Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
The terms "rebellion" and "insurrection" are not defined. Is there federal judicial precedent that sheds light on the meaning of these words as used in this statute? More generally, what elements or circumstances are necessary for an act to qualify as an act of rebellion or insurrection?
Edit: The supposed duplicate question (What prevents the DOJ from charging Democrats in Congress under U.S. Code § 2383?) is different, and its answer does not answer this question. It explains that a particular incident is not rebellion or insurrection, but it does not enumerate the elements that must be present for an act to constitute rebellion or insurrection. In other words, it describes in part what rebellion and insurrection are not, but it does not describe what they are.
