Capitol riot: Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani could face charges in D.C.

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.

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.

Brooks, in his speech at the rally, had said: “Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass,” and asked the throng if they were “willing” to sacrifice their blood or lives as their ancestors had done.
