Oath Keepers Brought Explosives To D.C., Had “Death List” Of Election Officials, Say Prosecutors

Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes may be demanding a public hearing, where he can tell his side of the January 6th story, but it seems that law enforcement has plenty of information on him and his group even without his testimony. Among other things, prosecutors say that they have evidence that Oath Keepers transported explosives along with weapons intended for the attack.

Indictment documents for Rhodes, along with eight other Oath Keepers members (Kelly Meggs, Kenneth Harrelson, Jessica Watkins, Roberto Minuta, Joseph Hackett, David Moerschel, Thomas Caldwell, and Edward Vallejo) carry a long list of allegations, including caching weapons off-site on the outskirts of D.C. with Quick Reaction Forces, or QRFs; planning the attack in advance, including discussing plans for violence; and continuing to plan violent actions after the failed insurrection.

However, that’s not the end of what prosecutors are alleging against the group. According to CNN, a search of Caldwell’s home produced a handwritten “death list,” the names on which included a Georgia election official and a member of that individual’s family. (Caldwell denies being part of any assassination plot.)

That’s not all — the filing also alleges that Oath Keepers members transported explosives to the aforementioned QRFs, and were in possession of documents on bomb-making.

Furthermore, the filing, in portions shared by a CBS Congressional correspondent, also mentions the plan for ongoing violence planned with “government actors,” between the failed insurrection and Joe Biden’s inauguration.

“…evidence that certain co-conspirators, including Stewart Rhodes, Kelly Meggs, and Jessica Watkins discussed and prepared for violent conflict with government actors after January 6 and before January 20…”

Note that the original indictment also shows Rhodes purchasing thousands of dollars worth of weapons and gear in the days following January 6th, and in advance of the inauguration.
