Jury begins to deliberate in Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy trial

Hello, readers of the American political blog. A federal jury in Washington begins deliberations in the trial of five members of the Oath Keepers militia, including its founder Stewart Rhodes. The group are charged with seditious conspiracy, a rarely used charge that prosecutors say is an apt way to describe the alleged conspiracy they attempted on Jan. 6 to arrest Joe Biden upon taking office. The trial will be an important indicator of whether the government can secure convictions against the most violent actors in the insurgency, and a verdict could come at any time.

Here’s what else is happening today:

  • Top House Republican, Kevin McCarthy visits Border Patrol personnel in El Paso, Texas. Expect him to talk about the GOP’s plan to deal with the surge of migrant arrivals at the US-Mexico border when they take over the House next year, and criticize Joe Bidenthe management of the situation.

  • Biden is heading to Nantucket, Massachusetts this afternoon for the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Antoine Fauci and Covid-19 Response Coordinator Ashish Jha will appear at the daily White House press briefing at 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time, where they will likely speak about the threat of coronavirus during the holiday season.
