What could rattle markets in 2021, even as vaccines are rolling out


The executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association resigned after the group was criticized for soliciting thousands of Trump supporters to march on the Capitol last week and fight to support President Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud.

The Republican Attorneys General Association’s policy arm, the Rule of Law Defense Fund, authorized robocall messages urging “patriots” to join last Wednesday’s march to “fight to protect the integrity of our elections.” Marchers eventually stormed the Capitol building, disrupting Congress’s ratification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over Trump and leaving five dead, including a Capitol Police officer.
