The Wheels Grind On; Insurrectionist Ed.

Stewart Rhodes, the founder and leader of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group, and 10 other members or associates have been charged with seditious conspiracy in the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol, authorities said Thursday.

The indictment is available for casual reading.

The reach of the law is extending beyond those who were either inside the Capitol or who assaulted police officers.[1] Those who provided the funds or support for the Insurrection might want to lawyer up before the stainless-steel braclets are snapped on their wrists.

And so it begins: They pretty much go after complex crimes like these from the bottom up, and since there are so damned many of them, they are just now getting to the militias and such.
Merrick Garland's prosecutions of Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols and the Unabomber had zero leaks, 100% convictions and zero overturns on appeal. If he means what he said in his speech the other day, he'll get these motherfuckers.
Which is fortunate, as the select committee will most likely cease to exist after the midterms.

Wait, what? How can that be? I thought they were just tourists. Helmeted, camo wearing, radio coordinating tourists. With stick, bats, pepper spray, and all the other weapons tourists take to go look around the Capitol. Huh? Seems I've been misled.

Let's make a note here that the stringent DC gun laws required the traitors to leave their firearms stashed in Virginia and elsewhere. No guns on site is probably why Nancy Pelosi and Mike Pence didn't get a necktie party or two 9 mikemike rounds in the head. No guns allowed in town can be effective if enforced, just like in our wild west.
The racist tools of Russia wanted to exercise their 2nd amendment murder rights like little killer Kyle but gun control slowed them down since the gats were out of town.
