Federal prosecutors have charged the founder of the Oath Keepers and 10 other members of the far-right group with seditious conspiracy for their role in the Jan. 6 riot, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

Stewart Rhodes, 56, was arrested Thursday in Little Elm, Texas, and also faces charges for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Oath Keepers leader and founder has said he was present at the riot but never entered the Capitol on Jan. 6.


The DOJ wrote in a press release,” “The seditious conspiracy indictment alleges that, following the Nov. 3, 2020, presidential election, Rhodes conspired with his co-defendants and others to oppose by force the execution of the laws governing the transfer of presidential power by Jan. 20, 2021.”

Rhodes, an Army Airborne veteran and constitutional attorney, is charged with conspiring to “oppose by force the execution of the laws governing the transfer of presidential power” then-President Trump to Biden.

Conviction on a charge of seditious conspiracy carries a maximum sentence of no more than 20 years.

Rhodes has denied any involvement in urging the group to storm the building and said it is wrong to do so, according to the report.

According to their website, “Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to ‘defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’”

The Oath Keepers see themselves as charged with a mission to “preserve liberty for our children and grand-children, and for all Americans,” and their motto is “Not on our watch!”

Oath Keeper Tom Kampert took issue with the way the media portrayed the group, and wrote in an op-ed, “The Oath Keepers is an association of like-minded people who, at some point in their life, took an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States. They are not a militia. They are not white supremacist. Their membership is made up of all races. They are not anti-government. Their message is that there is no expiration date on their oath. That they will always honor it. They expect the same from government officials, both appointed and elected.”

“We build investigations by laying a foundation,” Garland said last week after pressure to crack down on indictments. “We resolve more straightforward cases first because they provide the evidentiary foundation for more complex cases. Investigating the more overt crimes generates linkages to less overt ones. Overt actors and the evidence they provide can lead us to others who may also have been involved. And that evidence can serve as the foundation for further investigative leads and techniques.”

  1. Their narrative is falling apart cause the truth is coming out , how the democrats staged this! Our government is now communist! The DOJ has turned into the Gestapo!

  2. There was nothing lawful about electing Biden as president. Their basis of a piece full transfer of power is a lie and has already proven so.

  3. That is a crime when nothing is done to BLM and Antifa! Their looting a burning is overlooked! Damn the Democrats! They all need to be kicked out of office along with those FBI scum!

  4. I’m sorry but now I’m really pissed off these people arrest people who they don’t like on bullshit charges when they have zero proof they did anything but let a man go who was seen on film screaming at people to go inside. Yes Ray Epps a person put there by the biden government who helped create this whole scenario is set free but a man who says openly he was there but never went inside is now charged with seditious crap. As much as it worries me it might be time to start arming yourselves because they are intent to arrest anyone who is against their murderous plot to destroy this country and that also means anyone who is against people who only want their liberties and freedoms giving to us by the constitution. I guess outsiders like me who think they are crooked will be next .

  5. The leftists so called accusative jargon is so ridiculous along with no credible evidence against the proclaimed “Jan. 6 terrorists” they have arrested. Are they going to hold these people in solitary confinement until the 2022 and 2024 elections to make a political statement when its needed right before the elections?

  6. Ahab and Jezebel are still free
    And they wonder why we want them gone
    Illegals by the millions And Medusa calling out in the open to murder whites. . The FBI has always been corrupt
    Let’s Go John Wick

  7. This eventually will bite Garland in the ass. He never entered the Capitol Building. I suspect this will be much more different than Garland expects. But this is theater to offset the Sussman ( Clinton) Trial in October 2022.
