Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “A Capitol Police officer who was injured during the Capitol Riot is suing Trump, arguing he 'directed the mob'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Capitol Police officer filed a lawsuit against former President Donald Trump a year after the January 6 insurrection arguing that he played a "central role in inciting" the riot. 

In the lawsuit filed in the US District Court for Washington DC, Briana Kirkland, 29, said Trump's "provocative words and actions" resulted in the violence she and other officers experienced. 

"As the leader of this violent mob, who took their cues from his campaign rhetoric and personal tweets and traveled from around the country to the nation's capital at Trump's invitation for the January 6 rally, Trump was in a position of extraordinary influence over his followers, who committed assault and battery on Briana Kirkland," the complaint says. "Trump, by his words and conduct, directed the mob that stormed the Capitol and assaulted and battered Briana Kirkland." 

Kirkland said she suffered a traumatic brain injury that forced her to take a year off from work. She's seeking at least $75,000 in damages, according to the complaint.
