There is a lot of mystery surrounding what happened at the Capitol on January 6th…and I don’t mean “cool mystery,” either. It’s sinister and something feels off about the whole thing.
On one hand, you have police shooting Trump supporters, and on another, you have Capitol cops playing “tour guides” letting everyone in and escorting them around the place.
And on top of all that, we hear there were “stand-down” orders for police – was that to create as much of a melee as possible?
And what about all the fake news surrounding the event? We were told by New York Times that Officer Brian Sicknick was beaten to death by a Trump supporter.
Turns out he died of natural causes.
But it wasn’t just the Times who got it wrong.
The Capitol police did as well – they claimed their own office had been physically “injured” injured the melee and that’s how he died. That never happened, the medical examiner said Officer Sicknick had no injuries on his body whatsoever.
So what gives? Well, that’s what Senator Ron Johnson wants to know. Just The News is reporting that Johnson is now demanding that the Capitol Police explain why it initially reported that Officer Brian Sicknick died from injuries sustained in the Jan. 6 riot when in fact his death was ruled to be naturally caused by strokes.
“The death of any police officer is a tragedy and the use of any officer’s death for political purposes or to create a false narrative is reprehensible and disrespectful to the officer’s family and the officer’s memory,” Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., wrote in a letter to Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda D. Pittman.
Johnson’s letter specifically zeroed in on a Jan. 7 statement the police force issued claiming Sicknick died from “injuries sustained while on-duty after physically engaging with protestors” during the riot.
The senator noted earlier this week that the Washington DC Chief Medical Examiner Francisco Diaz concluded that Sicknick “suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters” and that his body exhibited “no evidence of internal or external injuries.”
Johnson, the top Republican on the powerful Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, also challenged subsequent reporting claiming Sicknick may have suffered a fatal reaction and died from bear pepper spray dispersed by the rioters.
“Dr. Diaz stated that Sicknick’s autopsy found no evidence that he suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants,” Johnson wrote.
Johnson suggested the initial police statement and erroneous reporting led to “false reports” in the public — including that he was fatally struck by a fire extinguisher — that persisted for three months until the autopsy findings.
And while we’re at it, it’d be nice to know why Ashli Babbitt was murdered in cold bold by an office, and we’d also like to know his name.
Everything about Jan 6th is shrouded in a dark cloud of suspicion – but that’s the way everything is nowadays with our government, right?
