Taking on the Proud Boys (w/ AG Racine)
The Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers are now central to the investigations into the events of Jan. 6th. More than thirty Proud Boys have been indicted by the Justice Department for the attack on the US Capitol. And just this week, a Federal Judge overseeing many of those cases, upheld the department's position that the defendants can be charged with obstruction of an official proceeding. Meaning, they can be sentenced to lengthy prison terms of up to twenty years. As this situation intensifies, DC's AG Karl Racine is taking another route. He's filed a civil suit against the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers over the events, calling the attack, "a coordinated attack of domestic terrorism." AG Racine joins us to discuss.
