Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes Found Guilty of Seditious Conspiracy in Jan. 6 Case

WASHINGTON—A jury on Tuesday convicted Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another member of the far-right militia group of seditious conspiracy by plotting to forcefully disrupt the peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election. Three other members of the group were found guilty on lesser charges in the closely watched trial stemming from the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol. After a seven-week trial in Washington, D.C. and three days of deliberations, the jury said Mr. Rhodes and one of his co-defendants, Kelly Meggs, plotted to use force to block Congress from formally certifying President Biden‘s election victory.
