Oath Keepers' Leaders Guilty Of Seditious Conspiracy

Developing story, but the heaviest charge of seditious conspiracy lands on the Oath Keepers' two fascist leaders, Elmer Stewart Rhodes and Kelly Meggs:

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!

Now the sentencing has to have some teeth in it, lest the next crop of insurrectionists thinks, "Hey, only a couple months in jail for overturning the government? Piece of cake, I'm in."

bluzdude -- yes, they should get the max for planning and participating in the nation's second insurrection, after the Civil War.
