Get back to us after you prosecute people in Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Baltimore, New York and a few other locations.

Yes it is. Especially when that mob broke into the Capitol and tried to stop a Constitutionally mandated activity to keep a despot in office.

No, treason has been decided to mean giving aid to an enemy. An insurrection doesn't fall in that catagory. For one thing a formal state of war has ro exist for treason to be possible.

FIRST OF ALL, there is EVERY DOUBT that Trump incited anyone to treason. If I bitch to someone that I'm fed up with paying taxes then they are inspired by me and they bomb the IRS, am I responsible?

People with a chip on their shoulder looking for an excuse used Trump's reiteration of all the examples of election fraud to attack the capitol and PLANNED IT well in advance. But what if the evidence is true and the Democrats committed wide scale coordinated cheating? THAT is illegal, THAT is election fraud, THAT is usurping the federal government to defraud the People of a lawful election therefore is CRIMINAL, and people, unable to get redress LEGALLY as they tried through the courts, BLOCKED by John Roberts, can indeed be considered freedom fighters and patriots merely fighting as the Constitution dictates to protect from all enemies foreign and domestic to RESTORE the law and order, not break it.

How you look at it depends on whether you, like the Carter-Baker Commission, feel that our election system is broken and deeply fraught with corruption and DON'T believe in MIRACLES (Biden), or if you just hated Trump and wanted him out and don't care how.

How did President Trump incite a "insurrection"
Dems are just digging their whole deeper.
Their credibility is zero.

So your thought is that the guys in riot helmets, flak jackets and military fatigues were going to riot anyway and Trump just happened to be giving a speech...they stopped and listened and then went on about their rioting?

Trump incited a protest about an unconstitutional election grab. The party that incites riots and attacks against the government is the dems. If you don't think that unlawful crap at the capital was planned and set up by anti-Trumpers, you are gullible. Of course, no real investigation will take place and the press doesn't do their job anymore. Here are examples of seditious dems inciting riots and attacks against the government.

Can you back that up with examples of you making the same call for treason against those other riots, riots which often attacked federal buildings, and agents, while the police were ordered to stand down by dem officials so that the mob would be free to attack?
