Federal Prosecutor May Have Compromised Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Conspiracy Case with 60 Minutes Interview
Federal prosecutor Michael Sherwin may have compromised the conspiracy case he has been preparing against Jan. 6 demonstrators in the U.S. Capitol by appearing on CBS News’ 60 Minutes on Sunday night.
Sherwin boasted on 60 Minutes about how he was charging Trump supporters as quickly as humanly possible regardless of the evidence in order to make a “shock and awe” display to quash their 1st Amendment rights.
Judge Amit Mehta is incredibly unhappy with Sherwin’s activity, which he believes are egregious and highly unprofessional. Mehta stated he will not hesitate to slap a gag order on Sherwin in the future if such breaches continue. Sherwin has reportedly been referred to the Office of Professional Responsibility for potential disciplinary action.
Buzzfeed reporter Zoe Tillman reported on what happened during the day’s court proceedings:
Big League Politics has reported about Judge Mehta pushing back against this attempted railroading of constitutional patriots by deep state officials who are set on crushing the rights of pro-Trump dissidents:
“A federal judge has ordered the release of a constitutional rights activist accused by prosecutors of masterminding a conspiracy to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Thomas Caldwell, 65, is being placed in home confinement after Judge Amit Mehta rejected arguments from prosecutors that Caldwell was some sort of terror mastermind who posed a major flight risk. Mehta noted that Caldwell never actually entered the Capitol building himself when deciding to release him from jail.
“There is an absence of direct evidence, at least, of planning by Caldwell to enter the Capitol building,” Mehta said during a Friday afternoon hearing over videoconference. “Ultimately, he did not enter the building. … Others did actually carry out the plan.”
The Justice Department is having a difficult time making their case with actual evidence showing that there was a coordinated plot among Trump supporters beforehand to overtake the Capitol. This case is crucial for providing the basis to keep the Capitol locked down and using the war on terror to target Christian patriots.
“Those factors still exist for them,” said assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Rakoczy during the proceeding, “that the current political order is something that is problematic and should not be followed.”
The feds under President Joe Biden want to make it so that every individual who dissents to illicit government activity using their 1st Amendment rights is treated as a terrorist threat.”
The deep state may be overreaching in their attempt to paint Jan. 6 as a seditious conspiracy when it was rather obviously a spontaneous mostly-peaceful protest against entrenched political corruption in the federal swamp.
