Washington DC’s CBS News affiliate reported last month:
While several of the indicted Oath Keepers allegedly followed up the events of January 6 by discussing bunkering down and continuing to resist the incoming Biden administration – including, according to court documents, possibly building North Vietnamese-esque fighting tunnels in the mountains of Kentucky – others have expressed regret for their participation. One, Graydon Young, told a judge in February he felt he’d been “duped” into joining the militia. The judge in that case, U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Wilson, rejected Young’s claims – and his bond – saying the evidence showed his participation in the Capitol riot was “intentional and purposeful.”
And here’s the latest.
Breaking: Oath Keeper to plead guilty, first among major Capitol riot conspiracy cases – a significant development as investigators continue to pursue extremist groups they believe planned an attack to help then-President Trump stop Congress from certifying the 2020 election.
