REPORT: Attorney General Bill Barr Told Federal Prosecutors to Charge Violent Rioters with Sedition

US Attorney General Bill Barr told federal prosecutors to charge violent rioters with sedition, according to report by The Wall Street Journal.

WSJ reported Bill Barr made these statements during a conference call last week with federal prosecutors.

According to the WSJ, which cited “people familiar” with the conference call, Barr “encouraged the prosecutors to seek a number federal charges, including under a rarely used sedition law, even when state charges could apply.”

According to Law and Crime, the seditious conspiracy statute, 18 U.S. Code § 2384, is a means of punishing those who conspire to violently overthrow or who oppose by force the authority the U.S. government or who by force conspire to seize federal property:

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

I'd normally call this harsh, but the main instigators have ran their mouth and done the deed, repeatedly, with coordination and conspiracy.

They swaggered themselves right into it like total idiots, I guess thinking nothing would ever come of it.

Not sure if the charges will be made to stick and proven in court (consider the makeup of the jury that will hear them), but at least Mr. Barr is trying on this.

It was never anything other than "sedition" and insurrection.
They should ALL be charged as such.
