Judge nixes Oaf Creepers leader's bid to delay Jan. 6 trial

The high-profile seditious conspiracy trial for the leader of the far-right Oath Keepers extremist group will begin this month after a judge on Wednesday rejected a last-minute bid by Stewart Rhodes to replace his lawyers and delay his case.

Rhodes said in court papers this week there had been a “breakdown” in communication between him and his two lawyers, who he claimed weren't defending him forcefully enough in the Capitol riot case. Rhodes' new lawyer argued that the Oath Keepers founder has not been given enough time to adequately prepare for trial and urged the judge to delay his trial at least 90 days.

But the obviously irritated judge called the claim that Rhodes is being denied a fair trial “simply false.”

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said Rhodes' suggestion that his lawyers are not providing effective counsel appear to be “complete and utter nonsense” and questioned why concerns about his lawyers are surfacing for the first time just weeks before trial.
