Three lawsuits were brought by Democrat lawmakers and Capitol police officers against President Trump and the groups and allege that Trump was involved in a civil conspiracy to disrupt the election results.

Judge Amit Mehta wrote: “From these alleged facts, it is at least plausible to infer that, when he called on rallygoers to march to the Capitol, the President did so with the goal of disrupting lawmakers’ efforts to certify the Electoral College votes. The Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys, and others who forced their way into the Capitol building plainly shared in that unlawful goal.”

Mehta was appointed by former President Obama also dismissed some claims. Mehta did not allow actions against former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. to continue.

And boldly, the judge stated that he would, if asked, dismiss a case against Alabama Republican Representative Mo Brooks if he were petitioned.
