A New York man who joined the far-right Proud Boys organization at the January 6 Capitol insurrection has pleaded guilty to charges of obstructing Congress and conspiring to obstruct law enforcement. As part of a plea deal, 34-year-old Matthew Greene of Syracuse has disavowed the Proud Boys and will help the FBI in its investigation. Greene told investigators he helped program hand-held radios used by the Proud Boys to coordinate their assault on the Capitol. Greene is the first Proud Boys member to plead guilty to the conspiracy charge.
Meanwhile, the House committee investigating the Capitol riot has asked Ohio Republican — and Trump ally — Jim Jordan to appear before the committee. The committee says Jordan spoke to Trump at least once on the day of the insurrection and may have been involved in organizing or planning actions and strategies around January 6.
