They DID break the law.
Looks like what Rep. Mo Brooks said was spot on. According to reports, one of Swalwell’s team members has been named in an arrest warrant sought after by Mo Brooks.
Swalwell’s team allegedly broke the law when they illegally entered the home of Rep. Brooks to serve him papers related to a bogus January 6th lawsuit.
When Mo Brooks made these allegations he was met with bold faced denial on the part of Swalwell’s team, but now the truth is surfacing.
I’ll let these videos and reports speak for themselves:
.@ericswalwell's team lied when they denied their teammate illegally trespassed into my home. Well, the home security video, Huntsville PD, the Madison County District Attorney’s office, a warrant magistrate and an arrest warrant all say differently. https://t.co/98ah1Sv9Rd

Becker News gave us more details on the arrest warrant:
Eric Swalwell’s office harassed Rep. Mo Brooks and his wife over a frivolous lawsuit related to the January 6th events. Now, one of Swalwell’s team has been hit with an arrest warrant.
“On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said he and his wife have sworn out an arrest warrant for Christian Seklecki, the man who served a lawsuit to their home on June 6,” CBS reported.
“According to a statement from Brooks, the warrant seeks to charge Seklecki with criminal trespass in the first degree,” the report continued. “Alabama Code sets the penalty for criminal mischief in the first degree at up to a year in jail and a fine of $6,000.”
.@EricSwalwell Well, Swalwell FINALLY did his job, served complaint (on my WIFE).
HORRIBLE Swalwell’s team committed a CRIME by unlawfully sneaking INTO MY HOUSE & accosting my wife!
Alabama Code 13A-7-2: 1st degree criminal trespass. Year in jail. $6000 fine.
More to come! pic.twitter.com/XSrFnezDlC

The Hill had more on the incident:
An attorney for Swalwell, Philip Andonian, said no one entered or attempted to enter the Brooks’ house, according to a report by CNN.
“That allegation is completely untrue,” Andonian said. “A process server lawfully served the papers on Mo Brooks’ wife, as the federal rules allow. This was after her initial efforts to avoid service.”
“Mo Brooks has no one but himself to blame for the fact that it came to this. We asked him to waive service, we offered to meet him at a place of his choosing. Instead of working things out like a civilized person, he engaged in a juvenile game of Twitter trolling over the past few days and continued to evade service. He demanded that we serve him. We did just that. The important thing is the complaint has been served and Mo Brooks can now be held accountable for his role in inciting the deadly insurrection at the Capitol,” Andonian added.
Mo Brooks had previously taunted Swalwell for being unable to serve him the lawsuit, which seeks to hold the Alabama congressman personally responsible for the Jan. 6 mob attack on the Capitol.
