Reuters: Right-Wing Leader Is Known Snitch

Court records have revealed the leader of a militant radical right group known as "The Proud Boys" to be a former prolific informant.

Enrique Tarrio, who was recently arrested on gun charges and then banned from Washington DC, seems to have a lot of explaining to do to his extremist membership.

According to Reuters News Service, Enrique was an enthusiastic snitch after his arrest in 2012 on fraud charges. The right-wing leader eventually pleaded guilty to the fraud charges and asked for a lesser sentence in consideration for turning in other alleged criminals.

The group convicted felon Tarrio leads played a prominent role in the January 6th insurgency against the United States of America.

There has been rampant investigation and speculation about how the Proud Boys and similar groups are funded. It is of note that the type of fraud for which Tarrio was arrested can be lucrative. Lucrative, of course, until one is arrested.

Reuters dug up dirt on Enrique and you could read their full account by clicking here.
