Proud Boys Stand Trial for Seditious Conspiracy over Jan. 6 Violence

HeadlineDec 20, 2022

Jury selection got underway Monday in the trial of the former leader of the far-right Proud Boys organization and four of his associates. Enrique Tarrio and the others each face nine counts including seditious conspiracy against the United States, after they heeded then-President Donald Trump’s call to “fight like hell” at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. All five men have pleaded not guilty; their attorneys have argued their actions were constitutionally protected “free speech.”
