To be honest I don't think Trump will see the inside of a prison.

He will not for federal crimes. But for STATE crimes? SDNY is salivating, waiting for 12:01 p.m. 20 January where he becomes citizen 45. And remember what put Al Capone in an orange jumpsuit? Same thing applies here.

The Buffalo Horns guy (aka Jacob Chansley, aka Jake Angeli, aka the Odin of A$$holes) is currently in a detention facility after attempting to overthrow the legitimate government of the United States.

He may or may not end up in prison but what we do know is that Mr. trump knows that he will be fighting legal assaults for the rest of his life starting January 20. Clearly the chance that he could go

I don't know what the difference means.

Are federal crimes things he did as president and state crimes things he did as private business man? 

 

If so yeah its likely that hunting season opens Jan 20 for state crimes, but putting an x president into jail is not going to be easy.

Hopefully there are videos for the police to review of the thousands of right wing traitors and haters of Americas freedoms and liberties like the right to claim what gender you are and the right to report offensive writing to Facebook and twitter to rid these bad fascists from the internet and society.  The police should review and identify all people who took part in these capitol riots and seditious and begin the process of taking them off of the street and put in jails or camps until they can be dealt with severely.  They are all a danger to Americas democracy.

Rest assured, thousands of hours of videos are being carefully reviewed and the bad guys will be charged.

The FBI is doing what you suggest.  A lot already arrested and hundreds more being investigated.  Charges for sedition are serious.  They should be worried.  Especially for taking selfies inside the building and posting them online!  Not very smart people...

Exactly. Doesn't matter at all if many of them are totally divorced from reality and because the reality is they participated in a terrorist attack on U.S. democracy. But for justice to really be served, the grand poobah ringleader needs to be pay the price too.

 

 

Captiol riots: Justice Dept., FBI have created a sedition and conspiracy task force to pursue charges - The Washington Post

 

Fingers crossed Trump and his inner circle of enablers will pay for this.  Sure would be good to extend it to members of congress who helped spread the voter fraud conspiracy theories.  And should would be good for them to stand up now and say all is well, congrats to Biden.  I know, wishful dreaming.

As for the role of the Capital Police on the day of infamy:

 

2 Capitol Police officers suspended and at least 10 more under investigation for alleged roles in riot

 

(CNN) Two US Capitol Police officers were suspended and at least 10 more are under investigation for their behavior during last week's assault on the Capitol, and federal agents will look at whether current and former law enforcement officers played a role in the riot.

 

One of the Capitol police officers took a selfie with someone who was part of the mob that overtook the Capitol and the other wore a "Make America Great Again" hat and started directing people around the building, according to Rep. Tim Ryan, an Ohio Democrat.

 

He didn't disclose how many other officers were under investigation but confirmed it was between 10 and 15, and didn't say what they were being scrutinized for except that it was their behavior during the riot.

More COVID related fallout from the insurrection:

 

3rd Member Of Congress Tests Positive For Coronavirus, Blames Capitol Attack Lockdown

 

"At least three Democratic members of Congress have tested positive for the coronavirus this week, blaming their results on their Republican colleagues' refusal to wear face masks during the hours-long lockdown last Wednesday as pro-Trump extremists attacked the U.S. Capitol.

 

"Only hours after Trump incited a deadly assault on our Capitol, many Republicans still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event ON TOP of a domestic terrorist attack," Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., said on Twitter.

...

"Any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy," [Jayapal] said via Twitter. "I'm calling for every single Member who refuses to wear a mask in the Capitol to be fined and removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms."

As for the few remaining "it was just a protest" comments here, note the assessment of now-former Capitol Police Chief Sund:

 

“As soon as they hit the fence line, the fight was on,” Sund said. “Violent confrontations from the start. They came with riot helmets, gas masks, shields, pepper spray, fireworks, climbing gear — climbing gear! — explosives, metal pipes, baseball bats. I have never seen anything like it in 30 years of events in Washington.”

Unless you are white of course....that's different.

 

I haven't heard one peep out of any of the Trump Admin. Justice Department HQ prosecutor folks handling the various cases filed thus far that they're charging people under that particular provision.

 

Thus far, AFAICT, it mostly seems to be ticky tacky stuff about illegal entry, theft, damage to property, etc etc.

 

I don't think there's been any charge filed thus far that specifies insurrection or sedition, etc.
