The Democrat chair of the House Homeland Security Committee, Bennie Thompson, filed a pointless lawsuit today in federal court accusing former President Trump and Rudy Giuliani of conspiring to incite the riot at the capitol on January 6th, as Reuters reports:
“A Democratic lawmaker filed a lawsuit on Tuesday accusing former President Donald Trump and lawyer Rudolph Giuliani of conspiring to incite a violent riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
The lawsuit was filed by Representative Bennie Thompson, a Democrat who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, in U.S. District Court in Washington.
“The insurrection was the result of a carefully orchestrated plan by Trump, Giuliani and extremist groups like the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, all of whom shared a common goal of employing intimidation, harassment and threats to stop the certification of the Electoral College,” according to a lawyers’ statement.”

This lawsuit is ridiculous and does not stand a snowball’s chance of succeeding as anyone who has read or listened to President Trump’s speech that day can attest to.
Trump did not incite a riot, this is simply another attempt by Democrats to destroy the former President and it shows that they are very, very scared of him and what he can do moving forward.
