NBC news is reporting that the officer who shot and killed insurrectionist Ashley Babbitt has been cleared by an internal investigation, according to a department memo.
Babbitt was shot and killed while she participated in storming the capitol on January 6th, while her accomplices were trying to break through a door leading to the House chamber where members of Congress were being evacuated. An unnamed officer shot through the window she was trying to climb through, killing her.
QAnon, Traitor Trump and the right wing media complex have been trying to turn Babbitt into a martyr/ folk hero so they can rewrite what happened on January 6, 2021.
Trump defended those that attacked the US Capitol and their attempt to overthrow a newly elected president in July.
"The person that shot Ashley Babbitt. Boom! Right through the head, just boom. There was no reason for that," he said, relishing a little too much his description of the moment of Babbitt's untimely death.
Republican Congressman Paul Gosar claimed Babbitt was executed.
It won't be long before politicians like Jim Jordan start attacking this decision and demand new hearings against the officer who protected the US Capitol against domestic terrorists.
Unfortunately, I imagine one of these thugs in Congress will leak the name of the officer.
