The founder of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group has been arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy for allegedly organizing the January 6 attack on the US Capitol.

Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the anti-government group, was taken into custody by federal officials on Thursday, after a grand jury returned indictments against him and a core group of Oath Keeper members, accusing them of planning and carrying out the insurrection to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s election victory.

Rhodes is the highest-ranking member of an extremist group to be arrested in the deadly siege and it is the first time the Justice Department has brought a seditious conspiracy charge in connection with the Capitol riots.
