Insurrectionist Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) incited the crowd of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol on January 6th to overthrow democracy, and now he is going to have to finally appear in court to answer for his sedition.

“Today is the day American patriots start taking down names and kicking ass,” Brooks told the crowd that day. Violence would ensue. People died. And democracy nearly ended.

While Republicans are refusing to allow an investigation of the failed coup attempt, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) has filed a lawsuit against Brooks for endangering his life.

Like a coward, Brooks has been in hiding so that he cannot be served a subpoena to appear in court. But that all changed this week when a process server delivered the subpoena to Brooks’ wife at their home, resulting in a temper tantrum by Brooks on Twitter in which he accused Swalwell’s team of trespassing and suggested that the subpoena is somehow void.

Of course, it’s likely whoever delivered the subpoena did so properly. Brooks is just whining like a little baby because he finally has to answer for his actions on January 6th in court.

Twitter users mocked him mercilessly for being a hypocrite while legal experts schooled him on the law.

Mo Brooks can kick and scream all he wants, the bottom line is that he must appear in court now or the judge can have him dragged into the courtroom, where he faces perjuring himself or admitting he and other Republicans played a role in orchestrating the insurrection. Pleading the Fifth would basically be an admission of guilt as well. If Brooks has nothing to hide, he wouldn’t have gone into hiding to avoid being served.
