2.Those closest to the ex-president pointed to a rally organized by the Trump-adoring activist Laura Loomer—and promoted by longtime Trump ally Roger Stone—as an event that could go very wrong.

3.“Inside of this event, there is going to be a disaster,” a Trump confidant told The Daily Beast. “There are going to be people that come out that don’t want to be peaceful.”

4.“All the things that are wrong with MAGA are going to show up,” the confidant added. “You get the fanatics coming out.”

5.A close Trump adviser also expressed reservations about the gathering. “I would hope it’s not a protest,” this Trump adviser told The Daily Beast. “I have never heard of anyone wanting to protest."

6.And another longtime adviser thought the idea of a rally was unwise, suggesting that Loomer and Stone were not the best people to assemble a responsible crowd.

7.Loomer has implored supporters to bring “Trump flags, Trump shirts, Trump hats, Trump signs, bullhorns and your love of President Trump” to the Miami courthouse where Trump will be arraigned. And even though she’s repeatedly warned supporters to remain peaceful, there are real concerns about the crowd that may show up.

8.After the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, those concerns are very real. And plenty of MAGA fixtures—including congressmen—have suggested that supporters prepare for potential violence.
