Dismantling the Jan. 6 narrative

Legal Expert: Supreme Court Jan. 6 Ruling Downgraded ‘Insurrection’ to Mere Trespassing

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley opined at the Hillsaying that Friday’s Supreme Court decision holding that the most severe law cited in January 6 prosecutions does not apply to riots or protests effectively means that the oft-repeated accusations of “insurrection” have been downgraded to mere trespassing.

As Breitbart News reported this past Friday, the Supreme Court decided in Fischer vs. U.S. that the “Department of Justice had taken too broad a view of [18 U.S.C.] 1512(c)(2), a law that prohibits destruction of evidence but was not intended for protests.”
