At least six people seen guarding Trump allyRoger Stone entered the Capitol during the Jan. 6 attack, The New York Times reported on Sunday. 

The Times reviewed hundreds of videos and photos, as well as research from the Capitol Terrorist Exposers, that showed the six people, all associated with the Oath Keepers, guarding Stone on Jan. 5 and 6 and later inside the Capitol during the breach. 

Stone made two public appearances on Jan. 5, near the Supreme Court and later by the White House, during which five of the individuals were seen providing security for Trump’s longtime friend, according to video analyzed by the Times. One of the people identified by the Times drove Stone in a golf cart that afternoon. 

Footage shows Stone outside the Willard InterContinental hotel the following morning ahead of the raid, while accompanied by the sixth individual singled out in the report, in his only public appearance.

Videos taken at the Capitol later that day show all six of the individuals inside the building during the breach. The footage shows some of them meeting up with other Oath Keepers, who have since been charged, and others in hallways. 

Stone wrote in a statement last week that he “saw no evidence whatsoever of illegal activity by any members” of the Oath Keepers, noting that if evidence emerged “they should be prosecuted,” according to the Times.
