Eric Swalwell serves Mo Brooks’ wife lawsuit — Brooks claims servers violating Alabama criminal trespass code by ‘unlawfully’ entering home

On Sunday, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama’s 2022 election, revealed his House colleague U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) finally succeeded in serving the lawsuit he had filed against Brooks for his alleged role in the incident that took place on January 6 on Capitol Hill.

Brooks had spoken to a crowd gathered to protest the tabulations of the 2020 presidential election. Shortly thereafter, protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol, causing injury and damage to public property. Swalwell sued Brooks, alleging that his speech incited what has since been deemed by the left and its allies in the media an “insurrection.”

Brooks revealed that Swalwell succeeded but alleged the service violated Alabama criminal statute through his Twitter account.

According to Brooks, Swalwell violated Section 13A-7-2 of the Code of Alabama.

Section 13A-7-2
Criminal trespass in the first degree.
(a) A person is guilty of criminal trespass in the first degree if he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in a dwelling.

(b) Criminal trespass in the first degree is a Class A misdemeanor.

(Acts 1977, No. 607, p. 812, §2605.)


CNN’s Jim Acosta reported that Swalwell confirmed the service.
