Oath Keepers leader found guilty of conspiracy in Jan. 6 trial

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another four members of the far-right organization have been charged with felonies in connection to protests of January 6 last year. Rhodes was slapped with a seditious conspiracy charge, with the jury finding him guilty of masterminding the plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

The Department of Justice said government information showed that Rhodes entered the restricted area of the Capitol grounds and "directed his followers" to meet him in the building," adding that some Oath Keepers teams were stationed outside, ready to "rapidly transport firearms and other weapons into Washington, DC, in support of operations aimed at using force to stop the lawful transfer of presidential power."
