Is Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, Once the Protected Prince of the GOP, Finally facing a Shitstorm for Jan 6?

VT believes looking at Rhodes will tie Jan 6 not not only Cruz but McConnell as well.  The Oath Keepers has long been a vital part of the GOP, well financed and part of their inventory of subversive groups under the umbrella of InfoWars, Prison Planet and Fox News.

And behind them, AIPAC, MAGA, the ADL and Trump’s ‘Moscow Heavies’

In a new filing overnight, prosecutors alleged that Rhodes was in direct contact with militia members before, during, and after the storming of the Capitol, and was both urging followers to come to Washington, D.C., ahead of Jan. 6 and directing members toward the Capitol building during the insurrection — the clearest indication yet that prosecutors have Rhodes in their crosshairs as allegedly being directly related to the events of that day.

Prosecutors allege that Rhodes instructed members using the encrypted messaging platform Signal in a group chat titled “DC OP: Jan 6 21.” Shortly after 2 p.m., for example, Rhodes allegedly wrote to “Come to the South Side of the Capitol on steps,” according to the government filing. Minutes later, Rhodes allegedly sent the group a photograph of the Capitol with a caption that read “South side of US Capitol. Patriots pounding on doors.” (ABC News)

NPR: Federal prosecutors allege that the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers paramilitary group, Stewart Rhodes, was in direct communication — in the runup to Jan. 6 and then during the Capitol insurrection itself — with militia members who stormed the building.

The allegations emerged in court papers filed late Monday by the government in the case against Thomas Caldwell, an alleged Oath Keeper who along with eight other people is facing conspiracy and other federal charges in connection with the Jan. 6 insurrection.

In the new filing, prosecutors allege that Rhodes was in a group chat called “DC OP: Jan 6 21” on the encrypted messaging platform Signal. Two of Caldwell’s co-defendants, Kelly Meggs and Jessica Watkins, as well as regional Oath Keeper leaders from states across the U.S., were also in the chat.

Rhodes, who is identified in the document as Person One, founded the anti-government Oath Keepers in 2009. He has not been charged in connection with the insurrection, but the latest government filing shows him in direct contact, including on Jan. 6, with several individuals who have been.

According to the government filing, Rhodes sent the group a message as the pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol, telling them to “Come to South Side of Capitol on steps,” and then followed up with a photograph of the southeast side of the building.

  1. Lets not forget our “double naught spy” “Q” to get the Jan 6 party rolling online and for grins and giggles please duck duck go “X 22 bitchute” and please do not under any circumstances click on the video but do go to the comment section and observe the “Qtard” in his natural environment.

    You will of course find this instructive and if the Democrats stole an election its far better than having Jethro running the country.

    Just an observation and an opinion.

    • Truth: The GOP fabricated millions of rural votes where there is NO oversite….but still fell 7 m short. There are no poll watchers in GOP areas…dems don’t get Israeli cash.

  2. I think what we’re dealing with here is a massive conglomeration of willing dupes, from Trump all the way down.

    • True believers is more like it. They seem to have forgotten that actions have consequences. That’s a sign of being detached from objective reality. As the indictments come raining down on them, they will look to Trump… He will have skated off to Israel or wherever to avoid prosecution for his many crimes.
