Prof. Alan Rozenshtein Quoted in New York Times About 18-Year Sedition Sentence for Oath Keeper Leader and Former President Trump's Culpability in the Jan. 6 Insurrection

Prof. Alan Rozenshtein was quoted in a New York Times article focused on the 18-year sentence of Oath Keeper leader Stewart Rhodes. Rozenshtein, who has written extensively about sedition, cautioned that it could be difficult to use the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys cases as any kind of precedent to build a sedition case against Mr. Trump.

“Trump is a unique defendant in a league by himself,” Rozenshtein said. “He’s also a chaos agent and pinning down his actions in a way that shows he did any sort of planning has always been the tricky part.”
