Willard Hotel War Room


Leading up to the insurrection, the “war room” at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. was the so-called command center for members of Trump’s inner circle who were among the biggest provocateurs of the stolen election narrative.

Among the key players who gathered there to strategize about how to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and prevent congressional certification of it on Jan. 6, 2021 were Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, former White House strategist Steve Bannon, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, election denier and lawyer John Eastman, and as many as 30 others. Various members of the group gathered on multiple occasions to spread false evidence of election fraud and pressure Republican lawmakers—including Vice President Mike Pence and others from across the country—to object to certifying the Electoral College results on Jan. 6.
