Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues To Learn Identity of Shooter From January 6


With the crickets from the government and lamestream media, it sure seems like they are trying to hide the truth about Ashli Babbitt.

The mainstream media has been silent about Ashli Babbitt’s unnecessary death on January 6 at the Capitol in Washington D.C. 

The Department of Justice also decided not to press charges on the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt.

So many questions remain unanswered about her death, such as whether the use of deadly force on Ms. Babbitt was warranted.

The Babbitt family deserves not only answers but justice! 

In their quest for justice, the Babbitt family has filed a lawsuit against The District of Columbia to obtain the identity of the USCP Lieutenant that shot and killed Ashli Babbitt. 

Terry Roberts, the attorney for the Babbitt family, came on Real America’s Voice to discuss the lawsuit back at the end of April when they were in the beginning stages. 

The civil suit, he said, rests on the claim that the officer violated Ashli Babbitt’s constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizures of the Fourth Amendment.

Essentially, that the use of deadly force was unreasonable.

Which it was!

We have the full interview with the Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts from Rumble below:

The Epoch Times has more on the Babbitt family’s lawsuit:

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is being sued by the family of Ashli Babbitt to learn the identity of the law enforcement officer who fatally shot her in Washington on Jan. 6.

In a seven-page document filed last week in District of Columbia court, relative Aaron Babbitt asked a judge to compel the MPD, Washington’s police force, to search for and hand over records he sought in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The records include video footage of the shooting of Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol, documents that identify the officer who shot her, and police training records of said officer.

The plaintiff submitted the request on April 21 and the MPD acknowledged receipt on the same day, according to the lawsuit. But as of June 4, the department has failed to produce the requested records or demonstrate that it’s lawfully exempt from having to produce them.

Under Washington code, the MPD was required to do one or the other within 15 business days, or by May 12.

Alleging a FOIA violation, Aaron Babbitt is asking the court through his lawyer, Terrell Roberts, to order the MPD to conduct searches for all the records requested and order the defendants to produce by a certain date all nonexempt records, and asks the court to block the police agency from continuing to withhold the records.

The lawsuit should be merged with a similar action filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, the filing states.

An MPD spokeswoman told The Epoch Times in an email that the department doesn’t comment on pending litigation.

The U.S. Capitol Police and the law firm representing the officer who shot Babbitt didn’t return requests for comment.

The officer who killed Babbitt works for the U.S. Capitol Police, according to federal officials. The Department of Justice in April said prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against the officer because officials “determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”

The officer, through his attorneys, has defended his actions, which were captured on video footage in the chaos that ensued when various groups breached the Capitol on Jan. 6. The officer claims he shouted at Babbitt to stop as she attempted to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby, adjacent to the House chamber, but Roberts has alleged there’s no evidence of that having happened.

The new action is part of an effort to collect records before filing a lawsuit asserting that the officer violated Babbitt’s constitutional rights, Roberts told The Epoch Times.

“It’s commonly done in cases like this where you can get access to police records and things like that through FOIA actions,” he said.

“The complication here is that the Capitol Police are not subject to FOIA. However, they used the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to conduct their investigation. In other words, the United States Attorney’s Office did a criminal investigation and relied upon the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct their factual investigation. And so now that they’ve decided against bringing charges, I am going to seek any kind of records that they may have collected in their investigation, including any records which identify the officer.”

There’s currently no timeline for bringing the lawsuit asserting constitutional violations.

A scheduling conference in the new lawsuit is slated to take place on Sept. 3, according to court records. Superior Court Judge Florence Pan is scheduled to hear the case.

Why can’t the Babbitt family find out more information about Ashli’s death on January 6?

Furthermore, why does the video surveillance need to be FOIA requested to be seen?

What is the government trying to hide?

It must be something big because, at a rally over the weekend to remember Ashli Babbitt, Antifa showed up and tried to cause chaos AGAIN!

Antifa even quickly organized via Twitter to disrupt and cause chaos:

Why would Antifa want to disrupt Ashli Babbitt’s peaceful memorial?

Maybe because they were the ones involved on January 6?

God willing, the lawsuit will answer questions surrounding January 6, hopefully giving the Babbitt family a sense of justice for Ashli’s premature death.
