Breaking: Proud Boys Charged With Sedition in Capitol Protest Case


( – HAPPENING NOW: Earlier today, in an indication that Biden’s Department of Justice is becoming increasingly aggressive and punitive in the ongoing investigation of the protest at the United States Capitol Complex on January 6th, 2021, five members of the Proud Boys — including the chairman — were charged with conspiracy to commit sedition against the United States of America.

As USA Today reports about the newest development:

“Federal prosecutors escalated their case against the Proud Boys extremist group Monday, unveiling new federal charges of seditious conspiracy against Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, the group’s former national chairman, and four top associates related to the deadly Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

“The new charges build on an earlier conspiracy case against Tarrio, 38; Ethan Nordean, 31; Joseph Biggs, 38; Zachary Rehl, 37; and Dominic Pezzola, 44, accused in an organized plot to prevent the certification of President Joe Biden’s election.” [emphasis added]

According to a statement, prosecutors allege:

“On Jan. 6, 2021, the defendants directed, mobilized, and led members of the crowd onto the Capitol grounds and into the Capitol, leading to dismantling of metal barricades, destruction of property, breaching of the Capitol building, and assaults on law enforcement. During and after the attack, Tarrio and his co-defendants claimed credit for what had happened on social media and in an encrypted chat room.”
