposition he petitioned to be made public.
In pages 18 through 19 of the 25-page complaint the suit states:
At Alexander’s December 9, 2021 deposition, he testified that he had a few phone conversations with Representative Paul Gosar and no verbal phone conversations with Representatives Andy Biggs or Mo Brooks that he recalls. The Select Committee asked him about all three Members of Congress. Mr. Alexander testified that he had phone conversations with Rep. Brooks’ staff about a “Dear Colleague” letter and how his activists could be helpful. Mr. Alexander believes he exchanged a text message with Rep. Brooks, contents which he provided to the Committee. He also testified that he spoke to Rep. Biggs in person and never by phone, to the best of his recollection. In January, Mr. Alexander held an organizing call where Members of Congress might have been present, and some were invited. He doesn’t recall who was in attendance because there was no roll call of attendees because the call was so large.
This is the extent to which Alexander told the Select Committee about any conversations with Congressmen Biggs, Brooks, and Gosar, respectively, according to Alexander attorneys.
The suit disproves the left-wing conspiracy theory that these three members of the House worked with Stop the Steal to overthrow the government or planned the chaos that day.
Democrats and the media on Twitter claim that a video Alexander made where he gave credit to Representatives Gosar, Biggs, and Brooks for their noble efforts in legally challenging the Electoral College prove some sort of insurrection plot.
Alexander’s lawsuit exonerates them.
Still, Nancy Pelosi, the Select Committee and their 40-person staff want more dirt. That’s why Alexander is suing.
Conversations Alexander revealed to the January 6 Select Committee prove that Ali and these Congressmen didn't talk about logistics of events nor did they plot an “insurrection.”
Ali was engaged in legal protesting and grassroots lobbying efforts. Vindicated!

Joseph McBride, one of Alexander’s lawyers assisting him to process January 6th evidence but not listed on the lawsuit, told The American Spectator that he believes due process is on trial for both Alexander, other defendants, including media members, and those who may be in contact with any of the above. As the committee proved, they’re willing to violate the privacy of even the highest ranking officials in the executive branch.
“Ali Alexander did nothing wrong. He’s totally innocent. The FBI knows that, the media know that, still conspiracy theories unjustly plague his reputation. At some point, negative media stories then affect his right to be presumed innocent, his basic assumption of privacy, and other civil rights. It’s wrong. It’s just wrong.” stated McBride. He continued, “In suing the Democrats, Ali is proving he meant what he said when he started the Stop the Steal movement. He wants to defend the liberties of all conservatives — really all Americans. He has nothing to hide; I’ve seen the phone records as his attorney. But, he will fight because it’s the right thing to do.”
Last week, Liz Cheney and Democrats read Mark Meadows’ private text messages in House proceedings. Some of those messages were doctored. Those texts prove there was no coup, no plot to overthrow Congress itself. The Select Committee is coming up empty and resorting to dirty tricks.
Alexander’s lawsuit and Meadows’ texts have cleared President Trump and Representatives Biggs, Brooks, and Gosar. There was, in fact, no insurrection.
