Trump and Giuliani sued by Democratic congressman over Capitol riot

The Guardian; David Smith

Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, the former president’s personal lawyer, have been accused of conspiring to incite the violent riot at the US Capitol, in a legal action filed under a historic law known as the Ku Klux Klan Act.

The lawsuit was brought on Tuesday by the Democratic congressman Bennie Thompson of Mississippi and the eminent civil rights organisation the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

It comes three days after Trump was acquitted by the US Senate on a charge of inciting the 6 January insurrection, only for the minority leader, Mitch McConnell, who voted to acquit, to point out that presidents are “not immune” to being held accountable by criminal or civil litigation.

The suit alleges that Trump, Giuliani and the extremist groups the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers conspired to incite the attack on the Capitol with the goal of preventing Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election.

It argues that they therefore violated a law often referred to as the Ku Klux Klan Act, passed in 1871 in response to Klan violence and intimidation preventing members of Congress in the Reconstruction south from carrying out their constitutional duties. The NAACP, founded in 1909, says the statute was designed to protect against conspiracies.

Thompson’s suit, which will probably be thrown out of court by a laughing judge, actually could backfire against the Congressional Black Caucus/ himself, and BLM because it would make Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters susceptible to a similar lawsuit over their cries and orders to their followers to “surround, get in their face, etc. and “fight” comments re conservative politicians and citizens.

Time to take the legal fight to these black Marxists and racist fools. They go “legal”, we go “double-down legal on their asses”.

Sue the DNC, anti fa and Burn Loot Murder for all the violence and mayhem they perpetrated against the citizens of Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, St. Louis, DC…

It can be a class action, including multiple wrongful death claims, destruction of property, personal injury, assault…

  1. Trump has a bulletproof solution to all his problems , it’s simple , all he has to do is go on CNN and MSNBC and tell the entire World that he’s transitioning to an African american crippled transexual deaf and dumb lesbian with a speech impediment and the entire planetary left wing MSM will be drooling over him before you can say” Bry Bry Stelter”..

  2. The benefit of what Piglousy and Schumer have done is demonstrate that a non current official can be impeached – so Obumma, and the Clintons now in cross hairs and the list of ex & current officials will be long so Bidets presidency may be known as the Impeachment presidency with bidet the worst president ever which will push our horse into second place as the worst pm ever in NZ history.
