Elmer Stewart Rhodes

Rhodes is the founder of a national organization known as the Oathkeepers. Members of the Oathkeepers volunteered to provide security to speakers at the Stop the Steal rally.

The government accuses Rhodes and others of coordinating to overthrow the government on the basis they coordinated travel, discussed equipping themselves with firearms and tactical gear, and stated personal beliefs to “defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic” and “not obey unconstitutional orders” in public and private conversations.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
