Why SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY charges against the #OathKeepers significant? I compiled some fodder, a thread packed with video and info...
My 📸 via @SipaUSA
One stack of #OathKeepers entered the East Doors. Rioters made way for them. I decided to follow them. The yellow arrow is me. I was spun around, unknowingly finding myself next to Joe Biggs. Rejoined w the Oath Keepers in the rotunda.
Included in the #OATHKEEPER indictment.

Ali wanted to set up a tent city... "We'll call it the District of #Trump
Outside, during the riot... a call for backup and an understanding that they want to hold it until January 20th ... Biden's inauguration
Openly calling for reinforcements on social media posts.
The court document. Read what is in charge!
This is Ed Vallejo. He was one of the Oath Keepers in the seditious conspiracy indictment unsealed today. He's alleged to have organized the "quick reaction force."
In the words of my colleague @sandibachom "Just like to say, I've filmed the Oath Keepers since Charlottesville and on Jan 5th and 6th. They are NOT a brain trust, they are soldiers following orders. We still have to hold the generals who gave the orders"
Thanks all!

I'm prepping for a pretty big journo project.

Thanks @guardiannews for including my shot in this week's photo roundup of the struggle for human rights and freedom. @SusanSarandon @rogerwaters #FreeAssange
The extradition case against #JulianAssange is an unprecedented attack on press freedom--globally.
If found guilty, it will effectively criminalize the work of all journalists and publishers anywhere in the world who attempt to, as Chris Hedges puts it, "shine a light on the inner workings of power."
