The government’s attempt to frame the Proud Boys falls apart as their star witness lies on the stand and also reveals that there never was a conspiracy to overthrow the government. The case against Proud Boys, Enrique Tarrio, Ethan Nordean, Joseph Biggs, Zachary Rehl, and Dominic Pezzola is falling apart faster than Joe Biden’s brain. The prosecution’s star witness, Jeremy Bertino, obviously cut a deal on gun charges from 2004. He was facing 10 years on weapons charges.
The Department of Justice alleges leaders of the Proud Boys conspired to violently overthrow the government, including Tarrio who never even went to Washington, but is a highly valued target of the corrupt DOJ and equally corrupt Merrick Garland. Neither Tarrio, who was never in Washington or Joe Biggs committed any act of violence on January 6th. The only defendant that was seen acting violently is Pezzolla who banged on a window, hardly a major offense, but whom the prosecutors want to throw in prison for over 20 years.
The prosecution claims that these proud Boys committed an act as heinous as 911 or Pearl Harbor. They gathered a ton of evidence, including 500,000 encrypted messages, but found absolutely no evidence that an insurrection was even mentioned let alone planned.
According to the Department of Justice:
“On Jan. 6, 2021, the defendants directed, mobilized, and led members of the crowd onto the Capitol grounds and into the Capitol, leading to dismantlFinterFng of metal barricades, destruction of property, breaching of the Capitol building, and assaults on law enforcement. During and after the attack, Tarrio and his co-defendants claimed credit for what had happened on social media and in an encrypted chat room.”
Despite pleading guilty to seditious conspiracy, the government’s key witness, Bertino, insisted throughout a five-day cross-examination that there was no plan; the Proud Boys never conspired to do anything illegal on January 6 and never devised a strategy to stop lawmakers from certifying the results of the election.
(Author’s note: Bertino had to plead guilty as part of his plea bargain in order to give his testimony as credible)
After scouring through all the evidence, defense attorneys confirmed Tarrio’s only plan on January 6 was to deliver a speech on stage for Trump, but he instead stayed home. When pressed about Tarrio’s plans for January 6, Bertino once again insisted he and Tarrio never discussed any plan and he was not aware Tarrio was invited to speak.
HASSAN: Enrique never discussed with you any plan for Jan. 6, correct?
BERTINO: Uh. Never,
HASSAN: Well, he spoke to you about speaking at stages for Trump.. You weren’t aware that Blanca Garcia [Latinos for Trump] gave Tarrio a VIP pass to speak on stage on January 6?
BERTINO: I was not.
HASSAN: You didn’t know what was going on subsequent to speaking at the stage?
BERTINO: Correct. I didn’t know what the plan was.
Bertino would be languishing in solitary confinement and facing at least 50 years in prison, including a statutory maximum of 20 years for seditious conspiracy, along with the members of the Proud Boys he previously called friends had he not cooperated with the government.
Norm Pattis, the attorney representing decorated Army veteran Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs slammed Bertino during cross-examination for repeatedly lying under oath and “betraying men who went to the Capitol to protest” in exchange for a lighter sentence while admitting there was no seditious plan:
PATTIS: Who elected you to represent the American people?
PATTIS: You thought you’d have to stop a coup?
BERTINO: I don’t think anybody ever specifically said it like that.
PATTIS: That’s something you made up?
BERTINO: We came to Washington to take the country back from the crooked politicians.
PATTIS: What the hell does that mean?
BERTINO: It means exactly what I said
PATTIS: It doesn’t mean anything. Which one of you geniuses was going to take over that part of the country? Who would be the Attorney General? Secretary of Commerce? Department of Transportation?
BERTINO: The goal was to stop the steal. But I didnt have the plan.
PATTIS: What’s a fair sentence for you in your case for what you’ve done?
BERTINO: That’s not up for me to decide that’s up for the judge to decide. I just want a fair sentence.
PATTIS: The truth doesn’t change from day to day?
BERTIONO: I don’t think so
PATTIS: But many times you spoke to government it changed. It depends on what you need?
BERTINO: It just changed with what I was willing to come forward with
PATTIS: And to get what you want, you were willing to betray men who went to the Capitol to protest because they didn’t go far enough…to satisfy you?
BERTINO: I wouldn’t say that.
PATTIS: And had you not been at home doped up on oxys and 150 staples in your chest you would have been there?
Bertino said that he decided to stab Tarrio in the back after an FBI agent told him that Tarrio wrote the “1776 Returns” document. That document was actually written by the FBI itself in an attempt to frame the Proud Boys.
According to a Motion submitted this past Friday by a Proud Boys attorney, it appears the Government itself is the author of the mysterious “1776 Returns”. The 1776 Returns is the title of a document that outlined strategic plans for the takeover of US government buildings on January 6, 2021.
The mysterious document was sent unsolicited to Proud Boy Chairman Enrique Tarrio’s Telegram right before January 6th by a “love interest” named Erika Flores.
It has been revealed that Flores reportedly testified to the January 6th Committee that A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL was the author of the entirety of the “1776 Returns” and that this FBI and CIA member or associate asked her to share it with Tarrio!
