Seattle-based Proud Boys leader indicted in Capitol attack

Another Proud Boys leader has been indicted in connection with the Washington Capitol riots, while federal authorities continue to investigate her links to the fatal attack.

Ethan Nordin, who calls himself the “bailiff” of the Proud Boys office in Seattle, was accused of obstructing the work of Congress, aiding and abetting the commission of a crime, and entering forbidden territory as part of a crowd that broke into the Capitol building.

Nordin, also known as Rufio Panman, is one of several members of the organization who have been indicted.

Meanwhile, the government of Canada has listed Proud Boys as a terrorist organization, announced by Secretary of Public Security Bill Blair.

“Canada will not tolerate acts of violence with an ideological, religious or political background,” Blair said.

Canada was the first country to make this decision for Proud Boys.
