The list of things ex-President Donald Trump could and should be charged with, both criminally and civilly, is long and ever-growing with each passing moment. And now one attorney has potentially just added yet another to that list — and this one’s a doozy.
Writing for The Crime Report, Boston defense lawyer James Doyle has perfectly outlined his clear-cut case for charging the one-term, twice-impeached ex-president with seditious conspiracy in connection to Donald Trump’s relentless, unhinged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election that Joe Biden rightfully and fairly won.
“Watching a riot on television is not a crime. But the hours spent passively savoring that particular riot do provide compelling circumstantial evidence of Trump’s state of mind — of his goals and intentions — as he maneuvered throughout the period between Election Day and the riot to hold power,” Doyle penned. “From Trump’s inaction we can infer — the inference is inescapable — that he meant to see the certification of the electoral vote delayed and, if possible, prevented. After that, something might break his way. He might hold onto power.”
Doyle argues in his fiery piece that all of Trump’s above actions do, in fact, meet the federal criteria for the crime of seditious conspiracy. Such a charge requires that “two or more persons… conspire… by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States.” For Trump to potentially be charged with such a crime, it’s not required that he even put his heinous plan in action with the people who stand loyal with him, just that he and his inner circle of sycophants made a plan and agreed to a series of actions that led to the infamous riot taking place.

“For once, his conduct should be weighed by citizens, not politicians, and in a forum where tested proof, not wild allegation and fantasy, is required. That’s how the rule of law is mobilized and expressed,” Doyle concluded in his piece, resting his case. “You don’t have to bring every charge you could bring against Trump, or charge every co-conspirator you could charge, to let the jurors speak on one serious federal crime. Start tomorrow.”
Allow me to reiterate Doyle’s most important words — START TOMORROW.
