Roger Stone and his acolytes…including Graydon Young
Graydon Young, an accused Capitol rioter, agreed to plead guilty on Wednesday and as part of his plea deal, he may take the stand against his co-conspirators.
Young, who’s believed to be a member of the Oath Keepers, a right-wing militia organization, is accused of entering the Capitol as part of a “stack,” a tactical formation used for moving through a crowd. Seen with what appears to be communication devices, prosecutors have used the Oath Keepers’ coordination on January 6 to bring about conspiracy charges that allege they premeditated the attack on the Capitol.
On Wednesday, he became the second member of the Oath Keepers to plead guilty. Jon Schaffer, an alleged member of the Oath Keepers, pleaded guilty in April to one count of obstruction of an official proceeding and one count of entering and remaining in a restricted building with a deadly or dangerous weapon…
Before entering the Capitol, Young swapped his “boonie” hat for a tactical helmet and wore a tactical vest, according to court documents. He also allegedly forwarded an email to Laura Steele, another defendant, that called for Oath Keepers to travel to Washington, D.C., to “protect events, speakers and attendees.”
“As we have done on all recent DC Ops, we will also have well-armed and equipped [quick response force] teams on standby, outside DC, in the event of a worst-case scenario, where the president calls us up as part of the militia to assist him inside DC,” the email said.
Wonder if he’ll ever get to share a cell with Trump? If he can stand the stink of decay?
