DOJ won't defend Republican lawmaker in Capitol riot lawsuit

Reuters July 28, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/u-s-justice-dept-won-t-defend-republican-lawmaker-in-capitol-riot-lawsuit/

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The U.S. Justice Department in a court filing on Tuesday declined to defend Republican congressman Mo Brooks in a lawsuit that alleges he conspired to instigate the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Brooks had asked the Justice Department consider him covered by the Westfall Act, which protects federal employees from being sued for actions taken as part of their jobs, concerning the lawsuit brought by Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell.

"Inciting or conspiring to foment a violent attack on the United States Congress is not within the scope of employment of a Representative - or any federal employee - and thus is not the sort of conduct for which the United States is properly substituted as a defendant under the Westfall Act," it said.”

“"Today's actions strongly suggest that the Department of Justice will refuse to defend Trump's action on January 6, as well," said Anne Tindall, counsel for advocacy group Protect Democracy, which is representing two Capitol Hill police officers in separate litigation against Trump.”

 

Best news I've heard all day.

Ron,

Yes, I think so.

Little by little, the influence of the raging has been from Mar Lago will begin to wane. He has nothing to offer in the way of rebuttal except these rallies where he regurgitates the same old same old. People will grow tired of it and see it for what it is, just the rantings of a madman. The only problem is that he can do a lot of damage on his way out.

   Since this "56 Year" thread has become the place to post miscellany on this forum, I thought I would post a recent headline that is probably my favorite of the past month in our vast M$M/social media.

    It's the title of a July 21st thread by a "Mrs. Claw" at the Democratic Underground.  Since it's about our celebrated American cosmonaut Jeff Bezos, who was born in 1964, a case could be made that it qualifies as an "inevitable end result of our last 56 years."  🤥

Legal attacks on independent publishers and bloggers continue in the UK, with former diplomat and prominent Assange supporter Craig Murray jailed for violating an entirely new judicial concept which specifically does not apply to members of the mainstream media.

Jonathan Cook’s recap of the absurd Alice-In-Wonderland style proceedings is highly recommended:

They allude to this song in the article by referring to Steve Miller.  It's been stuck in my head since shortly after W posted it.  So this is his fault.  Since it's Saturday night, the original Space Cowboy, no hat needed.

Well, this is very upsetting.

 

Four suicides so far in police ranks since Jan 6:

But none in Congress, where blood rolls off a duck's back.

On Friday, the House oversight committee released notes of a 27 December telephone call from Trump to then acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, in which Trump told Rosen: “Just say the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R congressmen.” The notes were taken by Richard Donoghue, Rosen’s deputy, who was also on the call.

The release of these notes has barely made a stir. The weekend news was filled with more immediate things – infrastructure! The Delta strain! Inflation! Wildfires! In light of everything else going on, Trump’s bizarre efforts in the last weeks of his presidency seem wearily irrelevant. Didn’t we already know how desperate he was?

In a word, no. This revelation is hugely important.

Rosen obviously rejected Trump’s request. But what if Rosen had obeyed Trump and said to the American public that the election was corrupt – and then “left the rest” to Trump and the Republican congressmen? What would Trump’s and the Republicans’ next moves have been? And which Republican congressmen were in cahoots with Trump in this attempted coup d’état?
