Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “House Democrat Bennie Thompson Sues Trump, Giuliani Over Capitol Riot” – below is their description.
A Democratic member of Congress sued former President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, claiming they conspired to incite the Jan. 6 Capitol riot in violation of a law enacted to combat the Ku Klux Klan.
Working with the far-right Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, Trump and Giuliani “acted in concert to incite and then carry out” the Capitol insurrection, according to a complaint by Representative Bennie G. Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat. Though he sued in an individual capacity, Thompson chairs the House Homeland Security committee and has already held hearings on the Capitol attack.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington on Tuesday, points to a potential new avenue to hold Trump accountable for the Capitol riot after his Senate acquittal on the House’s “incitement of insurrection” impeachment charge.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said he voted to acquit because he didn’t believe a former president could be constitutionally impeached, excoriated Trump’s conduct in a floor speech on Saturday and said he could still face civil litigation or even criminal prosecution for inciting the riot. “Former presidents are not immune from being held accountable by either one,” the Kentucky Republican said.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
