Yale Law School graduate, former paratrooper, and far right wing militia group The Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes was arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy during the January 6th, 2021 riots in the United States Capital as the United States Congress was busy certifying that Joseph Robinette Biden was the winner of the 2020 election for president of the United States.

Mr. Rhodes along with ten other conspirators led a group of armed men who stormed the US Capitol Building breaking into the Capitol Rotunda shouting phrases such as “hang Mike Pence,” and “kill Nancy Pelosi.” While other people in the Capitol took part in the “Storming of the Capitol,” the Oath Keepers were at the “tip of the spear” as they were the first group to break into the Capitol building, and led the charge into the legislative building.
