WATCH: Oath Keeper Founder’s Wife Says Extremist Militia Is Training For Civil War

Tasha Adams, the estranged wife of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, has been speaking out openly about her husband’s activities, answering questions for anyone who will ask. In her latest interview with CNN she describes the mindset of the extremist group, and explains that they’ve been training for civil war.

Adams is working to be legally divorced from her husband, who is among those charged in the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building. In fact, her effort to leave him dates well before that — by almost three years, she says. Last March she started a GoFundMe, explaining that her legal representation had dropped the case because she couldn’t keep up payments and had been fighting for years for an acceptable settlement regarding custody and finances.

Now she’s on CNN explaining how the group obsesses over the idea of a second civil war, and the roles they hope to play in it.

Bear in mind that while nearly a dozen Oath Keepers, including Rhodes, have been arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy in the Capitol insurrection case, the Anti-Defamation League describes them as a “large but loosely organized collection of right-wing anti-government extremists” — the “large but loosely connected” part being the most relevant here, as it demonstrates that Rhodes’ arrest doesn’t disable the group, and the Capitol arrests don’t significantly diminish its size or force.

While there is a formal national leadership, on the local level many Oath Keepers are essentially self‐organized, and form official, semi‐official or informal groupings of Oath Keepers.
