Alleged "Oath Keepers" militia members plotted ahead of Capitol attack, authorities say | CBS News |

Thomas Edward Caldwell, Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Crowl were charged Tuesday with conspiracy, conspiracy to impede or injure an officer, destruction of government property, obstruction of an official proceeding, unlawful entry into a restricted building and violent entry or disorderly conduct.

Virginia resident Caldwell, 65, is believed to hold a leadership role within the "Oath Keepers," an extremist group which believes the government is infringing on citizens' rights and recruits heavily from military and law enforcement.

Federal investigators say they have recorded communications between Watkins and other alleged Oath Keepers via the Zello walkie-talkie app on a channel called, "StoptheSteal J6." In the recording, a voice believed to be Watkins says, "We have a good group. We have about 30-40 of us. We are sticking together and sticking to the plan." 

[Inside the Capitol] ... An unknown male voice responds, saying, "Get it, Jess. Do your f---- thing. This is what we f---- [unintelligible] up for. Everything we f--- trained for."

... "Here is the direct number for Comfort Inn Ballston/Arlington... strongly recommend you guys get one or two rooms for a night or two. Arrive 5th, depart 7th will work," the message read.
