(PatrioticPost.com)- A recent report shows it came to light that a witness in the prosecution of the Proud Boys had been a government informant in the past.
Federal prosecutors in the sedition case against Proud Boys members Dominic Pezzola, Enrique Tarrio, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl, and Ethan Nordean for their alleged involvement in the riot on January 6, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol, reportedly made the announcement.
Reports show Carmen Hernandez, Rehl’s lawyer, asked for a delay in the trial so that these concerns could be addressed, and the trial was reportedly called off last Thursday morning.
The week’s news comes as a trial begins in one of the Department of Justice’s most prominent Capitol riot cases.
The Proud Boys’ legal team has consistently raised similar arguments about federal informants throughout the trials.
In related Proud Boys trial news, it was reported that on January 5, 2021, the leader of the Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, met briefly with the leader of the Oath Keepers, Stewart Rhodes, in a parking garage. Tarrio was driven to the meeting by an operative of the FBI.
Gateway Pundit reports that the FBI used Ken Lizardo as an informant during that time. And now he’s refusing to provide testimony in the Proud Boys trial. They obviously can’t tell the jury that the witness is refusing to testify because he is, in appearance, an alleged FBI agent.
On the evening of January 5, Rhodes and Tarrio had their initial meeting in a parking garage but only spoke for a few minutes. Stewart Rhodes elaborated on this gathering in an earlier interview with The Gateway Pundit.
It is known that Tarrio wasn’t in Washington, DC, on January 6th.
The report reveals that on January 6, journalist Julie Kelly publicly identified FBI informant Ken Lizardo in a string of tweets. The feds may not want Lizardo to testify as he may reveal the FBI’s alleged massive operation.
