Four Oath Keepers found guilty of Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy

Source: Washington Post

Four members of the far-right Oath Keepers group were convicted of seditious conspiracy Monday, joining founder Stewart Rhodes in being found guilty by a jury of plotting to keep President Donald Trump in power by force.

Seditious conspiracy charges are rarely used and even more rarely successful. At Rhodes’s trial only he and Florida Oath Keepers leader Kelly Meggs were found guilty of the crime, while three associates were convicted of less politically-loaded charges.

Joseph Hackett, 52, ; Roberto Minuta, 38; David Moerschel, 45 and Edward Vallejo, 64, were described by federal prosecutors as armed and dangerous traitors, and by their attorneys as hapless has-beens who stumbled into chaos.

“They claimed to wrap themselves in the Constitution, but they trampled it,” prosecutor Jeffrey Nestler said in closing arguments. “They ignored the will of the people,” he said, but “had the audacity to claim to be oath-keepers.”

47. I did actually find a brief mention in the OP article

Hackett and Moerschel traveled to D.C. from Florida with Meggs and followed him into the Capitol at 2:38 p.m. Minuta was in a separate Oath Keeper group providing security for Trump confidant Roger Stone that morning. Stone refused to leave his hotel because the Oath Keepers could not guarantee him access to the presidential stage, according to the testimony. When the riot started, Minuta and the others left Stone and rode hotel golf carts over to the Capitol. They entered around 3:15 p.m. and were pushed out a few minutes later, as Minuta shouted at the officers, “All that’s left is the Second Amendment!”


I remember in some of the early reporting after the insurrection, there was mention of these groups planning to "stage weapons" at various locations outside of the Capitol complex so that they could be quickly retrieved. I also recall something about how they had rented the golf carts - am guessing they settled on those because they were available at a nearby golf course and I think those also have little storage trunks to put stuff (like golf bags which are probably similar in size to rifle bags).

20. I had put the "no paywall" link in the "comments"

No paywall

There was nothing in the article about sentencing - they normally do that months later and might announce when a sentencing hearing would eventually occur.

I expect they are being held until sentencing regardless given the seriousness of the charges - AND just found the NBC article that indicated that they will be held under "house arrest" until sentencing -

Four Oath Keepers convicted of seditious conspiracy in Jan. 6 attack

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta ordered the four to be placed under 24-hour house arrest with limited exceptions and limitations on internet usage until their sentencing, “notwithstanding the nature of these charges, which are undoubtedly serious.”

It bugs me that the sentencing is delayed for so long, I really don't understand this. seems rather at the discretion of the judge I guess?

At least some of these cases are finally being tried by juries.

I know I have had to put the laptop in accessibility mode to get the bigger fonts but then some webpages get screwed up with that so I am adjusting the magnification up or down anyway as needed.

And with respect to separate sentencing and the time lag - that is pretty much standard except for things like plea deals and probably some other crimes with mandatory explicit fines/incarceration, etc. The need for the sentencing hearing is usually to give time for prosecutors & defenders to gather and present aggravating and mitigating factors in order for a judge to decide within the recommended ranges, what to actually mete out as a sentence.

Many of us having been holding our breath a long long time. First with Mueller, then with Garland, and now the latest appointed prosecutor guy.........can't remember his name.......

The guys getting nailed are purely "low hanging fruit" which is always the case in our judicial system......

Of course, the possibility of prosecuting anyone higher than these guys may be a moot point due to the fact they will all plead not guilty as they have already claimed for years, and if it goes to a jury I fully expect "jury nulification" with at least a few one or two of the jurors being a voter in the group of 70 million who voted for them not once but twice......

48. Gotta say that compared to all the other convictions on other charges, the sedition charge

'due process" -- from their arrest and charging on November 3 2022, to January 23 -- was pretty darn fast.

Hundreds of those charged have taken over a year to process from charging to conviction.

50. "Hundreds of those charged have taken over a year to process from charging to conviction"

That's because most of those charged were not D.C. residents (who had ultimate jurisdiction). So they each had to be positively identified and then cases had to be developed with "probable cause" in the jurisdictions where they resided.

And most of those jurisdictions had "acting" U.S. Attorneys running their offices, in some cases since BEFORE the official transfer of power on January 20, 2021, and most AFTER that date (with some staying on at the request of the President until a replacement could be nominated and confirmed).

Once those non-D.C. district offices finished processing the suspect, the cases were then dumped onto the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia (the current "permanent" one, only having been confirmed in November 2021) to further process and either get plea deals or schedule trials.

54. I think because not only did they not need to spend a lot of time trying to ID them

they knew they were part of organizations that they had been monitoring for years.

But more importantly, they also had informants embedded in both the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys.

Even with partial info from them, it helps to get a case developed much quicker (especially if any of the informants were wearing wires or managed to have data like texts/chat logs, etc., that may have provided some details on planning).

57. I think they are going to need to rope in the next layer up first

I.e., the "management" - the "Capos" and advisors involved in the different aspects of this nightmarish organization.

Stone (Capo in charge of the thug soldiers), Ghouliani (Capo in charge of the Kraken lawyers), Eastman (Capo architect of and point of contact for the Congressional challenges), Clark (Capo-as-DOJ-plant to bolster the false claims), Meadows (Consigliere - monitoring all aspects of the operation and reporting back), etc.

I think this is why the chatter keeps going about getting Meadows to flip/plea bargain because he was apparently aware of all the balls that were in the air, and was reporting back the status. Doing something like that might require granting immunity (and protection).

Yep, chatter. But by now there likely exists enough of a pattern of behaviors and communications from Meadows to prosecute, and I'm more for charging -- Jack Smith errs on that side -- and less for immunity, especially for as slippery an aider as he. This isn't personal; we need justice at these levels, since Meadows is a Koch guy, as is his whole "freedom" caucus. And I want the oligarch of oligarchs to be shoved back off, and made to stay away from, the First Branch. Bad enough that devil owns so many statehouses.

60. At this point, it's not so much a matter of deciding to prosecute

but a matter of distilling it all down to something that a JURY will CONVICT for. The same thing is going on in Fulton County GA with Fani Willis. There is a ton of material that has been gathered and they have to select the strongest and most compelling to present to go with to charge on, with the expectation of going to a jury trial with it,

I think the past and current prosecutions of both the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys will be helpful for how to present info that is digestible enough and solid enough to bat away any defense arguments about simply being bystanders and not having any intent to overthrow the government.

I.e., there needs to be a clear distinction made between what they would argue is a "First Amendment right to petition the government to seek redress of their grievances" and a more nefarious plan to thwart a peaceful transfer of power.

Past prosecutions lost that argument, I believe, and got sedition convictions. Upcoming cases' solid evidence will prove the conspiracy side that drove those previous sedition wins. So no immunity deals, imo.

without what would be a "I had no control over what those people did" defense that would certainly be made, you will need a literal smoking gun in the hand or enough "witnesses" to turn. At least for the "public" evidence we're aware of, the calls to GA provide some.

With respect to Meadows, you have stuff like this - https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/26/politics/meadows-texts-phil-waldron-seize-voting-machines-election-fraud/index.html

And more succinctly, this pretty much shows his role of Consigliere, how wide-ranging his contacts were, and how he brings in yet another layer of criminals - GOP members of Congress - https://talkingpointsmemo.com/feature/mark-meadows-exchanged-texts-with-34-members-of-congress-about-plans-to-overturn-the-2020-election

Hackett was first arrested in May 2021. He was named along with several other Oath Keepers (including Elmer Rhodes) in an indictment for seditious conspiracy that was unsealed on January 13, 2022. Originally, all of those named in the indictment were going to be tried together, but it was decided to split the group of defendants into two groups, with Rhodes et al being tried first, followed by the trial of Hacket etc.

The investigation, arrest, indictment and trial took more than a year.
