Washington, March 6 : Democratic House lawmaker Eric Swalwell, one of the nine impeachment managers, filed a lawsuit accusing former President Donald Trump of inciting the deadly January 6 Capitol riot.
The 65-page civil lawsuit was filed on Friday at the US District Court in Washington, D.C., reports Xinhua news agency.
It accused the former President, his eldest son Donald Trump Jr., lawyer Rudy Giuliani and House Republican Mo Brooks of conspiring to block incumbent President Joe Biden’s election victory, inciting the Capitol riot, aiding and abetting common-law assault, committing bias-related crimes, as well as intentionally inflicting emotional distress and negligence.
“The horrific events of January 6 were a direct and foreseeable consequence of the Defendants’ unlawful actions,” the complaint states.
“As such, the Defendants are responsible for the injury and destruction that followed.” It’s the second lawsuit from a sitting member of Congress accusing Trump for inciting the riot.
