Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was an Air Force veteran who was shot and killed while she was storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6th by a bullet from a Capitol Police officer named Lieutenant Michael Byrd.
Babbitt was unarmed, without any weapons of any kind on her person. She had not been carrying anything, nor had she been threatening anyone. The only crime she committed was being a small woman climbing through a window that had already been broken. Due to this tiny error in judgment, she was not arrested for criminal trespassing. Instead, she was shot in cold blood.
Michael Byrd is still walking free after this murder, and he has no remorse whatsoever. In fact, he believes that he saved lives by shooting this woman. This man is still on the Capitol Police force and he is free to kill again. However, his victim was a Trump supporter, so no one cares about what he did. Except for us, that is.
The watchdog group Judicial Watch recently obtained over 500 pages of internal documents from the D.C. Metro Police Department in regards to Ashli Babbitt’s murder.
Law Enforcement Today reported:
According to Fox News, Judicial Watch has obtained over 500 pages of internal documents from the DC Metro Police over the fatal shooting of unarmed Ashli Babbitt on January 6 during the US Capitol siege.
According to eyewitness accounts, they reveal that Babbitt was unarmed at the time she was shot to death and the officer who killed her—Lt. Michael Byrd of the US Capitol Police—was visibly upset after he shot her to death.
“These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.
The documents were received pursuant to a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit filed by the organization.
“The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.”
Babbitt, a veteran of the United States Air Force, was shot to death during the storming of the Capitol by Byrd as she allegedly climbed through a window into the Speaker’s lobby.
According to witnesses, the DC Metro documents revealed that Babbitt was unarmed when she was shot and also offered conflicting statements of whether Byrd verbally warned Babbitt prior to killing her.
So, there you go. Babbitt was unarmed, and Lt. Byrd was visibly shaken after he shot her.
