In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Brandenberg v Ohio, found that the government can punish inflammatory speech when it is “directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action and is likely to incite or produce such action.

Politico: The world watched in horror Wednesday as a violent insurrectionist mob attacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to obstruct the democratic process of certifying the vote for president. Five Americans died in the attack, including Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.

If the federal investigation into the deaths determines that those responsible were incited to violence at the Save America rally that occurred just hours before, President Donald Trump could face criminal charges, even if he didn’t storm the Capitol himself.

The federal criminal code (18 USC 373) makes it a crime to solicit, command, induce or “endeavor to persuade” another person to commit a felony that includes the threat or use of physical force. Simply put, it is a crime to persuade another person, or a mob of several thousand, to commit a violent felony.

From the early results of the investigation, we know that several insurrectionists already have been charged with felonies. However, the crime posing the biggest problem for the president could be having solicited the mob into a seditious conspiracy.

The federal criminal code makes it a crime for “two or more persons … to oppose by force the authority [of the United States] or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States” (18 USC 2384). That felony, including the use of force, clearly was committed by the mob after being encouraged by the president.  read more…

  1. Correction : Not “watched in glie (or gule) — but “watched WITH GLEE”. Engish is somewhat difficult for those of us grown up with only West Norwegian, Yiddish, Karelian and Chinese — and English as a seventh lanuage not too much to be admired.

  2. “The world watched in horror Wednesday as a violent insurrectionist mob attacked the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to obstruct the democratic process of certifying the vote for president.”
    The conventional takeaway in the minds of most people will be that “mob” was trying to keep/install Trump as dictator, not that they were trying to stop Biden from being “certified.” And that is all the operation was intended to do; to shatter the illusion that “it could never happen here!”

    • I cannot agree with Your stetement thet “THe World watchedin horror”. I woud think most of the non-Northatlantic World watched thiese happenings with glle, Elvin Laton. Otherwise, I do agree with Your final two scentences.
