Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt exonerated in internal probe

Source: NBC

The Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt outside a door of the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot has been formally exonerated after an internal investigation, according to a department memo obtained by NBC News.

The officer, whose name has not been released, opened fire on Babbitt as she and a mob of other Trump supporters tried to forcefully enter the Capitol.

Video of the shooting showed Babbitt in front of a crowd of rioters trying to get through a door leading to where members of Congress were being evacuated on the House side of the building.

The Justice Department announced in April that no charges were being brought against the officer. The exoneration by the Capitol Police wraps up the last remaining investigation into the incident.

2. Irony Squared

 

Usually, I'd be incensed about a cop getting cleared after fatally shooting a non-packing civilian. But not this time!

3. I can't imagine being a Capitol Security officer on 1/9. The restraint showed may never

happen again. And they showed tremendous restraint. I would not have, were I in their shoes.
