Federal judge tosses most claims against Trump, Barr and U.S. officials in clearing of Lafayette Squarehttps://www.washingtonpost.com/local/legal-issues/lafayette-square-lawsuit-claims-dismissed/2021/06/21/8c0e8416-d2ce-11eb-ae54-515e2f63d37d_story.html
Officials used batons, clubs and spray and fired projectiles as more than 1,000 largely peaceful demonstrators gathered
