Roger Stone and George Papadopoulos have been added as special guests to AmpFest, an annual conference at Trump National Doral that already had announced that Michael Flynn and Dinesh D’Souza would be headlining.
All four men received pardons from former President Donald Trump and are now drawing customers to one of his businesses. Stone, Papadopoulous and D'Souza have all appeared at AmpFest in previous years.
Another beneficiary of a Trump pardon, Steve Bannon, will appear remotely.
Other special guests this year include Congressmen Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Pizzagate peddler Jack Posobiec and Tracy Beanz, an early pusher of Qanon.

Tickets to AMPFest cost $450 to $3,500, while rooms at Doral—Trump’s Miami golf resort—start at $209 a night.
The agenda includes a pool party, a fashion show and a talk by one of the “preeminent voices of the vaccine-risk-awareness movement.” Access to Roger Stone’s VIP martini mixer, during which he'll share the cocktail recipe he learned from Richard Nixon, costs an extra $1,000 (only 20 tickets are available).
The 2020 edition of AmpFest, also at Doral, featured appearances by South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) and, separately, Proud Boys chair Enrique Tarrio. Highlights from 2019 included a fake video of Trump shooting up his critics, reported the New York Times, and attendees chanting for “war!,” according to the podcast “Trump, Inc.” Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders headlined.
