Joseph Hackett

The government alleges Hackett was part of Signal chat threads and a GoToMeeting call with ‘Oathkeepers’ founder Stewart Rhodes and others. They claim he was working with those in this group to transport firearms to the DC area for use on Jan. 6th.

On Jan. 6th, Hackett and 4 others allegedly walked into the Capitol, placing their hands on each others’ backs in a stack formula. After exiting the Capitol, he and the group allegedly gathered outside the Capitol with Rhodes.

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