Dem. Rep Sues Trump for Jan 6, Says it’s in ‘the Country’s Best Interest’

On Thursday, Democrat Representative Barbara Lee appeared on MSNBC’s “Deadline” and argued that her lawsuit against former President Donald Trump is “in the country’s best interest.”

Lee, who is running for U.S. Senate to fill the vacancy that will soon be left by retiring Senator Dianne Feinstein, was discussing the news that the Justice Department said Capitol Police officers and Democratic lawmakers could now sue Trump over the protests at the capitol on January 6, 2021.

I highly doubt that will hold up in a court of law though, considering Trump did not lead the protests and actually told people to be peaceful and go home.

Lee asserted, “In our lawsuit, of course, the essence of it is that President Trump is not immune from the actions he took that day, what he said, what he directed the insurrectionists, those who wanted to perpetuate a coup d’état. It was, an attempted coup on the Capitol, on our democracy, The Proud Boys, The Oath Keepers.

It is important we redress the harm. Once again, we have to try to put on our gas masks. We were told we had to hit the floor. We barely got out of the chambers before they came in.

This was a dangerous moment, not only for individual members of Congress and the plaintiffs in our lawsuit, but it was dangerous in terms of our democracy.”

She continued, “Donald Trump is not above the law. In this lawsuit, we’re waiting now for the D.C. Circuit to make its decision, but it is very important that we talk about redressing the harm that it has done. Not only to us personally but to our democracy.”

Lee added, “We’re going it keep on until we win this lawsuit. I think it is in the country’s best interests to see there are members of Congress and personal capacities who are going to continue this fight until justice is done.”

If they can sue Trump for that, then there is a LONGGGGGG list of things republican lawmakers could sue President Joe Biden for…. like the BLM riots that burned down multiple cities and killed people. The DOJ is creating a very slippery slope if they allow Trump to be sued for Jan 6.
