Enrique Tarrio, former Proud Boys chairman, has been sentenced to 22 years for “seditious conspiracy” related to the Jan. 6 Capitol raid.

The group played a significant role in the attack, with Tarrio creating a special group within the organization and urging members on during the assault.

According to the Justice Department, Tarrio’s Ministry of Self Defense, “established a chain of command, chose a time and place for their attack, and intentionally recruited others who would follow their top-down leadership and who were prepared to engage in physical violence if necessary.”

Filmmaker Christoffer Guldbrandsen said, “Stone had been busy, launching ‘Stop the Steal’ and mobilizing Trump allies and had just gotten off the phone with General Flynn, when Enrique Tarrio, the national leader of the Proud Boys, called. Tarrio’s voice was inaudible, but Stone is heard telling him that he is still waiting for an update from the campaign — before he says he needs to talk without the camera rolling.”

“Tarrio was a fixture around Stone — helping him out, working with him on his social media, and even organizing a fundraiser for Stone just before his trial,” said Guldbrandsen.

“Stone was in close contact with Tarrio right up until the attack on Jan. 6 and after via encrypted apps,” he continued.

A documentary reveals Stone’s connections to Tarrio and the Proud Boys, emphasizing the group’s close link to the Trump campaign.

Guldbrandsen said “A Storm Foretold” is a documentary that “demonstrates that the most violent group at the forefront of the attack on the U.S. Capitol was closely connected to the Trump campaign through Roger Stone, Donald Trump’s friend and ally for more than 30 years.”
