  • Cop Who Killed Ashli Babbitt Was Cleared of Criminal Wrongdoing Without Interview

    When U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd went on “NBC Nightly News” to tell his side of shooting and killing unarmed Jan. 6 rioter Ashli Babbitt, he made a point to note he’d been investigated by several agencies and exonerated for his actions that day. “There’s an investigative process [and] I was cleared by the DOJ [Department of Justice], and FBI and [the D.C.] Metropolitan Police,” he told NBC News anchor Lester Holt in August, adding that the Capitol Police also cleared him of wrongdoing and decided not to discipline or demote him for the shooting. Byrd then answered a...

    In August Lt. Mike Byrd was exonerated for killing Ashli Babbitt in cold blood. He gave no warning, he ran from the scene of the crime, he shot an unarmed woman dead who posed no threat. And now he walks free. Greg Kelly suggested on Monday that trigger-happy Lt. Mike Byrd will work on Saturday at the Conservative “Justice for J6” rally on Saturday. Greg Kelly went on to say that unrepentant killer Mike Byrd may even be armed again.

    Michael Byrd is a coward. Byrd, however, fancies himself a hero.“Once we barricaded the doors, we were essentially trapped where we were,” Byrd said in an exclusive interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, speaking publicly for the first time since the riot. “There was no way to retreat. No other way to get out. “If they get through that door, they’re into the House chamber and upon the members of Congress,” added Byrd, who gave NBC News permission to use his name after authorities had declined to release it. He claims he warned her He said he yelled repeatedly for...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/27/2021 | Monica Showalter
    After months of supposed hiding, the Capitol Hill cop who shot unarmed pro-Trump protestor Ashli Babbitt at the Capitol, Lt. Michael Byrd has come out of the woodwork to talk about his shooting, in a softball interview with NBC's Lester Holt. Which is weird stuff, given that for months his identity had been concealed, by investigators, Congress, and other supposed watchdogs, on the grounds that revealing it to angry Trump supporters was too dangerous, and whose investigative conclusions excused him from accountability. Now he's come out -- telling Lester Holt of his great heroics. He doesn't even need to, having...

    For more than seven months, the U.S. Capitol Police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed protester climbing through a broken window in a hallway of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, has remained anonymous. Though his name was known to U.S. Capitol Police, congressional staffers and federal investigations, no one would divulge it. The secrecy fueled months of online speculation. Babbitt's family alleged a coverup.... ..."The U.S. Congress wants to protect this man. He's got friends in high places and they want to protect him," said Maryland attorney Terry Roberts, who represents the family....Roberts told Zenger Wednesday...

    The Epoch Times ^ | July 9, 2021 Updated: July 9, 2021 | REALCLEARINVESTIGATIONS
    Most police departments—including Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police—are required to release an officer’s name within days of a fatal shooting. Not the U.S. Capitol Police, which is controlled by Congress and answers only to Congress. It can keep the public in the dark about the identity and investigation of an officer involved in a shooting indefinitely. Which is what happened with the Jan. 6 shooting of Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed protester in the U.S. Capitol riot who was fatally wounded by a plainclothes police lieutenant as she attempted to breach a set of doors inside the building. For the past six...

    Freelance reporter Tayler Hansen was at the Capitol building covering the action as it unfolded on Jan. 6. According to a RealClearInvestigations report published on Wednesday, Hansen was standing outside the Speaker’s Lobby with 35-year-old Air Force veteran and Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt when she was shot. In an April 13 Twitter post, Hansen named Lt. Michael L. Byrd as the U.S. Capitol Police officer who shot and killed Babbitt. On Saturday, Hansen posted a C-SPAN video of Timothy Blodgett, the acting sergeant at arms for the House of Representatives, speaking before a Feb. 21 hearing of the House Legislative...

    Byrd, a native of Newport News, Va., was only four weeks out of boot camp on April 28, 2018, when he received his first off-base liberty from Parris Island, S.C. "It was my first time being off of the island," he said in the news release. He traveled to Savannah, Ga., got a motel room and slept late the next day. As Byrd was returning to his room from breakfast that morning and was crossing the lobby, he heard shrieks coming from a hallway behind the reception desk. "The next scream was just horrible," he said. "That scream was enough...

    Ashli Babbitt‘s husband Aaron Babbitt and Attorney Terrell Roberts joined Tucker Carlson in mid-June to discuss the continued challenges they have had getting any information on her death or the identity of her government-employed killer. During the discussion, Tucker Carlson asked Attorney Roberts about the report that Ashli’s shooter also left his loaded gun in a US Capitol restroom Tucker Carlson: Mr. Roberts, let me ask you, there are reports online, that’s incredible I don’t know if they’re true, that the Capitol Hill police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt, I’m not going to mention the name, was the same officer...

    One of the reasons that conspiracy theories and internet sleuthing are on the rise is because there’s a critical breakdown in trust between the public and the government. That breakdown can be organic and it can also be manufactured. Either way, it breeds distrust, suspicion, and drives a frenetic need in the public to uncover the “truth.” We saw that happen in 2016 with the left’s obsession over all things “Russia.” Those conspiracy theories ran amok for four-plus years, and were fueled by political leaders and the mainstream media which convinced a large swath of the public that Vladimir Putin...

    The left's war on history continues. With little pushback from the government, mobs of roving leftists are toppling statues all across the country. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is now calling for a "review" of statues in the United States so that leftists can continue their war on history in an official, government-approved manner. "I would say, rather than tearing down and defacing, why don't we just have a review," Pelosi told The Washington Post during an interview on Thursday. Did Pelosi have a "review" before unilaterally deciding to remove four portraits of former House speakers from the Capitol...

    A private college in West Virginia said Wednesday it is removing the name of the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd from its health center, saying his name had caused “divisiveness and pain" without explicitly noting his complicated past on racial matters. Byrd was a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s but subsequently denounced the organization. He served in the Senate for 51 years and died in 2010 at age 92. Bethany College President Tamara Rodenberg said on the school's website that Byrd's name will be removed from the college's Robert C. Byrd Health Center “to demonstrate...

    Robert C. Byrd's name has been removed from the Bethany College Health Center. The move was prompted by the ongoing national conversations about race relations in America. "The last few weeks, and well before the conversations and calls for change took hold, we recognized as a campus that the name of our Robert C. Byrd Health Center created divisiveness and pain for members of Bethany community, both past and present." According to a letter, posted on the college's website, from President Tamara Rodenberg, Ph.D., the move is "to demonstrate Bethany College’s capacity to change, to listen, and to learn." Byrd,...

    Vice President Joe Biden on Monday remembered the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) as a legend of the upper chamber and a friend who was there for him in a time of need. Biden spoke while discussing the federal stimulus package at a General Electric plant in Louisville, Ky. Biden, who served in the Senate for 36 years, remembered how Byrd showed up to the funeral of his wife and one-year-old daughter after they were killed in a car crash weeks following his 1972 election. The vice president called Byrd "a guy who was there when I was a 29-year-old...
