The trial against some Proud Boys was halted the other day. Seems like the Federal government may be in similar trouble like the Bundy trial in Nevada some years ago.
Seems as though the Prosecution has had a confidential informant on the Defense team for almost two years now.
"WASHINGTON — Five Proud Boys accused of inciting the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building asked a judge to put an immediate halt to their trial after learning Wednesday a witness they were preparing to call had been cooperating with government investigators for nearly two years.
In a motion filed Wednesday afternoon, defense attorney Carmen Hernandez, representing Philadelphia Proud Boy Zachary Rehl, said prosecutors had informed the defense after court adjourned for the day of the witness’ status as a confidential human source, or CHS. According to Hernandez’s motion, the witness, who was not identified, had been cooperating with the government since April 2021 through at least January."
