Brooks was ridiculed by several people on social media for disclosing sensitive information.
Alabama Republican Congressman Mo Brooks accidentally revealed his Gmail password and Twitter PIN. In a video released, Brooks accused a team of California Democratic Representative Eric Swalwell of breaking into his home to bring a lawsuit to his wife.
Swalwell has pledged for months to bring Brooks to trial over his alleged role in the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021. However, Brooks was difficult to track down, and Swalwell even hired a private detective.
Swalwell’s lawyer denies that the lawmaker’s team has invaded Brooks’ property. According to the lawyer, the person who filed the lawsuit “did not enter the house illegally, but legally handed over the paper to Mo Brooks’ wife in the house.”
However, the Republican MP filed a police report on the alleged incident and claimed there was “video evidence” of the infiltration. In a Twitter post, Brooks, using his mobile phone, shared a desktop image of a demo website for the Alabama Legislature, which shows a “First Degree Assault” page with crime definitions. At the bottom of the image, under the laptop screen, you could see Brooks’ PIN, as well as his Gmail account information and password.
