The Oath Keepers are the highest-profile and most extensively prosecuted militia group associated with the events of January 6. So far, the government has charged a total of 18 Oath Keepers with conspiring to obstruct Congress’s certification of the 2020 Presidential Election. This is a serious conspiracy charge that could potentially lead to decades of prison time. Oddly enough, Oath Keepers founder and leader Stewart Rhodes himself has not been charged with anything, despite the fact that the government cites Rhodes’s own statements and actions as largely constitutive of the conspiracy for which so many of his underlings face charges. Revolver News has previously covered this extensively in a major piece of investigative journalism. Apart from any charges of conspiracy, there is no doubt that, based on his actions on January 6, Stewart Rhodes could technically be prosecuted for trespassing on US Capitol grounds. The situation looks more damning by the day when it comes to the question of federal foreknowledge of and involvement in 1/6 at the very highest levels. Perhaps there is some as yet undiscovered innocent explanation for the glaring and seemingly damning questions raised above. If this is the case, it is time for the Justice Department and the FBI to explain themselves to the American people. We need answers. And we need them now.
