The law quoted at the end of this post seems to fit. If they can be charged with treason, so much the better. I don't know why the authorities weren't better prepared. It isn't like they didn't know Der Führer, as well as his brownshirts, were spoiling for trouble.

I am disgusted by the R's who, suddenly, after four years of enabling, assisting, and acquiescing to a malignant narcissist, suddenly are shocked - shocked! at what this had led to.

BTW, although Faux News stoutly declared the activity of the brownshirts "peaceful," it seems the DC police have declared it a riot. See this post.

Many will argue that this is no different than the BLM protests. I would argue that the BLM protests are based upon racism (which has a lot of factual support) while these are based upon misinformation and fear of things that have not happened.

This rioting was aimed at impeding the functioning of government - specifically, preventing Congress from carrying out its official function of counting the electoral votes in a presidential election. That's where sedition, and possibly treason charges come in.

It is fortunate indeed that floor staff got the boxes of electoral votes certificates out of the chambers. The mob would surely have destroyed them.

Plus, of course, the riot was an attack on the US Capitol.

Is the President, as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice? I don't know. I sort of doubt it. But just in case (my emphasis)...

Quote:
U.S. Code Title 10.
ARMED FORCES
Subtitle A. General Military Law
Part II. PERSONNEL
Chapter 47. UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE
Subchapter X. PUNITIVE ARTICLES
Section 894.
Art. 94. Mutiny or sedition

10 U.S. Code § 894 - Art. 94. Mutiny or sedition

(a) Any person subject to this chapter who—
(1) with intent to usurp or override lawful military authority, refuses, in concert with any other person, to obey orders or otherwise do his duty or creates any violence or disturbance is guilty of mutiny;

(2) with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of lawful civil authority, creates, in concert with any other person, revolt, violence, or other disturbance against that authority is guilty of sedition;

(3) fails to do his utmost to prevent and suppress a mutiny or sedition being committed in his presence, or fails to take all reasonable means to inform his superior commissioned officer or commanding officer of a mutiny or sedition which he knows or has reason to believe is taking place, is guilty of a failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition.
(b) A person who is found guilty of attempted mutiny, mutiny, sedition, or failure to suppress or report a mutiny or sedition shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct.

Deja vu. I guess Americans found their own iliescu...
Hopefully for you and for your democracy, your mad smiling clown will not manage to avoid the most deserved path, like our did, and he'll be sent where his place is: to the jail.

As of right now, Biden only has 244 votes counted by Congress, which is short of the 270 to win.

Since it's currently over an hour past midnight on the U.S. east coast, I wonder whether this is the first time since 1877 that the president-elect hasn't been officially confirmed by Congress on January 6:
