President Trump Formally Served with Nuisance Lawsuit Related to US Capitol Riot by Leftist Bennie Thompson

 

Former President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani were sued in federal court by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) over the January 6 Capitol riot.

Thompson announced he was suing Trump, Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers in his personal capacity, accusing the defendants of conspiracy to incite the riot and violating the Ku Klux Klan Act. The lawsuit, filed by the NAACP, claims Thompson was hindered and impeded in performing his Congressional duties and suffered emotional duress. Thompson is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.

The suit came three days after Trump was acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial over the riot. Thompson cited a Senate floor speech by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) right after the trial blaming Trump for the riot even though he voted to acquit him.

President Trump was formally served with the nuisance lawsuit at his home in Mar-a-Lago.
