Incitement to Riot

This has been floating around:

So, is it true?  The Wayback Machine shows a New York Times article showing a timeline:

As the morning arrives, hundreds assemble on the Capitol lawn, more than a mile away from where Trump will soon speak near the White House. Among them are the Proud Boys, a far-right group, identifiable here by their orange hats.

11:50 a.m. East side of Capitol 

Here's a still working direct link.  So before Trump started speaking!   That article includes video showing rioters arriving at the Capitol at 12:49.  That's a half hour walk, and Trump spoke until 1:11.

UPDATE: I am told Proud Boys denies that was them in the picture.  Whoever it was, the rioters were ready before Trump spoke.
