Robin Stein, Haley Willis, Danielle Miller, and Michael S. Schmidt report ‘We’ve Lost the Line!’: Radio Traffic Reveals Police Under Siege at Capitol (‘The Times obtained District of Columbia police radio communications and synchronized them with footage from the scene to show in real time how officers tried and failed to stop the attack on the U.S. Capitol’):
Katie Benner reports Evidence in Capitol Attack Most Likely Supports Sedition Charges, Prosecutor Says:
Evidence the government obtained in the investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol most likely meets the bar necessary to charge some of the suspects with sedition, Michael R. Sherwin, the federal prosecutor who had been leading the Justice Department’s inquiry, said in an interview that aired on Sunday.
The department has rarely brought charges of sedition, the crime of conspiring to overthrow the government.
But in an interview with “60 Minutes,” Mr. Sherwin said prosecutors had evidence that most likely proved such a charge.
“I personally believe the evidence is trending toward that, and probably meets those elements,” Mr. Sherwin said. “I believe the facts do support those charges. And I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that.”
The statute on seditious conspiracy also says that people who conspire to “oppose by force the authority” of the government or use force “to prevent, hinder or delay the execution of any law of the United States” can be charged with sedition.
A heavily armed Waukesha County man and QAnon believer who recently traveled to Washington, D.C., and promised violence there was twice taken into custody and released before being arrested Friday on federal charges.
Prosecutors say Ian Alan Olson, 31, of Nashotah drove a car spray-painted with QAnon slogans to the Wisconsin Army Reserve Center in Pewaukee on March 15 and shouted, “This is for America,” before he fired paintball rounds at two reservists nearby.
He also told intake staff at the Waukesha County Jail that he would “cause mass casualty” if he were released, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court.
“I am ready for this. How many people need to die for a message to get across,” he said, according to the complaint.
