CORRECTION: A previous version of this story mentioned individuals who cast doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election after the Jan. 6 US Capitol Attack, not before—or did not comment specifically on the US Presidential Election—and were therefore not involved in developing the atmosphere that led to the attack. Their names have since been removed, and we regret the error.
It’s been three years since former President Donald Trump incited an insurrection at the US Capitol in order to remain in office. A lot of Arizonans were involved in this effort—from writing legislation to overturn the will of the voters to attending the riot.
Some have faced consequences; many are still in positions of power.
