Six more tied to Oath Keepers charged with conspiracy in Capitol siege

The Justice Department charged a half dozen more Capitol rioters tied to the right-wing Oath Keepers group with a conspiracy to obstruct Congress, with the six joining a trio of militia-affiliated leaders who had already been hit with similar criminal charges.

This week, six additional individuals tied to the Oath Keepers were arrested and charged in federal court in the District of Columbia. Thomas Caldwell, Donovan Crowl, and Jessica Watkins had already been charged, and the DOJ said Friday that Graydon Young, Kelly Meggs, Connie Meggs, Laura Steele, Sandra Ruth Parker, and Bennie Alvin Parker had been arrested this week too.

A 21-page superseding indictment unveiled Friday alleged an obstruction “conspiracy” in which Caldwell, Crowl, Watkins, Sandra and Bennie Parker, Young, Steele, and Kelly and Connie Meggs “planned with each other, and with others known and unknown, to forcibly enter the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and to stop, delay, and hinder” Congress’s certification of the 2020 election, in which now-President Joe Biden had defeated former President Donald Trump.

The Justice Department said that Kelly and Connie Meggs, Young, Steele, and Sandra Parker “donned paramilitary gear” and joined with Watkins and Crowl in a “military-style ‘stack’ formation that marched up the center steps on the east side of the U.S. Capitol, breached the door at the top, and then stormed the building.”

Seems to me the Dims are suddenly desperate to cover themselves by indicting random protesters and claiming they were acting as agents for Republicans.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!
