Oath Keeper’s founder was in direct contact with Capitol rioters: Prosecutors

Stewart Rhodes, the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers paramilitary group has been accused by federal prosecutors of being in direct communication in the run-up to Jan. 6 and then during the insurrection itself with militia members who stormed the Capitol. It has been alleged that Rhodes was in a group chat called ’DC OP: Jan 6 21’ on the encrypted messaging platform Signal.

So the government did find it was a far right trump supporting group that committed treason. I wonder if a lot of the other trump supporters who were talking out of their butt on here about antifa; will stop saying conspiracies and admit that maybe their party is kinda messed up right now.

So with the antifa theory completely debunked, will the right wing begin to acknowledge the inherit violence within their ideology?

Here is the actual excerpt from the court documents being cited. "Evidence that the government will disclose to the defense this week—a Signal chat called “DC OP: Jan 6 21”—shows that individuals, including those alleged to have conspired with the defendant, were actively planning to use force and violence. The participants in this chat include: Person One, Kelly Meggs, Jessica Watkins, and regional Oath Keeper leaders from multiple states across the country. To date, there is no evidence that Caldwell participated in the chat, but the investigation is ongoing. The chat discusses members and affiliates of the Oath Keepers coming to Washington, D.C., for the events of January 5-6, 2021, to provide security to speakers and VIPs at the events. There is no discussion of forcibly entering the Capitol until January 6, 2021." Personally, it sounds like they have nothing on this Rhodes guy currently, though it does appear the prosecution is trying turn conversations, that imply preparation for defensive violence against Antifa/etc, into offensive violence explicitly targeted at the Capitol/politicians.

That's weird because they sent out an email days before saying to avoid DC due to the incoming false flag...
