Over the weekend, the Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump during his second impeachment trial. On the heels of that decision, the NAACP has filed a lawsuit against Trump, Rudy Giuliani, his personal lawyer. and two white supremacist groups. The NAACP is joined by Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson and civil rights law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll in the lawsuit.

A copy of the lawsuit can be found here.

Their lawsuit claims Trump and Giuliani and the two groups conspired to incite the riots on the Capitol in January. In addition, the lawsuit claims Trump, Giuliani, the Proud Boys, and Oath Keepers violated the Ku Klux Klan Act which was put in place to protect formerly enslaved African Americans and lawmakers in Congress from white supremacist violence.

“If we don’t put a check on the spread of domestic terrorism, it will consume this nation and transform it to something that none of us recognize,” stated NAACP President Derrick Johnson. “We must, as a nation, prevent the spread of this type of boldness where [insurrectionists] will go to our U.S. Capitol and seek an act of treason.”
