DOJ, Capitol Police, Pelosi and Media Outlets Have Kept His Identity Secret
President Donald Trump joined a growing group of millions of Americans who want to know the name of the officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt while at the U.S. Capitol during the January 6 security breach.
Babbitt was shot through a glass pane of a door inside the Federal Building, one of five people who lost their lives that day.
In June, the Justice Department closed the investigation of the Capitol police officer who shot her, exonerating him of all wrongdoing. However, her family has filed a lawsuit to obtain the officer’s records and is seeking more than $10 million for her death.
Trump asked, “Who shot Ashli Babbitt?” to his Sarasota, FL rally crowd of over 25,000 and hundreds of thousands of viewers who watched it streamed live Saturday.
Michael Leroy Byrd
Although Deep State operatives and Mainstream Media have attempted to bury information about the killing of Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, insiders say it was Capitol Police Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd.
In fact, Byrd is reportedly not living at his residence in Brandywine, Maryland or driving his 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe since shortly after the killing.
In April, the Biden Justice Department announced that their investigation conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia determined “that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”
Insiders say it was Byrd who fatally shot Babbitt, 35, an Air Force veteran from San Diego. The Justice Department’s decision, though expected, officially closes out the investigation.
Video Evidence Revealed
Initially prosecutors said they came to their conclusion after reviewing video of the shooting, along with statements from other officers and witnesses, examined physical evidence from the scene and reviewed the autopsy results.
Unfortunately for the DOJ’s version, too many Americans have seen plenty of video footage to strongly disagree.
🔹Especially concerning was “the video by the guy trailing the blood soaked gurney as it was wheeled down the hall and then down 2 long ramps to the ambulance,” posted one viewer. !”All the while every 3 feet big drops of blood were splashing to the concrete. TATTOOING OUR SACRED CAPITOL and so this monster did no wrong.”
🔹Another viewer revealed this “so called ‘insurrection’ was staged by the FBI with the help of Antifa. The first six guys through the window were agents in full tactical gear. Then there’s all the footage of Antifa changing into Trump gear. Also, what about all the Capitol Police guiding and waving citizens into open unlocked doors?”
🔹A third viewer noted “the video clearly show she was standing with a group behind locked double doors that also had chairs piled up on the opposite side of the doors that the group was standing on. The video also shows the murderer targeting her with his pistol. He claimed he shot her because she was wearing a backpack. It was only after the criminals who set up the murder that the story changed. That was after the perpetrators found out there was video of the entire incident.”
Witnesses Jailed and Abused?
Critics point out that some of the witnesses have been locked up and controlled in a Washington D.C. jail, charged as suspects in the investigation breach on Jan. 6.
These “suspects” attorneys indicate they are being beaten, mistreated and abused by jail guards where they suffer solitary confinement for 23 to 24 hours a day in small cells.
Richard ‘Bigo’ Barnett, known for putting his feet up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk, told the Daily Mail they eat ‘slop’ and “keep up morale by singing the national anthem and reciting the pledge of allegiance.”
“Specifically, the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber,” prosecutors said.
Since their initial statement, more videos and witnesses have surfaced countering the Justice Department’s conclusion.
In particular, photo and film images reveal the bracelet of beads on Byrd’s hand is identical to the man that fatally shot the decorated Airforce veteran, Babbitt.
Independent journalist Tayler Hansen was the first to publicly identify Byrd as the killer.
Babbitt Family Sues
Two weeks later, attorney Terry Roberts had been hired by the Babbitt family to sue the Capitol Police. He argued that the officer in question had not been charged for alleged use of excessive force because of the politics surrounding the case.
Babbitt was unarmed. Videos proved it. She died of a gunshot wound to the left shoulder, according to the D.C. Medical Examiner’s office.
Attorney Roberts is pursuing a civil action on behalf of the family alleging a violation of Babbitt’s constitutional rights.
“I’m handling the civil action that will be filed, that’s my role,” Roberts said. “The family and I were disappointed in the Department of Justice’s decision on this, but my role is, really, to bring a civil action and in that way, vindicate her rights.”
“We think the evidence is ample and supports criminal charges against the officer,” Roberts said, indicating the officer could see that Babbitt was not armed and offered her no warning.
“This is a situation in which the officer could have easily arrested her, if he had grounds to arrest her, without using deadly force,” he said. “So, this was an egregious act of excessive force and he should have been charged.”
Asked if the family believed that “politics” is a factor in the case, noting that Babbitt was a Trump supporter, Roberts responded, “Clearly, that has everything to do with it, unfortunately. It shouldn’t.”
Fake Dossier Lawyer
What happened to Byrd? Somehow he managed to retain powerful Washington lawyer Mark E. Schamel.
Who is Schamel? The Washington Times described him as the attorney of “the shadowy figure who funneled information to Christopher Steele for his notorious election-year dossier,” Igor Danchenko, a Ukraine-born, Russian-educated researcher who worked in the U.S. and “traveled to Moscow to find supposed dirt on candidate Donald Trump.”
Danchenko was on the payroll of Steele’s investigative firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, in London. He also worked at the Brookings Institution and was a British intelligence officer.
“Danchenko met Mr. Steele in London as he was setting up Orbis and eventually landed on its payroll,” the Times reported. “Mr. Steele asked him in 2016 to investigate Mr. Trump and Russia. Mr. Steele’s work was funded by the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton campaign.”
Of course, after Democrats spent $148 million on the Mueller Investigation–not to mention Mainstream Media’s Russia-Russia-Russia Hoax–we learned all of it was proved untrue. There were no firsthand Russian sources.
2019: Glock Left in Restroom
Meanwhile, a Feb. 2019 Fox News reported Byrd was under review “after somehow leaving his Glock 22 pistol inside the bathroom of the structure’s visitor center.”
“Lt. Mike Byrd forgot to take the weapon with him upon leaving the restroom Monday and it was found “during a routine security sweep” later in the day, officials told Roll Call.
“Byrd is the leader of the House Chambers section of the department and was reportedly back on the job in the days after the incident. He allegedly told his colleagues he ‘will be treated differently’ because of his rank, sources told Roll Call, although it wasn’t immediately clear what he may have meant by the comment.”
Babbitt: Air Force Veteran
Babbitt was a 14-year military veteran who served four tours with the U.S. Air Force and was a high level security official throughout her time in service. Babbitt served in the U.S. Air Force under the name of Ashli Elizabeth McEntee.
McEntee was the surname of her first husband of many years. They divorced in May 2019. She married Aaron Babbitt, a former U.S. Marine, the following month. Veterans Aaron and Ashli had a pool service business in San Diego, according to reports.
She left active duty in April 2008 and served in the Air Force Reserve from 2008 to 2010 and then served in the Air National Guard until 2016, according to records.
