Shideler and McCarthy discussed why Attorney General Bill Barr is right to suggest U.S. Attorneys consider using “seditious conspiracy” charges, why Antifa meets the standard as an “organization” for legal purposes, Responding to local officials refusal to prosecute rioters, Kyle Rittenhouse, where or not Antifa and BLM should be designated terrorist organizations, and the role of the insurrection act.
