Sedition charges for Capitol rioters are coming. Let me count the reasons why.

Sedition marks offenders as the antithesis of what it means to be American — which is why it’s perfect for the Capitol riot cases.

On Sunday, CBS aired an interview with Michael Sherwin, who formerly served as head of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and led initial prosecution efforts against those charged with involvement in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Sherwin, who provided more insight into prosecutive strategy than we had previously heard, responded as follows when asked whether he anticipated sedition charges against some of the Capitol riot suspects: “I believe the facts do support those charges. And I think that, as we go forward, more facts will support that.”
