Landmark Sedition Indictment Against Oath Keepers - Planning & Prep for January 6

The sedition case against the Oath Keepers highlights that there were hardened groups of alleged criminals within the mob that essentially planned for war. Rhodes, the Oath Keepers' leader, is quoted as telling his supporters that they should prepare for a "bloody" operation and that they would need to "fight" in a "war."

One defendant allegedly took an early November trip to Washington to conduct recon for an upcoming "op." Communications about the "bloody" "fight" and "revolution" were accompanied by logistical planning, prosecutors alleged, with defendants discussing obtaining and bringing weapons to the Washington area. Prosecutors added more details of how the Oath Keepers allegedly stockpiled weapons at a nearby hotel in Virginia, just in case they needed to deploy a "quick reaction force" into DC.

Plot Bigger Than Jan 6

The indictment says the Oath Keepers aimed for more than disruption of Congress. This group, prosecutors say, wanted to stop the transfer of presidential power from Trump to Joe Biden. After the insurrection, they gathered to celebrate, then continued talking. "We aren't quitting!! We are reloading!!," one of the defendants wrote in a Signal chat.

Around Inauguration Day, January 20, Rhodes allegedly told associates to organize local militias to oppose the Biden administration. Another member allegedly said, "After this... if nothing happens...its war...Civil War 2.0." The Justice Department spent all of 2021 rounding up nearly two dozen alleged members of the Oath Keepers. They secured the cooperation of a few people charged in the original Oath Keepers conspiracy case -- the one without the sedition charges -- which was a significant breakthrough.

Involvement of Republican Members of Congress

Far-right activist Ali Alexander, who organized the January 6 "Stop the Steal" rally that preceded the deadly Capitol siege, says he planned the event with help from:

--- Rep. Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican, told a right-wing militant group that the US was in a civil war and predicted it would become violent, Jim Arroyo, the leader of an Arizona chapter of Oath Keepers, said in a Nov. 2020 video. "We asked [Gosar] flat-out, at that time, do you think we're heading into a civil war?" Arroyo said of his exchange with Gosar. "And his response to the group was just flat-out, 'We're in it, we just haven't started shooting yet.'" Gosar's brother, Dave Gosar, told The New York Times this week that the congressman is "twisted up so tight with the Oath Keepers it's not even funny."

--- Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado has close connections to militia groups, including the so-called Three Percenters,
an extremist offshoot of the gun rights movement that had at least one member who entered the Capitol on Jan. 6.

--- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory, whose adherents were among the most visible of those who stormed the building, and she appeared at a rally with militia groups.

--- Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida
appeared last year at an event also attended by members of the Proud Boys, another extremist organization whose role in the Jan. 6 assault, like those of the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters, is being investigated by the FBI.

--- Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama

--- Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona

Any idea what was going on inside the building? Was it just a ho-hum certification? It's all part of the picture. And that part is much more important and scary. You aren't hearing my message. I don't much care about a rally. I do care about a riot on our capitol. And I really care what they were rioting about. But what I care about most is the jackassery that was going on inside the capitol before it was ever breached. It's all part of 1/6. It wasn't tourists, @Spoofin. You are on the side of downplaying, once again.
The downplaying of what was nationwide riots and violence and looting and violent crime is just plain abhorrent. And it's still going on, and you continue to contribute

But wingnuts will tell you 1/6 wasn't an attempted insurrection.

Fucking POTUS trying to steal an election, and Repugnicans cheer.
Trying to steal an election that was stolen. So you have this as wrong in your loony leftist mind?

Your circle of 1 isn't a good representation of the voters.
Sorry to burst your bubble.

Let me get this straight, you think Rs calling Ds Nazis is over the line?
D's are Commies. R's are the Nazis. That's how it's always been even though Limbaugh tried to fabricate a differen narrative in which R's are as lily white and pure as the wind driven snow.

Anyone with an IQ approaching triple digits, and up, already knows what Trump and his minions attempted on 1/6. We knew it as we watched. He was attempting to overturn an election.

He was a third world tinpot despot, and figured he could continue driving the country down that road.

More than once in the hay day of the AWA, the results of Saturday's matches were called to the St. Paul Pioneer Press before the card started, likely by an employee who wanted to knock off early.
LOL! Pioneer Press emps were making extra dough on the betting line taking Mitsu Arakawa to lose to Verne Gagne in a grudge match!

This explains why you are so clueless. If the bar were set at 80, I am sure you would clear it by a few points. I have great confidence in you.
