The Biden regime insists on taking political prisoners.
According to the latest reports, 11 Oath Keepers have been charged with seditious conspiracy—something of a rarity as Glenn Greenwald points out:
More than a year after 1/6 and with growing political pressure from Democrats, the Biden DOJ filed its first sedition charges — against Oath Keeper Stewart Rhodes. Sedition charges are very rare and hard: will be interesting to see if they can convict.https://t.co/UxJbCh0hYa

Political prisoners are allegedly facing inhumane treatment, yet criticism of the regime’s treatment of these prisoners has fallen on deaf ears.
The Epoch Times confirms:
The indictment, which was unsealed on Jan. 13, brings the first Jan. 6, 2021-related charges against Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, 56, of Granbury, Texas; and Edward Vallejo, 63, of Phoenix. Rhodes faces a count of seditious conspiracy and four other charges; Vallejo is charged with seditious conspiracy and three other counts.
It’s the first federal indictment alleging seditious conspiracy on Jan. 6, a charge that, upon conviction, carries a maximum prison term of 20 years.

THREAD: So with the indictment of the Oath Keepers founder and 10 others for sedition today, I think we can begin to square the circle on why another Oath Keeper, Ray Epps, wasn’t charged for incitement on Jan 6.

The Associated Press took the establishment tone:
Despite hundreds of charges already brought in the year since pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol in an effort to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory, these were the first seditious conspiracy charges levied in connection with the attack on Jan. 6, 2021.
It marked a serious escalation in the largest investigation in the Justice Department’s history – more than 700 people have been arrested and charged with federal crimes – and highlighted the work that has gone into piecing together the most complicated cases.
