An alleged member of the ultra-right Three Percenter militia movement said he was manipulated into participating in the Capitol riot by Yale secret society “Skull and Bones” and other groups he said were covertly acting for the government.

Allen Hostetter, who is among the handful of rioters facing more serious conspiracy charges over the Jan. 6 siege, made the outlandish claims in a Monday filing in federal court in Washington asking the judge to dismiss the charges against him. He is representing himself in the case.
