DC US Attorney moves to jail alleged Proud Boys January 6 conspiracy leaders on charges that qualify as “a federal crime of terrorism.” Link to the motion. @USAO_DC @maddowblog

Pages 3 and 4 of 11:

The United States moves for detention pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(e)(3)(C), which
provides a rebuttable presumption in favor of detention for an enumerated list of crimes, including

Destruction of Property in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1361. The United States also seeks detention
pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3142(f)(1)(A), because Destruction of Property, in violation of 18 U.S.C.
§ 1361, is a crime of violence. Moreover, when Destruction of Property is “calculated to influence
or affect the conduct of government by intimidation or coercion,” it also qualifies as a federal
crime of terrorism. See 18 U.S.C. § 2332b(g)(5)(B).
