He sent a grave warning to Mr. Trump: “You’re going to get railroaded. “And I was found guilty of seditious conspiracy, although they had zero evidence of an actual plan. “That’s what’s going to happen to President Trump.”Rhodes predicted that Mr. Trump would face a left-leaning judge and jury in the District of Columbia just like the other convicted Jan. 6 defendants. The Justice Department won seditious conspiracy convictions against Rhodes and Oath Keepers’ Florida chapter leader Kelly Meggs in November after a two-month federal trial in the District. The seditious conspiracy law was adopted after the Civil War to be used against Confederates who continued to rebel against the U.S. government.
