'I do not have heavy weapons': Navy Lieutenant Commander charged with sedition over Jan 6 denies plotting to bring heavy weapons over the Potomac and says God will save him from the charges

One of the 11 people charged on Thursday with sedition for their role in the January 6 riot has denied conspiring to bring heavy weapons to the uprising, and called the charges against him 'clap trap.'

Thomas Caldwell, 67, of Berryville, Virginia, was arrested shortly after the insurrection and spent over a year in jail before being freed on medical grounds in March 2021.

On Thursday, the charge of sedition - punishable by 20 years in prison - was added to his previous charges of conspiracy, destruction of government property, obstruction of an official proceeding, violent entry or disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building.
