Oath Keeper Among First to Cop Plea Deal with Prosecutors for Capitol Riot

One of the more unlikely participants of the Capitol riot has copped a plea with prosecutors.  

While more than 300 people have reportedly been arrested, Jon Ryan Schaffer, an acknowledged member of the Oath Keepers, is the first to make a deal.  

Reports stated that Schaffer will more than likely be entered into the Witness Protection Program in exchange for information the led to the riot on January 6.  

The Deal 

Schaffer is reportedly pleading guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding, and entering and remaining in a restricted building with a dangerous or deadly weapon as part of his deal.  

I say “unlikely” because the Oath Keepers are some pretty bad dudes, heavily armed and considered one of the more dangerous extremist groups in the country.  

While the actual number of members is not truly known, everyone is in agreement that they are one of the more organized and dangerous far-right groups in existence.  

Like founder Steward Rhodes, all members of the group are former military and/or first responders, meaning they have serious training behind them and are probably one of the few groups that can actually back up its threats.  

With many believing the Oath Keepers used the January 6 rally for Donald Trump as a cover to carry out a planned breach of the Capitol, it is no wonder that Schaffer could possibly wind up in WPP for rolling over.  

If Schaffer talks, we will all be listening because it could completely flip the narrative as to how the riot itself came to be.

  1. They still do nothing about the ANTIFA and BLM who have done worse. I just say that the oath keepers had just had enough and we trying to protect our country. At least they had the quts to do it.

    1. Carol,
      Remember the Democrats have to accuse loyal Republicans for the violence. How about Chicago, Minneapolis, New York and more happening on Bidens watch, but
      they’ll just claim Trump somehow was responsible for it.

      1. Roy Fredrichsen , You Spoke the VERY TRUTH!!! Bless You!! God Bless America & Our God Loving Citizens!!! United We Stand!!AMEN!!!! AMEN!!!!! AMEN!!!

  2. Maybe he won’t tell them what they want to hear. But it would be funny if he implicated Piglosi in the so called “ plot”, after all, she set it up!

  3. The government & the lame street media are not at all concerned with why the Capitol Riot took place. All any of them is interested in is slamming/shamming & villainizing Trump & demonizing/marginalizing Trump supporters. The truth does not fit their lying agenda.

    1. I still believe that Pelosi was behind the riot. She would do anything to make Trump look bad because she could not control him.

  4. I am an oath keeper , unlike the elected non-representatives in our current government. I took the oath when I was 18 to protect and defend, all enemies foreign and domestic, as did all of our government representatives. I will support and defend the oath that I took until death. These others decided to defend the oath for about one millisecond after it was completed.
    I am not a right wing extremist but a constitutional conservative who is done being painted with the broad brush of the left’s narrative

    1. Very well said. I also believe and strongly support the oath I took when I joined the military at 17 years old. I will standby and defend as per my oath.

  5. We now have a coward who was a member of the Oath Keepers. It doesn’t sound like the Oath Keepers are all that bad of a threat if Schaffer is a member, and he takes a plea deal like that. It’s also ironic that this administration goes after conservative groups when BLM and ANTIFA are the ones doing the destruction of our cities and towns and committing all sorts of violence against people. Typical of Totalitarian States like this one, now that Joe Biden and his administration are in power.

Based off estimates from officials, as many as 24,000 illegal immigrants have escaped into the U.S. unpursued just since Biden falsely claimed "we've now gotten control" of the border crisis he created.

The price of Biden’s border crisis continues to grow.

And he still refuses to change course.


Biden has rolled back policies promoting border security, peace through strength, and a Republican pro-growth economic agenda.

The results are clear: crisis after crisis.
