The leader of the right-wing extremist group Oath Keepers, Elmer Stewart Rhodes, was arrested on Thursday in connection to the January 6 Capitol riot, several news outlets reported.
Rhodes has said he was at the Capitol that day but did not enter the building, according to the Washington Post.
The arrest comes after the House select committee investigating the riot in November issued subpoenas to Rhodes along with the leaders of other far-right groups including the Proud Boys and the 1st Amendment Praetorian. The groups are the most high-profile right-wing extremists to have been involved in the violent breach of the Capitol during the certification of then-President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
