Who are the oath keepers? What to know when Stewart Rhodes goes to trial

Stewart Rhodes is indicted in federal court in Washington along with four people described by prosecutors as “top lieutenants” in the militia movement group he founded, the Oath Keepers. Rhodes is the highest-profile defendant charged so far in the investigation into the 6 January 2021 attack at the US Capitol and is accused of directing a month-long effort to forcibly prevent President Biden’s inauguration. Rhodes is among 14 facing the historically rare charge of seditious conspiracy in what the government has called one of the largest investigations in American history.
