Former President Trump and several of his allies are being sued by Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell.
Swalwell tweeted “Today, I filed a civil claim against Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Rudolph Giuliani, and Rep. Mo Brooks for inciting an attack against the Capitol that terrorized lawmakers and prevented us from certifying the votes of the American people. ”
Per the Hill “The 65-page complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., accuses Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani of inciting the riot and violating a number of federal and D.C. laws.”
The complaint states “The horrific events of January 6 were a direct and foreseeable consequence of the Defendants’ unlawful actions. As such, the Defendants are responsible for the injury and destruction that followed.”
Rep. Mo Brooks called Swalwell’s lawsuit “frivolous” and said in a statement “under no circumstances will Swalwell, or any other Socialist, stop me from fighting for America.
