Here’s a twist I’ll bet you didn’t see coming: federal authorities accuse Thomas Caldwell of being a leader of a far-right extremist group called Oath Keepers and helping to organize the January 6th attack on the US Capitol. But in requesting that he be released from jail pending trial, his attorney not only denies that Caldwell was ever in the building, and claims he has physical limitations that would keep him from traveling or forcing his way into a building, but he also says that Caldwell worked as an FBI section chief from 2009-2010, had a company that did classified work for the FBI, and held multiple security clearances. Oh, and he denies all charges.

Some of that about not being at the Capitol or involved in the planning contradicts video evidence and intercepted communications that the FBI reportedly has. If nothing else, his defense hints that this could be one of the most interesting trials since the Chicago Seven.

    The Oath Keepers are seditious insurrectionists and did not follow the templated laid out by the founders for seeking a remedy. They went straight to an unconstitutional breaking of the law.

    We need to keep whittling away corruption and illegal acts. Arresting and taking to to trial, evidence presented and due process to occur .
    If guilty appropriate punishment!
    Keep pushing back. I’d say fight back but that seems a little harsh.

    You know Mike, if all you're going to do is repost the same stuff that was up yesterday or a day ago? I'm just going to unsubscribe. It's getting a little tiring to be honest.
