Developing story, but the heaviest charge of seditious conspiracy lands on the Oath Keepers' two fascist leaders, Elmer Stewart Rhodes and Kelly Meggs:
BREAKING: Oath Keepers founder STEWART RHODES guilty of seditious conspiracy - plus codefendant Kelly Meggs.— Rob Legare (@RobLegare) November 29, 2020
Jessica Watkins, Thomas Caldwell, and Kenneth Harrelson NOT guilty on this count.
All guilty on obstructing official proceeding on Jan 6.
All five noted in the tweet above were convicted of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, but the jury acquitted the three other "Oath Keepers" of seditious conspiracy. Other charges remaining are destruction of property, civil disorder and tampering with documents.
Now, time to go up the prosecutorial "ladder" with the seditious conspiracy and other charges.
Lock them up!
