Judge rejects defense effort to throw out an Oath Keeper associate's Jan. 6 guilty verdict

  • U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta upheld an obstruction conviction against Thomas Caldwell, a retired U.S. Navy intelligence officer who was involved in the Jan. 6 Capitol attack. Despite not entering the Capitol, evidence showed Caldwell aided extremists who stormed the building.
  • Caldwell was convicted of obstructing an official proceeding and tampering with documents or proceedings related to Congress certifying Joe Biden's 2020 election victory. He was initially charged with seditious conspiracy but was cleared of those charges. Caldwell's sentencing is set for Nov. 16.
  • Caldwell allegedly helped coordinate quick reaction force teams stationed outside the capital city that were designed to arm extremists if needed. Although the weapons were never deployed, prosecutors argued they were not for defensive purposes.
