Arrest Warrant Issued for Swalwell Minion Who Followed GOP Rep's Wife Into Their Home

Western Journal

It appears that serving lawsuits is not a strong suit for Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California. First, he claimed he was unable to find Republican Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks to serve him a lawsuit related to the Jan. 6 incursion into the Capitol, so Swalwell hired someone to do it for him.

Eventually, that resulted in a wild video where the process server can be seen running into Brooks’ garage to apparently serve the lawsuit to his wife, Martha. In the latest twist in this saga, that process server, identified as Christian Seklecki by AL.com, is now facing charges after he unlawfully trespassed on Brooks’ property.

That video clearly shows Seklecki, who was working for Swalwell, entering an area of the Brooks’ home without permission. Martha Brooks filed a lawsuit immediately after the incident, and Mo Brooks’ congressional office issued a news release confirming that an arrest warrant had been sworn out, AL.com reported.

“Mo and I take our security very seriously, as do all families,” Martha said in the release. “My hope is that my actions today will cause the process server to think twice before illegally invading the sanctity of someone else’s home, and put those who would threaten our security on notice that we will pursue illegal actions to the fullest extent of the law.”

Swalwell’s camp attempted to defend Seklecki despite the obvious video evidence against him. AL.com reported that an attorney for Swalwell claimed “there was nothing illegal or inappropriate about the service.”

According to Alabama law, “A person is guilty of criminal trespass in the first degree if he knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in a dwelling.” This is defined as a Class A misdemeanor in the state.

The original lawsuit that Seklecki served to Martha was ridiculous on its face. According to CNN, Swalwell named Mo Brooks as a defendant in the lawsuit along with former President Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump, Jr. and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

The lawsuit claims that those four individuals “incited” a riot on Jan. 6, and that they “aided and abetted violent rioters.” These are similar to the phony charges brought by House Democrats when they impeached Donald Trump over the incident.

“Congressman Eric Swalwell lied in his politically motivated, meritless lawsuit against President Donald Trump and me when he falsely claimed I incited the January 6 Capitol violence,” Mo Brooks said in the same news release announcing the arrest warrant against Seklecki.

From the outset, Mo Brooks has effectively laughed off Swalwell’s suit. He took particular exception to the idea that Swalwell could not find him to serve the lawsuit, which eventually resulted in Swalwell asking for an extension, AL.com reported in a separate article.

In response to this claim, Brooks posted a tweet showing himself in public settings and mocking Swalwell for supposedly being unable to locate him.

“@ericswalwell is apparently trying to ‘find me’ to discuss my Save America speech,” he wrote on June 4. “Have you seen me out?! Good ol’ Patriots have! Guess the libs aren’t looking so hard.”

He kept the joke going with more tweets in which he sarcastically disguised himself in glasses and “hid” at his granddaughter’s birthday party.

Brooks is completely reasonable in mocking this lawsuit. To be frank, it is a baseless suit that probably deserves to be mocked.

Neither Brooks nor the other three people listed as defendants incited any riots. The idea that speeches given that day with regard to the election somehow suggested it was acceptable to riot at the Capitol is simply a lie.

Furthermore, new evidence in recent days has suggested that the events on Jan. 6 may not have been as riotous as we thought. For example, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson said he reviewed video footage that showed Capitol Police officers standing by and allowing people to enter the Capitol building.

This lawsuit against Brooks is a purely partisan attack that is not based in fact. Unfortunately for Swalwell, it now seems that the person most likely to be charged in this whole incident is his own minion.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
