Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is now even more connected to the January 6th Capitol insurrection after he released a text message sent to his phone by an organizer of the events that day.

It has already been revealed that several GOP lawmakers were involved in organizing January 6th, including Brooks, who is currently being sued in court by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) for helping to incite the insurrectionists who violently stormed the Capitol to overthrow democracy and target lawmakers for assassination.

Of course, Brooks has denied any involvement in January 6th even though he wore a bulletproof vest that day clearly in anticipation of the violence. In desperation, he also claimed his staffers were the ones involved.

It’s just another excuse in a long line of excuses by Brooks, who is desperate to avoid being held accountable.

But now a text message has come back to incriminate Brooks even further. It turns out that January 6th organizer Ali Alexander sent a message to Brooks.

“Congressman, this is Ali Alexander,” the message said. “I am the founder of Stop the Steal, the protests happening in all 50 states. We met years ago back in 2010, during the tea party when you were first elected. I texted the wrong number. I had intended to invite you to our giant Saturday prayer rally in DC, this past weekend. Also Gen. (Michael) Flynn should be giving you a ring. We stand ready to help. Jan 6th is a big moment in our republic.”

Despite releasing the text message himself, Brooks once again offered excuses and denials by claiming in a statement that his phone didn’t even recognize Alexander and that a phone call with Flynn never happened.

“Outside of this possible text message with someone who claimed to be ‘Ali Alexander,’ Congressman Brooks has no recollection of any other communications involving Congressman Brooks and someone claiming to be ‘Ali Alexander,’ and, after a search involving cell phone records and emails, Congressman Brooks has found no communications that purport to involve Congressman Brooks and anyone claiming to be ‘Ali Alexander,'” the statement read. “The insinuation that this single text to Congressman Brooks from an unknown number by someone claiming to be ‘Alexander’ somehow suggests Congressman Brooks in any way helped plan the Capitol attack is absurd, outrageous and defamatory.”

Mo Brooks’ phone records would prove one way or another whom Brooks communicated in the lead up to January 6th and on the day itself. The House January 6th Committee should subpoena his records and the records of other GOP lawmakers to see just how involved they were in the coup attempt.
