One of the men at the Capitol attack on Jan. 6 was former FBI section chief Thomas Edward Caldwell, retired US Navy Commander, who has become a member of the Oath Keepers, a far-right anti-government militia. When the FBI searched his home in wake of his arrest, they found a hand-written hit list.
"On January 19, law enforcement searched Caldwell's residence pursuant to a search warrant issued in the Western District of Virginia. One record law enforcement recovered was a document entitled, 'Death List,'" said the indictment from the Justice Department. "Handwritten on the document was the name of an election official from another state. In Caldwell's red barn, law enforcement recovered a flag that resembles the American flag in the upper left corner with the rest of the flag resembling the Christopher Gadsden flag —a coiled rattlesnake on a yellow background over the words 'DON'T TREAD ON ME.' On the flag are a number of signatures written in black marker. Included in the group of signatures are what appear to be 'Don Crowl' and 'Jessica M. Watkins' under the words 'OHIO Regulars.'"
The indictment also said that they located about $750 in ammunition and "what appears to be a concealed firearm intentionally built to look like a cell phone, sold by 'Ideal Conceal Cellphone Pistol.'"
The indictment didn't list the names on the hit-list.
