Democrats should now be able to differentiate from what took place on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol Building and what recently occurred in Afghanistan. One of those events was a true insurrection, the other was not.
Ashli Babbitt lost her life not long after police officers literally ushered patriots into the Capitol Building.
Now, her killer is off the hook.
From The Daily Wire:
The Capitol police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt during the Capitol riot on January 6 has reportedly been formally exonerated after the Capitol Police conducted an internal investigation, according to an internal document.
A memo from the commander of the Capitol Police’s Office of Personal Responsibility obtained by NBC News says that “no further action will be taken in this matter” after the officer was exonerated for his use of force, the outlet reported.
There are now no remaining open investigations into Babbitt’s shooting.
In April, the Justice Department announced that it would not pursue criminal charges against the officer, saying that it did not find that the officer had violated any federal laws. The officer’s name has not been made public.
“Officials examined video footage posted on social media, statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses to the events, physical evidence from the scene of the shooting, and the results of an autopsy,” the Justice Department said in an April 14 press release on its decision. “Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”
