On January 6, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.

Several members of the extreme right-wing militia “Oath Keepers” have been sentenced a good two years after the storming of the US Capitol. A jury found four men guilty on Monday in the capital Washington of “seditious conspiracy” – a crime rarely used in the country’s judicial history, as several US media reported unanimously.

The accused were accused of plotting to use force to prevent the democratic transfer of power after the 2020 presidential election. Only in November was the leader of the militia, Stewart Rhodes, also convicted of “seditious conspiracy”.
