The Department of Justice (DOJ) reported that a mid-level Proud Boys member was charged for his part in attacking the citadel of democracy, our Capitol Building complex. The homegrown terrorist was involved in planning the January 6 attack. But there is more.

The man was the first to plead guilty to the charge of alleged conspiracy. Matthew Greene of Syracuse, New York has agreed to work with the DOJ. His charges were “one count of conspiracy and one count of obstruction of an official proceeding.” according to CNN.

The 34-year-old man could still spend 51 months in prison. He also will pay $2000 for his part in damaging the Capitol Building.

Numerous Oath Keepers have been doing the same.

The DOJ said that Greene and two other Oath Keepers breached the police barriers. The Proud Boys’ planners communicated with him via radio. According to the prosecutors:

‘He participated with other rioters, including members of the Proud Boys, in moving additional police barricades.’

During the attack on our Democracy he sent out this message:

‘I’m good, we took the capital.’

He was indicted last April along with Proud Boys members William Pepe and Dominic Pezzola. The latter interfered with the police as they tried to protect the building. Then, after taking one officer’s shield, he used it to break a window in the Capitol to gain entry, followed other members of the enraged mob. Prosecutors contended they intentionally interfered with police officer as part of their plan.
