Donald Trump is currently facing a wrongful death lawsuit that has been brought on by the girlfriend of U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died of natural causes the day after the Jan. 6 Capitol protest. However, the Left has been continuously spreading lies about the officer dying while defending the Capitol, which is blatantly false.
Despite the evidence not pointing towards the events of Jan. 6 as the cause of death, Sicknick’s girlfriend, Sandra Garza, is seeking at least $10 million in damages from Trump, as well as from each of the two men who have been charged in connection with Jan. 6, Julian Khater and George Tanios.
On top of all this, Garza is seeking unspecified punitive damages and coverage of attorney fees.
According to Garza’s lawyer, any money won in the lawsuit will be donated to charity.
Garza’s complaint was filed by her attorneys on January 5 at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The complaint says, “The horrific events of January 6, 2021, including Officer Sicknick’s tragic, wrongful death, were a direct and foreseeable consequence of the Defendants’ unlawful actions.”
The lawsuit accuses Trump of inciting “the violence at the U.S. Capitol that followed and then watching approvingly as the building was overrun.”
“After Defendant Trump’s speech ended, insurgents charged the hill surrounding the U.S. Capitol and began scaling the building’s outer walls. Officers reported rioters were attacking them with metal poles. Law enforcement and local leaders put out calls for help. Officers called for reinforcements as the mob pulled down the gates erected to protect the U.S. Capitol and attacked officers,” says the lawsuit.
However, none of these events have anything to do with the subject of the lawsuit, which is the unrelated death of an officer the following day.
