The founder and leader of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, Stewart Rhodes, and ten other members were indicted on Wednesday for sedition, announced the Ministry of Justice on Thursday. Rhodes, a 56-year-old former US Army paratrooper, and his associates are accused of participating in a “conspiracy” to “oppose by force the transfer of presidential power”.
