Mother of Murdered Patriot Ashli Babbitt Demands Accountability for Capitol Police on One-Year Anniversary of Jan. 6
The mother of Ashli Babbitt, the patriotic martyr who was murdered in cold blood by a federal thug in the U.S. Capitol, is speaking out on the one-year anniversary of the infamous rally.
Micki Wittehoeft, Babbitt’s mother, appeared alongside Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) to give heartfelt words about her daughter and champion her legacy.
“She served this country her whole adult life. She loved God, loved America, loved her family, and came to D.C. to hear Donald Trump speak about a stolen election,” Wittehoeft said, adding that Babbitt was “murdered by a careless, wreckless Capitol police officer, Michael Byrd, who should have been fired two years ago for leaving his loaded weapon in a public restroom.”
She added that reforms need to come to the Capitol police, who “operate with impunity” and are “not subject to FOIA” or “subject to transparency.”
“They are another arm of Congress, and they don’t answer to an external review like every other police department in this country,” Wittehoeft said.
“My daughter was an amazing, energetic, independent, powerful woman,” she added, holding back tears. “And I miss her everyday, and I’m here because Americans do have the right to protest. It is your right as an American citizen to protest.”
Wittehoeft sent a pointed message to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as well for abusing her authority and refusing to release security footage that would illuminate exactly what happened on Jan. 6.
“You’re not the queen, Nancy Pelosi. This is America’s 14,000 hours of missing footage. We have a right to see it… We have political prisoners in jail, in America, not in some third-world country. We have political prisoners to this day in solitary confinement, being denied the due process, most of them veterans, that they fought for,” she said.
The clip from the press conference can be seen here:
Big League Politics reported on the nauseating and revolting sham hearings from Capitol police, who recited lines of rehearsed propaganda to demonize American patriots as a domestic terror threat:
“On Tuesday, the sham hearings about the mostly-peaceful protest in and around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 began in the U.S. House, and they are even more revolting than expected.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called on Capitol Police officers who recited lines prepared to justify a sustained unconstitutional crackdown against Trump supporters. Having failed completely to secure the Capitol on Jan. 6, they want the focus off of their own incompetence on that fateful day.
DC Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone poured on the histrionics, comparing what he experienced that day to “Hell”:
DC Metropolitan Police Officer Daniel Hodges said that he considers Trump supporters as terrorists in his carefully choreographed testimony:
U.S. Capitol Police Sgt. Aquilino Gonell recited partisan talking points on cue to demonize Trump on behalf of the Democrats in charge:
DC Metropolitan Police Officer Harry Dunn did his best Jussie Smollett impression, conjuring from whole cloth a story about evil MAGA racists that sounds like a yarn from a liberal cat lady’s Twitter page:
… These sham hearings are being used to create the basis for all Trump supporters to be treated like the Jan. 6 political prisoners. Patriotic Americans will have to rise up to defeat this Soviet-style takeover of the Republic.”
Babbitt’s untimely death is not in vain. She will be remembered for her heroism for many generations to come.
