Documents In January 6th Conspiracy Case Showcase Plan Of Attack On Government Buildings

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio’s indictment on conspiracy charges related to the January 6th attack is now linked to the new release of documents demonstrating that the storming of a Federal building wasn’t an unplanned impulse.

The New York Times reports that documents filed in Tarrio’s case show the militia leader was caught in possession of a plan that laid out steps for taking over seven government buildings, though the Capitol Building was not on the list. Tarrio was not actually present at the rally, riot, and attempted insurrection, following a previous arrest for the destruction of a Black Lives Matter banner stolen from a D.C. church. However, the document links him directly to the act of conspiring to carry out an attack on the government.

The steps include Infiltrate, Execution, Distract, Occupy, and Sit-In, with directions to have at least 50 participants per building. It cites a “signal from lead” that would be given after 1pm, initiating the storming of buildings.

This indictment of Tarrio and other Proud Boys lays out the allegations, saying that the listed defendants “did knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with each other and other persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury, to corruptly obstruct, influence and impede an official proceeding…” and that “the purpose of the conspiracy was to stop, delay, and hinder the Certification of the Electoral College vote.”

The group reportedly used both secure and insecure communication channels to make their plans, and one voice note posted by Tarrio on January 4th, two days before the attack, stated, “You want to storm the Capitol.”
