Proud Boys Leader Charged with Seditious Conspiracy over January 6 Capitol Riot

HeadlineJun 07, 2022

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and four other members of the far-right group have been charged with seditious conspiracy over their roles in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Tarrio already faced charges of obstructing Congress, destruction of government property and other crimes. This comes just days after Proud Boys member Josh Pruitt pleaded guilty to a felony charge of obstructing an official proceeding. Pruitt and another man were filmed on January 6 approaching Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and his security detail inside the Capitol Visitor Center after forcing their way into the building, prompting Senator Schumer to “run away.”
