Trump asks DC judge to toss out Swalwell’s lawsuit against him, citing ‘total immunity’

In the wake of the tragic events of Jan. 6 in the nation’s capital, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), in what appeared to be a desperate attempt for attention, filed suit against former President Donald Trump in which he sought monetary damages for the “emotional distress” Swalwell experienced after the riots.

According to the Washington Examiner, attorney Jesse Binnall, who represents Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., moved this week to have Swalwell’s lawsuit tossed out, arguing that the California Democrat’s lawsuit runs “afoul of well-established, important, constitutional doctrines.”

“Despite his pledge to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, Mr. Swalwell comes to this Court directly attacking First Amendment doctrines which lie at the heart of the uniquely American traditions of free speech, free assembly, and freedom to petition the government without fear of reprisal,” Trump’s motion read, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

According to The Hill, Swalwell filed the complaint in March, writing that “The horrific events of January 6 were a direct and foreseeable consequence of the Defendants’ unlawful actions,”, adding “As such, the Defendants are responsible for the injury and destruction that followed.”

“As the Plaintiff watched this horror unfold, he texted with his wife in what he felt could be his last moments, telling her ‘I love you very much. And our babies.’ As a result of this, the Plaintiff suffered severe emotional distress,” Swalwell’s filing read.

On Monday, Trump claimed argued in his 49-page court filing to dismiss the lawsuit that he has “absolute immunity” from everything Swalwell claimed he was responsible for.

In addition to Trump Jr., Swalwell also filed suit against Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) and Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, both of whom spoke at the pro-Trump rally that occurred shortly before the violent riots began at the Capitol.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) was the first Democrat to file a lawsuit for similar reasons against Trump but attempted to argue in his case that extreme right-wing groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers colluded with Trump and his associates to commit violence on that day, though there currently exists zero proof of such claims.

Swalwell would probably be better served to let this one go and focus on staying out of legal hot water for being caught sleeping with a Chinese spy, which would seem like a better use of his time and money.

  6. Yes he sure does. But he sure like to bang Chinese Spy B****es and lay out secrets that the US has. He is nothing more then a punk like the rest of the DEMS

  7. Law in this country depends on who appointed the wacko judge to the bench. Any of the o-abysmal’s, bidens, clinton and many of the bush judges should be disbarred.

  8. No weapons no insurrection. No attempt to establish a new government as the “autonomous zones” do no insurrection. Just a stupid riot. Swalwell should be dismissed, exiled to China, or to be disrespectful to Peking.
    And Taiwan is a country, John Cena. I think the communists are going to try to take it in the next couple of years since Barak and Joe let Putin take the Crimea without serious objection.

  9. Why is it, the democrats can file charges against President Trump when they are the ones committing all the crimes I am so tired of the democrats breaking all the rules, lying about Trump and nothing is happening to them no charges, no media attention from the left media. they already had a fixed election & won!! President Trump did nothing wrong except work for the US the American People which the democrats did nothing to help us. Biden is destroying our country along with Pelosi & her goonies. Something has to be done, Can’t the United States Supreme Court do something about it?

  10. We are Praying for President Donald J Trump. Truth will prevail and all evil will be dealt wuth

  11. So long as the Marxist regime holds there sickle to our throats & their hammer to our heads, none of them will never be convicted of anything more than a late fee on a Hustler magazine subscription.

  12. EXACTLY RIGHT!! All their bribes and pay-offs could end with Trump in charge!! (that applies to BOTH sides). NO wonder they’re threatened – Imagine IF they ACTUALLY had to work on behalf of the citizens of the U.S.!!!

    1. All the Democrats cry like babies that’s why they are known as the cry baby party. There is not one of them smart enough to pound sand in a rat hole.

    Hey SWALWELL, Let me QUOTE the GREATEST PRESIDENT in MY LIFE TIME ” If you can’t stand the HEAT in the kitchen GET OUT ”
    – HARRY S. TRUMAN – VOTE ALL RED SAVE AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. That’s what I want to know as well. When will Swalwell face the music for his treasonous activities.

  15. When will Eric Swalwell be charged with colluding with a Chinese spy as well as sleeping with her? It is a well-established fact that he did these things.
