“Eric Swalwell sues Trump and allies for violating civil rights with Jan. 6 incitement”


A Democratic congressman filed a lawsuit against former President Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Mo Brooks (R-S.C.) on Thursday alleging that they and others are “responsible for the injury and destruction” of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Why it matters: The federal lawsuit filed on behalf of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who served as one of the House’s impeachment managers, adds to the mounting legal exposure Trump has found himself facing since leaving office.
