Roger Stone tied to Oath Keepers on eve of U.S. Capitol attack, could be in serious legal trouble

Last week the Feds brought the first conspiracy charges against a leader of the “Oath Keepers” extremist group in relation to the January 6th U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack. Conspiracy charges open the door for others in the conspiracy to also be charged – and that could be bad news for Roger Stone.

Stone’s name has already been widely linked to the incitement of the Capitol attack, but is there enough to criminally charge him for it? Now it turns out Stone not only met with the Oath Keepers the night before the attack, Vice says he used them as security. This means Stone will have one heck of a time trying to explain how he wasn’t conspiring to incite the attack the next morning.


Donald Trump pardoned Roger Stone just before leaving office, but that was only for specific crimes in relation to the Mueller probe. If Stone ends up being charged as part of the Capitol attack conspiracy, his pardon won’t help him at all. We suspect Stone will end up in prison after all.
