Oath Keepers leader, during attack on Capitol, allegedly told followers ‘Trump better do his damn duty’


According to prosecutors, Rhodes, referred to not by name but as “Person One,” exchanged a 97-second phone call at around 2:32 p.m. with Florida Oath Keepers leader Kelly Meggs, who’s been charged in the Capitol riot conspiracy case, as Meggs and other members of a tactical “stack,” dressed in militia gear, pushed through crowds to enter the Capitol.

Minutes later the stack of Oath Keepers forcibly entered the Capitol, according to the court filing.

According to the government’s recent court filings, the call during the riot came after Rhodes, in previously revealed communications in which he was identified as “Person One,” used a Signal group chat titled “DC OP: Jan 6 21,” to share with other members a photograph of the Capitol with a caption that read “South side of US Capitol. Patriots pounding on doors.”

Soon after, as Oath Keepers and others were inside the Capitol, Rhodes posted a photo showing people at the Capitol and wrote, “Trump better do his damn duty.”

Other new messages included in the court filing show Rhodes at 5:50 p.m. asking leaders to “check to be sure you have all your team members. If anyone is missing, post here,” and later in the evening sending a long message that served as a rallying cry, comparing the events of Jan. 6 to the Boston Tea Party in 1773.   read more…

  1. Dereliction of duty, was a constant theme of this admin. To what good, did any of them aspire to, at the expense of their own self interest ?

    Even today, they work tirelessly to eliminate the votes of the people. It is the duty of the people, to rein in such disregard of our authority. How ironic.

  2. What a big F’ing joke that whole fiasco was! I wonder how many of the clowns in the mob knew they were playing out the role of the airplanes on 9/11?
    It was obviously a staged event! Many there knew it, but most probably did not.
    I can assure you that everyone inside the Capitol knew exactly what was going to go down.
    The puppet masters pulled off another charade. It was all a psy-op to drive and manipulate their massive control-agenda.
    “Strawberry Fields: nothing is real, and nothing to get hung about.”

  3. When we look the surface in all this affair of january 6th I’ve the feeling as it was scheduled to fail… How you explain that this guy Rhodes and his partners were using common and open messaging applications to post pictures and talk with one another instead of using dedicated heavily encrypted apps on the deep web???

    • How do we know that “they” did not communicate ‘heavily encrypted on the deep web? More importantly how would you ever know? Please enlighten us.

    • I don’t know, that is why I’m actually asking because I think that’s the most probable scenario and not that fool behaviour they showed

  4. No, Stewart, Trump will leave you to take the fall while he skates off to wherever. You were a total dumb-ass to think that your actions wouldn’t have consequences. Guess that’s why true-believer logic is like thinking the Sun goes around the Earth. Sadly, fully one-quarter of Americans actually think that. My guess is that every one of them voted for Trump in the last election.
