A seditious person is as follows:
It’s someone who lies so much that it’s just a part of their life now. They usually starts at a young age and then it snowballs into their teenage and adult years. It sometimes isn’t even about big things. They’ll lie about anything just because they feel like it. Also when people expose them for being a liar that either lies more to get out of it or get extremely defensive.
Sedition is the crime of revolting or inciting revolt against government. However,because of the broad protection of free speech under the First Amendment, prosecutions for sedition are rare. Nevertheless, sedition remains a crime in the United States under 18 U.S.C.A. § 2384 (2000), a federal statute that punishes seditious conspiracy, and 18 U.S.C.A. § 2385 (2000), which outlaws advocating the overthrow of the federal government by force. Generally, a person may be punished for sedition only when he or she makes statements that create a Clear and Present Danger to rights that the government may lawfully protect (schenckv. united states, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 ).
The crime of seditious conspiracy is committed when two or more persons in any state or U.S. territory conspire to levy war against the U.S. government. A person commits the crime of advocating the violent overthrow of the federal government when she willfully advocates or teaches the overthrow of the government by force, publishes material that advocates the overthrow of the government by force, or organizes persons to overthrow the government by force. A person found guilty of seditious conspiracy or advocating the overthrow of the government may be fined and sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.States also maintain laws that punish similar advocacy and conspiracy against the state government.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on the July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that has come under scrutiny following last week’s release of a whistleblower complaint dealing, in part, with circumstances surrounding that conversation, a source familiar told CNN.
