Trump Rioters Charged with Seditious Conspiracy

The leader of the Oath Keepers and ten other individuals have been indicted in federal court on charges including seditious conspiracy connected to the January 6th Capitol riots. The main person in question is Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, a 56-year-old from Texas, who is the founder and leader of the right-wing Oath Keepers organization. The indictment alleges that Rhodes and his co-defendants tried to oppose with force the execution of the laws ensuring a transfer of power from Donald Trump to Joe Biden. These are highly serious charges and perhaps the most severe so far stemming from the Capitol insurrection. For over a year now, there’s been talk about the actions taken by some of those on the 6th being “sedition” and while true in a colloquial sense, only now are there actual charges alleging that. Perhaps it has taken so long because being such a serious crime, a mountain of evidence has had to accumulate in order to meet the standard to charge these folks.
