‘Descend on the Capitol’ conference call


The “Descend on the Capitol” Conference Call was a call with an unknown number of Trump supporters that took place on Dec. 30, 2020. The call was helmed by Roger Stone associate Jason Sullivan and included at least one member of the far-right paramilitary organization 1st Amendment Praetorian.

Sullivan told Trump supporters on the call that part of their strategy to overturn the election should be to “descend on the Capitol, no question.”

  • On Dec. 30, 2020, Sullivan held the call as part of an effort by prominent Trump supporters to pressure lawmakers in Washington and across the country to find ways to decertify President Joe Biden’s victory.
  • Sullivan suggested that Trump would institute “some form of martial law” and insisted that lawmakers in the Capitol “need to feel that pressure.” It is unclear if Sullivan took part in March to Save America or other events directly ahead of the attack on the Capitol.
