TFG Asks 'Who Killed Ashli Babbitt?' -- Just After RWNJ Outlet Alleges it Was Pence's Security Detail

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on Thursday asking for the identity of a security official who killed a participant in January’s unrest in the nation’s capital — just after a conservative website claimed it may have an answer.

“Who shot Ashli Babbitt?” Trump said in an afternoon email distributed by his Save America political action committee. The four-word message was titled, “Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America.”

Trump’s query came just after a report published the previous evening from an anonymous British Spectator author known as “Cockburn,” who suggested the culprit might be a member of former Vice President Mike Pence’s security detail.

“Sources close to and within the intelligence community tell Cockburn that Babbitt was actually shot by a member of then-vice president Mike Pence’s protective detail,” the publication said. “The VP’s detail, of course, is provided by U.S. Secret Service, not the Capitol Police. One person asserted to Cockburn over drinks in D.C. that this is ‘basically an open secret’ in the intelligence community.”

You mean the treasonous assclown who was illegally trying to climb through a broken window to get into the capitol building?
Maybe...just maybe... she should have practiced some of that personal responsibility the republikkans are famous for throwing around

7. The Only Thing Done Wrong...

...was to only shoot one of them instead of doing something sensible by warning the mob that the police would open fire if they crossed the barricades and then following through if the warning was not heeded.

12. TFG is really & truly trying to get Pence murdered. Other people as well. The female insurrectionist

…has become a martyr for her crimes, and now the orange monster wants to get the security detail/Secret Service/Capitol Police hunted down like dogs.

He’s just evil to the core.

13. Dropping a few paragraphs of Josh Marshall's analysis here so I can save to my journal.

Let’s remember the situation. The Capitol complex is being stormed by a pro-Trump insurrectionary mob set on overturning the results of the election through violence. At this point Capitol Police have lost control of the mob and are in the process of evacuating members of Congress to a secure location. The doors being smashed down are the entrance to the Speaker’s Lobby. On that afternoon that was the last barrier before the insurrectionists got into immediately physical proximity to members of Congress. That was the last line of defense. It’s just a few more yards once you’re past that door.

This is not only the lives of numerous Representatives, Senators and staffers. It’s also multiple members of the succession to the Presidency: the Vice President, the Speaker of the House, etc. So it’s numerous individual lives and the continuity of government itself.

The video footage we’ve all seen shows one officer inside the entrance way guarding the door. With his pistol visibly drawn and aimed at the insurrectionists beating on the door he repeatedly warns the mob banging on the door to come no further. At this point Babbitt breaks through the upper window panel on the door and is shot. The single shot proved fatal.

The foundational justification for the Capitol Police to have firearms is to protect Congress – individual lives and institution – and the orderly functioning of the United States government. This standoff clearly and immediately implicated both those core missions. Babbitt ignored repeated warnings and the visible threat of lethal force.
