After nearly a month since unarmed Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed in the Capitol, investigators have recommended no charges for Capitol police officer who fired the shots. However, we still don’t know why his name is kept under wraps.
Far left CNN reported tonight:
Investigators have recommended that prosecutors decline to bring charges against a US Capitol Police officer in the shooting of a pro-Trump rioter who was killed during the insurrection, according to people familiar with the matter.
The shooting of pro-Trump rioter, Ashli Babbitt, remains under investigation by the DC Metropolitan Police, the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC, and civil rights prosecutors, a routine process for shootings involving the Capitol Police. A final decision hasn’t been made, the people familiar with the probe told CNN.Justice Department officials could make a final decision in the coming days.
Babbitt was shot in the Capital and she died along with three other Trump supporters on January 6th at the Capitol. Babbitt was shot in cold blood and she was unarmed. We asked multiple times why the Capitol police officer’s name has not been released.
Some people believe the officer who shot the young unarmed Trump supporter may have been an anti-Trumper and therefore his name is being withheld from the public for that reason.
