Alabama GOP spokesman Moe Brooks said he had been helped by a lawsuit brought by President Eric Schwall, claiming he had helped provoke the Capitol riots – but accused a Democratic group of breaking into his home.
Swallowell “tries to ‘find me’ to discuss my Save America text. Did you see me out ?! Good ol ‘patriots! ” Brooks said in a tweet Friday.
“Lips I think not too hard,” he joked, marked “got” red with the “need” poster.
He followed one Tweet Sunday In it he said, “Swallowwell finally did his job and complained (to my wife). Swallowell’s group committed a heinous crime by illegally sneaking into my house and inciting my wife! ”
Brooks added: “Alabama Code 13A-7-2: 1st Degree Criminal Violation. Year in prison. 000 6000 fine. Lots to come! “
A Brooks spokesman said the congressman had reported the incident to police.
“Swallowwell’s process server entered Brooks’ home without Martha Brooks’ knowledge and without her permission,” said Delegate Clay Mills, referring to Brooks’ wife in the Washington Post.
“He then refused to leave when Ms. Brooks requested it. There is video evidence. Brooks filed a police report,” Mills said, adding that he did not share the video or a copy of the police report.
Swallowwell Attorney Matthew Kaiser CNN On Sunday night, a private investigator left papers at their home with Brooks’ wife.
Philip Antonian, another lawyer for Swallowell, denied Brooks’ allegations.
“No one tried to enter or enter Brooks’ home. That accusation is completely false. A process server legally provided Mo Brooks’ wife’s documents, as federal rules allow, ”he told the Antonion Network.
“It happened after his initial attempts to avoid service. Mo Brooks had no one other than this. We asked him to dismiss the service and we volunteered to meet him at the place he chooses,” he said.
“Instead of doing things like a civilized person, he has been involved in a young game called Twitter trolling for the past few days, constantly avoiding service. He demanded that we serve him. We did it,” Antonion continued.
“The important thing is that the complaint was lodged and Mo Brooks can now be held accountable for his role in inciting a deadly uprising in the Capitol,” he said.
Swallowell’s legal team told CNN that Brooks had not duly notified the court that he had served.
Former President Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., former Trump attorney Rudy Giuloni and Brooks are suing Washington D.C. for violating laws, including the Anti-Terrorism Act, by “inciting” the January 6 riots. Aided and abetted the rebels and caused emotional distress to members of Congress.
The former president, his son and Giuliani, who acknowledged receiving the case, argue that their words were not muffled and that they are protected.
