Two leaders of the right-wing Proud Boys organization had their bail revoked on Monday after a federal judge said new evidence presented by prosecutors detailed their leadership roles in the Jan. 6 attack on Congress.

Politico reported that Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump appointee, revoked bail for Ethan Nordean and Joseph Biggs, contending the new evidence showed the two men had organized members of their group who later participated in the riot that overtook the U.S. Capitol.

"The defendants stand charged with seeking to steal one of the crown jewels of our country, in a sense, by interfering with the peaceful transfer of power," said the judge, according to Politico. "It's no exaggeration to say the rule of law and ... in the end, the existence of our constitutional republic is threatened by it."

The judge's ruling in D.C. federal court reportedly came in response to evidence that Nordean and Biggs had leadership roles in the Proud Boys that expanded following the arrest of Enrique Tarrio, the organization's de facto leader, in the days leading up to Jan. 6.

Nordean, according to prosecutors, helped create the group's tactical strategy for the day of the riot and participated in efforts to hide the group's text chats from law enforcement.

3. This just proves how uber-crafty and dangerous ANTIFA really are ...

Clandestinely infiltrating the Proud Boys and working their way to the top of the ranks so they can someday make the group look bad by directing a hostile takeover of the government to keep Trump in power.

Obviously, right?
