Four leaders of the Proud Boys militia were found guilty of seditious conspiracy today. The verdicts could see the traitors sentenced up to 20 years in prison. One additional member, who is described as a “recruit” was not found guilty of the sedition charge but was found guilty of some lesser charges that still will probably carry some jail time.

If people think that this is the end of the line for such charges, they might want to reconsider that notion.

Civil rights attorney Andrew Laufer said that this is a “huge verdict,” adding,  “Those higher up on the conspiracy who haven’t been formally charged yet must be quaking in their boots.”

Former Department of Defense special counsel was more specific.

“The Report presents extraordinary evidence and analysis of a preplanned operation by the Proud Boys that appears to have worked hand-in-hand with the closely held plan that Trump would direct the crowd to march on the Capitol,” he wrote for Just Security In Dec. 2022.

He also pointed out “possible coordination with Trump allies like Alex Jones,” who promoted the “rally.”

“We have only begun to resist the globalists. We have only begun our fight against their tyranny. They have tried to steal this election in front of everyone,” Jones told a group at Freedom Plaza in Washington just one day before the attack. “I don’t know how this is all going to end, but if they want to fight, they better believe they’ve got one.”

A USA Today article and others have suggested that Special Counsel Jack Smith may be considering seditious conspiracy charges against the twice impeached former president. They also weigh some other factors that might alleviate Trump from such charges.

Regardless of whether or not Trump or Jones or anyone else has specific seditious conspiracy charges brought against them, much of the country has walked away from Trump’s MAGA bandwagon since January 6th, 2021. Recent polling has Trump’s favorability rating has plummeted to around 25 percent. Furthermore, a majority of Americans believe that even in the New York “hush money” case, Trump did something illegal and approve of him being charged.

That case is considered to be the smallest of what could be much more serious charges that could be brought forth in Georgia, in addition to what Jack Smith might charge him with in the stolen document scandal and the January 6th insurrection.
