Whoa! Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and nine other Oath Keepers members charged with seditious conspiracy justice.gov/usao-dc/pr/lea…
Correction: Rhodes and 10 other Oath Keepers charged w/ seditious conspiracy in Jan. 6 assault. Also newly charged is Edward Vallejo of Phoenix
From the #OathKeepers seditious conspiracy indictment:

Rhodes sent a link to a BitChute video to the "Leadership Intel Chat" on 11/7/20, endorsing the message of the Serbian author of the video: "Yes, I’m calling you for violence if that is the only way. Who cares?"
Rhodes allegedly told his fellow Oath Keepers he was in contact with the author of the BitChute video, and he had sent a written set of recommendations based on the Serbian experience. They included:

"We stormed the Parliament

"And burned down fake state Television!"
The NC chapter has been heavily cited in the Oath Keepers prosecution, and here the govt claims that the NC chapter held a training in December 2020 that focused on roadblocks. But Doug Smith, leader of the NC chapter has not been charged, & broke w/ the national org after 1/6/21
The government has long alleged that defendant Thomas Caldwell led a quick reaction force team staged with weapons outside of DC. The new seditious conspiracy indictment cites a 2nd man, Edward Vallejo, as an alleged QRF leader
The govt alleges that "the North Carolina QRF team leader (again, nobody fitting that description has been arrested to date) reserved 3 rooms at the Comfort Inn Ballston — allegedly occupied by the QRF teams from NC, AZ & FL.
The role of the NC Oath Keepers remains a question mark. Doug Smith, then president of the NC chapter, has said that when they saw the mayhem at the Capitol, they turned around & were back on the bus headed home by 4 p.m. columbuscountynews.com/2021/01/state-…
But the NC QRF leader, whoever they are, seems pretty active! Responding to Florida Oath Keepers leader Kelly Meggs on Jan. 2: "My sources DC working on procuring Boat transportation as we speak."
Virtually everyone who mobilized Trump supporters to go to DC on Jan. 6 has since claimed that "antifa" was responsible. But here's Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes at 1:30 a.m. — as the assault was in progress — contradicting: "Nope. I'm right here. These are Patriots."

#January6th update: In a filing opposing defendant Edward Lang's motion for release, the govt alleges that Lang repeatedly kicked an officer identified as "Sgt. JM" as he was stuck against the door inside the Lower West Terrace tunnel. ImageImage
Here's a still from a video that, according to the govt, shows Edward Lang kicking Sgt. JM. "Around 2:57 p.m., Lang and another rioter violently pushed a door against an officer's head and Lang simultaneously kicked at that officer." #January6th Image
Lang fought with police, by his own admission, for 3 hrs at the tunnel — the site of "one of the more intense and prolonged clashes between protesters and law enforcement."

Following the assault on Officer Michael Fanone, rioters began a 2nd wave of violence around 3:50 p.m. Image

THREAD: The feds have taken note of Capitol rioter Jeffrey Grace's involvement in clashes w/ antifascists in Portland, OR this past weekend, & are requesting that his conditions of release be modified to prohibit "possession of firearms, weapons or destructive devices." /1
The government's motion notes that during his initial interview w/ the FBI, Grace "denied membership with other organizations, including the Proud Boys," & then goes on to say "the investigation also revealed that Grace was an active member of the Proud Boys." /2
That's not the only deception on Grace's part that's noted by the government. The motion also notes that "contrary to Grace's assertions, Grace's adult son Jeremy Grace accompanied him inside the Rotunda." /3

EXCLUSIVE from @RawStory:

Rod of Iron Ministries, a Moonies spinoff that incorporates the AR-15 into worship, mobilized support for the Jan. 6 insurrection as part of vibrant far-right network in NE Pennsylvania, alongside Frank Scavo & Teddy Daniels. /1
Pastor Sean Moon led Rod of Iron members onto the scaffolding on the west side of the Capitol. One ROI member reflected: "If the scaffolding collapsed from so many people, it would be tragic, but it would be a good way to die as an offering." (photo via @Shutterstock) /2
While Pastor Sean led the main group to the west plaza, Rod of Iron Ministries member Robert Pickell joined rioters pushing against the police line outside the Columbus Doors on the east side. /3
