“He has no absolute immunity”
Mess. The United States Department of Justice considered this Thursday that the former president of the country Donald Trump (2017-2021) can be sued for having incited the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
According to a brief from the Justice Department’s civil law division registered this Thursday in the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and collected by the US media, Trump “does not have absolute immunity” from civil lawsuits filed by police officers and members of Congress who they seek to hold him responsible for the physical and psychological damage suffered by the events.
Lawyers for the former president asked the Columbia Court of Appeals to dismiss the lawsuits.
