Lots’a Luck, Bub (The Stupid Coup, Part Infinity)

Here’s a unique gambit that the lawyers for Oaf Keeper Stewart Rhodes are actually going to try: “I was just following orders that never came.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — The defense team in the Capitol riot trial of the Oath Keepers leader is relying on an unusual strategy with Donald Trump at the center.

Lawyers for Stewart Rhodes, founder of the extremist group, are poised to argue that jurorscannot find him guilty of seditious conspiracy because all the actions he took before the siege on Jan. 6, 2021, were in preparation for orders he anticipated from the then-president — orders that never came.

Rhodes and four associates are accused of plotting for weeks to stop the transfer of presidential power from the Republican incumbent to Democrat Joe Biden, culminating with Oath Keepers in battle gear storming the Capitol alongside hundreds of other Trump supporters.

Cannot see a flaw in that argument.

    To my knowledge, none of the Nazis at the Nuremberg Trials used this as a defense which means Stewart Rhodes is creating history and not repeating it. So there.

    In his defense, he probably never worked for the actual mob, where the tactic of suggestion, & therefore plausible deniability that orders were given, is legendary. If he had he would have known what kind of support to expect.
    Sucker. Loser. (h/t to tfg for these terms being used to describe actual military veterans)
    (note – I assume “alleged” is included in the term “legendary”)
