The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the Donald Trump administration.

Trump administration sued for violation of civil rights

This was reported by the Associated Press.

The lawsuit is related to the incident in a park near the White House, from where law enforcement officers forced the demonstrators out by force to clear the way for the president. Prosecutors say Donald Trump, Attorney General William Barr and other officials “illegally conspired to violate” the rights of protesters during the mopping up Lafayette Park. On Monday, security forces used smoke bombs and tear gas to disperse the crowd.

As William Barr himself said, on Monday, he hoped that the security perimeter around the White House would be expanded in the morning, but in the evening he discovered that this did not happen, although the president was supposed to speak at a press conference. As a result, the security forces were ordered to urgently take action.

As News Front previously reported, riots have not subsided in the United States since last week. Uprising began in Minneapolis, where a policeman killed African-American George Floyd. The man was detained on suspicion of forging a check for $ 20. During the arrest, the policeman began to press his knee on Floyd’s neck. He said that he had nothing to breathe, but the policeman did not listen. As a result, the detainee died.
