US Capitol Riot case: 4 Proud Boys members convicted, court ruled on treason charges, attacked US parliament in support of Trump
New York. A big decision was made in the attack on the US Parliament. Four members of the Proud Boys, a pro-Donald Trump group, have been convicted of seditious conspiracy. In connection with the attack on Capitol Hill (Parliament House) on January 6, 2021, a trial was pending against 5 members charged with obstructing government process, damaging government property and conspiracy. However, due to lack of evidence against one of the defendants, the court acquitted him.
Let’s say it was the Proud Boys who organized the pro-Trump rally, where attendees stormed Capitol Hill and clashed with the police officers there. Among those charged are Enrique Tarrio, 39, Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordian and Zachary Rehl, former national president of the Proud Boys organization. Four people have been officially killed in the US Capitol violence. Donald Trump had described this attacking crowd as very special and also hailed it.

Attorney General Merrick Garland told reporters, “The court’s decision makes it clear that the Justice Department will do everything in its power to protect the American people and American democracy.” Even today, there are fears that the mob that attacked Capitol Hill was inspired by the possibility that it would halt the workings of the US Congress so that newly elected President Joe Biden could not secure the certificate of victory in the 2020 election. .
Explain that more than 1,000 people were arrested in connection with the attack on Capitol Hill by Trump supporters, more than 600 of whom were convicted. But only a few of them have sedition charges against them. Let us tell you, former US presidents strongly criticized Trump for the Capitol Hill bombing. Former President Barack Obama said history would remember the violence on Capitol Hill as an insult and humiliation to the nation.
