Capitol Riot: Committee to Seek CRIMINAL Charges For Trump

The congressional inquiry into last year's Capitol riot will reportedly recommend three criminal charges against former President Donald Trump.

BBC News 17 DEC 2022.





The House of Representatives select committee will seek an unprecedented charge of insurrection against a former US president, according to US media.

The panel is expected to publish its final report next week.


Trump supporters stormed Congress on 6 January 2021 in a bid to stop Joe Biden's certification as president.

The justice department - which is already investigating Mr Trump's role in the unrest - is not obliged to consider referrals from any congressional panel.

Mr Trump denies wrongdoing. On Friday his spokesman, Steven Cheung, said in a statement: "The January 6th un-Select Committee held show trials by Never Trump partisans who are a stain on this country's history."

The select committee is scheduled to hold its final meeting on Monday when any charging recommendations would be unveiled.

As well as insurrection, according to various outlets, the panel will suggest Mr Trump be charged with obstructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

The nine panellists are expected to approve the final eight-chapter report, drawing on interviews with more than 1,000 witnesses, and submit it to the Department of Justice (DoJ).

The full report will be made public on Wednesday, said chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat who is helming the select committee.

California congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, another member of the panel, told CNN on Friday that the lawmakers have "been very careful in crafting these [charging] recommendations and tethering them to the facts that we've uncovered".

The House select committee has argued Mr Trump spread claims that he knew were false about the 2020 presidential election being stolen, before pressuring state officials, the justice department and his own vice-president to help subvert his defeat. The panel accuses him of inciting the Capitol riot in a last-ditch bid to remain in power.

The DoJ is already investigating the then-Republican president's actions surrounding the riot.

Seven days after the raid on Congress, the House impeached Mr Trump for a second time on the grounds of incitement of insurrection.

Trump, who is the only president to ever be impeached twice, was cleared by the US Senate.

Last month, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a former war crimes prosecutor to decide whether Mr Trump should be prosecuted.


Jack Smith is tasked with determining if the 2024 presidential candidate should be put on trial for mishandling classified files that were recovered during an FBI search of Mr Trump's Florida estate in August, or for encouraging the violent mob on 6 January 2021.

US Capitol Riot Committee Recommends Criminal Charges Against Donald Trump

BBC News 20 DEC 2022.



The committee of lawmakers investigating the attempted insurrection at the US Capitol building has recommended criminal charges against former president Donald Trump and his allies.

While it will be up to the Department of Justice and Attorney General to decide whether to prosecute, it is a decisive end to one of the most extensive and aggressive congressional probes in memory.

The House January 6 committee released a lengthy summary of its final report, including findings that Mr Trump engaged in a “multi-part conspiracy” to overturn the 2020 Presidential election result.

Made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans, the committee alleged four criminal offences by Mr Trump, in both the run-up to the 2021 riot, and during the insurrection itself.

The charges recommended by the panel are conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress, conspiracy to make a false statement and aiding an insurrection.

Proud Boys Face Seditious Conspiracy Trial For Capitol Riot\

The defendants include Proud Boys national leader at the time, Henry "Enrique" Tarrio.


BBC News.11 JAN 2023






Five members of the far-right Proud Boys group will go on trial this week charged with seditious conspiracy in the latest case involving alleged ringleaders of the 6 January 2021 Capitol riot.




Proud Boys, many wearing orange hats, along with other rioters outside the US Capitol on 6 January 2021



In addition to seditious conspiracy, the five have been charged with eight other crimes including obstructing law enforcement and destruction of government property.

If convicted, the Proud Boys will be looking at significant time in prison. The seditious conspiracy charge alone carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.


Who is on Trial and Why?

Alongside Mr Tarrio, who was at the violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 and became the group's leader the following year, the Proud Boys on trial are:

Ethan Nordean, 31, of Washington state, who goes by the alias "Rufio Panman". Mr Nordean was active in street protests and brawls with anti-fascist activists in the Pacific Northwest. In video from 6 January, he's seen leading members of the group around the Capitol
Joe Biggs, 38, of Florida.



Mr Biggs is a US Army veteran and former broadcaster for Alex Jones's Infowars. He was pictured next to Mr Nordean throughout the riot


Zachary Rehl, 37, a former US Marine and the leader of the Philadelphia branch of the Proud Boys


Dominic Pezzola, 44, of Rochester in New York state. Prosecutors say Mr Pezzola, also a former US Marine, was one of the first people to reach one of the entrances to the Capitol, where he took a riot shield off a police officer and smashed a window




Joe Biggs (l) and Enrique Tarrio at a rally in Portland in September 2020




Prosecutors say Proud Boys repeatedly posted a number of violent threats online, for instance in November 2020, Mr Tarrio wrote on a post by Joe Biden: "YOU need to remember the American people are at war with YOU. No TRUMP…No peace. No quarter." Others posted about civil war, firing squads and "traitors".


In late December 2020, the Proud Boys leaders created a new chapter which they referred to as the "Ministry of Self Defense". Government prosecutors say the group then began planning for violence in earnest.

Proud Boys gathered near the Washington Monument on the morning of the riot before making their way to the Capitol. More than 100 members of the group were present that day, and dozens have subsequently been arrested.

Lawyers for the defendants are expected to argue that the group was poorly organised and that there was no preconceived plan to storm the building. They've also noted in a pre-trial motion that Mr Tarrio was in touch with police before 6 January and informed law enforcement of the group's plans for the day.

Jury selection for the trial began before Christmas but has been relatively slow as many potential jurors have expressed negative views of the group. Opening statements in the trial are set to begin later this week.


Who are Proud Boys?

The Proud Boys were founded in New York City in 2016 by Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of Vice who left the media company to embark on a career as a right-wing commentator and podcaster.

They describe themselves as an all-male drinking club with bizarre initiation rituals, or a "pro-Western fraternal organisation".

But they are better known for their frequent brawls with left-wing anti-fascist activists in cities across the US.

In a 2019 BBC documentary, Proud Boys in Portland, Oregon, boasted about arrests and street fighting.

They later came to widespread fame after a presidential debate in September 2020. During a discussion about extremism, Joe Biden mentioned the organisation. Donald Trump responded by saying: "Proud Boys, stand back and stand by."

While they have a number of non-white members and Mr Tarrio himself has Afro-Cuban heritage, they are designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which notes that their "actions belie their disavowals of bigotry" and that members "regularly spout white nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists".


How is this trial different from the Oath Keepers case?


In November last year the leader of the Oath Keepers militia, Stewart Rhodes, and head of the group's Florida chapter, Kelly Meggs, were convicted of seditious conspiracy - the most serious charges levelled against the more than 900 people who have been arrested in connection with the Capitol attack.

Unlike his co-defendants, Mr Tarrio was not in Washington during the riot. He faced charges after burning a Black Lives Matter banner that was stolen from a Washington church and was also charged with violating weapons laws.

He was arrested on 4 January 2021, and when he was bailed he was ordered by the judge to leave Washington and ended up watching events from a hotel room in nearby Baltimore.

Although both Oath Keepers and Proud Boys were staunch supporters of Donald Trump, documents released by a congressional committee investigating the riot showed a sharp rift between the two groups over allegations of racism.

Oath Keepers agreed to provide security for an event organised by Proud Boys in Portland - one of the hotbeds of the group's activities - in 2019. But Rhodes pulled his group out of the event when he found out about an invited speaker who allegedly held white nationalist views.

Mr Tarrio was angry at the move, and he told congressional investigators: "I didn't like Stewart Rhodes. I still don't like Stewart Rhodes."

While the Oath Keepers have mostly stopped functioning since the Capitol riot, Proud Boys have continued to remain active, including holding protests at drag shows and supporting anti-abortion activists.






Proud Boys have continued to hold events and protests since January 2021



What is Seditious Conspiracy?


Under US law, seditious conspiracy is defined as a plot to overthrow the government or use force "to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States".


It's a rarely used law that dates from the Civil War, and the Oath Keepers case was the first successful prosecution for seditious conspiracy since 1995. Three other members of that militia were acquitted of the charge during last year's trial.

Seditious conspiracy is less serious than treason, which is the only crime specifically spelled out in the US Constitution and requires a high standard of proof - the testimony of at least two witnesses in open court or a confession. Treason can also be punishable by the death penalty.

Two Proud Boys, Charles Donohoe and Jeremy Bertino, have already pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy and may be called as witnesses at the trial.

Voluminous evidence in the form of messages, videos and social media posts, along with a long list of potential witnesses, means that the trial is likely to last at least six weeks.

Oath Keepers Guilty of Sedition in Capitol Riot Trial

US jury convicts man pictured with feet on Pelosi’s desk during Capitol attack


BBC 24 JAN 2023




Four members of the far-right Oath Keepers militia group were found guilty Monday of sedition for taking part in the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

A jury convicted Roberto Minuta, Joseph Hackett, David Moerschel and Edward Vallejo of conspiring against the US government when they sought to block Congress's certification of Joe Biden's victory over Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.



In a separate Washington courtroom Monday, meanwhile, Richard Barnett, the man famously photographed on January 6 with his feet on a desk in House speaker Nancy Pelosi's office, was convicted of disrupting Congress and other crimes.

The convictions brought to around 530 the number of people who have been found guilty or pleaded guilty for taking part in what prosecutors have called an insurrection to keep Trump in the White House after his election loss.

More than 950 people have been arrested for taking part, most on lesser charges of illegally entering the Capitol or causing property damage.

But more than 280 have been charged with assaulting law enforcement officers and 50 with serious conspiracy crimes.

Monday's verdicts came two months after the conviction of two January 6 Oath Keepers for seditious conspiracy. It is extremely rare for prosecutors to press this charge, and conviction can bring up to 20 years in prison.

The verdicts appeared to increase the chance for a similar ruling in the ongoing trial of another far-right group, the Proud Boys, for their roles in the attacks.

The success of federal prosecutors in obtaining convictions for sedition among the January 6 rioters could raise the stakes for Trump and his advisors in the Justice Department's investigation into whether they plotted or fomented the Capitol attack.

Barnett, 62, was not accused of conspiring against the government. He became one of the faces of the January 6 attack for the pictures of him leaning back in a chair and propping his boots on the desk in the office of Democrat Pelosi, the most powerful politician in Congress at the time.

He was convicted on eight counts including obstructing Congress's certification of the election, illegally entering the Capitol and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon, the latter referring to an electric stun weapon disguised as a walking stick.

But while in Pelosi's office he wrote a crude message to her and then took with him an envelop she had signed.

After he left the room he told media that he had bled on the desk.
"I put a quarter on her desk even though she ain't f...ing worth it," he said, according to a court filing.
"And I left her a note on her desk that says 'Nancy, Bigo was here, you Bitch,'" he said, using his nickname.

Barnett, described in court filings as a supporter of the QAnon conspiracy theory alleging a global liberal plot to kidnap children, had defended his actions as an exercise of his constitutional right to protest.

He faces in total up to 47 years in prison.
