Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, one of the lead organizers of the Capitol protest and a top “opposition” leader who made headlines for the past two years, was a prolific informant for the FBI and local law enforcement for years, according to a court transcript obtained by Reuters. Tarrio was reportedly arrested in 2012 and pleaded guilty in a fraud case related to the relabeling and sale of stolen diabetes test kits. The prosecutor in the case said Tarrio’s information had led to the prosecution of 13 people on federal charges in two separate cases. After promoting the storming of the Capitol, Tarrio was arrested before it happened did not take part in it. However, at least five Proud Boys members have been charged for doing so. The FBI has a long record of orchestrating terrorist plots which then easily can be thwarted just in time to prevent them, thus, creating the impression that there are terrorist plots everywhere. In this case, the “storming” incident is serving as an excuse to label everyone who opposes the Left as “domestic terrorists.” -GEG

Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, one of the lead organizers of the Capitol protest and a top “opposition” leader who made headlines for the past two years, was a “prolific” informant for the FBI and local law enforcement for years, according to a court transcript obtained by Reuters.

From Reuters, “Exclusive: Proud Boys leader was ‘prolific’ informer for law enforcement”:

Enrique Tarrio, the leader of the Proud Boys extremist group, has a past as an informer for federal and local law enforcement, repeatedly working undercover for investigators after he was arrested in 2012, according to a former prosecutor and a transcript of a 2014 federal court proceeding obtained by Reuters.

In the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

Tarrio, in an interview with Reuters Tuesday, denied working undercover or cooperating in cases against others. “I don’t know any of this,” he said, when asked about the transcript. “I don’t recall any of this.”

He doesn’t remember being an informant for multiple years. Very believable.

Law-enforcement officials and the court transcript contradict Tarrio’s denial. In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio’s case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that “he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes.”

[…] The records uncovered by Reuters are startling because they show that a leader of a far-right group now under intense scrutiny by law enforcement was previously an active collaborator with criminal investigators.

It’s not that startling.

Don’t believe MSM or any news at face value. In a situation like this, it serves the powers that be to demonize and cause division of the proud boys. Claiming one is a snitch serves they purpose, and it doesn’t even have to be true.

PLease help me understand how Ed Griffin, the Yoda of truth telling puts a timely and strategic article from a globalist outlet like Reuters ahead of Enrique’s (and the Proud Boys) actual record?
