Two additional lawsuits were filed against former President Donald Trump on Tuesday by police officers who were working during the Jan. 6 Capitol attack.

One suit was filed by D.C. Metropolitan Police officers Bobby Tabron and DeDevine Carter, and the other by Capitol Police officer Marcus Moore. In their complaint, Tabron and Carter allege that Trump's "words and conduct" leading up to Jan. 6 "demonstrated a willful and wanton disregard for and a reckless indifference" to the safety of police officers. Tabron, the complaint states, found himself engaged in "hand-to-hand combat" with rioters and "was forcefully pushed back and fell backwards as thousands of insurrectionists surged forward."
