Jan. 6th Was a Seditious Conspiracy
Bad news for Roger Stone: His Oath Keeper bodyguard just pled guilty to seditious conspiracy and is cooperating with prosecutors
Good news for America. Bad news for Donald Trump and Roger Stone. Joshua James, the Oath Keeper who provided “security” to Roger Stone on January 6th, just pled guilty to seditious conspiracy and obstruction. He is cooperating with prosecutors.
