(TheRedAlertNews.com) – Breaking Now: Just moments ago, in a sign that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Department of Justice are far from done with arresting individuals and organizations that they claim were involved in a coordinated conspiracy and attack on the United States Capitol in an attempt to overturn the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in January of 2021, “The Justice Department has charged 11 defendants with seditious conspiracy related to the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, including the leader of the Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes,” according to CNN.
CNN reports that Rhodes’ lawyer, Jonathan Moseley, has confirmed the arrest and the charges of sedition. Rhodes was taken into federal custody in Texas.
According to the AP:
“The arrest of Rhodes and the others is a serious escalation of the accusations against the thousands of rioters who stormed the Capitol. And the charges answer in part a growing chorus of Republicans who have publicly questioned the seriousness of the Jan. 6 insurrection, arguing that since no one had been charged yet with sedition or treason, it could not have been so violent…
“The indictment against Rhodes alleges Oath Keepers formed two teams, or “stacks,” that entered the Capitol. The first “stack” split up inside the building to separately go after the House and Senate. The second “stack” confronted officers inside the Capitol Rotunda, the indictment said. Outside Washington, the indictment alleges, the Oath Keepers had stationed two “quick reaction forces” that had guns “in support of their plot to stop the lawful transfer of power.”
