The Department of Justice has asked its Office of Professional Responsibility to review federal prosecutor Michael Sherwin’s comments that sedition charges are likely in the criminal investigation into the Capitol riots, reports Axios via the Washington Post. The DOJ watchdog will review whether Sherwin, who was leading the investigation into the insurrection until last Friday violated department policy during his CBS interview, broadcast Sunday. His comments to CBS’ “60 Minutes” were the subject of an emergency meeting called by District Judge Amit Mehta on Tuesday, who said “these kinds of statements in the media have the potential of affecting the jury pool … I intend to enforce that rule vigorously,” according to Politico.
