The seditious conspiracy charges are important for a lot of reasons, but in my mind the most important is that, should they be convicted, the Oathkeepers will be forever branded as traitors to their country.

Congrats Roger Stone, you're now just one step up the hierarchy from being criminally indicted for seditious conspiracy. You're fucked!
Just In: The FBI has arrested Stewart Rhodes, leader of the Oath Keepers, in conjunction with Jan. 6 - AND - the charge is seditious conspiracy, which carries a possible sentence of 20 years. This arrest, and the seriousness of the charge, are both hugely important.
We’re past “Did Trump incite a riot?” Today, we entered “Did Trump lead a seditious conspiracy?” territory.
Last week on January 6, 2021, DeSantis bragged no one had been charged with an insurrection. Today, 11 Oath Keepers were indicted for seditious conspiracy, 4 of whom were Floridians. @RemoveRon
Here is the just-released, 48-page seditious conspiracy indictment signed by United States Attorney for the District of Columbia Matt Graves. Digesting now. More to come . . . https://t.co/mSYKz6cknm
I encourage everyone to read the case the DoJ has put together against the 11 Oath Keepers they charged with Seditious Conspiracy today. Extremely thorough and truly terrifying. https://t.co/s3qNhJGccz
Today's seditious conspiracy charges should make Steve Bannon and Roger Stone very nervous.
January 6 was not a “normal tourist visit” as @GOP
wants you to believe. January 6 was an attack on our Capitol to nullify the election. The U.S. Department of Justice charged Stewart Rhodes of the Oath Keepers and others with seditious conspiracy. They are traitors. https://t.co/MFOcvObjYa
"Stewart Rhodes, the leader and founder of the far-right Oath Keepers militia, was arrested on Thursday and charged with seditious conspiracy for organizing a wide-ranging plot to storm the Capitol last Jan. 6 ...federal law enforcement officials said." https://t.co/2cO3PsQNkM
Seditious conspiracy: “to destroy by force the Govt of the US, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the US, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the US”

Trump should be arrested and charged with seditious conspiracy too.
After laying the first January 6th SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY charges on members of the Oathkeepers and it’s founder Stewart Rhodes today,
The DOJ has now stated that January 6th attack was modelled after a foreign coup.
