Four “Tourists” To The U.S. Capitol On Jan. 6 Found Guilty

The four members of the Proud Boys have been found guilty of seditious conspiracy:

Four members of the far-right Proud Boys organization were found guilty Thursday of seditious conspiracy in connection with the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Enrique Tarrio, Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordean, Dominic Pezzola and Zachary Rehl each faced nine counts. All but Pezzola were found guilty on the rare charge of seditious conspiracy under a Civil War-era statute. Tarrio, Biggs, Nordean and Rehl were also found guilty of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding.

Jurors, however, were split on Pezzola, and will continue deliberations:

The jury reached only a partial verdict and remains split on whether Pezzola is guilty of the seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to obstruct charges. U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Kelly has instructed jurors to continue deliberating on multiple outstanding charges.

And what is this tourist accused of and what has he admitted to?

Pezzola — who was caught on video smashing in a window with a Capitol Police shield during the breach, and who admitted to his behavior on the stand — was separately charged with stealing the police shield and found guilty Thursday.

Pezzola was also found guilty of assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers, while the other four defendants were acquitted on that charge.

You know, the stuff your average tourist does when visiting the Capitol storming the Capitol and violently rioting in an effort to stop the certification of a legitimate election outcome.

    So pardon them boys,Joey. No joke! Really mean it. C’mon, man! Be a Lincoln– not an Edsel; follow through on your victory promise:

    Joe Biden vows to ‘unify’ country in victory speech:

    “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify; who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States… It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again, and to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies.”- President-elect Joe Biden, 11/8/2020

    Are you a ‘good Joe,’ Joe? Or just another Dick:

    Nixon Promises to ‘Bring the American People Together’ After ’68 Win

    “I saw many signs in this campaign. Some of them were not friendly. Some were very friendly. But the one that touched me the most was — a teenager held up the sign ‘bring us together.’ And that will be the great objective of this administration, at the outset, to bring the American people together.” – President-elect Richard Nixon, 11/6/ 68
