A jury in federal court in Washington convicted Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the far-right militia, and one of his subordinates for a plot to keep Donald Trump in power.

The panel of seven men and five women deliberated for three days before finding Rhodes and a co-defendant guilty of conspiring to oppose by force the lawful transition of presidential power. Rhodes and all four co-defendants on trial were also convicted of obstructing Congress as it met to confirm the results of the 2020 election. Both offenses are punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

This means that the riot on January 6th was not merely misguided "tourists" or just "patriots" exercising their First Amendment rights. These convictions should make J6 enablers and instigators including Donald Trump very nervous.

    Define J6 enabler.

    It seems to me that the real story here is that prosecutors found no link between these maniacs and OrangeMan.

    Connecting Trump to January 6th riot was not the job or goal of these particular prosecutors. That's will be the responsibility of others.

    Enabling and instigating would include tweeting an invitation that "it will be wild" to his followers. It also could include giving a "very peaceful speech" on January 6th in which he promised to join the march to Capitol. It may also include the dereliction of duty of inaction.

    You probably are aware of how organized crime cases proceed. They start with the small fry and work their way up to the big fish.

    Washington ó A federal judge in Washington rejected former President Donald Trump's claim of absolute immunity in a civil lawsuit involving his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

    The opinion issued Monday from U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan stemmed from a suit filed by the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization, NAACP and three Michigan voters, who together accused the former president and the Republican National Committee (RNC) of violating federal voting rights and civil rights law by conspiring to disenfranchise voters and keep Trump in office despite his electoral loss.

    I'm seeing TDS and Good German-ism here, Curt. If the prosecutors could get these maniacs to snitch on Trump, they would have in a heartbeat. Clearly, the case ain't there.

    And, organized crime? Trump is despicable but I think that we'll find that it's the Bidens who have operated a Crime Family.

    So you must think that the half dozen or so cases in which Trump's attorneys are defending him in various investigations and prosecutions are all part of a conspiracy. Just as Trump told you.

    I suppose you think that it's another a conspiracy that Joe Biden is not being investigated or prosecuted.

    First, I didn't keep up with that trial, it doesn't mean anything to me. I'm "assuming" everything was legal, and all that. I'm really not sure about "sedition" but whatever. If the jury found that to be true, I'm okay with that.

    I do agree with Lead. If they could have gotten this guy to (legally) hand up Trump, they would have given him a complete pass. I think the guy told them to pissoff, so they rammed him with everything they had.

    If even the J6 kangaroo court could find ANY evidence Trump could be impeached. They would have passed that through quicker than a taco bell burrito (with "hot sauce"). The dims did the same thing to Palin. Threw thousands of lawsuits at her so she had to pay. So I'm considering the court cases as nothing but political bullsht.

    Welcome to politics curt.

    I have no idea what youíre talking about when you say the Democrats threw thousands of lawsuits at Sarah Palin. The only lawsuit involving her that I know about is the lawsuit she filed against the New York Times for defamation which the judge dismissed.

    Curt,

    pb thinks Trump is despicable. As far as Joe is concerned, the House GOPs have been clear. The Biden laptop investigation is not about Hunter and his coked out stripper videos. They will be about the President, and the FBI.

    The actual real world truth is that "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" is already under investigation. Hearings will follow soon.

    "I have no idea what youíre talking about when you say the Democrats threw thousands of lawsuits at Sarah Palin."
    After she was voted in as governor, she was hit with hundreds of frivolous lawsuits. Within a year, she felt it was better if she left the governorship in order for Alaskans to have a full time governor. The day after that, in pretty much unison, the lawsuits were dropped.
