Second Congressman sues Trump over Capitol riots

Congressman Eric Swalwell of California sued former President Donald Trump in a federal court on Friday over the Capitol riots on January 6.

The attack on the Capitol building was "a direct and foreseeable consequence of the defendants' false and incendiary allegations of fraud and theft, and in direct response to the defendants' express calls for violence," Representative Swalwell's lawsuit alleges.

Last month, Representative Bennie Thompson of Mississippi filed a lawsuit against Trump over his role in the incident that led to the second impeachment of the former president.
