The Department of Justice (DOJ) began arresting members of the Oath Keepers right after the January 6, 2020 insurrection. Now federal prosecutors have worked their way up to the arrest of attorney Kellye SoRelle, who stood with the White supremacist group’s founder Stewart Rhodes outside of the Capitol Building during the attack. The home-grown terrorist organization’s lawyer was charged with four counts in the attempted coup, according to The Washington Post.
The ultra-conservative organization’s lawyer was in Junction, Texas when he was arrested. And he will go before a federal judge in Austin on Thursday:
‘[The D.C.’s prosecutors charged Sorelle with] conspiracy, obstruction of a federal proceeding, tampering with documents, and misdemeanor trespassing in a restricted building or ground.’
In addition, SoRelle will face the charge of “aiding and abetting others to do the same on Jan. 6, 2021 and of persuading others to withhold or destroy records.”
The prosecutors’ brief indictment claimed that SoRelle was implicated in the failed overthrow of the U.S. government during the months of December 2020 and January 2021:”
‘[SoRelle] did knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with other persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury, to corruptly obstruct, influence, and impede an official proceeding, that is, Congress’s certification of the Electoral College vote.’
The full indictment can be read via The POLITICO.
