Representatives of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) have finally served a lawsuit that alleges Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) and other pro-Trump allies bear responsibility for the Capitol riot, the Republican congressman said Sunday.

Why it matters: Swalwell had been trying since March to serve the suit on Brooks. Attorneys for the Democrat said last Wednesday they'd hired a private investigator to locate Brooks.

What they're saying: "Well, Swalwell FINALLY did his job, served complaint (on my WIFE)," Brooks tweeted.

  • He alleged that the Democratic lawmaker's team illegally trespassed in the process, "accosting my wife!" He didn't elaborate further, though he added: "More to come!"

  • Representatives for Brooks and Swalwell could not immediately be reached

The big picture: Swalwell's lawsuit has also been filed against former President Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani over the Jan. 6 insurrection.
