The FBI isn’t having a whole lot of luck getting their bogus charges to stick. They want the DOJ to prosecute alleged January 6 “insurrectionists” for “treason” or “sedition” and it’s not happening. The Deep State keeps bumping up against a wall they thought they tore down. That pesky Constitution won’t go away even though it’s outdated and been debunked. What seems like treason to liberals turns out to be protected free speech.
Treason charges nowhere in sight
Liberal Democrats are going frantic that nobody is facing any charges of treason or sedition for the pre-planned, false-flag, barbarian invasion of the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6. Progressives are convinced that the Capitol riots were “an armed ‘insurrection’ against the United States government.” The only problem is nobody has been accused of that. Meanwhile conservatives have been saying for over a year that liberals were the ones plotting “insurrection.”
The palace already ruled the liberals were exercising Constitutionally protected free speech, while rioting in the streets, so now they’re forced to say the same about the barbarians foolish enough to be coaxed by “QAnon” into the Capitol Building on that fateful day. That’s called a “Mexican standoff.”
More than 500 people were arrested in relation to the barbarian invasion. They’ve been formally charged with a whole slew of lesser crimes but not a single count of “treason” or “sedition” has been filed. Treason doesn’t really apply because the country is not officially at war with anyone.
Sedition or something related is definitely an option, if the conditions really do apply. So far, the insurrection is nothing more than Democrat wishful thinking. The Associated Press explains that the accused received an “increasing number of lesser charges,” which they speculate is “perhaps designed to elicit guilty pleas or plea deals.”
One particular rioter, Thomas Caldwell, was singled out as a prospective test case for sedition or insurrection charges. The accusations against him “certainly seem to fit the charge of sedition as it’s generally understood,” the AP writes. They want him to be charged with “inciting revolt against the government.”
The outlet notes “the possibility of charging him and others was widely discussed after thousands of pro-Trump supporters assaulted scores of police officers, defaced the U.S. Capitol, and hunted for lawmakers to stop the certification.” Just because some “called their actions treasonous” doesn’t mean it was.
Liberals are disappointed
The Associated Press shows how disappointed beltway liberals are over the lack of meaningful persecution of deplorable Trump supporters. To date, they write, “neither Caldwell nor any of the other more than 500 defendants accused in the attack has been indicted for sedition or for the gravest of crimes a citizen can face, treason. And as an increasing number of lesser charges are filed and defendants plead guilty, those accusations may never be formally levied.”
Liberals turn purple whenever they have to acknowledge that the First Amendment allows people to say what’s on their mind, even if it’s against the ruling powers.
Even the AP is forced to admit that sedition accusations are “rare.” When they have been filed, the “cases became complex.” Complex in the sense that they fell apart under the stress of examination.
A handful of people were accused of sedition in 2010, but a judge “‘ordered acquittals’ on those charges in 2012 because prosecutors’ evidence — manifestos and “diatribes” about the government — were First Amendment protected speech.”
Biden’s administration is really gumming up the works for liberals and they are forced to grudgingly admit it. Donald Trump’s administration “leveled charges of ‘assaulting federal officers, civil disorder, and failing to obey’ against rioters who took to the streets of Portland, Oregon, last summer.” Biden’s prosecutors dropped them like a hot potato, “likely providing a standard for prosecutors.”
So far, most rioters are charged with “entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds,” “disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds,” “engaging in physical violence in a restricted building or grounds,” “disorderly conduct in a Capitol building,” and “assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers.” Out of 560 arrests there have been 13 minor convictions.
