Trump Made This Statement One Year Ago, Now A Judge Has Made A Harsh Ruling

Three audience members at a Donald Trump campaign rally in March, 2016 have filed a lawsuit that charges the Trump campaign with inciting a riot. The president's lawyers attempted to have the case dismissed, but a judge has ruled that the suit may proceed because Mr. Trump incited violence.

Kashiya Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed against Matthew Heimbach and Alvin Bamberger. During a Trump rally, Nwanguma, Shah and Broussea began protesting. Heimbach, 25, a members of the Traditionalist Workers Party, and 75-year-old Bamberger, a veteran, shoved one of the women during the rally. Both have been charged with assault and battery. Bamberger has expressed regret for his behavior during the rally, claiming he got caught up in the excitement of the moment.

When protests began, then-candidate Donald Trump shouted, "Get 'em out of here." The lawsuit alleges the Trump campaign is negligent, reckless and incited a riot.

However, U.S. District Judge David J. Hale in Louisville ruled Friday that he agrees, and ruled that the suit may proceed. Hale believes that the protesters got physical against the plaintiffs as a 'direct and proximate result' of Trump's actions.

"It was an order, an instruction, a command" that "at least implicitly encouraged the use of violence or lawless action," wrote Hale in his decision.

Trump's lawyers argued that the comment Trump made from the stage was directed at his security personnel. Hale dismissed that claim. "Presumably if he had intended for protesters to be escorted out by security personnel, Trump would have instructed the intervening audience members to stop what they were doing, rather than offering guidance on how to go about it," he wrote.

Hale also pointed out that there were no security guards intervening during the alleged attack. "In sum, the Court finds that Plaintiffs have adequately alleged that their harm was foreseeable and that the Trump Defendants had a duty to prevent it," he concluded.
