Stewart Rhodes is the founder, boss and kingpin of the Oath Keepers.
The Oath Keepers, we are told, are America's largest militia, the most prominent antigovernment group in the United States, and the preeminent right-wing domestic extremist insider threat to the entire U.S. military.

Whatever the truth of these hyperbolic claims, the fact remains: the Oath Keepers are the most extensively prosecuted paramilitary group alleged to be involved in 1/6. Indeed, it was the alleged "pre-planned assault" on the Capitol by Stewart Rhodes's alleged Oath Keepers lieutenants that was used as the key talking point to try to convert the day's events from a protest into an "insurrection."

But Stewart Rhodes is not simply a key figure in the Oath Keepers. Stewart Rhodes is the Oath Keepers, according to Oath Keepers board member Richard Mack....

The Justice Department argues that Stewart Rhodes both substantially organized and activated an imputed plan to use violence, on 1/6, in real-time, through a series of encrypted Signal messages beginning at 1:38 p.m., as Trump concluded his rally speech on the National Mall, and 62 minutes before Oath Keepers lieutenants allegedly formed a "military stack" to rush the Capitol doors.

These facts alone, as alleged, are more than legally sufficient to secure an indictment of Stewart Rhodes. We will walk you through the mountains of direct and circumstantial evidence built on top of these allegations, but readers must understand this: the only reason Stewart Rhodes is not in jail *right now* is because of a deliberate decision by the Justice Department to protect him.

Indeed, it is unclear whether the FBI has even sought to search Stewart Rhodes's residence, personal belongings, or electronic devices, other than a single iPhone allegedly seized on the streets from agents in unmarked FBI vehicles in late April (since returned). For reasons discussed below, there is good reason to suspect the FBI will pursue a tightly controlled and very limited scope of investigation into Stewart Rhodes,. Beyond that narrow scope, they may not want the information they are likely to find.

Why doesn't anyone at the FBI or DOJ want him?

If 1/6 was an "insurrection," why protect the one man who, more than any other individual referenced in the charging documents of the 530+ open criminal cases, comes closest to the media's ravenous description of a "lead insurrectionist?"

Is it possible that the Oath Keepers, the most prominent antigovernment group in the United States, has been run, in effect, by the United States government itself and nobody has mentioned it until now?

Revolver News generated tremendous discussion and controversy with our previous piece exploring the possibility that some of the unindicted individuals referred to in the 1/6 charging documents may be undercover agents or informants.

With this piece, we intend to focus this discussion on a single individual, Person One; i.e., Stewart Rhodes the leader of the Oath Keepers.

If it turns out that Stewart Rhodes has had a relationship with the federal government, the implications would be nothing short of staggering.

Because when you're going after an organization, you work from the bottom up, getting as many people to testify against the bigger fish. You don't work from the top down.

The feds know that people will follow things they feel passionately about, and if it doesn't suit what they think is appropriate for that time, they infiltrate and try to tear it down from the inside. They've done it for decades, to groups of all races and affiliations, from at least as far back as the civil rights era, though likely even further back. Now it seems it's groups like the oath keepers, and others like them, turn.

This shouldn't be surprising if true, what's a shame is that hundreds of lives have been ruined because people allowed themselves to be led into something on January 6th, that there was no way that it would end the way they wanted it to. Yes they did it of their own free will, but that doesn't mean the nudge into that direction didn't come from someone outside their group and in the government. It for sure wouldn't have been the first time.

At the end of the day, it's still just speculation. It appears to be some pretty reasonable speculation but speculation nonetheless. What we need are real lawyers suing, FOIA requests, and possibly even Congressional Hearings to figure this out. This is something the left should be concerned about as well. The FBI could just as easily try the same thing with Antifa, BLM, ALF, etc if the political narrative is convenient to do so. The FBI has their own narrative to maintain and it isn't "we hate the right" as the left may wish but rather "we will do whatever we can to look like the good guys to keep the budget rolling".

That hasn't been the Fed's MO in the last decade +. They identify targets and either infiltrate organizations with informants or breed individual targets personally to commit crimes and then arrest them for the public news and pats on the back for a job well done.

Working up from the bottom takes too much time, money, resources, etc. We're not in the 80s and 90s.

Ironical that the "greatest threats" to the USA today, in the eyes of media, DOJ, etc., are these "radical right wing militias" and "white supremacist" groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers. I'm pretty sure groups like Proud Boys and Oath Keepers only formed or only grew in the last year because law and order have been ignored and the safety of American citizens have been threatened by the lack of any accountability regarding real violent militant groups like Antifa, BLM, etc.

exactly. it's pretty clear at this point that any organization the fbi targets is probably > 90% fbi agents.

i thought they overplayed their hand with this white supremacy nonsense but luckily for them the majority of americans are fat, stupid and gleefully ignorant and so they just nod their heads along.

Well they did tell us that they're the greatest threat (right wing groups) so if it turns out that truly they're the rogue federal government agencies then they were actually right
