For the past several weeks Ashli Babbitt’s mother, Micki Witthoeft, has been holding a vigil in front of the DC Gitmo, the Washington DC prison holding the political prisoners from January 6, 2021 protests.
The political prisoners at DC Gitmo are awaiting trial after being held for over a year now under horrendous conditions in the Washington prison for January 6 protesters.
Micki Witthoeft is a board member of Citizens Against Political Persecution. TGP contributor Cara Castronuova is the co-Founder and President of the group.
Micki’s daughter Ashli was shot in cold blood by DC police officer Lt. Michael Byrd on January 6th when he shot her in the neck without warning. Lt. Byrd is still working in the US Capitol and is reportedly still armed. He considers himself a victim.
For several days Micki has been holding a vigil outside of the DC Gitmo in support of the human rights of the political prisoners.
Micki told The Gateway Pundit, “I know if my daughter Ashli was alive this is exactly where she would be, outside the steps of the jail. That’s why I am here. For my daughter.”
On Sunday Micki held another gathering outside of the DC Gitmo. During the session political prisoner John Mellis called in and thanked several people and organizations who supported the detainees.
John thanked Cara, the AmericanGulag, and The Gateway Pundit for our support.
John Mellis, “I’d like to give a shoutout to some of our outstanding supporters, the good people who have given up so much to support us. I want everyone to know that we love them. So I’ll just go down a list. Professor David Clements. Dave Sommerall… Cara Castronuova from CAPP… Nick and Laura from American Gulag… And I have to give a special thanks to Jim Hoft, Kelly Wilde and Cara for helping us raise, and The Gateway Pundit readers ESPECIALLY, for helping us raise almost $2 million directly and that went directly into our GiveSendGo accounts.
Thank you, Gateway Pundit readers for being the most generous audience on the internet and for supporting those persecuted by the Department of Justice and the Biden Administration!
Thank you so very much!
