Reps. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) have applauded the convictions of members of the far-right Oath Keepers group, who played a role in the Jan. 6, Capitol attack. Their convictions took place on Tuesday.

In a joint statement the two note that the convictions show that the rule of law is going to be enforced and that this decision reinforces the wrongness of the violence that took place on January 6th, when there was an attempt to block the transfer of power and overturn the 2020 election.

Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the Oath Keepers, and Florida chapter leader Kelly Meggs were both convicted on charges of seditious conspiracy. This infrequent charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years imprisonment.

However, three other members of the group were not convicted of seditious conspiracy. Instead, they were found guilty of other charges. All five members of the Oath Keepers were convicted of obstructing an official proceeding and four were also convicted of tampering with evidence.

Thompson and Cheney also commented on the committee’s role in showing how the Oath Keepers and other extremist groups planned the attack following former President Trump’s call to assemble on Jan. 6, 2021. They wrote that some of the individuals responsible for this scheme have now been found guilty, but it is important for accountability to exist in every part of the events that led to the Jan. 6, Capitol attack.

  2. this woman is the worst person ever to be in the Republican Party, she does not belong here. the new congress must act on this incivility by hate people whom are inventing every type of stupid crimes that does not exist. insurrection .. where are the bullets, guns .. seditious conspiracy, conspiracy of what??.. there were not conspiracy, and Trump never incite the people to commit any crimes. But democrats were the one that incite the crime, they had their people into the crow and it shows very clear how they manipulate to enter the capitol, besides, Pelosi, DC mayor, never asked the national guard that Trump requested. this is obstruction of justice by democrats whom are always inventing their crimes.
