Making Their Mamas Proud: Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio charged with conspiracy in Jan. 6 Capitol attack

Enrique Tarrio did not participate in the MAGAt attack on our Capitol on Jan. 6 because Metropolitan D.C. police arrested him two days before the insurrection on unrelated charges and a judge baby barred him from protesting in the city. However, in a dawn raid Tuesday, FBI agents arrested him in Florida on conspiracy charges in relation to the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021; he will make his initial court appearance later in the day.

The indictment alleges that “Tarrio nonetheless continued to direct and encourage the Proud Boys prior to and during the events of Jan. 6, 2021, and that he claimed credit for what had happened on social media and in an encrypted chat room during and after the attack,” according to a Department of Justice press release.
