US Capitol Officers Sue Donald Trump For ‘aiding And Abetting’ Mob During January 6 Riot


Two US Capitol police officers, who say they suffered “physical and emotional injuries” during the January 6 insurrection, are suing former President Donald Trump for inciting the crowd. According to CNN, the two officers said that Trump allegedly “inflamed, encouraged, incited and directed” the violent mob that stormed the Capitol. Officers James Blassingame and Sidney Hemby, who have been with the force for a combined 28 years, said they were injured during the attack, which left dozens of their fellow officers injured too and one dead

In the suit filed in federal court in Washington, the two officers reportedly said that the insurrectionists were spurred on by Trump’s conduct over many months in getting his followers to believe his false allegations that he was about to be forced out of the White House because of massive election fraud.  They added that the mob, which the former president inflamed, encouraged and incited, forced its way over the past the plaintiffs and their fellow officers, pursuing and attacking them. According to the lawsuit, while Hemby claimed that he was crushed against the doors of the Capitol, was sprayed with chemicals and bled from his face, Blassingame, on the other hand, said that he was slammed against a stone column, injuring his head and back.
