News - Prosecution of Jan 6 rioters shifts to more seriousOver 300 witnesses have willingly testified before the special Jan 6 committee investigating the Capitol Riot.
With much of the less severe cases already prosecuted, there is now a upshift to the prosecution of more severe cases. For instance, 11 members of the right wing terrorists group, 'Oathkeepers' have been indicted and charged with conspiracy and sedition. A guilty finding will carry up to a 20 year prison sentence.
In addition the Jan 6 committee is now also focused on better confining the spread of lies on social media leading to to conspiracy and sedition.
Again with over 300 witnesses willingly testifying to the committee, they already have a lot of evidence, and a good understanding of most that went on. So, what will likely follow this phase will be the prosecution of those who conducted the most violence, and finally those who planned and inspired the attempt to overthrow the lawful transfer of presidential power with lies.
Yeah, for those who have been evading justice, the time left in their stall is closing in on them, including those, who have refused to testify, as part of a cover up.
