In a video posted on Twitter by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, participants at a rally on Wednesday supporting his opponent, Republican nominee Glenn Youngkin, recited the Pledge of Allegiance to a flag that an attendee said was at the “peaceful” Jan. 6 rally where former President Donald Trump spoke. Shortly after that rally, a mob attacked the Capitol to overturn the election of Joe Biden as president.

- I also-- [LAUGHS] I also want to invite Kim from Chesapeake. She's carrying an American flag that was carried at the peaceful rally with Donald J Trump on January 6.

[APPLAUSE]

I ask you all-- I ask you all to rise and join us as Mark Lloyd leads us in the pledge.

MARK LLOYD: Face the flag. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
