"It is the first guilty plea among any defendants in the major Capitol riot conspiracy cases and is a significant development as investigators continue to pursue leads on extremist groups that they believe planned for an armed attack to help then-President Donald Trump and stop Congress from certifying the 2020 election.

Meet the internet sleuths tracking down the January 6 insurrectionists


Young agreed to cooperate with federal investigators and cut a deal to plead guilty to two felony counts -- conspiracy and obstruction of an official proceeding. He could face a likely sentence of more than five years in prison, according to estimates read at his plea hearing on Wednesday. He has also agreed to pay $2,000 in restitution for damage done to the Capitol building.

His plea deal factors in that the conspiracy involved extensive planning in scope and preparation, a major coup for prosecutors to secure as they continue to investigate the Oath Keepers stationing guns around the Capitol and coordinating their movements to attack Congress.

Prosecutors are dropping the aiding and abetting charges Young faces, as well as a charge he faced for deleting his Facebook account on January 8."

This is going to be going on for a while.

Yeah... we can expect EVERY ONE OF THEM TO PLEAD. What choice do they have when a corrupt government with endless resources is coming after them? Anyone still referring to 1/6 as an INSURRECTION is a lying sack of shit and I hope they suffer for it in the future.
By continually pushing that lie in media they are intentionally baiting the idiots on the Left to hate their neighbors and to believe these average Americans somehow tried to take over the nation. Anyone who actually believes that is too damned stupid to live.
This won't be the end of it either. They'll keep this alive, stoking hate, and then when citizens vent their anger online, they'll be selectively gathered and charged as some kind of "domestic terrorist". This is just beginning and as it ramps up we will eventually see respect for ALL law enforcement be lost. These fools seem to think they are the only angry Americans out there. It doesn't even occur to the dimwits that their neighbors are JUST as hard-headed and capable of resisting as they think they are. Spoiler alert - THIS ENDS BADLY for all of us.

No insurrection charges?

Conspiracy and obstruction of an official proceeding is hardly an "insurrection." They put the screws to him and he copped a plea.

So much for the big "insurrection" of Jan. 6. :laughing0301:

The same thing that happened to those associates of President Trump, I might add. None of them really did anything.

If I had a neighbor who participated in the coup attempt, he would deserve to be hated.

Another win for the good guys.
