Two Members Of The Proud Boys Indicted For Conspiracy In Capitol Riot

In response to the indictment, Pezzola's lawyer Michael Scibetta told CNN that he was "denied contact" with his jailed client, which undercut his ability to mount a "meaningful legal defense".

The new indictment against Dominic Pezzola and William Pepe, both of NY, is the first riot-related case to accuse Proud Boys members of working together to attack the Capitol.

He has been accused by prosecutors of stealing a riot shield from one of the members of the Capitol police and was identified as one of the first people to enter the Capitol building. He argued the remarks showed Pezzola "invested a significant personal effort to take over the Capitol and that he did so in co-ordination with others".

When Pezzola was arrested, FBI agents found a thumb drive with hundreds of documents that had bomb-making and do-it-yourself gun making instructions, according to documents filed in federal court Friday. The presidential inauguration was January 20.

The complaint says the men then allegedly became involved in the "confrontation with Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman", who has been hailed after being seen in a viral video leading the mob away from a doorway heading to the Senate floor - which at the time had not been evacuated. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh has called for the them to be designated a terrorist group, and the federal government is considering it.

According to Vice News' reporting, Pezzola is a former Marine who went to The Aquinas Institute of Rochester, a private high school. Of the more than 170 people charged to date, the only other serious conspiracy charges in the inquiry have been brought against three members of a militia group known as the Oath Keepers, who have been accused of making advanced preparations for the January 6 rally in Washington that predate even the November 3 presidential election. Pepe, who lives in Beacon in New York's Hudson Valley, has since been suspended without pay from his job at the New York City-area commuter railroad. Some then stormed it, temporarily disrupting Congress's certification of Democratic President Joe Biden's victory over Trump, a Republican, in the November 3 election.

When an Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent showed up there to interview both men, "they advised that they wanted to turn themselves in, and wanted to have an attorney present before they answered questions", the complaint said. In a notable moment on the campaign trail past year, Trump told the group to "stand back and stand by" when asked at a September debate whether he would condemn white supremacist and militia groups that showed up at some protests last summer. Group members typically sport black and yellow clothing, with Proud Boys patches and apparel.
