Jan. 6 Defendant Released From Prison By DC Judge

A Jan. 6 defendant who entered U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, will be released early from prison by order of the Supreme Court, according to The National Pulse.

Kevin Seefried of Laurel, Deleware, was granted early release after the Supreme Court decided to take up a relevant appeal. Seefried was to serve a three-year prison term for “obstruction of an official proceeding,” and another year and a half on misdemeanor charges.

Hundreds of other Capitol Hill protesters charged with obstruction by the federal government could be impacted by the Supreme Court decision, according to The Washington Times.

Seefried’s felony conviction stemmed from the same charge hundreds of other Jan. 6 defendants were hit with. The Supreme Court has decided to review the appeal next month.

On Tuesday, Trump appointee U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden said that Seefried could be released on May 31 as the Supreme Court reviews his felony charge. The judge reasoned that the end of May was enough to satisfy Seefried’s sentence for the misdemeanor charges.

May 31 will be the one-year anniversary of Seefried’s incarceration.

“The riot on January 6th was the culmination of a unique — indeed, never-before-seen — confluence of events,” the judge wrote.

“The Government provides the Court no evidence suggesting that any of the events that led to that riot are reasonably likely to recur. Nor does it point to any evidence that Seefried would participate in another riot if they did,” the judge continued.

Contrary to McFadden’s characterization of Jan. 6 as a riot, the left desperately clings to the idea that what happened on that day was an “insurrection.” The differences between them are as plain as night and day.

The government argued against Seefried being released pending the high court’s upcoming case by whipping up the fear the election year could encourage the same “political maelstrom” seen on Jan. 6.

Seefried was one of the first protesters to enter the Capitol on Jan. 6. Court documents indicate this was “something that did not happen even during the Civil War.” Seefried then “used the flag to strike at a black police officer before chasing him through the building.”

The obstruction charge Seefried is dealing with is also at the center of the Supreme-Court-approved case Fischer v. United States. The Fischer case challenges the unique manner the Department of Justice has used the obstruction charge to prosecute Jan 6 protestors.

The DOJ has argued the Jan. 6 riot amounted to obstruction of an official proceeding.

However, relevant laws passed in the wake of the Enron energy scandal were not intended to target protestors but people who doctor and destroy documents.

If Fischer succeeds at the Supreme Court, many protestors tried on obstruction of an official proceeding charges could be freed.

That’s not all. The “conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding” and “obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding” charges are among those special Counsel Jack Smith has leveled against Donald Trump.

A Fischer success could cut Smith’s case against Trump “in half,” according to the Pulse.

Jan. 6 prosecutions are accelerating rather than decelerating over time. Prosecutors are targeting people for minor offenses such as those thrown at MAGA influencer Isabella DeLuca. Deluca allegedly committed the crime of touching a table that was later passed out of a broken window.

The left is desperate and it shows.
