Two US Capitol Police officers have filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump, accusing him of inciting the deadly 6 January insurrection and saying he was responsible for physical and emotional injuries they suffered as a result.

“This is a complaint for damages by US Capitol Police officers for physical and emotional injuries caused by the defendant Donald Trump’s wrongful conduct inciting a riot on January 6, 2021, by his followers trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election,” the lawsuit said.

Trump has denied responsibility for the rioting, which left five people dead, including a police officer.

His office did not immediately return a call for comment on the lawsuit.

Both officers suffered physical injuries and emotional injuries during the insurrection, according to the complaint.

Hemby suffered neck and back injuries and was sprayed with chemicals, and remains in physical therapy, according to the complaint.

Swalwell’s lawsuit also targets the former president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and his son, Donald Trump Jr, as well as extremist groups associated with the riot, alleging violations of the anti-terrorism act. »
