Proving that the 1/6 attack on the capitol was a conspiracy of people to overthrow the election. Send them all to prison. But there's always Hunter Biden's laptop.
Proud Boy leader pleads guilty to Jan. 6 conspiracy, agrees to cooperate with DOJ
Charles Donohoe, the leader of a North Carolina Proud Boys chapter, has pleaded guilty to conspiracy and agreed to cooperate with the federal investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.
Charles Donohoe entered his plea at a virtual hearing in federal court in Washington, D.C. The 34-year-old is one of six senior Proud Boys, including the group's chairman, to be charged with conspiring to obstruct Congress' certification of Joe Biden's election victory.
The case against the Proud Boys leaders is one of the highest-profile prosecutions to emerge from the Justice Department's probe into the Capitol riot. Donohoe's cooperation with investigators, as outlined in his plea deal, could significantly boost prosecutors' case against the remaining defendants and possibly spur others to cut their own agreements and cooperate.
Under the deal, Donohoe pleaded guilty to conspiring to obstruct an official proceeding, and assaulting, resisting or impeding an officer. The government agreed to drop the remaining counts against him in the indictment.
At Friday's hearing, Judge Timothy Kelly asked Donohoe how he pleaded to the two specified counts. In both instances, Donohoe calmly replied with a single word: "Guilty."
