Alabama GOP Rep Mo Brooks was served with a lawsuit filed by California Rep Eric Swalwell seeking to hold him accountable for his part in the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.
Swalwell’s legal team had been having difficulty serving the papers to Brooks, according to court filings.
Brooks claims the Swalwell team committed crimes in the process of serving the complaint.
The process server has yet to inform the court that Brooks was served, which starts a clock for Brooks to respond to the accusations which seek to hold him and the former guy (and others) accountable for the attack on Congress. Brooks has the opportunity to contest it in court if he feels he wasn’t served properly.
Brooks posted a photo (not a screen shot) of the tweet, which incidentally had his PIN number and Gmail password taped to the bottom of the laptop.
Brooks has also been caught blocking people on Twitter from the official Congressional account, which is illegal. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) was caught doing the same and was forced to settle with a liberal group for a $10,000 fee. At least two people have reported being blocked by Brooks, including actor, producer and women’s equality activist Patricia Arquette.
