Trump supporters gather near the east door of the U.S. Capitol after groups broke into the building on Jan. 6.

WASHINGTON – The District of Columbia filed a civil lawsuit against the in federal court on Tuesday Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers filed, accusing the two extremist groups and their members of conspiring to attack the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.

The lawsuit sets out the most recent legal ramifications for the two groups as well the recent attempt to pass federal law, originally aimed at combating the threat posed by the Ku Klux Klan, to hold people and organizations accountable for the attack on the Capitol. The district’s case highlights the hundreds of local police officers who responded to the riot to aid the overwhelmed U.S. Capitol Police, the injuries some of those officers suffered, and the financial cost to the city.

 » Our own citizens were determined to destroy the freedoms and ideals on which our country was founded and which it continues to seek, « DC Attorney General Karl Racine said at a press conference outside the Capitol when the case was announced. “January 6th was a brazen, violent and fatal attack, to say the least, that traumatized this city, this community and our country. And most importantly, no one – no one – has borne the brunt of this brave attack more than the brave police officers. « 

The lawsuit joins the hundreds of civil prosecutions against former President Donald Trump’s supporters who stormed the Capitol of members of Congress who fled rioters and police officers injured while defending the building; and an extensive investigation by the Congressional Special Committee that shared a collection of Jan. 6 the night before the DC lawsuit was announced Text messages delivered by Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that exposed the desperate attempts by Fox News presenters and Donald Trump Jr. to get Trump to do something to stop the riot.

« He’s got to do this shit sentence as soon as possible. The tweet from the Capitol Police is not enough, « wrote Donald Trump Jr., according to excerpts published by de r Board Vice Chairperson Liz Cheney.

“Mark, the president needs to tell the people in the Capitol to go home. It hurts all of us. It is destroying his legacy, « Fox News’ Laura Ingraham wrote.

Unlike several other civil suits filed in connection with January 6, the DC case does not name Trump or some of his prominent allies like Rudy Giuliani as a defendant.

The DC lawsuit marks a dramatic final act on the national stage by Racine – the district’s first elected attorney general – who has announced that he will not run for re-election in 2022. His office was a thorn in Trump’s side from the start. In June 2017, Racine held a press conference with his Maryland counterpart Brian Frosh to announce that Trump would be on trial for his refusal to give up his financial interests in his business empire after he took office. The fight ultimately centered around the Trump International Hotel in downtown DC, the hub of the Trump-era city social scene. Trump, whose position was supported by a team of private lawyers as well as by the Justice Department, repeatedly failed to take the lawsuit out of court.

The dispute over whether Trump had violated the so-called pay clauses of the US Constitution came into this last year in office before the US Supreme Court. In January, less than a week after President Joe Biden was sworn in, judges dismissed the DC and Maryland case, as well as the case filed by a government watchdog group, as contentious when Trump was no longer president.

Except Of the earnings, the DC Attorney General has often teamed up with their Democratic counterparts in other states to sue the Trump administration’s actions. Last year, the office also filed a civil lawsuit against Trump’s 2017 founding committee, accusing him of misusing funds as a charitable organization. Last month, a judge ruled that part of the city’s case could go ahead.
