President Trump asks who shot Ashli Babbitt. Every American should know who shot Ashli Babbitt. An unarmed young woman was shot at point-blank range and killed for trespassing. Any cop in this country they did that anywhere else would already be in prison. pic.twitter.com/2UKmhrIzEc

At the rally in Sarasota in next month, Trump should address the unfair and inhuman treatment of the Jan. 6th Defendants.
The Swamp trashed the MAGA Grandmas and killed Ashi Babbitt.
Trump needs to stand up for the Deplorables.

Trump never asks questions if he doesn’t know the answer. The media and the Dems called the January 6 event an insurrection, and only Ashli Babbitt died.
The Daily Caller reported:
Former President Donald Trump released a short statement Thursday regarding the shooter of Ashli Babbitt.
Babbitt, a 14-year U.S. Air Force veteran, was fatally shot in the left shoulder at the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. A law enforcement official claimed that a U.S. Capitol Police officer shot her, NPR reported in January.
“Who shot Ashli Babbitt?” the former president’s statement wrote.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia’s Police Corruption and Civil Rights Section and the Civil Rights Division conducted an investigation into the officer-related shooting of Babbitt, according to NPR. The Department of Justice announced April 14 that there was not sufficient evidence to bring forth criminal charges against the unidentified officer that shot Babbitt.
Babbitt’s husband, Aaron, filed a request in order to obtain information regarding his wife’s death, including the name of the officer that shot her.
Newly released information alleges that a U.S. Secret Service member for former Vice President Mike Pence shot Babbitt, sources within and close to the intelligence community told Cockburn of The Spectator. However, footage showed that Pence and Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney had escaped the Senate chamber moments before the rioters reached the floor, Fox 5 reported.
This time his press release was very short. All others have been numerous paragraphs long. Now, it’s only one simple sentence.
If one unarmed black man killed by a police officer event occurred, I think that we would know his name!
#Trump is right! Who killed unarmed #AshliBabbitt?

Forbes also covered this story.
Former President Donald Trump on Thursday joined a chorus of right-wing voices calling for the identity of the law enforcement officer who shot and killed Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt as she attempted to breach the House chamber on Jan. 6, which the Justice Department determined was an act of “self-defense.”
The DOJ announced in April it would not bring criminal charges against the officer who shot Babbitt, determining there was “insufficient evidence” that they violated civil rights laws. The investigation determined the officer reasonably believed the shooting was necessary “in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber.”
“Trump knows that if this person’s identity is revealed, they will immediately be in extreme danger from his following. He just doesn’t care,” Mike Rothschild, an expert on conspiracy theories and author of “The Storm Is Upon Us,” a book about the right-wing QAnon conspiracy movement, told Forbes, calling the statement “incredibly disturbing.”
68%. That the share of Republicans who said there has been “too much focus” on the Capitol attack in a Morning Consult poll released Monday. Only 25% of Republicans say the rioters are representative of Trump, while 30% say they hold Trump at least somewhat responsible for the attack.
The House is moving ahead with an investigation into the attack after Senate Republicans blocked an independent commission last month. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the chair of the Jan. 6 select committee, said there is “no timeline” for the probe.
