#1 The Times of Israel gives us Ay Pee’s view through a different filter:

Legal risks in sedition conspiracy charge for ‘Oath Keepers’ who stormed Capitol

Experts say the rarely used charge is hard to prove, but the case is strong; far-right militia accused of preparing to deliver arms to members on January 6, if need arose.

#2 Note that Andy McCarthy has constantly defended the professionalism, ethics, and integrity of the DOJ and FBI. 'Nuff said.

#3 Andy Mac shredded his credibility years ago when he tried to defend the FB-eye while exposing the Russia Hoax.

He's another D.C. area conservative cuck who's terrified that his livelihood and his family will be targeted if he's seen to be in the Orange Man's camp.

#4 an indictment is not a report. It is not about what Attorney General Merrick Garland Ferret or you or I know is an objective fact.

What do you mean 'we,' Paleface?
Facts are whatever Da Ferret deems truth. Re-education camp for this running dog!

#5 It appears to me the Oath Keepers were prepared to deliver weapons to protestors if the feds opened fire on the protestors. This is consistent with the Oath Keepers' mission and, IMHO, the moral thing to do.

As that never happened -- excepting the cold blooded murder of Ashli Babbit -- the Oath Keepers were just observers, ensuring the feds didn't violate THEIR oaths en masse.

#6 Ahhh, but if their defense is "Trump made me do it", then the Dem Congress will try to ban Trump forever. So I like #5 defense.

#7 Increasingly clear they plan to use the process as the punishment and the example to intimidate others. The have weaponised our federal justice system to incite fear in citizens exercising their constitutional rights.
