At least 10 Democratic members of Congress have joined a lawsuit against Donald Trump for his role in the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.

Three months after hundreds of supporters of the then president stormed the Capitol building in an effort to “stop the steal” and prevent the election of Joe Biden being certified, close to a dozen members of the House of Representatives who were there have joined the legal action against Mr Trump.

“There is no question that the mob's unlawful actions — their brutal, anti-Democratic attack against the very seat of our democracy — interfered with my ability to exercise my constitutional responsibility of certifying the 2020 presidential election,“ House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, said in a statement.

“This violence was anything but spontaneous; it was the direct result of a conspiracy to incite a riot, instigated by President Trump, Rudolph Giuliani, the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers.”
