BOMBSHELL: Stewart Rhodes, Ray Epps, John Sullivan Subpoenaed to Testify in 1/6 Oath Keepers Case
The leader of the Oath Keepers and two of the men captured on video urging people to enter or proceed into the U.S. Capitol on January 6 have been subpoenaed by the defense to testify in the government’s case against Kelly Meggs, an Oath Keeper accused of conspiring to storm the Capitol.
Stewart Rhodes, Ray Epps, and John Sullivan have subpoenaed to testify at Meggs’ trial in a move defense attorney Jon Moseley told National File he believes will prove his client’s innocence, and will prove the entire prosecution to be politically motivated.
Rhodes’ presence in Washington, D.C. has been the subject of much skepticism, with Darren Beattie’s Revolver News publishing a series of investigative reports suggesting he may be working with the federal government, or its intelligence agencies, in some capacity.
While many of the Oath Keepers who Rhodes led to Washington, D.C. that day were arrested – some, like Meggs, have been held without bail for nearly a year – Rhodes has not been charged.
Rhodes was voluntarily interviewed by the FBI, but has not been arrested, and the government does not appear to suspect him of committing crimes on January 6.
Epps’ identity became known in conservative circles due to the exhaustive work of Revolver News, which compiled extensive video showing Epps urge conservatives gathered in Washington, D.C. to storm the U.S. Capitol on and before January 6, 2021.
Epps has not been arrested and does not appear to be suspected of committing any crimes.
Sullivan, meanwhile, is a member of the left wing fringe of politics – affiliating himself openly with Black Lives Matter and Antifa – and attended the January 6 protests disguised as a Trump supporter.
Sullivan celebrated as protesters entered the U.S. Capitol, identifying himself as part of the crowd and appearing to urge them to continue the advance, potentially raising questions about his organizational impact that day. Sullivan was ultimately charged and forced to surrender the money he gained from selling his films.
