Trump did not incite violence against protesters at a 2016 campaign rally, court rules

(CNN)Three people who were pushed and shoved while protesting at a 2016 Donald Trump campaign rally cannot sue the President for inciting the crowd, a federal appeals court has ruled.

The three-judge panel ruled unanimously Tuesday in favor of the President, saying that Trump saying “Get ’em out of here” during the rally in Louisville, Kentucky, was not a valid claim of “incitement to riot,” which is a misdemeanor under Kentucky law.
Kashiya Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau attended a rally for Trump on March 1, 2016, to “peacefully protest” the then-candidate. Nwanguma was carrying a sign with Trump’s head on a pig’s body, according to multiple news reports.
After Trump said “Get ’em out of here,” several members of the audience — including Matthew Heimbach, a representative of the white nationalist Traditionalist Workers Party, and Alvin Bamberger — began to attack the protesters, according to a judge’s ruling last year.
