The organizers behind the Women for America First "Save America" rally that occurred on the morning of January 6, Amy and Kylie Jane Kremer, have sent a letter to Rolling Stone through their lawyer, demanding that the outlet retract false statements made about them in a November article.

"We write concerning the false and defamatory statements published by Rolling Stone on November 23, 2021, in the article titled, 'Jan. 6 Organizers Used Anonymous Burner Phones to Communicate with White House and Trump Family, Sources Say.' Specifically, the article falsely states that Kylie Kremer used 'burner phones' to 'communicate with top White House and Trump campaign officials,'" the letter, obtained by Human Events and addressed to Rolling Stone Editor-in-Chief Noah Shachtman, read.

"The article also states that Ms. Kremer directed someone else to purchase burner phones 'with cash.' These statements imply that Ms. Kremer was involved in some nefarious activity by directing the cash purchase of and use of 'burner phones' during the organization of the January 6, 2021 Save America on the Ellipse. These statements are false. To be clear, at no time did either Kylie Jane Kremer or Amy Kremer direct anyone to purchase a burner phone with cash or otherwise, nor did they use a burner phone to communicate with anyone, let alone anyone identified in the article," the letter continued.

The letter noted that the term "burner phone" usually evokes connotations of illegal or illicit activities, with the idea of it being purchased with cash making it harder for the user to be tracked.

"These statements and intentional implications of participating in, or passively condoning the criminal activity that occurred at the Capitol on January 6th are patently false and defamatory, and are extremely damaging. Kylie Jane Kremer nor Amy Kremer did not participate in any illegal or illicit activity on January 6, 2021, nor did they participate in any such illegal or illicit activity leading up to the peaceful permitted event on the Ellipse on that date," the letter stated.

"Rolling Stone's wholesale adoption of false statements by unreliable anonymous sources without even attempting to confirm the information indicates a clear disregard for the truth and basic journalistic principles," it added.

The letter, written by Dhillon Law Group lawyer David A. Warrington, lists a number of demands from Rolling Stone "To avoid our taking immediate steps to seek injunctive relief in court."

These demands include immediately retracting, correcting, and apologizing for the false statement published by the outlet, cease and desist publishing false statements about the Kramer duo, and remove and delete the false statements from social media.

The letter sets a January 3, 2022 deadline for these tasks to be completed.

"Should Rolling Stone fail to accomplish the foregoing, the Kremers intend to take all necessary next steps to remedy the harm he has suffered and continues to suffer," the letter stated.

The letter concludes by warning the Rolling Stone "Litigation is likely to ensue in this matter," and reminding them of state and federal laws that require them to hold onto any electronically stored information they may have pertaining to Amy and Kylie Jane Kremer.

Amy and Kylie Jane Kremer were subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on January 6 in September. They duo, who founded Women for America First, held a large rally in Washington DC in the hours leading up to the riot at the Capitol building.

"The subpoenas seek a range of records that include materials dealing with the planning, funding, and participation in the events and bus tours; social media activity of associated entities; and communications with or involvement of Trump Administration officials and lawmakers," wrote the Select Committee at the time.
