Actor at the J6 protest launches class action suit against FBI
Special From Freedom Watch
LOS ANGELES, CA – Hollywood actor and conservative activist Siaka Massaquoi filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California this week, calling a raid by FBI agents unconstitutional.
The earning morning raid took place in early June at his Hollywood home, as ordered by FBI Director Christopher Wray after the January 6 U.S. Capitol protest.
The complaint, which is filed as a class action for all persons who were in the nation’s capital to peacefully protest, but who in the aftermath have been rounded up, had their homes and businesses violated and broken into, their property seized without probable cause, arrested, prosecuted, denied bail, or some even thrown into solitary confinement while awaiting trial, alleges the violation of First, Fifth, and Fourteenth constitutional rights by the defendants.
Larry Klayman, the chairman and general counsel of Freedom Watch and a former U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor during the Reagan administration, who represents Massaquoi, had this to say:
“The FBI, as alleged, is being used by the Biden-Harris Justice Department as the administration’s and the left’s ‘personal Gestapo’ to stifle free speech and dissent over the near total leftist, socialist and borderline communist takeover of our body politic. And, FBI Director Wray bears personal legal responsibility and liability for these unconstitutional acts, which he has bragged about in public testimony before Congress – branding the peaceful protestors as mostly white domestic terrorists.”
The lead plaintiff, Massaquoi, was not arrested, and was at the Capitol peacefully. He and his family and friends were handcuffed in front of children, denied right of counsel, and allegedly illegally questioned. To make matters worse, his cell phone and computers were seized, preventing him from carrying out his trade and profession and well as personal matters. The defendants have refused to return his property.
