(Worthy News) – An attorney for former President Donald Trump on Monday asked a D.C. federal judge to dismiss a trio of lawsuits filed by Democratic lawmakers and two Capitol Police officers who claim Mr. Trump incited the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot.
Attorney Jesse Binnall told U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta that the former president has “absolute immunity” from the suits which claim his speech at the “Save America” rally on Jan. 6 last year instigated the riot that followed.
