- Up to a dozen previously undisclosed undercover Metropolitan Police Department officers were embedded in the crowds on Jan. 6 — including one who admitted joining in protester chants to “stop the steal” — according to an April 10 court filing in the Proud Boys seditious-conspiracy trial.
- A motion for mistrial filed by defense attorney Roger Roots said the additional undercover officers bring the number of police, agents, and informants embedded in Jan. 6 crowds to at least 50.
- He had filed an April 5 motion in the case that estimated the number to be 40.
- Roots, who represents Proud Boys defendant Dominic Pezzola, asked U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly to declare a mistrial based on “numerous, repeated and yet-unfolding” instances where exculpatory evidence was withheld by federal prosecutors.
