“These records show that Lt. Byrd was given special treatment by the Biden DOJ and that there was a miscarriage of justice in the half-baked shooting death investigation of Ashli Babbitt,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. He added, “Lt. Byrd, who works for Congress, shot an unarmed woman for no good reason.”
Gosar read the facts into the record: zero firearms were found on suspects charged with breaching the Capitol; Officer Sicknick died from natural causes; not a single person has been charged with a crime of insurrection; Ashli Babbitt was not armed and her death certificate listed homicide as the cause of death.
The Department of Justice is prosecuting hundreds of Trump supporters for as little as walking through the Capitol building, but refuses to press charges against, or even identify, the Capitol police officer who shot and killed unarmed 14-year Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol building on Jan 6.
Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed Trump supporter, was shot dead by a Capitol Police officer as she attempted to climb through a broken window inside the building, in order to bypass a barricade. Some witnesses said the police officer had no choice but shoot Ashli, while others say the officer should be prosecuted.
