NEW: #OathKeepers leader Stewart Rhodes found guilty of seditious conspiracy.

Kelly Meggs, too.

Also convicted of obstructing an official proceeding, as were OathKeepers:

Kenneth Harrelson
Jessica Watkins
Thomas Caldwell

Report: reuters.com/legal/us-jury-… Image
Remember this #Jan6 video by @rstevensbrody?

I do.

It sent a chill down my spine.

It motivated so many to get involved in painstaking crowdsourced efforts to identify the #OathKeepers down to the last detail of their movements during the siege.
For *weeks* after #Jan6 much of what public knew about #OathKeepers during #Jan6 was the fruit of volunteer sleuthing...

The work of a handful of visual investigations teams like the @nytimes...

And and some tenacious local & nat'l reporters.

After conducting numerous investigations into Trump, including the one-sided kangaroo court #Jan6 Committee, the Democrats and media are demanding House Republicans and @GOPLeader not investigate Joe Biden. Now this is what @brithume calls chutzpah. (1)🧵
How many times did you hear from 2016 to 2020 that the House and Senate needed Trump's taxes, etc.? The Democrats were so proud of their efforts to investigate President Trump they still have a congressional page devoted to it:

oversight.house.gov/oversight-of-t… (2)
The Oversight Committee says it looked into 1) security clearances, 2) the (phony) issue of emoluments, 3) the Trump Hotel D.C., 4) Ethics and Transparency, 5) Michael Flynn (?), 6) Immigration and Border Issues, 7) National Security and 8) Voter Rights. (3)

As #Midterms results come in, I am posting again my essays on fascism, theocracy, and white supremacist patriarchy and its footsoldiers:

On Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of the most dangerous politicians in the U.S. today

feministgiant.com/p/a-white-supr…
Marjorie Taylor Greene is so dangerous, I wrote two essays about her within days of #Jan6

If Marjorie Taylor Greene was a Muslim...

Fascism and theocracy don't happen overnight.

On white Christian zealotry. Theocrats are difficult to see when they look like you.

The criminal thug street gang/#Jan6 #insurrectionists/election deniers, the Proud Boys, are fully-embedded inside @MiamiDadeGOP, and working as poll workers in #MiamiDade. This is why @GovRonDeSantis and Little @marcorubio won’t denounce them. #VoteBlueForDemocracy 👇👇👇 Image
@MiamiDadeGOP @GovRonDeSantis @marcorubio #Miami is BLUE. What do you think these freaks will get up to next week? I predict nothing good.
@MiamiDadeGOP @GovRonDeSantis @marcorubio “That’s right, you heard it right, I’m working the poll, cry some more liberals,” said Gabriel Garcia in a video obtained by Twitter user Joshua Ceballos and the Miami New Times. He was bragging about his role as a poll worker."

🪡 MAGA extremists now openly flaunt support for Putin’s Dictatorship currently murdering, raping in illegally occupied and annexed parts of Ukraine.

Truly the #Midterm2022 election is a fight to save US democracy.

#Ukraine #MAGA #Trump #MidtermElections #Jan6 #RoeVWade
2 🪡 Trump’s love of Dictators was signalled quite early on, in his fan mail to Vladimir Putin in December 2007.

At the time Putin was brutally suppressing protests for freedom led by @Kasparov63 in Moscow.

#MAGA #Trump #Ukraine #Midterms #MidtermElections2022
3 🪡 Over the years this love of the Russian Dictatorship has led to Trump applauding Putin’s poll ratings & ‘genius’

Poll ratings in a Dictatorship, as we all know, are not a true and realistic reflection of reality.

A week after #Jan6, I wrote this:

"If Donald Trump could give birth, it would have been to Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, both of whom are clearly created in his image"

And 3 weeks after #Jan6, I wrote this:

If MTG was a Muslim, she would be in Guantanamo Bay, in shackles. But because she is white, evangelical, and a woman--a rich one at that--she is instead a member of Congress in the most powerful country in the world. feministgiant.com/p/if-marjorie-…

“Republicans have the momentum” means fascists have the momentum. If we were honest and understood the gravity of the moment for our democracy, we’d say that. We’d tell voters that.

It’s like our media is on terminal Autocorrect, just won’t face and say what the GOP has become.
We need to speak clearly, like Fanone here. Bannon declared war on the US for a fascist Republican party. He and Trump unleashed a violent paramilitary coup on #Jan6 b/c the fascists failed at the ballot box. NOT making that link clear, we normalize them b4 another election!😣
And we've stopped making the critical link between the authoritarian fascist GOP & their 24/7 mass propaganda machine, spreading lies and hate to oust Democrats from power (GOP's already ousted their little-d democrats in primaries) to seize control of govt, starting w/the House.

Good morning to everyone except the treasonous seditionists, coup-plotters, domestic terrorists, and fascists.

Did you know that Missouri AG @Eric_Schmitt’s loyalty to Trump means he supports 5 out of 5 of these things??

That’s not propaganda— here are the receipts:

🧵 /1 Image
@AGEricSchmitt has pledged total loyalty to Trump and the #MAGA agenda, and has even intervened in his legal defense to show his unwavering support of Trump to the judges overseeing the prosecutions of his cases.

And Trump is guilty of all 5 offenses.

Let’s take a look /2
TREASON: Donald Trump attempted to overthrow the government, and gave aid and comfort to domestic enemies who participated on #Jan6.

Before, during, and after Jan 6, Trump conspired to coordinate with the insurrectionists and planners. /3

Why a new version of my 2019 book, Red State Christians: a #thread for #launchday

Link to new version: bookshop.org/books/red-stat… (also available on @amazon and @BNBuzz + an indy bookstore near you (my favorite!))
I spent 2018 traveling across America interviewing Christians in red states + counties to unpack Christian support for Trump in 2016.

Hillbilly Elegy by @JDVance1 had recently pubbed, and a certain sort of apologist narrative for white rural Americans was en vogue ...
This narrative had some merit (I've seen rural despair firsthand, + the ravages of the #opioidepidemic) - but it was often too shallow, and it lacked the theological depth that understood the role of religion + God in @GOP support for Trump

Now deleted tweet from CJ Pearson.

Pearson is the executive director of Young Georgians in Government and executive director of Teens for Trump. He is also a political advisor and active in Georgia Republican politics.

en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/C._J._Pea…
The now deleted tweet said:

"President Trump has endorsed our Stop The Steal protest on #JAN6 at the US Capitol.

We need all hands on deck so I’m headed to DC alongside @RepVernonJones,
@ali, and @JodyHice.

Please help us get there safely! ⬇️

The tweet claiming President Trump endorsed the "Stop the Steal" protest was still available as recently as 7/18/22.

🧵 Former CIA officer here. If I took classified intelligence - let alone Top Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information about nuclear weapons - I would expect a visit from federal law enforcement. That’s the FBI’s job, to protect our national security. /1
We don’t know if the Top Secret nuclear weapons info was about the US arsenal or a foreign government - but this represents an enormous breach of our national security and if the latter, could compromise intelligence sources and methods and possibly lead to death of our spies./2
We don’t yet know why Trump took these Top Secret documents and refused to return them. But a question every American should be asking - after Trump’s actions on #Jan6 to retain power, how confident are you that he would not sell out our national security to benefit himself? /3

HAPPENING NOW: Judge Metha holding pretrial conference re Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy trial now set for Sept. 26. Defense seeking to delay it due to House #Jan6. Haven't got to that yet. Discussing jury selection
Mehta re questionnaire: 'Brevity is better here….nobody wants to have a 2 week jury selection.' Also he says he thinks open-ended Qs about media consumption may be unhelpful (doesn't mention if they're improper).
Rhodes lawyer Linder says defense recently had a three-day 'work weekend' for several defense attys in Dallas where they worked on questionnaire and stipulations. Linder: 'We are making big striders to getting ready...I don't think we can realistically be ready in Sept.'

HAPPENING NOW: Sentencing underway for Guy Reffitt, 1st #Jan6 defendant to go to jury trial, which ended with five felony convictions. Among those charges: witness tampering for threatening his own son. Earlier: politi.co/3MzkCvy
Judge Friedrich says she concerned that govt request for 15 years is far beyond what others have gotten. Judge: 'His decision to exercise his constitutional right to go to trial should not result in a dramatically different sentence.'
Friedrich: 'The government is asking for a sentence that is three times as long as any other defendant and the defendant did not assault an officer.' She acknowledges he was convicted of being in possession of firearm on Capitol grounds.

On Nat'l Whistleblower Day, it’s important to recognize reprisal whistleblowers sometimes face, & fight to end it. Recent example: DHS IG repeatedly impeded & delayed investigations into whistleblower retaliation—which may have set the stage for #Jan6. pogo.org/investigation/…
P.S.: if "DHS IG" sounds familiar, it’s because Inspector General Ken Cuffari’s time at DHS has been rife with misconduct, including suppressing findings of sexual misconduct & domestic violence at the department, quashing investigations involving the Secret Service... (cont⬇️)
...leading up to the 2020 election, including one into violence at Lafayette Square in June 2020, and most recently, hiding knowledge of deleted Jan. 6th texts.

Despite mounting evidence continuously exposed by @EpochTimes that some law enforcement officers engaged in brutal, unprovoked attacks against essentially peaceful #Jan6 protesters, every one of them has been cleared of wrongdoing. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/exclusive-capi…
However, several documents obtained exclusively by @EpochTimes show other officers were investigated for being friendly with protesters, 6 of whom were found guilty and disciplined for their actions. theepochtimes.com/exclusive-capi…
According to a Sept. 12, 2021, news report, the US Capitol Police Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) launched 38 internal investigations related to police conduct on #Jan6, 2021.

Many of the investigations were prompted by anonymous tips. theepochtimes.com/exclusive-capi…

"The OIG Joseph V. Cuffari did not press the dept leadership at that time to explain why they did not preserve these records...

Cuffari also failed to alert Congress to the potential destruction of government records."

💥"There was no order"—Trump's own Defense Secretary testified that Trump NEVER ordered Nat'l Guard troops for #Jan6. Pathetic liar Trump claims he did & Pelosi rejected it. And the GOP & GOP propaganda media shamelessly blame Dems for Trump's terrorist attack/coup/insurrection.
💥“prosecutors have asked…detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 and January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers & advisers about fake electors and sending electors back to the states”
AG Garland is on it >> Justice Dept received phone records of key Trump officials and aides—including Mark Meadows—in April. BEFORE the @January6thCmte hearings in June & July.

The DOJ criminal probe into Trump & his coup attempt has apparently been going on for months.
