“by force to prevent, hinder or delay the execution of any law of the United States”
Of course, I can hear the crack Trump legal team dismantle this theory of the case against their persecuted client:
“We must read this law in the strict sense of the intent of its framers. This section of the federal criminal code applies to the forcible prevention, hindering or delay of the execution of any LAW. The tallying of the electoral votes is a ministerial duty, not a LAW. Likewise, the so-called peaceful transfer of power is a tradition, a norm, an aspiration, like the self-evident truth that all men are created equal — not a LAW. Where no law has been forcibly prevented, hindered, delayed… Your Honors, why is the bailiff approaching me so menacingly?”
Naturally, rightwing media, foreign and domestic, has been out in front of this story for quite some time. Check out this headline under a Der Sturmer-inspired self-created masthead:
Fake News US Mainstream Media Falls Into “Sedition Conspiracy” Trap Trump Can Now Use To Jail Them
March 7, 2019 Sorcha Faal
A very interesting new Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today confirming that the US government has been secretly tracking journalist activities, states that this counterintelligence measure conforms to actions expected if President Trump was preparing to criminally charge his nation’s socialist-led mainstream media establishment using his country’s “Seditious Conspiracy” law that outlaws any conspiracy to overthrow, put down, or destroy by force the government of the United States—which this media establishment, and its socialist Democrat Party co-conspirators, are provably in violation of as they enter into their third consecutive year of open warfare against Trump in order to fuel the drumbeat of civil war that has now become audible across the entirety of America. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.] 
At the site above you can find many wonderful Russian accented articles, so you know they’re true: Pompeo Oversees Capture Of UN Pedo Who Leaked Video Of Hillary Killing Child (April 18, 2018); Declassified JFK Files: Multiple Shooters, FBI Paid Oswald, CIA Makes Fake News, LBJ Was Coup Linchpin and in KKK (October 31, 2017, Happy Halloween, whackos!); Vanity Fair: Hillary threatened to “shoot the panda”, Seth Rich’s Handle was “Panda” (June 3, 2017). And so forth.
Look, there’s a lot of noise, and political barking, screeching, posturing, etc. as our nation dances around the viability of outright American fascism. The facts of the riot at the Capitol on January 6th are pretty clear to anyone who watched the well-funded “Stop the Steal” rally, a promised “wild time” advertised for weeks by the president and climaxed in Trump himself urging patriots to go down to the Capitol to fight like hell and stop the steal. When Trump was done “provoking” them (McConnell) the mob marched down Pennsylvania Avenue to take over the Capitol and disrupt the certification of the election Trump claims was rigged against him.
There is ample footage of the mob violence right after Trump’s rousing remarks about a stolen election, several deaths (including the fatal trampling of a MAGA woman holding a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag) and, oddly only about 14 arrests (less than the amount of wheelchair-bound protesters typically handcuffed during one of their non-forcible disability rights protests in the Capitol…). Trump watched the riot unfold live on TV for HOURS, including the crowd chanting for Mike Pence’s head, before federal authorities gave local authorities permission to deploy National Guard troops. Participants in the riot were allowed to leave the Capitol unmolested (rather than “kettled” and taken into custody en masse as in most far less violent protests) and many of them walked D.C. for hours after the curfew, in the afterglow. The president publicly announced that he loved them (though he privately expressed disappointment at how “low class” they looked).
Trump’s party will do its best to allow their leader to leave the scene of carnage unmolested, his influence, prestige and historical importance intact. They took a procedural vote last week during which 45 of the 50 Republican senators signed on to the controversial idea that the impeachment is “unconstitutional” since the offender is no longer in office as of the date when the “trial” is supposed to begin (never mind when the Article of Impeachment was filed or that McConnell left the Senate on vacation until the “constitutional” time to hear the case “expired”).
This procedural dodge reminds me of what a law professor told our class the first semester of law school: “give me the choice of all the facts and the law in my favor or procedure in my favor, I’ll take procedure every time.”
The crank who brought the vote on this impeachment’s constitutionality to the floor, Rand Paul, complained two days earlier (falsely) that ALL of the Trump election fraud suits were dismissed on technicalities. If this was true (it’s not) it follows that the question of whether Trump actually won the election but was illegally deprived of victory by massive electoral fraud and irregularities was never reached in court, is still an open question. Possible massive (non-white) election fraud is a question Rand Paul will be raising, he promised, all over the country during the next two years. He also complained that the interviewer (George Stephanopolous) was calling him a liar, as the Left always likes to do with all Republicans.
Then, like his kind always does, Rand made a rousing speech on the floor of the Senate and called for a vote to invoke a technicality to make the case against his leader go away.
Of the 45 who symbolically voted to invalidate the impeachment on constitutional grounds, five of these senators were part of the delegation of ten “bipartisan Republicans” that went to Biden, in a spirit of bipartisanship, to argue that the average American doesn’t need a $1,400 check, that the COVID relief bill should be a small fraction of the $1,900,000,000,000 that the Biden administration is proposing. Of course, if Biden doesn’t take their generous offer of a fractional bipartisan bill he is a liar, far from the uniter and president of all Americans he falsely promised he would be.
You see how profitably irrationality sells these days?
 The article continues:
According to this report, in order to protect itself against an internal rebellion threatening to overthrow its government, the United States has in current legal force numerous federal laws contained in 18 U.S. Code Chapter 115—Treason, Sedition, And Subversive Activities—the main one being 18 U.S. Code Section 2384 Seditious Conspiracy that outlaws 2 or more persons from attempting to overthrow the government.
Under the provisions outlined in this “Seditious Conspiracy” law, this report says it’s important to note, the legal definition of the word “conspiracy” mandates it must be an agreement between two or more people to commit an illegal act, along with an intent to achieve the agreement’s goal—and was a legal standard met just hours ago when the Democrat Party shockingly announced it had barred Fox Newsfrom hosting any of its 2020 presidential candidate debates—a vile act President Trump rapidly responded to by Tweeting: “Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!”.
