The Oath Keepers militia group traveled to Washington DC in January of last year and played an important role in the insurrection. It was expected that the leader of the group, Stewart Rhodes would be arrested. And while it took over a year, that finally happened this week.
Rhodes ex-wife, Tasha Adams, appeared on CNN Friday night. She told host John Berman that it was “such a relief,” to see the man arrested.
“I knew I lived in fear he might show up here,” she explained. “But the — just setting that weight down and knowing we were safe and my kids were safe and my kids’ school doesn’t have to worry, that was a relief I didn’t know existed.”
“He is very dangerous. He lives very much in his own head. He sees himself as a great leader, he almost has his own mythology of himself and I think he almost made it come true as seeing himself as some sort of figure in history and it sort of happened. He’s a complete sociopath, he does not feel empathy for anyone around him at all.”
