She also tweeted an announcement about a “peaceful rally” at noon Tuesday outside the Miami federal courthouse and urged people to bring their pro-Trump shirts, hats and signs; bullhorns; and “love” for the ex-president. Another police advisory, citing a Telegram chat post, noted a rally Tuesday morning outside the federal courthouse in Miami purportedly organized by the Vice City Proud Boys, a Miami chapter of the Proud Boys. On Sunday, outside the federal courthouse, a helicopter briefly hovered overhead.
