Proud Boys seditious conspiracy trial enters 32nd day
From emptywheel: Please help support Brandi’s important coverage with a donation to the site.
Hello, I’m Brandi Buchman and I am a reporter covering the aftermath of the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. I have covered the events of Jan. 6 since their inception and I have covered the Proud Boys seditious conspiracy trial since its start as well as the first Oath Keepers seditious conspiracy trial gavel-to-gavel.
It is the 32nd day (and eighth week) of the Proud Boys seditious conspiracy trial involving ringleader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio and his cohorts Ethan Nordean, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl, and Dominic Pezzola. After a break for jurors on Monday—a lengthy motion hearing was held outside of their presence—they will return on Tuesday to hear more evidence from the prosecution as the historic trial trudges toward its expected end this April.
Monday’s motion hearing focused exclusively on the admissibility of certain evidence presented under a key legal argument advanced by the prosecution known as the “tools” theory. In short, prosecutors argue that roughly two dozen associates and/or members of the Proud Boys were utilized as blunt “tools” by the defendants on Jan. 6 to pull off the plot to forcibly stop the certification of the 2020 election.
It was Tarrio and his fellow chapter leaders, the Justice Department contends, who handpicked the “tools” of the conspiracy, and of those individuals identified, most were not charged alongside Tarrio, Nordean, Biggs, Rehl, or Pezzola. The defense has balked over whether some of the tools were truly members of Proud Boys and has suggested this “catch-all” approach by the prosecution is improper.
Presiding U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly has for weeks accepted the government’s “tools” theory as viable, so the fight during Monday’s motion hearing largely revolved around the admissibility of specific video footage featuring roughly two-dozen so-called “tools” of the conspiracy.
Here’s a bit of background for the “tools” listed by prosecutors:
William Pepe, a former Proud Boy of New York, was seen near Pezzola in footage from Jan. 6 and he was originally charged in the same indictment. Pepe was also a member of Boots on the Ground, a Proud Boys chat set up specifically for Jan. 6, 2021. He was not, however, a member of the Ministry of Self-Defense chat where operations for the Capitol assault were allegedly hashed out among a core group of Proud Boy leaders including the defendants.
Barton Shively, a former aspiring Proud Boy of Pennsylvania—allegedly—is seen on footage from Jan. 6 where he’s near the Washington Monument on the morning of the 6th. This was a designated meet-up location for the defendants, prosecutors argue. Shivley has already pleaded guilty to assaulting police.
Christopher Worrell, a Proud Boy of Florida who used a chemical spray on officers and was a member of Boots on the Ground chat, is seen in video clips from Jan. 6 where he’s very close to fellow Proud Boys who breached barriers.
Dan “Milkshake” Scott, a Proud Boy of Florida, breached police lines after marching with Proud Boys. Defense attorneys on Monday vehemently denied Scott’s membership with the organization.
Barry Ramey, an alleged Proud Boy of Florida, was in Scott’s proximity on Jan. 6 as they marched on the Capitol. Ramey has been charged with assaulting police with chemical spray and defense attorneys for Tarrio have argued he is not an official member of the extremist group.
Marc Bru, a Proud Boy from Washington state, is seen on video footage leading a group of people toward the Capitol, according to prosecutors.
Trevor McDonald, who entered the Capitol with defendant Joseph Biggs, has been brought forward as a tool of the conspiracy by prosecutors but evidence of his direct connection to the Proud Boys struck Judge Kelly as thin. McDonald came to Washington on Jan. 6 with his father, Shannon Rusch. In video clips, McDonald is seen near Biggs, Nordean, and Rehl as well as other Proud Boys like Gilbert Fonticoba, Arthur Jackman, and Paul Rae.
Ronald Loehrke, an alleged Proud Boy of Washington state, received a text from defendant Ethan Nordean leading up to the Capitol attack where Nordean suggested bringing him to the front lines. Loehrke promised in return that he would bring “bad motherfuckers” to the Capitol.
James Haffner of Washington state appears in Jan. 6 footage wielding chemical irritants, and prosecutors say evidence shows Haffner standing close to Biggs before helping tear apart barricades at the Capitol.
Nicholas Ochs, a Proud Boy chapter leader from Hawaii and onetime elder of the extremist group, made it into the Capitol on Jan. 6 and recorded another Proud Boy, Nicholas DeCarlo, writing “Murder the Media” onto a door. Once inside, prosecutors say Ochs interacted with Nordean.
Gilbert Fonticoba, a member and alleged “captain” of the Proud Boys Ministry of Self Defense group, Fonticoba participated in the Proud Boys Boots on the Ground chat where operations for Jan. 6 were siloed. Prosecutors say Tarrio invited Fonticoba into the Ministry group chat but defense attorneys have denied this connection. Other evidence shows Fonticoba reported his location back to Proud Boy Aaron Wolkind during some of the thickest rioting and after Wolkind told Proud Boys he was “storming the Capitol” several times.
Paul Rae made it inside of the Capitol on Jan. 6 and prosecutors argue they heard Rae on footage telling members to “find” former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Arthur Jackman met up with Proud Boys at the Washington Monument on the morning of Jan. 6 and is an alleged member of the group.
Eddie George Jr. of Florida, a member of the Ministry of Self-Defense chat, appeared in a selfie with Biggs and Nordean on Jan. 6 and faces multiple charges including obstruction, disorderly conduct, and civil disorder.
Nate and Kevin Tuck, are a father-son duo from Florida. Kevin Tuck was a police officer and Nate Tuck was a former police officer who resigned in 2020. Kevin Tuck resigned after his arrest in July 2021.
Alan AJ Fisher III was a member of both the Ministry of Self Defense and Boots on the Ground chat who joined Nordean and Joseph Biggs at an AirBnB in D.C. on the eve of the insurrection. Footage shows Fisher at the lower west terrace tunnel archway of the Capitol on Jan. 6, close to where some of the worst violence of the day occurred.
Brian Boele ends up at the lower west terrace tunnel archway and may have been a direct part of the violent push inside the tunnel.
Dion Rajewski ends up at the lower west terrace tunnel archway with Fisher III and Zach Johnson and others.
Zach Johnson, a member of Boots on the Ground chat appeared in a selfie with defendant Biggs, at the lower west tunnel archway. He also appears in video footage from the west plaza where Biggs, Nordean, and others are spotted near him. Also appearing in the video from this time and place are Rae, Boele, Fonticoba, and Fisher.
James Brett IV was at the lower west tunnel archway and was later seen inside of the Capitol.
Other individuals like Robert Gieswein and William Chrestman were initially featured on the government’s list of “tools” of the conspiracy. But on Monday, neither Gieswein nor Chrestman made the cut.
Though he was short on details on Tuesday morning once court was underway, Judge Kelly said he would exclude evidence from Barry Ramey and Barton Shivley.
“The constellation of information we knew about these two people didn’t get over the hump as far as evidence being sufficiently relevant,” Kelly said.
Video evidence identifying Dion Rajewski, Brian Boele, and James Brett will be excluded in part for now but videos showing AJ Fischer and Zach Johnson in this group can be included. Kelly said footage involving AJ Fisher and Zach Johnson can come in because they are seen marching with defendants on the national mall.
To save the jury time this morning, Judge Kelly said he would explain his decisions at length about the “tools” of the conspiracy in writing later.
Thank you. You fit right in here.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of the reasons that CARLSON propagated this bs yesterday.
Marcy [at “Welcome to Brandi” post]: (the lawyer Joe Biggs shares with Alex Jones, Norm Pattis, claims he wants to call Donald Trump to testify)
Bmaz comments that Kelly would have to be insane.
This is from Kyle Cheney, yesterday:

Thanks for the background Ms. Buchman, and for the work done on documenting the various trials of J6 defendants. I’m sure you have the patience of Job to listen to all of it and not barf.
I do have a question for the board regarding Speaker McCarthy’s ‘release’ to Tucker Carlson of (allegedly) vetted 40k+ hours of footage. We know from the Speaker’s ‘clarification’ that Carlson was only interested in certain parts of the tape (which would mean it will be edited) and that one of the PB lawyers (IIRC Pattis) is already pushing for a mistrial based on what he’s claiming the government is hiding. I would expect further motions based upon selected excerpts with the usual RWNM attention to slanting the story.
Essentially, the question is this: would it be wiser for the judge to subpoena the footage sent by McCarthy for the court’s review and evidentiary hearing or to prohibit using it as hearsay because of what McCarthy and Carlson will do to the record by their editing? While the former choice would cause some delays, it would at least remove any legitimate claim of bias. The latter choice means that the jury sees what the government presents as evidence already vetted through the pretrial motions, meaning the defense had a chance to challenge it and will do so again in court. As noted, we will see at least two weeks of defense argument where I would be surprised if they don’t try to bring in some of the Tucker Tapes.
The first set was aired last night and it was bad enough that Chuck Schumer ripped it on the Senate floor. So, perhaps this is a better procedural question. Does the defense have to show cause or fight to include these edited videos as evidence? I would think they would since the preliminary hearings would have sorted out what the government could present as evidence.
I was rather unimpressed with the tape footage that Tucker Carlson released. Maybe it was new to his audience, but it was really nothing that we hadn’t seen before.
Judging from the total lack of anything to do with the Dominion suit or Tucker’s comments on the Fox News website I would say that it’s all they have seen. Tucker is doubling down on his claims and doing so with the confidence of a man who knows he’s operating an echo chamber.
I asked one of my neighbors, he of the MAGA tribe, what he thought of the Dominion lawsuit against Fox and he had no idea what I was talking about. There are millions more of him.
The fun part is imagining the stress levels of the OAN and Newsmax leadership. They’d love to aid in the take-down of Fox, but can’t do it without exposing their own brand of BS and incriminating themselves.
The snake is eating itself.

Woo hoo! Welcome to emptywheel Brandi! And thanks to Marcy for making the space for your invaluable reporting!
Awesome! I love BB!
Normally and rightfully, repetitive comments are bad form here at EW.
But there are exceptions, of which this is one, and I just want to add my voice to the chorus of those who have been extremely impressed with your work to date and are pleased to see you in this new venue prior to Whatever Comes Next.
Thoughts too for your family and your father.
Finally, I for one hope the morning establishing shot photos will continue as well. They’ve been a deft means of gaining some visibility and reinforcing your presence there and mostly they’ve been a cheery appetizer for each day’s quite serious main course.
ps: oops, I missed the photo. So then: I am GLAD the morning photo tradition lives on!
I love the morning photo!

WHO is “they”?
12:16 PM [First mention of the word “walk” by TRUMP]
And I’ll ask again, as I did here [where there’s more info on this time period]:
QUESTION: WHEN, during TRUMP’s speech, [11:57AM to 1:10 PM] was Mark MEADOWS sitting in the control car [secretively] talking on the PHONE for more than 20-25 minutes?
[Approx] 11:15 AM BIGGS phones SHROYER [who is with JONES and ALEXANDER]
12:19 PM ALEXANDER [who is with JONES and SHROYER] to WREN [text][J6CTr]:
[Asks “– if POTUS is walking and for her to give you an update every 5 minutes”]
The 12:19 PM call is in Central time and is really at 1:19 PM Eastern. That’s from the J6C who were sloppy about times.
Hopefully the Biggs call is correctly timed, if it’s from the DOJ
Yikes! THANKS so much for the correction!
I admire your work very much.
Thank you for that, and for making it available to us.
It’s just really hard to keep up with!
[I apologize to all reading.
I hope there are no more mistakes… :-/ :-/ :-/]
[^^^ I mean: mistakes in my own MESS of docs and comments.]
I got the ALEXANDER time from Marcy, who did a great twitter thread on his J6C transcript: [It was in a question from the Committee]
4:07 PM · Dec 28, 2022]
The BIGGS call timing came from the J6C Report itself [unfortunately not from DOJ]: https://www.emptywheel.net/2023/01/17/trump-worked-with-people-who-worked-with-the-proud-boys-to-obstruct-the-peaceful-transfer-of-power/
[< fn126. Documents on file with the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol (AT&T production, Nov. 24, 2021]
1:19 PM ALEXANDER [who is with JONES and SHROYER] to WREN [text][J6CTr]: [Asks “– if POTUS is walking and for her to give you an update every 5 minutes”]
ALSO, next on TL:
1:20 PM National Security Council Chat Log: Mogul in Oval
And, from the ALEX JONES MOVIE:
1:22 PM JONES [at Freedom Plaza?]
[Unsure of TIME] ALEXANDER tweets
[This seems to be from the same/similar location as JONES movie]:
Screenshot of this tweet from 2:38 PM on 1/6/21 here:
[From J6C Hearing]
1:22 PM Secret Service: “…ALL CDU TEAMS/MEMBERS TO RESPOND TO THE COMMAND POST TO DON GEAR AND PREPARE FOR POTENTIAL PROTECTIVE MOVEMENT”
1:25 PM Secret Service: “…PPD IS ADVISING THAT MOGUL IS PLANNING ON HOLDING AT THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THE NEXT APPROXIMATE TWO HOURS, THEN MOVING TO THE CAPITOL.” [ie: approx 3:30 PM]
2:54 PM · Oct 13, 2022]
What STONE was planning for 3:30 PM, at the CAPITOL:
9:12 AM · Feb 14, 2021
I’ve been busy with life and stuff lately and haven’t been around here as much. This morning I had to come by to see harpie put this in the timeline.
As to who “they” are, I would like to hear from someone who heard the audio if it sounded like the first and second “they” had the same referent. That is, could this transcription fit?
They said, “He’s gonna march and they’re gonna wanna keep him close to the beast”
It matters because the second “they” likely refers to the Secret Service/WH staff (remember Ornato was both). Either way, this is an indication (not yet admissible evidence!) of direct WH involvement in a seditious conspiracy.
Very nice to see you, WO! :-)
Yep, welcome home Mr. Ockham!

Following this trial is like watching 3D chess. Looking forward to the day that the Alex Jones connection snaps into place between the PBs and Trump. Thanks Brandi and all of you folks here at Emptywheel.
Roger Stone and Ali Alexander as well.
Is Jack Smith waiting for the resolution of the Proud Boy’s trial before deciding what charges to bring against Trump?
Almost certainly yes, and Smith would be nuts not to see how that goes. Likely are other factors as well.
CapitolHunters says it’s BIGGS [not NORDEAN] who says:
“Flank around this side…Alex is gonna [be] comin’ in, and we all do our shit..”
Did prosecutors get it wrong?
10:10 PM · Mar 7, 2023 [THREAD]
WayBack: [no video] https://web.archive.org/web/20230308124644/https://twitter.com/capitolhunters/status/1633304191169961985
Evidently, as CH says, WaPo got it wrong.
11:08 AM · Mar 7, 2023
AND BIGGS said in the other VIDEO:
“Flank around this side.. we’ll fuckin’ [turn from?].. Alex is gonna [be] comin’ in, and we all do our shit..”
[I couldn’t improve on that transcript. Maybe this is why one of the defense counsel was asking for the jury to get headphones.]
It WAS Nick SMITH for NORDEAN:
9:21 AM · Mar 8, 2023
[Sorry, I’m trying to follow the breadcrumb trail…LOL!]
No apologies, Harpie. It seems to me that you’ve sunk your teeth into something that could be crucial to closing the circle. I only hope there are DOJ investigators who are digging in to this. Who were “they” who were going to keep Trump close to the beast? What communication was going on during this time?
As an aside, it’s pretty amazing and extremely fortunate that Trump’s SS detail actually prevented his going. I don’t understand the limits of their seditious behavior, but I’m grateful for it.
This is where I did the breakdown of the JOE BIGGS MOVIE:
That footage is now “private”. At that time, there were no timestamps between 10:29 AM and 12:47 PM, between [2:19], including [2:40] when Man with a tan coat says: If you watch the video from earlier, Alex JONES was [interrupted] and [3:27], where BIGGS says: go around the side…we have to go all the way…
This is where I broke down the Alex JONES MOVIE:
JONES was at the Ellipse VIP section from 8:40 AM.
The next timestamp is of JONES at 1:22 PM at [I think] FREEDOM PLAZA.
At 1:31 PM [Freedom Plaza] he’s on the phone and says:
They just breached the Capitol [which was not accurate]
and tells SHROYER it was “provocateurs”.
ALEXANDER says “shit of your dreams”
Richard Parloff has something on this:
9:04 AM · Mar 8, 2023
At 11:15 AM, JONES is at the ELLIPSE
during the ONE HOUR pause in festivities caused by TRUMP, who had been scheduled to begin speaking at 11:00 AM, immediately after the fascist movie.
Info on TRUMP’s schedule:
Thank you, Brandi, for providing a thorough context and for the up-to-the minute update on trial proceedings. Thank you for being there “gavel to gavel” bearing witness to the dynamics of the trial.
And best wishes for you and your family.
Good to see you here, Brandi. Thanks for all your hard work and for helping us understand the who, what, why, when and how. Much appreciated.
It’s great to see your coverage continuing here, Brandi. And thanks, Marcy, for making the offer!
Why is it so hard for the MSM to describe Tucker Carlson’s mockumentary of the Jan. 6th attack on the Capitol as “edited?” He has not released the tapes to which McCarthy gave his team: he’s published a carefully edited excerpt, a lying flashback.
At first, I was astonished (I know, I know..) FOX would permit Carlson to do this after the Dominion voting revelations. But then it hit me, Carlson might already be bigger than FOX. If they try to sit on him, he could bolt and take a large share of his audience with him to some further right infotainment outlet. And since we know that the prime directive there isn’t journalism but maintaining market share, it makes all the sense in the world for FOX not to expose itself as powerless to stop him.
Throw them both off the air!
Canada doesn’t put up with FOX bs, so why should we?
Canada also doesn’t have to comply with the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.
How do you think Carlson and Fox News can be legally thrown off the air?
Nope, nope, nope.
There’s only a couple ways a network and/or personality can be “thrown off” a cable network.
By “thrown off” one might mean the network or personality has been proven to be a foreign asset and must label their work as such, ex. RT America (Russia Today).
Or bankrupted by lawsuits, but Dominion won’t be able to claim a large enough financial settlement to do that.
That’s about it. I don’t know where people come up with the idea we can simply ignore the Constitution.
Who do you think you are? People in Canada can perfectly express their views without a US Constitution, thank you very much.
We think we live in the US, not Canada. And the differences between the two come into focus occasionally, and that is fine. Healthy even.
Don’t be obtuse. The point was the U.S. has a specific Constitution amendment barring what a Canadian commenter suggests the U.S. should do.
And good luck with that free speech stuff in Canada. Shall we ask First Nations people how they fare with that?
Fox News is not banned in Canada.
Our constitution has a useless Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Section 2 says we have “(b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication”
Section 33 says “Parliament or the legislature of a province may expressly declare in an Act of Parliament or of the legislature, as the case may be, that the Act or a provision thereof shall operate notwithstanding a provision included in section 2”
Um, FOX news is alive and, well, still in Canada.
You may be thinking of Murdoch’s other channel, Sky News, which was rejected by Canada’s cable carriers a few years ago.
It would be so nice to able to read whatever responses were made to my comment. Can’t you all clean up this format to something ledgible. And, fyi, bzmt, laws can be written and vile conduct can be declared illegal.
Couple of things:
The “responses made to your comment” are perfectly readable. Our “format” is completely “legible”, I have no idea what you are grousing about. I am bmaz not “bzmt”, and, no, laws against whatever you personally consider “vile conduct” cannot necessarily be always easily written so that your pet peeves are “declared illegal”.
Are you reading on mobile?
Otherwise, you should be able to read everything here. You can even make the text bigger.
Laws can be written, sure. But unless you also repeal the 1st Amendment, they will all be unconstitutional as they pertain to this matter. If that’s the route you want to take, then vote Republican.
Just buy more popcorn for this sort of comment.
Yes, Carlson is the only one Murdoch has not thrown under the bus. Interestingly it was him only who McCarthy gave the Jan6 tapes.
Just recently from the Hill: “Rupert Murdoch, owner and co-chairman of Fox Corp., worried to Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott that top hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham “went too far” in endorsing former President Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election, new court filings show.” in email’s released by Dominion.
From NPR: “Asked by a Dominion attorney whether “Fox endorsed at times this false notion of a stolen election,” Murdoch demurred, saying, “Not Fox, no. Not Fox. But maybe Lou Dobbs, maybe Maria [Bartiromo] as commentators.””
From the NYT: “In the cross hairs now is Ms. Scott, who joined the network at its inception in 1996 as a programming assistant and worked her way up to become chief executive in 2018. Media analysts have speculated that she may take the fall; Mr. Murdoch testified in a deposition that executives who knowingly allowed lies to be broadcast “should be reprimanded, maybe got rid of.” But Fox later put out word that she was not in danger.”
I haven’t finished reading the new release yet, but so far I get the impression that Rupert (especially), Keith and Lachlan Murdoch all are doing everything possible to keep Tucker out of the bus’s path. I’m most interested in flares sent up prior to Mike Lindell’s appearance on January 26, 2021 on Carlson’s show, during which Lindell apparently ranted about Dominion without pushback from the supposedly most careful and critical primetime host.
It’s a valid question, gertibird. Does Tucker Carlson really call the shots?
Really appreciate Brandi’s reporting, and Emptywheel for supporting it. Very well done all ’round!

PATTIS is OUTRAGED by what CARLSON said.
Pattis is beclowning himself.
LOL–and not even for the first time this year.
This will give Ron DeSantis and his pet legislature paroxysms of fear, eliciting legislation to criminalize Japanese mice – and any other organism made with the same, two-fathers, technology – and to criminalize teaching about it. Pity that their energy and focus are so harmful to more than mice – who also had no voice in the manner through which they came into being.
