Hundreds of Capitol Stormers wrongly accused of ‘prohibition’, US Supreme Court rules

Hundreds of Capitol Stormers wrongly accused of ‘prohibition’, US Supreme Court rules

The court’s vote against “restrictive” sentences could hurt federal prosecutors’ cases against the Capitol’s storms. Not all those who attacked the Capitol intended to destroy official documents.

However, according to the Public Prosecution Service, the verdict does not mean that all stormtroopers will be freed suddenly. Almost all Americans indicted have other felonies and misdemeanors on their record. Joseph Fisher, who filed the lawsuit, faces six charges, including “disorderly conduct in the Capitol” and “use of force against a federal officer.” Still, about 25 people were able to be released early because their only crime was prohibition.

Donald Trump has also been accused of obstructing an investigation into his role in the Capitol storm. However, the special prosecutor in the case, Jack Smith, has indicated that the court’s ruling will have little impact on his case. Trump allegedly tampered with evidence of the ballots Vice President Mike Pence was supposed to count. So the ‘obstruction’ charge is still valid in the former president’s case, say lawyers.
