DC attorney general considers riot incitement charges against Donald Trump Jr., Giuliani, GOP Rep. Brooks

The District of Columbia’s attorney general said Monday that he is looking at whether to charge Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks with inciting the violent invasion of the U.S. Capitol last week by a horde of President Donald Trump’s supporters.

Karl Racine also left open the door to prosecuting President Trump himself for the same conduct once he leaves office later this month.

Racine’s comments came during an interview on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” after he was shown video clips of the Trumps and the president’s personal lawyer, Giuliani, whipping up a crowd at a rally outside the White House last Wednesday, and asked about the trio and Brooks, an Alabama Republican.

Both Trumps had urged the crowd to fight, and Giuliani had called for “trial by combat,” as they falsely claimed that Joe Biden had been declared the victor of the the presidential election because of ballot fraud.
