Ali provides insight on insurrection criminal cases

January 13, 2022 ABC News

A leader of the Oath Keepers militia group has been arrested in connection with the January 6 insurrection. Javed Ali, associate professor of practice, commented on the charges.

"The charges against Stewart Rhodes send a strong message about the criminal conspiracy he was engaged in," he said. "While there is no crime of domestic terrorism under U.S. law, the seditious conspiracy charge that Rhodes and others will now face is one of dozens of crimes under the terrorism enhancement statute, which could boost the amount of years he and other defendants face if these cases go to trial and the U.S. government wins."
