A former member of the far-right Oath Keepers testified as a witness in federal court on Thursday that he believed the group's founder, Elmer Stewart Rhodes, was in communication with a U.S. Secret Service agent in the months before the Capitol riot.

The former Oath Keeper, John Zimmerman, told the courtroom that he heard Rhodes' side of a phone call with the agent ― or someone who represented themselves as an agent ― at a September 2020 rally for then-President Donald Trump in North Carolina.

Asked whether Rhodes had any direct contact with Trump, however, he responded, "Not that I recall specifically," according to Business Insider.
