The far-right militia group Oaf Creepers used Facebook Messenger during the Capitol siege to hunt

for lawmakers.

Thomas Edward Caldwell, the leader of the far-right militia group known as Oath Keepers, has been accused by the FBI of coordinating an effort to track down lawmakers during the siege of the US Capitol building.

Caldwell, 66, was cited with leading the effort to locate members of Congress, The Washington Post reported.

Two others, Donovan Ray Crowl and Jessica Marie Watkins, were also accused of having conspired with the Navy veteran, The Post said.

Caldwell is said to have received Facebook messages updating him of the specific whereabouts of lawmakers while congressional offices were being ransacked, according to an affidavit included in court filings obtained by the George Washington University Program on Extremism.

Sounds like Caldwell should be recalled to active duty if you know what I mean.

1. Yes and court martialed.

As it is, however, I believe he's the first to be charged with conspiracy in the capitol attack.

2. I'm really starting to wonder if they had help from the inside.

And by inside, I mean someone or a group of people who are in Congress or were working security, or something. No way they could have got that far on their own. Time to find out who these people really are.

You don't send anonymous text messages to the leader of a terrorist sect by accident.

14. By "starting to", I think someone big.

Either a rep or a senator or both. They could have had help from the cops but I really think there was someone in the Congressional chamber who was helping them.

4. Good God, the guy is on Social Security already. Some revolutionary

At least I bet he gets Social Security. I bet he doesn’t know where it came from either. Libertarians, Jesus!

5. I know a retired libertarian couple--husband worked for a nonprofit

Dependent on federal grants; wife was a public school teacher. How does that make any sense?

6. Strip him of his Social Security and Pension.

Sedition has consequences.

Court Martial, dishonorable discharge, and Leavenworth for the next 20 years.
