DOJ official says there is evidence to charge sedition in Capitol riot

A DOJ official said federal investigators have found evidence that would likely allow the government to file sedition charges against some of those involved in the assault on the Capitol. The DOJ has filed cases against 400 suspects involved in the assault, but none have yet been accused of sedition. Anyone charged with sedition faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

This is political theatre to the highest degree, antifa literally sets up autonomous zones where they murdered people and forcefully overtook the government and authority with no repercussions. A couple of boomers walk into the capitol building and suddenly now, now it’s sedition? Please. If this goes through the US justice system is cooked.

So...any word on all the charges being filed against the people who set up ROGUE STATES inside several American cities, defaced monuments with impunity, terrorized the local population into submission and murdered the opposition with open pride? How about all the people in Big Tech and the "Democrat" Party who funded and openly supported the above? What a f$@!ng joke.

This is insane. The left is continuing to prosecute/persecute citizens with different political views. This is what third world counties and fascist dictators do.

“"But I will tell you this," he said. "I personally believe the evidence is trending towards that, and probably meets those elements."... And how many guns did you confiscate? None. And who were their leaders, the generals of this army of seditious rabble? None. And who died in this attack on our capital? An unarmed protestor, a woman shot in the throat by an as yet unidentified law enforcement. She died at the scene. And who caused this attack? President Trump at a speech he was giving about 1/2 mile away from the congress. He lead the charge... metaphorically. Sounds like an airtight case you got there Dick Tracey!

Several comments defending it by saying Antifa and BLM has done bad things too. Goes to show how close the left and right really are... people are people. If you're extreme, you're all the same. Right really stepped in it by going too far at the Capitol.

The deflection of “but antifa...” is astounding. That doesn’t make the capitol rioters less wrong, it just makes them both wrong. You’re allowed to be against both of them. Just because one of them is getting properly punished does not mean they were not both wrong, and it does not mean fallacies are good or valid arguments

Only defense MAGA ever offers is “but the other guy”. This is how it ends for this hillbilly cult of personality.

Nobody here knows everyone who was there. I don't know what a conviction requires for sedition, so I can't comment there, but I can say that some of those people were not there because they thought they wanted to ensure a valid election happened. Some openly stated they were there to reverse there election whether it was valid or not.

Do it. Do it and see what happens. Persecute political prisoners in the US, go ahead. I just hope you're living in a bomb shelter because people will most likely show you what they think if you keep it up.

I think they call that freedom of speech. Whether we agree with it or not.

Wow. America has really gone down the toilet.. So, when Antofagasta sets up their own “autonomous zones” threatens businesses and private citizens, burns down private buildings, etc.... it’s just freedom of speech. But the moment such groups express their “free speech” on congress... its sedition, treason, etc.... Why do I see a double standard here?
