Does Sedition or Treason Apply to Trump, Bannon and Members of Congress Behind the Planning of January 6?
We will begin with evidence emerging about the planning of the January 6 insurrection involving Trump, Bannon, Giuliani, Eastman, Meadows, Scavino and Patel and the organizers of the rally in coordination with a number of pro-Trump members of Congress; Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks, Madison Cawthorn, Andy Biggs and Louis Gohmert. Joining us to assess the evidence so far and hints of more to come and discuss whether treason or sedition applies to the activities of these participants is Carlton Larson, Professor of Constitutional Law and Legal History at the University of California, Davis. One of the nation’s leading authorities on the law of treason, he is the author of On Treason: A Citizen’s Guide to the Law and The Trials of Allegiance: Treason, Juries, and the American Revolution and we look into the dozens of planning meetings that took place between the rally organizers and members of Congress and the activities of Bannon’s War Room in the Willard Hotel in communication on January 5 with Trump in the White House who along with John Eastman, was pressuring the Vice President to refuse to certify Biden’s electoral victory.
