The investigation into the January 6 attack on the US Capitol will most likely result in sedition charges against some of the suspects, the federal prosecutor leading the investigation said in a new interview.

“I believe the facts do support those charges.

And I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that,” the prosecutor, Michael Sherwin, said during an interview with “60 Minutes” that aired Sunday.

Under US law, sedition is a crime and is defined as conspiring to overthrow the US government or to “prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States” by force.

Historically, sedition charges are rare.

In the interview, Sherwin also said investigators were still looking into whether President Donald Trump was criminally responsible for the riot.

“It’s unequivocal that Trump was the magnet that brought the people to DC on the sixth,” Sherwin said.

“Now the question is, is he criminally culpable for everything that happened during the siege, during the breach?”

The investigation has resulted in more than 400 criminal cases so far, many of which involve significant federal felony charges.

More than 100 people have been charged with assaulting federal and local law-enforcement officers.

Sherwin said about 10% of the cases were “more complex conspiracy cases” in which prosecutors have evidence that right-wing armed groups came to the Capitol with a plan.

Investigators are working to uncover more details about what specifically those plans were.

Federal investigator said evidence will likely allow government to file sedition charges in the January 6 breach

.

The federal investigator said evidence will likely allow the government to file sedition charges in the January 6 breach.

Federal investigators have found evidence that would likely allow the United States government to file sedition charges against some of those involved in the deadly January 6 breach on the US Capitol, a Justice Department official has said.

Hundreds of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol in a failed bid to stop Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential election victory, leaving five dead and sending lawmakers fleeing.

“I believe the facts do support those charges,” acting US Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin, who had been leading the department’s inquiry into the violence, said in an interview on the CBS 60 Minutes programme, which aired on Sunday.

“I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that,” he said.

To date, the Justice Department has filed cases against about 400 suspects involved in the assault, but none have yet been accused of sedition, the crime of opposing the authority of the US government through force.

Historically, the department has rarely brought sedition charges against defendants.

However, Sherwin has maintained a willingness to pursue the charges since announcing on January 12 the creation of a special task force to investigate the breach.

So far, most arrested in connection with the riot have been charged with trespassing or assaulting officers, with a smaller number charged with conspiracy to obstruct Congress.

Two men charged with assaulting officer Brian Sicknick, who was sprayed with some kind of chemical agent during the incident and later died after scuffling with rioters, could also face murder charges “if evidence directly relates that chemical to his death”, Sherwin said.

Sherwin, who stepped down from his role leading the investigation on Friday, reiterated that the department is looking into the conduct of former President Trump, who claimed for weeks that the election had been “rigged” and “stolen” and urged his supporters to overturn the results.

Trump had also encouraged supporters to attend the January 6 rally and march on the Capitol as legislators met.

He was subsequently impeached by the US House of Representatives on allegations his conduct constituted “incitement of insurrection”.

He was later acquitted in a US Senate trial, despite a history-making seven Republicans breaking from party ranks to support his conviction.

“It’s unequivocal that Trump was the magnet that brought the people to DC on the 6th,” Sherwin said.

“Now the question is, is he criminally culpable for everything that happened during the siege, during the breach?”

“We have people looking at everything,” he added.

Men from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, allegedly used powerful chemical spray during the January 6 deadly Capitol riot.

Security fence around US Capitol is the cause of ire among some legislators, who say barrier reminds them of ‘warzone’.

Federal indictment presents new evidence of how federal officials believe group members planned January 6 riot.
