HeadlineMar 31, 2021

Two police officers at the U.S. Capitol who were injured in the January 6 insurrection have sued former President Trump for inciting and directing the right-wing rioters. Meanwhile, Republicans are continuing to embrace backers of the violent insurrection. Video has emerged showing Stewart Rhodes, the founder of the far-right group the Oath Keepers, speaking at an official Republican event in Texas on March 26 in the border town of Laredo. Other speakers at the event included Texas Republican Party Chair Allen West. Over a dozen members of the Oath Keepers have been charged with conspiracy for attacking the U.S. Capitol.
