DOJ ‘Asked Me to Lie About President Trump’ for Indicting Him: Proud Boys’ Enrique Tarrio

Henry “Enrique” Tarrio Jr., former chairman of the Proud Boys who was recently sentenced to prison, claimed that federal authorities allegedly tried to coerce him into signing a false statement implicating former President Donald Trump in the Capitol breach incident.

Mr. Tarrio, accused of seditious conspiracy to attack the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison on Sept. 5. In a subsequent interview with media outlet Gateway Pundit, Mr. Tarrio said that prosecutors from the Department of Justice (DOJ) wanted him to sign a statement that proved “through several degrees of separation and connections, Tarrio had communicated with Trump regarding ‘plans’ for January 6.”

“They asked me to lie about President Trump in order to indict him,” he said. “I told them to pound sand, and because I refused to lie about President Trump, it cost me twenty-two years of my life.”

“The truth is, I could have been home,” said Mr. Tarrio. “I could have been home a long time ago. I could be in my warm […]bed right now, laughing at the world, without a problem … and all I had to do in order to do that was lie about Trump. All I had to do was confirm a lie.”

According to Mr. Tarrio, the DOJ allegedly approached him with the cooperation deal around October last year, before Jack Smith was appointed as a Special Counsel to investigate President Trump.

“Everything they wanted me to say is fabricated,” he said. “This is how they are going to try to present evidence for Trump’s trial … Find a bunch of people that do not want to go to jail to make up a story just to avoid jail time.”

“I want to be unequivocally clear—I have no connection to President Trump or anyone in his family whatsoever. The connection simply just does not exist and never did.”

Speaking about President Trump’s Jan. 6 indictment, Mr. Tarrio pointed out that authorities have not connected the former president with the Jan. 6 protestors. Instead, they are claiming that President Trump “obstructed an official proceeding by doing certain things,” he said.

“So they haven’t connected Trump to the protest—to what happened at the Capitol that day. How nice, how beautiful would it be, to also have him connected to a person that they supposedly say coordinated the whole thing, right?,” Mr. Tarrio said.

“It would be fantastic for their case. It would be an emotional pull. It technically can get him for seditious conspiracy at that point … if they have a connection, they can get him for seditious conspiracy—which might take him off the ballot in all 50 states.

Ted Cruz Predicts Most ‘Deadly’ Coronavirus Variant Ahead of Election: The ‘Election Variant’

Coronavirus restrictions could come roaring back as Election Day draws closer, as Sen. Ted Cruz warned the most “deadly” coronavirus variant could emerge a year from now, ahead of the election: The “election variant.”

“Look, this is utterly absurd, mask mandates are wrong and for the left this has become, it’s a combination of a number of things,” Cruz said during an episode of his podcast, Verdict.

“Number one, it’s an article of faith. Number two, it’s a virtue signal. It shows just how self-righteous they think they are,” he said, noting that he recently witnessed a “very prominent Democrat Senator” walking the halls of the Capitol with an N95 mask on alongside a staffer.

Further, Cruz said these rules are about “controlling people, whether it’s mask mandates, whether it’s vaccine mandates, whether it’s having the 437th booster. Enough is enough is enough,” he said, warning that the left’s scheme is only going to become more apparent as the election draws closer.

“By the way, a year from now we are going to see the most deadly COVID variant ever seen: the ‘election variant,’ and before the election they’re going to need to shut everything down because they want to have mail-in balloting for everyone because they think it helps elect Democrats,” Cruz predicted.
