Trump under investigation for sedition in Jan. 6 riot: Ex-US Attorney

A former top prosecutor says former president Donald Trump could be found "culpable" for the Jan. 6 insurrection.

Michael Sherwin, the former acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, told CBS' "60 Minutes" there was no doubt that Trump inspired the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, which he said would not have happened without the president's lies stoking anger about election fraud.

"It's unequivocal that Trump was the magnet that brought the people to DC on the 6th," Sherwin said. "We have soccer moms from Ohio that were arrested saying, 'Well, I did this because my president said I had to take back our house.' That moves the needle towards that direction. Maybe the president is culpable for those actions."

Sherwin said investigators were looking at Trump's role in the insurrection.

"We have people looking at everything, correct," he said. "Everything's being looked at."
