Two Capitol Police officers sue Trump

Two Capitol Police officers sued former US President Donald Trump for inciting the January 6th insurrection that left dozens of their fellow officers injured and one dead. Officers James Blassingame and Sidney Hemby said they suffered “physical and emotional injuries” in the riot they said was fuelled by Trump, when he was in his final weeks as president and refusing to accept his election defeat. Blassingame, a 17-year veteran of the Capitol police force, said he incurred injuries to his head and back and suffers emotionally from the event.
