Two parliamentary police officers sued Trump and accused him of inciting a mob who attacked the parliament on January 6.
Officers James Brushungham and Sydney Henby alleged that the riots caused physical and mental injuries.
The proceedings from two Capitol police officers followed two similar proceedings from Democrats.
Two Parliamentary police officers have accused former President Donald Trump of inciting a violent riot on January 6.
According to court documents obtained by insiders, the proceedings were related to the injuries they received during the “Trump inflamed, encouraged, instigated, directed, assisted, and beaten” riots.
On Tuesday, police officers James Brushungham and Sydney Henby alleged that they had been attacked by protesters who sprayed aerosol chemicals such as pepper spray, bear spray, and tear gas, causing chemical burns to their skin. According to court documents, they were one of the other police officers attacked with “rocks, bottles, fire extinguishers, metal rods.”
In addition to the physical injuries he suffered during the riots, Brasungham suffered “serious emotional sacrifices” in the light of incidents, including depression, according to the proceedings.
“He suffers from the memory and sensory effects of the attack. The sight, sound, smell, and even taste of the attack remain close to the surface,” the proceedings said. “He was unable to help a colleague who was being attacked at the same time and is experiencing the guilt of surviving where other colleagues did not.”
According to the proceedings, the January 6 riots also hit Henby mentally.
“When he returned home on the night of January 6, 2021, he was in an elevated emotional state and could not sleep,” the proceedings read. “He relived the moment he was attacked. Every time he fell asleep, he woke up to fear that people were trying to break into his house.”
Police are seeking unspecified monetary damages in the proceedings, but the document states that “the amount of the dispute exceeds $ 75,000, excluding interest and costs.”
