The Stupid Coup, Part Infinity

“Calling Mike Pence…”

Guys, another OafKeeper has pled guilty to Seditious Conspiracy:

A member of the far-right Oath Keepers militia on Wednesday admitted to engaging in seditious conspiracy during last year’s attack on the U.S. Capitol, the latest in a string of courtroom victories for the Justice Department.

William Todd Wilson of North Carolina pleaded guilty during a federal court hearing in Washington. He was the third Oath Keepers defendant to plead guilty to seditious conspiracy and obstruction charges.


A federal judge said Tuesday he is still “very seriously contemplating” the government’s request to reconsider his position on the obstruction charge hundreds of Capitol riot defendants are facing.

To date, U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols is the only judge on the D.C. District Court to dismiss charges of obstructing an official proceeding against any of the more than 700 defendants now charged in the riot. In a March order dismissing the count against Garrett Miller, of Texas, Nichols relied on a narrow reading of the statute — 18 USC § 1512(c)(2) — that would require a defendant to be accused of taking “some action with respect to a document, record or other object” in order to corruptly obstruct the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6. Nichols stuck to that reading in February when he dismissed the same obstruction charge in the case against another defendant, Pennsylvania police officer Joseph W. Fischer.

It’s almost like there was NOT legitimate public discourse going on.
