The Oath Keepers and Proud Boys didn't go to the rally, they went to the Capitol to open the door. They also made the connection, very clearly in their testimony, that they were there because Trump told them to go there. Trump connected himself to their moves. That's a planned attack on the Capitol during a joint session of Congress. That meets the legal definition of treason, and that means his little inner circle, including himself, Eastman, Powell, Flynn, Giuliani, and Meadows, were conspirators to commit treason.

That's where I go.
