More police officers sue Trump over January 6

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/january-6- ... -lawsuits/
Three more law enforcement officers are suing former President Trump in two separate lawsuits over his words and actions leading up to the January 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol.

Two Metropolitan Police officers and one Capitol Police officer have filed separate lawsuits, alleging wrongful conduct in inciting a riot as his followers tried to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Both lawsuits were filed in D.C. federal court Tuesday, two days before the one-year anniversary of the Capitol assault.

"Trump's words and conduct leading up to and on January 6, 2021, and his ratification through silence when words and action were necessary, and his further ratification by direct praise of the rioters, as set forth herein, demonstrated a willful and wanton disregard for and a reckless indifference to Bobby Tabron and DeDivine K. Carter's safety and that of their fellow officers," reads the complaint from Metropolitan Police officers Bobby Tabron and DeDevine Carter.

NOTE: These are TWO different lawsuits, one by two Metro D.C. cops, and one by a Capitol Police cop. Should maybe be two different threads? Only reason combined in the story is both filed last day before statute of limitations.

These cases are important enough to merit their own threads. Isn't there another civil suit by cops against Trump? If so, I can't locate it. :shrug:
