Lawmaker sues Trump for conspiracy to incite US Capitol riot

 

Former President Donald Trump and attorney Rudy Giuliani are being accused of conspiring with the far-right groups Proud Boys and Oath Keepers to incite the January 6 insurrection in a civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court by the Democratic chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee that cites a post-Civil War law designed to combat violence and intimidation by the Ku Klux Klan.
The lawsuit, filed by Mississippi Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson in his personal capacity, is the first civil action filed against the former President related to the attack at the US Capitol and comes days after the Senate acquitted Trump in his impeachment trial.
If it proceeds, it would mean the former President and others would be subject to discovery and depositions, potentially exposing details and evidence that weren't released during the Senate impeachment trial.

    1. Uhh, Duetche Bank fired Trump’s Personal Bank Manager and canceled his Duetch account because of his false Accounting and because his shared Business Partners dumped the Bankruptcy King tRUMP!

    2. @Howard Smith yeah Duetche bank are paragons of truth and fairness … the only bank that rivals them for grift is Wells Fargo …. Trump’s bank manager RESIGNED and Duetche Bank just saw the way the wind apparently was blowing …..watch how fast they come sideling back up to him when this mess is finally put to rest…

    3. @Bishop Blackwell why, it would matter to you … you just wanna believe … you’re a new YouTuber, your account got created very recently, banned a few too many times?

    4. @Robin Ainscough Why do you foreign trolls latch on to account creation date as if it matters or means anything at all at this point? …. maybe youve not noticed -but theres kind of a big suppression campaign going on – it seems all the parties involved in this STEAL are a bit paranoid that they’ll still get their asses handed to them – and they should be…..anger is continuing to build.

    1. @M.E Churche …”statistically it’s highly unlikely a sitting president does not serve a second term.” Ok. So. Since 1976, before trump We have had 7 presidents. Ford was not re-elected in 1976 nor was carter in 1980. Reagan served 2, Bush senior served 1, then clinton 2, GW 2, and Obama 2.

      3 out of 7 served 1 term in the modern era. How is that highly unlikely?

    2. @Alan Adams
      We’ve had 11 single term presidents out of 45. Your math is very wrong. You have a 24.45% chance of losing. We’ve had 8 die, 4 of which assassinated. 3 of the single term president’s replaced said assassinated. 6 of the 11 (these 3 included) promised not to run for reelection, of the 5 remaining failed reelection. I would argue that it’s really 5/45 for a 11.12% of losing.
      We’ve had 3 since WW2 and books have been written as to the terrible policies and world events that resulted in them having lost.
      In so many words – you’re wrong. Nice try.
      I’ll never forget the words “you can make statistics say whatever you want by determining the pool by which their drew.” – read’s the tombstone of that gas-lit strawman you produced.

    3. @Alan Adams
      I’d say the last 28 years is “modern” all which served 2 terms.
      But; if your “modern era” were a stock I’d make the bet the trend continue’s at 2. Statistically not representative of my claim, but you don’t get to change the rules to favor yourself friend.

    1. @B K All I have to say to people like you is this: if you’re going to make dumb arguments, don’t expect to be treated as anything but dumb. Unfair? Not in the slightest, because you are merely regurgitating talking points from right wing outlets and Republicans, as opposed to reasonable thoughts. If you want to join the adults in any discussion, at the very least you should inform yourself on the issues being discussed before regurgitating the garbage you uncritically ate up. Until then, have fun proving to the world that you are a brainwashed ignoramus, since I highly doubt that you’ll bother yourself with doing even a tiny bit of research into impeachment history, or Justice Roberts’ own explanation for WHY he wouldn’t preside over the impeachment.

    2. Obama couldn’t even rock a Tanned Suit to the White House without push back. Now look how far down the Racist Rabbit hole we have fallen

    1. @British Mini well as all you trumpsters y’all kept saying who cares go get another job don’t be so lazy go get another job

  1. Lots of cope in the comment sections.

    They bragged about the corrupt senate hearing acquitting him twice and they seem surprised people are pursuing it in criminal court?

  2. “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by”… until he called them to the “Stop the Steal/Big Lie” murderous sedition riot aka the Lottsa-poor-loser rally. Proud Boys admit that they came at his invitation.

    1. @President Biden A parrot and a sealion walk into a bar. They’re both called “President Biden,” the Youtube commenter.

      And by the way, 45 asked them who to denounce, if he was actually doing his job and read the daily briefings, he would have known that group was on the FBI watch list for nearly two years before he was hounded by two old geriatrics to give him an answer. Dear 45 is strong, he gets bullied into answering a question by the shuffle board team.

    2. @President Biden You are wrong, Chris Wallace asked him to tell them to “stand down”. It was their Dear Leader that told them “stand back and standby”. No one put those words in his mouth. Stand down means to cease offensive actions. Stand back means to back away. They aren’t the same thing. I see why you wish it was fake news.

      From the transcript of the debate
      1:04:23 WALLACE

      Okay, you have repeatedly criticized the Vice President for not specifically calling out antifa and other left-wing groups. But are you willing, tonight, to condemn white supremacists and militia groups? And to say that they need to STAND DOWN and not add to the violence in a number of these cities, as we saw in Kenosha, as we’ve seen in Portland? Are you prepared specifically to do that?

      1:04:46 TRUMP

      Sure, I’m prepared to do it. I would say- I would say, almost everything I see is from the left-wing, not from the right wing-

      1:05:55 WALLACE

      So what do you, what do you say-

      1:04:56 TRUMP

      I’m willing to do anything I want to see peace.

      1:04:57 WALLACE

      Then do it, sir.

      1:04:59 BIDEN

      Say it, do it, say it.

      1:05:00 TRUMP

      You want to call them — What do you want to call them? Give me a name, give me —

      1:05:04 WALLACE

      White supremacists and, white supremacists and right-wing —

      1:05:07 BIDEN

      The Proud Boys.

      1:05:07 TRUMP

      PROUD BOYS, STAND BACK AND STAND BY. But I’ll tell you what, I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about antifa and the left because this is not a right-wing problem. This is a left-wing problem

    3. @Suomy Nona Exactly stand back and stand by is the same thing as saying stand down. Who is really grasping at straws here? Even if said stand down they would say look he’s commanding them. It was a set up question. I asked you to watch it not read it. If you watch it you can see how they gang up on him to say it and they smile after he says it and it was a totally set up. Did they ask Biden to tell Antifa to stand down? Oh I forgot Antifa is an idea according to Biden.

    1. Millions if you count releasing the virus in China you know he had something to do with wuhan,500 k just in the USA

  3. “…A lower standard of evidence…” Yeah, the evidence wasn’t the issue last time. Hopefully this will have a higher standard of jury.

    1. Trump never should have gotten to be president in the first place, if only the voters who voted for him were aware of the evidence indicating he was a liar, womanizer, fraud, bankrupt, income tax evading, lying failure. But they cannot be blamed for him turning into a poor loser who tried to subvert our democratic institutions. No one would have thought he was that evil.

    2. @Ilya Ignatov Were you in a coma from January 6th on? Was the murder of a policeman doctored? How about using fake flags and our national flag as weapons? How about his claim they should “Stop the steal” by desecrating our Capitol and threatening lives of Congressmen and Senators? Trump was ecstatic while watching all this on television.

    3. Can anybody provide just 1 factual bit of evidence from a legitimate investigation that the house managers presented .. don’t worry I will wait or to just save time I will tell you .. none not one bit was presented it was all media reports and third hand hearsay and they still had to doctor the evidence they did provide it was an embarrassment

    4. @Vernon France that officer died a month ago where is the autopsy report ?? We know it wasn’t a fire extinguisher blow as now officials are saying bearspray killed him .. he has been cremated how do they not know the cause of death

  4. Need to sue many of the GOPers too! Absolutely ridiculous these criminals are getting away with this attempted coup!

  5. The Republican Party has shown us, definitively they can’t be counted on to uphold justice, or respect the oath they took. Unprincipled cowards!

  6. When Trump finally did tweet them to stop they answered back with “Trump wants us to stop and go home. Trump said he loves us. “
