Following the dubious testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, a prominent attorney asserted that her allegations were the “smoking gun” connecting former President Donald Trump to “seditious conspiracy charges.”
That attorney who made the controversial statement is Solomon Wisenberg, who was the former deputy independent counsel in Ken Starr’s investigation that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
“This is the smoking gun,” Wisenberg told New York Times reporter Peter Baker.
He added that “there isn’t any question this establishes a prima facie case for his [Trump’s] criminal culpability on seditious conspiracy charges.”
Did Trump commit a crime? "This is the smoking gun," Sol Wisenberg, a former deputy to Ken Starr, tells me about today's hearing. "There isn’t any question this establishes a prima facie case for his criminal culpability on seditious conspiracy charges."

Wisenberg wasn’t the only one to make the statement. In fact, leftists and legal analysts came out of the woodwork over the testimony, once again proclaiming that it was the end of Trump.
Just Security editor Asha Rangappa tweeted, “Just so you know Hutchinson is implicating Trump and Meadows in a seditious conspiracy.”

And just like that, “seditious conspiracy” started trending on Twitter Tuesday during the surprise hearing sprung by the January 6 inquisition. Lots of individuals were searching Google to find out exactly what the term meant.
According to Google, “Seditious conspiracy is a crime in various jurisdictions of conspiring against the authority or legitimacy of the state.” So far, there is no definitive proof that Trump is guilty of that in the least, and claims by attorneys, the media, or bitter leftists to the contrary appear to be nothing more than hearsay.

In fact, neither Wisenberg nor Rangappa detailed exactly what facet of Hutchinson’s testimony proves “seditious conspiracy” against Trump or former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Hutchinson’s testimony contends that both Trump and Meadows were aware of the danger of their actions on Jan. 6 in an alleged attempt to stop the transition of power to Biden. However, a number of her claims are now being contested as not being true.
The leftist media enthusiastically followed suit.
“Bottom line, today’s hearing had the worst, strongest legal evidence specifically against Donald Trump thus far,” declared MSNBC anchor and chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.

"[Trump] was trying to put them in danger," @Arimelber says of Secret Service. "He went for…the throat of an agent, who would risk his own life for Trump, over who was going to bring guns to the Capitol. And that's why it's so bad, legally, for criminal culpability for Trump" pic.twitter.com/rPuD3lsrEd

Not to be outdone, deep-state lackeys also jumped on board.
National security attorney and former top DOJ official David Laufman commented, “Grounds for @TheJusticeDept elevating Trump’s status to target of investigation into seditious conspiracy getting stronger today with credible testimony about his foreknowledge of violence and overt acts to join in.”
And none of the backstabbings would be complete without former Trump White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney giving his own two cents worth.
A stunning 2 hours:
1)Trump knew the protesters had guns
2)He assaulted his own security team
3)There may be a line from ProudBoys to the WH
4)Top aides asked for pardons
5)The commission thinks they have evidence of witness tampering.
That is a very, very bad day for Trump.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who outwardly despises Trump, used the term earlier in the hearings saying that the committee will expose “plots to commit seditious conspiracy on January 6th.”
“The charge of ‘seditious conspiracy’ requires prosecutors to prove that at least two people conspired to use force to overthrow the government, oppose its authority or subvert the execution of a U.S. law,” author Greg Sargent wrote in The Washington Post earlier in June. “Such charges have been brought against some of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers” he noted.
