Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick, who was fatally wounded on Jan. 6 by a violent mob incited by President Trump, will lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda this week.

This comes as the FBI is uncovering more evidence the January 6 attack was coordinated in advance. Jessica Marie Watkins, a member of the Oath Keepers, sent messages to potential recruits for her own militia-style group asking them to be “fighting fit” by Inauguration Day. Meanwhile, two members of the far-right Proud Boys were charged in New York Friday night with conspiracy.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal is reporting far-right conspiracy theorist and media figure Alex Jones donated $50,000 to help fund the rally that preceded the riot, while Julie Fancelli, heir to the Publix grocery store, gave $300,000.
