Joseph Randall Biggs, 37, faces charges of corruptly obstructing an official proceeding before Congress, unlawful entry, and disorderly conduct in the attack on the seat of government while lawmakers were certifying Democrat Joe Biden's Nov. 3 election win.
Biggs was released on a $25,000 bond on Wednesday afternoon.
A number of people with ties to the Proud Boys have been charged and more than 100 people overall have been arrested so far, a figure prosecutors expect will grow as the FBI continues to analyze more than 200,000 photos and videos of the Capitol riot.
- Mr. Biggs, what were you doing in the Capitol?
- What did you hope happened in the Capitol?
- Because we want people to know.
- Is there anything you want to say, Mr. Biggs?
JOE BIGGS: Not really.
- How do you feel about Biden being President now?
- It's the way it is.
- I saw you shaking your head "no" a lot inside the courtroom. What was that about?
JOE BIGGS: Oh, that'll be discussed.
- Hey, holla at me on Instagram at stuttergame585 on Instagram, too, man. Yo yo. Stuttergame585 on Instagram.
- They said the Proud Boys were involved in coordinating all this. What do you think about that?
JOE BIGGS: That'll be discussed in court.
- Are you a member of the Proud Boys?
JOE BIGGS: Yes.
- And for you, what does that mean?
JOE BIGGS: Nothing. I mean, it is what it is.
- Were you there at the Capitol?
JOE BIGGS: I think that's pretty obvious.
