Full Headline: Oath Keepers leader Elmer Stewart Rhodes pleads not guilty to seditious conspiracy in Capitol riot investigation




The leader of the far-right Oath Keepers group pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to seditious conspiracy connected to the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Elmer Stewart Rhodes is one of 11 defendants who were charged with seditious conspiracy earlier this month for their roles in the failed insurrection.

Tuesday's status conference related to three separate cases involving the Oath Keepers: an original indictment which charged nine defendants with conspiracy to interfere with Congress' activities; the seditious conspiracy indictment against 11 defendants including Rhodes; and a separate indictment against Oath Keepers member Jonathan Walden, who was charged with obstructing Congress and illegally being at the Capitol.

Prosecutors on Tuesday formally dismissed the original conspiracy indictment.

Unfortunately the article doesn't mention if he's still being held in jail pending trial.

13. Maybe he'll get a gag order, judges do that sometimes

Roger Stone was released on bail, and the judge didn't allow him any TV, twitter or public interviews of any kind. Elmer should get the same treatment. The guy is going to prison eventually, but he still gets a fair trial first.

4. If not ...

If it wasn't seditious conspiracy, jackass, what was it?

5. why drop the conspiracy indictment?

you would think that the communications that they thought were encrypted that the FBI was able to decode would easily prove a conspiracy.

7. This is what it looks like

The original charge was for 18 USC 371, which is conspiracy.

They would have had to dismiss that charge to use the more severe 18 USC 2384 Seditious Conspiracy charge.

6. According to this article:

U.S. Judge Postpones Decision Over Whether to Release Oath Keepers Leader Stewart Rhodes

Early Monday afternoon, a federal judge decided to postpone for an additional 24 to 48 hours the decision over whether to release Rhodes on bail.

It is from yesterday, so we should hear either today or tomorrow.

I really hope they don't release him. He is a very disturbed and dangerous man.

16. His reason for asking to be released,

is that if he is so dangerous, why did it take so long to arrest him. Not kidding.

21. interesting, it's the question that popped up in my mind.

sort of seems obvious, and I would like to know the answer too.

I firmly believe he is very dangerous, and remains a great danger to society.

Broken Clock strikes accurately twice in a day.

I'm curious why did it take so long to arrest him? What was the Prosecutors response?

9. "Elmer"

It's time to put this boy out to pasture. Or, maybe send his ass to the glue factory and he can live up to his namesake, doing some good. If they do that, I just hope they don't turn him into the paste, if you know what I mean! 😂
