Oath Keepers claim 'opposite' of sedition because Trump could order militia attack on Capitol: analysis​

With opening arguments in the Oath Keepers' seditious conspiracy trial scheduled to begin on Monday, the New Yorker took an in-depth look at the legal argument being put forth by founder Stewart Rhodes and co-defendants.

"In the trial, Rhodes’s lawyers will attempt to sway the jury using an argument rooted in Rhodes’s version of right-wing militancy," Mike Giglio reported. "The Oath Keepers, they will argue, were not at the Capitol to fight with law enforcement on January 6, 2021. They were acting more as an extension of law enforcement, awaiting orders from Donald Trump, whom Rhodes had urged to invoke the Insurrection Act, to prevent Joe Biden from taking power. He implored Trump to call up members of the Oath Keepers and other armed Americans to serve as part of a Presidentially sanctioned militia."

The story noted a pre-trial motion where Rhodes' lawyers wrote, "the Government would like this Court to believe that is sedition, when in fact, it is the opposite. It is loyalty to an oath taken in defense of the Country.”

The co-defendants could face twenty years in prison if convicted.

"After Rhodes’s arrest, Phillip Linder, a well-regarded Dallas attorney, and his partner, James Lee Bright, became his defense lawyers. Sidney Powell, the lawyer who’d spread Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election, reportedly hired Linder and Bright via her new foundation, as well as paid defense bills for another Oath Keeper charged alongside Rhodes; a senior member of the Proud Boys; and other defendants in January 6th cases," the New Yorker reported. "Last month, Rhodes attempted to replace the two attorneys and delay his trial; Judge Amit Mehta, of the D.C. district court, denied the motion, but the new lawyer Rhodes had selected, Edward Tarpley, was added to the defense team. Linder and Bright continue to direct Rhodes’s defense."


Bright said they were aware that Rhodes' defense could potentially be used to justify violence in the future and that Jan. 6 could have been worse, noting “how dangerous Trump was in that moment to America.”

He also noted how Trump incited his followers with giving a clear command for violence.

“Isn’t that where Trump is kind of a genius? He knew what to tell people. He figured it out,” Bright said. “He used the hell out of these people. He knew their fears. He knew their dreams.”

And no one from the FBI was out directing people traffic. And the Capital Police really tried hard to secure the building.

And ... Trump did it all.

Trump's band of redneck followers, in their costumes -- carrying those posters, signs, flags and all, are a threat to our democracy. They are so powerful that they can overthrow our nation without so much as carrying a weapon. They have power over the media. They control the message. They control technology companies -- those rednecks on those boards of directors. They cast undue influence within the FBI, CIA, and DOJ. They influence our kids at their schools. They destroyed our border. They've burned our cities to the ground. They're even a threat to the earth's temperature.

It's unbelievable how these leftwing extremists think...... Hell, one of them was defending shooting an unarmed woman the other day.

They are a god damned disgrace.

The Oath Keepers founder is using the idea of his group being a valid Militia under the command of former president Trump. They were just trying to enforce the laws as defined by their leader and president.
I don't think Trump wants them to be saying he was telling them what to do & the Court doesn't seem deposed to accept their defense notion.

Can you show us this ‘clear command’ or are you making it up?

You’re making it up

Give it up 2Lying, the Democrats cheated and created voter fraud. That’s the only way to get the Potato and Congressional Democrats in power. There was no insurrection. It was a peaceful protest and despite your left wing spin, that all it was.

Peaceful my ass. Beating police with flagpoles and other objects, spraying them with Bear Spray, yelling 'hang Mike Pence'. It looked like a scene from a Frankenstein movie where the good town folk persue the 'monster'.

It was a peaceful protest until the cops shot and killed an innocent protester. Stop your constant whining 2Lying. If the Democrats didn’t cheat, it wouldn’t have come to this.
