Justice Department Announces Sedition Charges Against Oath Keepers

Yesterday the Justice Department announced the first sedition charges related to the January 6th insurrection. The case brought seditious conspiracy charges against 11 defendants including Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes, and 10 other members. Many of which were already facing charges for storming the U.S. Capitol building and deny wrongdoing. The latest accusations remove any sense that prosecutors believe the riot emerged from just a group of protestors with new details about the planning and logistics alleged to have predated the Capitol breach.
