A federal lawsuit alleging Donald Trump, his lawyer, and far-right extremists at the U.S. Capitol conspired to deprive Americans of their civil rights by disrupting the count of Joe Biden’s electoral college victory with the Jan. 6 riot is expanding this week.

Lawyers for the NAACP, which brought the suit early this year on behalf of Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), are set to file an amended complaint on Wednesday adding ten new plaintiffs, two people familiar with the matter say. The new plaintiffs will include other members of Congress, and the amended complaint is said to include additional information regarding the deadly Jan. 6 riot in Washington, DC, that then-President Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani are accused of inciting, the sources added.

The addition of new plaintiffs was first reported by New York Times on Tuesday.

Colbert and Kimmel Mock Matt Gaetz Sex Party Madness
ABC/CBSThere’s just something about scandalous congressional sex parties that was irresistible for the late-night hosts Wednesday night.“This morning, we learned that [Matt] Gaetz attended champagne-fueled sex parties with GOP officials,” Stephen Colbert began on The Late Show, citing a Daily Beast report. “I’ve never been so torn in my life. I want there to be a sex tape, but I don’t want to dig out my own eyes with a grapefruit spoon.”“These weren’t your workaday champagne intercourse shindigs,” the host continued. “They were house parties in a gated community in suburban Orlando. Is Matt Gaetz a congressman or a high school senior?” Noting that women said they were told to put away their cell phones because the men didn’t want the night’s activities to be documented, Colbert joked that the women replied, “It’s sex with Matt Gaetz, neither do we.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
