( – On Tuesday, James Breheny, a New Jersey man, was found guilty of obstruction of an official proceeding in connection to the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021. Breheny, 61, had previously pleaded guilty to the felony charge he faced connected to the case. According to the Court documents, the man is also affiliated with the Oath Keepers and is known as Seamus Evers.

Breheny, who had served as the Bergen County coordinator for the New Jersey chapter of the Oath Keepers, was found to have been a member of a group chat called “DC OP: Jan 21” on Signal, a platform that allowed encrypted messaging. In it, Breheny had had several discussions about preparing a team from NJ and also being in contact with many militia leaders who are also going to be joining the race.

In the court release, it is noted that the man’s actions, along with others, had disrupted the U.S. Congress as they were in the process of counting electoral votes and certifying the election results after the 2020 presidential election. As the Department of Justice pointed out, many other members of the group chat have also been indicted on conspiracy charges.

As part of the evidence presented, there is also video footage that shows Breheny entering the Capitol. He had also texted his associates to state that he had made it into the Capitol and that he needed to “clear chats.” His associates had also told him to discard his phone, delete everything and get a new phone.  These messages were all retrieved from his phone.
