(DCWatchdog.com) – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, in a sign that the United States Department of Justice within the presidential administration of Joe Biden is ramping up the seriousness of the criminal charges it is bringing in the ongoing investigation of the protest that took place at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, five members of the Proud Boys have now been charged with conspiracy to commit sedition against the United States of America.
As the Washington Post notes concerning the just breaking news:
“Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, longtime chairman of the extremist group Proud Boys, was indicted on a new federal charge of seditious conspiracy with four top lieutenants on Monday. The charges expand the Justice Department’s allegations of an organized plot to unleash political violence to prevent the confirmation of President Biden’s election victory on Jan. 6, 2021, when a pro-Trump mob attacked the U.S. Capitol…
“A new 10-count superseding indictment returned Monday morning charges Tarrio, Pezzola and three other existing co-defendants — Ethan Nordean, of Seattle, Joe Biggs, of the Daytona Beach area, and Zachary Rehl, of Philadelphia — with coordinating travel to Washington and the movements of the group around the Capitol that day. The group is also accused of plotting to foment a riot and storm Congress, action that eventually forced the evacuation of lawmakers meeting to confirm the 2020 election results.” [emphasis added]
