Lawyer says riot suspect served as ‘security’ for rally


A member of the farright Oath Keepers charged with rioting at the U.S. Capitol met with Secret Service agents before the siege and received a VIP pass to the rally where then-President Donald Trump spoke, according to a court filing. A defense attorney for Jessica Watkins said in Saturday’s filing that the Oath Keeper was in Washington, D.C., to “provide security” for the speakers at the Jan. 6 rally, where she stood within 50 feet of the stage.
