Rep. Swalwell sues Trump, Junior, Giuliani and Brooks over Jan. 6 riot

Should be interesting to hear them answer questions under oath in a courtroom.

A House impeachment manager and intelligence subcommittee chairman filed a federal lawsuit Friday against former president Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Rudolph W. Giuliani and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), claiming they should be held liable for injuries and destruction caused by their incitement of the Jan. 6 mob assault on the Capitol.

The lawsuit claims the four violated the Reconstruction-era Ku Klux Klan Act by conspiring to violently interfere in Congress’s constitutional duties and failing to act to stop the mob. It also accuses them of multiple counts of negligence under both federal and D.C. law, aiding and abetting, and infliction of emotional distress.

I hope he filed it in DC and not in Northern California. It will be interesting to see whether a federal court will allow this and will compel the discovery process.
