Oaf Creepers leader told Jan. 6 committee he still sees 2020 election as 'illegitimate,' lawyer says

Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes told congressional investigators earlier this month that he still considers the 2020 election “illegitimate,” his defense attorney revealed Wednesday in court.

But Rhodes’ attorney, fighting to keep his client out of jail while he awaits trial on seditious conspiracy charges, said this shouldn’t count against Rhodes since lots of Republicans say the same thing.

"There’s plenty of public leaders that are still saying that on a regular basis," Rhodes’ attorney James Bright said.

Although Bright didn’t specifically identify Donald Trump, the former president has continued to relentlessly stoke false claims about the integrity of his defeat. Trump recently floated the possibility of pardons for those who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in support of his efforts to subvert the election.

2. Calling an election rigged but accepting the results if it says you "won"? Not legit.
