The founder of the Hawaii Proud Boys chapter and a Texas man who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and posed for a picture in front a door on which one of them had written “Murder the Media” each pleaded guilty Friday to a felony charge in connection with the riot.

Nicholas Ochs is the founder of the far-right extremist group’s Hawaii chapter and a onetime Republican state House candidate.

He and Nicholas DeCarlo of Fort Worth, Texas, admitted in federal court to obstructing the congressional certification of President Joe Biden’s victory.

The government says the men shared a social media channel called “Murder the Media” and initially claimed to be working as journalists on Jan. 6.
