Former Proud Boys Leader Enrique Tarrio is Captured by the Feds Despite Not Being in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6
Former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio was apprehended by federal agents in Miami, Fla. on Tuesday and hit with several charges.
Tarrio was charged with one count of conspiracy to obstruct a federal proceeding and obstruction of an official proceeding. He was also hit with two counts each of resisting, impeding and assaulting officers and destruction of property in the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.
He was charged despite not being anywhere near the U.S. Capitol during the infamous Jan. 6 rally. Tarrio had been apprehended days earlier for allegedly vandalizing a Black Lives Matter banner outside of a church in Washington D.C. during a previous protest. He has disavowed the violence on multiple occasions.
“I don’t agree with or condone what happened at the Capitol when it comes to the violence,” Tarrio said. “We went to Washington D.C. with the intent of sitting there and supporting President Trump and then drink beer after, and obviously, I wasn’t there and I can’t tell you what was in their heads, but I think the mob mentality just took over.”
The indictment claims that Tarrio is responsible for the Jan. 6 violence because of chat messages he shared with other Proud Boys members in a direct attack on his freedom of speech.
Big League Politics has reported on the Soviet-style show trials that are being engineered as Jan. 6 patriots are given the Abu Ghraib treatment in the former land of the free:
“A defense attorney for a Jan. 6 defendant has compared the treatment of his client to Soviet Russia and claimed he has “never seen such a blatant disregard for inmates’ rights.”
“It is so utterly shameful and far reacher than Your Honor saw fit, for other reasons, to hold both the Director of the City’s Department of Corrections and the Warden of the DC Jail in contempt of court,” they added.
The defense attorney noted that the DC Jail has made it incredibly difficult for him to perform his duties as these Soviet-style show trials are initiated by the regime.
“I have practiced criminal defense as an attorney throughout this entire country and have never seen such a blatant disregard for inmates’ rights as I have seen from this DC Jail. The countless hours I fought through DC Jail bureaucracy simply to be told how I could forward Discovery to my client was nothing more than a veiled attempt to thwart and discourage inmates from receiving the proofs in their own cases,” the attorney wrote.
“When I finally learned of the DC Jail’s requirements and fully complied, the flash drive of Discovery I provided was returned to me without so much as a single note or letter as to why it was not given to my client. To this day, I cannot obtain an answer as to why that Discovery was returned to me in such a derelict fashion,” they continued.
“There is a well-documented history of the DC Jail hindering attorney/client visits as well as refusing the Capitol Riot inmates the same privileges as other inmates to email their attorneys and families. The entire world but for the DC Jail has found Zoom and other electronic applications to provide video visits in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the attorney added.“
Democrats and their partners in the media and deep state have eviscerated the rule of law to cover up the election fraud that installed President-imposed Joe Biden into office. This is how civilization dies.
