Eric Swalwell Files Lawsuit Against Trump, Giuliani, And Trump Jr. Over Capitol Siege

Rep. Eric Swalwell, the guy who had an affair with a Chinese spy while also serving on the House Intelligence Committee, is filing a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump, his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, Rep. Mo Brooks, and his son Donald Trump Jr., claiming that all four of these individuals were responsible for the riot and siege of the Capitol building back in January.

Swalwell alleges that the defendants pushed unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 election was stolen through voter fraud and that they then engaged in “conspiracy to violate civil rights,” and “incitement to riot,” and, of course, domestic terrorism.

The suit was filed in a federal court located in Washington, D.C.

“The peaceful transfer of power is a sacrament of American democracy. Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., his advisor Rudy Giuliani, and Congressman Mo Brooks, together with many others, defiled that sacrament through a campaign of lies and incendiary rhetoric, which led to the sacking of the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021,” the lawsuit goes on to say.

“Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election; he was unwilling to accept defeat. Trump lied to his followers, telling them that the certification of Joe Biden’s election was a “coup” and that their country was being stolen from them,” the lawsuit continues. “The Defendants filed frivolous lawsuits, all of which failed. The Defendants tried to intimidate state officials, none of whom caved to the pressure. Out of options and out of time, the Defendants called their supporters to Washington, D.C. on the day Congress met to certify Joe Biden’s win, telling them to ‘Stop the Steal’ and ‘be wild.'”

According to the lawsuit, Swalwell seeks monetary damages “in an amount to be determined at trial” and to mandate “written notice” from the defendants if they organize a future “significant election or election certification activity” with more than 50 people.

Swalwell’s suit is the second to be brought against the former president, following the Senate acquitting Trump on an impeachment charge of inciting insurrection in connection to the siege of Congress, which disrupted lawmakers as they affirmed President Biden’s electoral victory. On Feb. 16, Rep. Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, filed a civil suit against Trump, alleging the right-wing groups the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers acted in cahoots with both Trump and Giuliani to commence violence in early January.

Swalwell’s lawsuit accused the four defendants of inflicting emotional distress on the congressman when he was present in the Capitol during the siege.

“[Swalwell] watched as Capitol Police officers drew their weapons, barricaded entrances, and ordered the Plaintiff and other members of Congress to seek shelter, put on gas masks, and take cover in case there was gunfire. The Plaintiff prepared himself for possible hand-to-hand combat as he took off his jacket and tie and searched for makeshift instruments of self-defense,” the suit says.

“As the Plaintiff watched this horror unfold, he texted with his wife in what he felt could be his last moments, telling her ‘I love you very much. And our babies.’ As a result of this, the Plaintiff suffered severe emotional distress,” it adds.

As of now, none of the four defendants have responded to the lawsuit.

Folks, this is a desperate attempt by a man who is a total moral failure to try and look like he’s a big shot doing big things to uphold justice in the land, an operation designed to make him look like a hero of the people.

He’s nothing of the sort.

In fact, this is the same guy who likely handed over intelligence to a foreign spy he was having sex with due to his own stupidity and negligence. This man shouldn’t even be allowed to continue serving in Congress.
