Joshua Pruitt, the militant of the far-right group Proud Boys who came almost face to face with the leader of the dem senators Chuck Schumer on the day of Donald Trump’s fan assault on the Capitol, was sentenced to four years and seven months for his role in obstructing the certification of the constituency vote, which sanctioned the victory of Joe Biden. He was at the forefront of the crowd that broke our hitherto uninterrupted tradition of a peaceful transition of power, Judge Timothy Kelly commented.

Your plans weren’t limited to fighting Antifa (the anti-fascist movement, ed), the judge continued, explaining that the group had anticipated that he wanted to go to Congress to block the certification of the vote and face agents who had put themselves on his Street. Pruitt pleaded guilty in June. At the time of the attack on the Capitol, she was a rookie waiting to join the organization. To join the Proud Boys, the defendant would have done anything, one of the prosecutors noted. During the assault Pruitt was one of the first to enter the Capitol. And when Schumer’s escort saw him in the building, 4-5 seconds from the dem leader, he changed the evacuation floor and instead of escaping via an elevator he went down a flight of stairs and closed a double door. After the arrest, Pruitt is sworn in to join the Proud Boys on Biden’s inauguration day.
