California Congressman Eric Swalwell (D) finally went through with his promise to give GOP Rep. Mo Brooks (Ala.) a lawsuit over his accused part in the protest at the Capitol on Jan. 6th.
After being given the suit, Brooks revealed that Swalwell’s men broke into his home and accosted his wife.
Swalwell sued Trump, Giuliani, Trump Jr., and Brooks accusing them of provoking the Capitol “riot” by saying that voter fraud happened during the 2020 election.
The lawsuit also says the defendants broke measures “including the anti-terrorism act, by causing the riot, and that they all aided and abetted the rioters and caused emotional distress on Congress-members,” CNN said.
Swalwell’s team paid for a private investigator to find Brooks. But even this investigator could not find the GOP Rep. at first.
The investigator eventually did find the congressman and delivered the lawsuit to Brooks’ wife in Alabama.
Now Brooks is revealing that the private investigator not only gave the lawsuit, but also committed trespass while doing so — and even said his wife was “accosted.”
“Well, Swalwell FINALLY succeeded, served (to my WIFE). TERRIBLE Swalwell’s team broke the LAW by sneaking INTO MY HOUSE & accosting my wife!” Brooks said on twitter.
.@EricSwalwell Well, Swalwell FINALLY did his job, served complaint (on my WIFE).
HORRIBLE Swalwell’s team committed a CRIME by unlawfully sneaking INTO MY HOUSE & accosting my wife!
Alabama Code 13A-7-2: 1st degree criminal trespass. Year in jail. $6000 fine.

An attorney for Swalwell, Philip Andonian, talked to CNN, denied Brooks’ accusations, and attacked the GOP congressman for not allowing himself to be served with the suit.
“No one even tried to enter the Brooks’ home. That accusation is untrue. A process server legally gave the papers to his wife, as the rules allow,” Andonian said.
“This was after her first efforts to stop service. Brooks has no one to blame but himself for the fact it came to this. We asked him to meet us at whenever and wherever he wanted. Instead of doing what a civilized person would do, he played a juvenile game on Twitter by trolling us and evading service,” Andonian added. “He wanted us to serve him. Now we have.”
