18th Alleged Oath Keeper Charged In Capitol Riot

Reuters reports:

An 18th person with links to the far-right Oath Keepers militia accused of taking part in the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot has been added to an indictment and pleaded not guilty on Friday. Brian Ulrich, 43, of Guyton, Georgia, who was arrested on Aug. 9, faces three riot charges, including conspiracy and obstruction of an official proceeding.

The indictment said that in late December, Ulrich engaged in discussions on an encrypted app saying: “The more patriots the merrier” and talked about “having a backpack with my ammo load.”

The indictment said that as the riot unfolded, Ulrich and several other defendants first rode around the Capitol in golf carts. After parking the vehicles, the indictment said, Ulrich and others then moved “in a stack formation” towards the Capitol.
