US Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutors revealed communication between Oath Keeper leaders that show coordination with the Proud Boys and other militia groups before the Capitol Insurrection.
The chats have shown Kelly Meggs, an Oath Keeper leader, saying he had “orchestrated a plan” with the Proud boys for January 6th.
“We have made contact with PB and they always have a big group. Force multiplier.”I’ve been communicating with [redacted] the leader. We are going to march with them for a while then fall back to the back of the crowd and turn off. Then we will have the proud boys get in front of them … we will come in behind Antifa and beat the hell out of them, ” said Meggs in one message.
As early as Dec. 25 the two groups were talking about providing security for individuals who would be joining the Capitol rallies.
“Trump’s a staying in. He’s gonna use the emergency broadcast system on cell phones to the American people. Then he will claim the insurrection act,” said Meggs on December 26th.
Meggs has pleaded innocent since his arrest on charges that he helped plan and coordinate the attack on the Capitol and is still waiting for the trial.
