A lawsuit filed by Capitol Police officers against President Donald Trump has been given the green light to proceed by a panel of judges. The three judges responsible for this ruling were appointed by current and former Democrat Presidents Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton.

This news comes at a time when Trump has recently received some favorable legal outcomes in certain pending cases. However, he will now be facing yet another civil case.

According to CBS News, Trump will be facing a lawsuit brought against him by a group of U.S. Capitol Police officers regarding his alleged actions on January 6, 2021, leading up to and during the protest in Washington D.C.

On Friday, a group of judges in a federal appeals court ruled that the lawsuit can proceed. The three-judge panel consists of Chief Judge Sri Srinivasan, who was appointed by Obama, Judge Bradley Garcia, who was appointed by Biden, and Judge Judith Rogers, who was appointed by Clinton.

The judges rejected Trump’s immunity defense, which is similar to a decision made against him by two Capitol Police officers and a group of House Democrats.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit based its decision on a previous ruling in December that stated Trump was not immune from the case.

“‘Whether [President Trump’s] actions involved speech on matters of public concern bears no inherent connection to the essential distinction between official and unofficial acts,’” the judges wrote in their decision Friday.

The court ruled against Trump’s claim for immunity, stating that his actions on that day were not considered as part of his presidential duties. This decision was made regardless of whether or not he bore some responsibility for the riot.

“When a first-term president opts to seek a second term, his campaign to win re-election is not an official presidential act,” Chief Judge Srinivasan wrote.

He added, “The Office of the Presidency as an institution is agnostic about who will occupy it next.

“And campaigning to gain that office is not an official act of the office.”

Multiple additional defendants have been named in the lawsuit filed by the group of Capitol Police officers against Trump. Among these defendants are members of Proud Boys and the Oathkeepers. Additionally, Roger Stone has also been included in the list of defendants.

CBS News noted:

The case was brought in August 2021 by seven Capitol Police officers who defended the Capitol complex on Jan. 6 and were assaulted and harassed during the riot, which they said was the result of “unlawful actions” by Trump and his allies.

The officers’ collective is said to be pursuing legal action for “civil damages resulting from physical and emotional harm” they allege to have endured during the Capitol riot on January 6. However, Brandon Straka has revealed that one of the officers, Byron Evans, confessed on CNN that he was not present at the Capitol during the alleged “riot.”

Straka, a prominent social media influencer known for founding the “Walk Away” campaign, which encourages individuals to disassociate from the Democratic Party, is also facing a lawsuit from the group. During the interview, the CNN reporter detailed Evans’ account of observing the protest on television from a secure location for several hours.

“I just remember the anger I felt when I saw those images,” Evans admitted.

“Busting windows, climbing the walls, and stuff like that.

“It was an audible gasp in the room”

Straka said in a post on X that they sued him, “alleging that I am a racist and a white supremacist and that I bore responsibility for their injuries.”
