In a newly filed statement of offense, prosecutors said that Proud Boys leader Charles Donohoe — who took a plea deal earlier today — “understood that the purpose of the rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, was to stop the certification of the Electoral College vote,” the Washington Post reports.
Key passage: “Donohoe was aware that members of MOSD leadership were discussing the possibility of storming the Capitol. Donohoe believed that storming the Capitol would achieve the group’s goal of stopping the government from carrying out the transfer of presidential power. Donohoe understood that storming the Capitol would be illegal.”
Donohoe has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.Save to Favorites
