One of the many insurrectionists from Jan. 6 is pleading guilty in Alabama Thursday.
HuffPost Justice reporter Ryan Reilly recalled that Alabama resident Lonnie Coffman was the supporter of President Donald Trump's who drove a truckload of weapons and Molotov cocktails to Washington, D.C.
According to Reilly, Coffman reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and will declare his guilt in court Oct. 26.
In addition to the 11 explosive devices he brought, the 71-year-old Army veteran also brought a crossbow, an semi-automatic rifle, three other guns, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, several machetes, camouflage smoke bombs, and a stun gun, the indictment says.
The case in Alabama involved only the possession of Molotov cocktails.

Some Republican officials have denied that the Jan. 6 attack was a violent one, insisting that there were no weapons.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told one local Wisconsin radio host, "This didn't seem like an armed insurrection to me. When you hear the word 'armed,' don't you think of firearms? Here's the questions would have liked to ask: How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired?"
