  1. Summary
    Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the Oath Keepers, a far-right militia involved in the January 6th Capitol riot, was found guilty of seditious conspiracy along with another member of the group. Three others were not found guilty of the charge, which is rarely used and dates from the Civil War. All five were convicted of obstructing a Congressional proceeding.

    The seditious conspiracy convictions are among the most significant thus far of the Jan. 6 prosecutions. Prosecutors argued that the Oath Keepers were unlike the other Capitol rioters in that they actively planned to subvert the election. “We’re not getting out of this without a fight. There’s going to be a fight,” Rhodes said in a recording from Nov. 9, 2020, days after the election. Prosecutors also said the Oath Keepers stockpiled weapons.

    Defense attorneys argued that the records shown by prosecutors only indicated empty talk and that the Justice Department had failed to provide evidence of a plan beyond a reasonable doubt. One member of the Oath Keepers was revealed to be an FBI informant during the trial.

Should Congress impose a contract on rail unions to prevent a nationwide strike?

369 votes, 37 comments

Context: Congress holds vote on intervening in negotiations between rail unions and companies.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

Yes - The nation cannot afford the consequences of a strike, and so one must be averted at all costs. While I am sympathetic to the workers, I myself am paid by the government for a significant part of my income, and they continue to reduce their compensation rates. At present, they are at 1990 compensation levels. So though I’m sympathetic, I side with the greater good in this case.


No - Railroad companies are experiencing record profits and we're supposed to believe they can't give their workers a week of paid sick leave? The rail industry...



Unsure - I understand the overall cost to the nation here. I also feel nobody is being forced to have a certain job. I'm not a big fan of...
