MARK LEVIN (HOST): We have this series of indictments now brought by the Department of Justice charges against the Oath Keepers, including the individual who heads the Oath Keepers and founded the Oath Keepers.
DOJ charges Oath Keepers with "seditious conspiracy." As our friend Mark Tapscott writes over at instapundit dot com, "Interestingly, the Department of Justice announcement describes the charges with reference to the statute’s inclusion of efforts to oppose or delay execution of a law, not its reference 'to conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them'.”
I'm just pointing out and he's pointing out the part of the statute they're using again is the statutes inclusion of efforts to oppose or delay the execution of the law, not to conspire to overthrow, put down or to destroy by force the government of the United States or levy war against them.
So, it's still not an insurrection, just so you understand.
"Mark, you're so technical" -- no, I'm telling you the truth. But as Tapscott points out, "But watch the mainstream media and Schumer/Pelosi crowd will frame it rhetorically as if the defendants are being charged with conspiracy to overthrow the government."
Nobody's been charged yet with the conspiracy to overthrow the government. If there was such a charge, the entire Democrat Party would have a problem. We'd have to put a crime tape around the Congress and the DNC, not to dimension the media. So, I wanted to point that out as well.
