On Friday, our friends from The Gateway Pundit first broke the story of Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes agreed to testify before the January 6 committee, this was relayed to the outlet through a call from Rhodes’ attorney James Lee Bright.
The Gateway Pundit noted that Rhodes will appear as early as the next hearing on Tuesday, July 12.
However, according to CBS News’ Scott MacFarlane, Rhodes’ lawyer insisted that his testimony “be done live and televised” as a precondition to appearing before the committee.
Rhodes was charged in January with seditious conspiracy for his role in the January 6 protests.
Contrary to what the mainstream media has been spreading fake news, Rhodes reportedly told the Oath Keepers to leave their weapons in their hotel rooms. He did not enter the US Capitol and told his members not to either. And yet he is in prison being threatened with a life sentence.
As described on their website, Oath Keepers are a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who will “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Our friends from 100 Percent Fedup explained it further:
Rhodes has agreed to waive his Fifth Amendment rights and testify before the committee if they will allow him to testify live.
Rhodes was arrested in Little Elm, Texas, in January and accused of organizing an armed plot to storm the Capitol and stop Joe Biden’s certification as President.
He is now being held in Alexandria, VA, and does not want his testimony pre-recorded. The January 6 committee is known for fabricating evidence, doctoring footage, and presenting somewhat less than credible witness stories. And Rhodes is unwilling to participate in the clown show unless he can do so live, knowing his story will not be manipulated.
Stewart Rhodes spoke with Dinesh D’Souza and said he believed the FBI orchestrated J6.
