“If Solzhenitsyn Can Deal with Being in Gulag in Siberia, I Can Deal With this Jail in Virginia” – US Political Prisoner and Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes Speaks with Gateway Pundit (AUDIO)

On January 6, 2021, several members of the Oath Keepers marched up the US Capitol steps, stood in a line, and sang the National Anthem with the tens of thousands of patriots outside the building.

The Oath Keepers organization 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.” Democrats see men and women like this as a threat.

Members of the Oath Keepers stand around and take photos inside the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Several members of the Oath Keepers, who were in Washington DC only to provide protection to speakers at several organized protests that week, walked into the US Capitol. They were seen taking pictures inside the building.

Now the Biden Department of Justice, under the direction of Matthew Graves, the US Attorney for the District of Columbia, is threatening those same men with life in prison. The Biden regime is making up charges and lying about what happened that day. The Biden regime refuses to release any security video to exonerate the dozens of men and women they STILL have locked up for their actions that day. Four Trump supporters were killed or died during the protests.

On Saturday Oath Keepers founder and president, Stewart Rhodes called Jim Hoft from The Gateway Pundit from prison in Alexandria, Virginia. Stewart was arrested in January and is being held in prison by his government as a political prisoner.

Stewart Rhodes was arrested in an FBI raid for his role in the Jan. 6 protests. Stewart was in Washington DC that day. He told members of the Oath Keepers to leave their weapons in their hotel rooms in Virginia outside of DC. Stewart did not enter the US Capitol. He never ordered his members into the US Capitol and told Gateway Pundit he was surprised when several members went inside.

Despite this, Stewart has been sitting in prison for months and the Biden DOJ is threatening him with life in prison.

Stewart was moved from Dallas to Oklahoma and to Alexandria, Virginia where he is now being held.

Stewart Rhodes told GP about his current situation, the soulless treatment by the government, and his vow to never trade in his personal integrity.

Stewart Rhodes: Anyone who is in a situation like this must have strong faith. I read the Bible every day. My faith is strong… If Solzhenitsyn can put up with being in a frozen gulag in Siberia I can deal with being in a jail in Virginia… This is nothing compared to what our founders went through.

The Oath Keepers who are being held in prison are not allowed to communicate with each other.

Stewart told The Gateway Pundit that Kelly Meggs, Kenny Harrelson, and Jessica Watson are all solid and standing strong despite the abuse from their government.

God bless them.
