Many conservatives and patriots will question why this is the outcome of the shooting and killing of Ashli Babbitt during the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January, 6th.
Breaking Now: “A U.S. Capitol Police officer has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing for fatally shooting Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt as she attempted to breach a set of doors deep in the Capitol during the January siege, federal prosecutors in D.C. announced Wednesday,” according to The Washington Post.
“Authorities determined there was insufficient evidence to prove Babbitt’s civil rights were violated, and that it was reasonable for the officer to believe he was firing in self-defense or in defense of members of Congress and aides who were fleeing the House chamber. Prosecutors did not identify the officer. [emphasis added]
“The slaying of the 35-year-old California native became one of the defining moments of the riot, after graphic videos of her shooting spread across social media and were replayed by news outlets.
“Prosecutors notified a representative of Babbitt’s family of its findings Wednesday, the office of Acting U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips of Washington, D.C., said in a statement. The statement said the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Department of Justice have closed the investigation, “acknowledging the tragic loss of life and offering condolences” to Babbitt’s family.” [emphasis added]
