These charges are separate from the 16 members of the #OathKeepers who are also charged with their own alleged conspiracy in the case. These #ThreePercenters are linked to the California-based American Phoenix Project.
The indictment, returned by a grand jury in Washington on Wednesday and made public on Thursday, says the effort by the six grew out of the American Phoenix Project — a California-based group created to protest coronavirus restrictions.
Some or all those indicted identified themselves as “Three Percenters,” who view themselves as the modern-day equivalent of the small fraction of American colonists who actively fought the British during the Revolutionary War era, the indictment claims.
The charges in the case include conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of an official proceeding and unauthorized entry to a Secret Service-restricted area — in some cases, with weapons.
The new indictment appears to be the third major conspiracy case lodged by prosecutors in connection with events at the Capitol on Jan. 6.
