The NAACP is suing former President Donald Trump for violating the Ku Klux Klan act by allegedly inciting riots in the nation's capitol on Jan. 6.

"If we don't put a check on the spread of domestic terrorism, it will consume this nation and transform it to something that none of us recognize," said NAACP President Derrick Johnson in an interview. "We must, as a nation, prevent the spread of this type of boldness where [insurrectionists] will go to our U.S. Capitol and seek an act of treason."

According to Politico, the NAACP, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson and civil rights law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll filed a lawsuit against Trump, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and two white supremacist groups, following Trump's historic impeachment acquittal on insurrection charges.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday morning in a Washington, DC courtroom, alleges that Trump and Giuliani collaborated with pro-Trump groups the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers to incite riots and overthrow the United States government.

The lawsuit claims Trump and his supporters conspired to keep Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The plaintiffs claim Trump's remarks during his "Save America" rally "mobilized and directed insurrectionists to storm the Capitol building."

The lawsuit also alleges, Giuliani called congressional lawmakers individually, asking them to try to "slow down" the Electoral College vote count on Jan. 6.

Trump was acquitted of all charges in a historic second impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate. All 50 Democrats and 7 Republicans voted guilty, but 67 votes are required to convict.
