It’s one of the most basic questions of the Capitol riot investigation: What was the rioters’ plan? What did they think was going to happen when they stormed the Capitol on January 6, as Congress certified the results of the Electoral College? There are lots of different answers — remember, thousands of people were there and never went near the Capitol at all — but one revealing look is contained in the Justice Department’s case against members of the Oath Keepers militia. It is an odd, hard to believe story, showing people living in a kind of fantasy world in which they could take the Capitol — while carefully obeying Washington DC’s strict gun control laws and carrying no firearms — and then change the course of U.S. history, and then head home. In this episode, a look inside their very strange plan for January 6.
