Overall, the bar for proving sedition isn’t as high as it is for the related charge of treason. Still, sedition charges have been rare.

  • The AP added that sedition charges are “rare,” and that where they have been leveled, cases became complex. The last time the United States government accused individuals of sedition was in 2010, but a judge “ordered acquittals” on those charges in 2012 because prosecutors’ evidence, manifestos and “diatribes” about the government were First Amendment protected speech.
  • Among the last successful convictions for seditious conspiracy stemmed from another, now largely forgotten storming of the Capitol in 1954 when four Puerto Rican nationalists opened fire on the House floor, wounding five representatives.
