We are talking about the leader of the Proud Boys movement, Henry Tarrio.

The prosecutor’s office in the American Metropolitan District of Columbia has charged the leader and four members of the ultra-right Proud Boys movement with a number of crimes, including conspiracy to incite rebellion, in the case of the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. This is evidenced by documents received in the electronic database of the federal District Court.

As follows from these materials, the grand jury found the evidence presented by the authorities sufficient to formally indict the head of the Proud Boys, Henry Tarrio, and four members of the movement. Authorities believe that members of the Proud Boys were part of a group of people who broke into the U.S. Congress building. Tarrio, who was outside the District of Columbia at the time, allegedly directed their actions.

On January 6, 2021, supporters of Republican Donald Trump, who was the American leader at that time, broke into the Congress building to prevent the approval of the results of the presidential elections held in November 2020 in the country. They were won by Democrat Joe Biden.

During the riots inside the building, the police shot a demonstrator. In addition, unrelated deaths of several more people were recorded, qualified as a medical emergency. A Capitol police officer died after the clashes.
