BREAKING: OathKeepers Founder and President Stewart Rhodes Arrested — Charged with Seditious Conspiracy a Year Following Jan. 6 Protests

Oath Keepers President Stewart Rhodes

In March 2021 Jim Hoft from The Gateway Pundit and Patty McMurray from 100% Fed Up spoke with Stewart Rhodes, the founder of the O*th Keepers three months after the January 6 protests.

The Oathkeepers leader reached out to Gateway Pundit for the interview.

The Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Stewart Rhodes explained the role of the Oath Keepers in providing security at the Ellipse and at associated rallies on January 5th in the nation’s capital.  Since last year several Oathkeepers have been arrested following the January 6 attacks.

For the record… When we recently asked Rhodes and his attorney for a follow-up interview we were ignored.

On Thursday the Department of Justice arrested Stewart Rhodes — ONE YEAR after the January 6 protests!

Rhodes, and 10 members of The Oathkeepers were arrested and charged with sedition conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6 U.S capitol riot.

Rhodes is the first person charged with sedition.

Rhodes was arrested in Little Elm, Texas on Thursday morning. He was accused of organizing an armed plot to storm the Capitol to stop the certification of Joe Biden.

Investigative reporter Julie Kelly responded to the news.

Indictment of Rhodes announced right before bond hearing for Ken Harrelson, Oath Keeper charged with no violent crime who’s been in DC Gulag since last March.
