The irregularities surrounding the January 6 “insurrection” continue to pile up.
Now, President Trump is just weighing in, issuing a cryptic statement about Ashli Babbitt.
Keep in mind…
It’s been 6 months since January 6th.
Not once in those six months has President Trump mentioned or referenced Ashli Babbitt.
Now… Trump not only releases an official press release about her, he makes his press release different from every other one he’s published before!
Take a look:
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.

Have you ever noticed that President Trump never asks a question unless he already knows the answer?
Trump is a shrewd businessman.
He would never question something without knowing something about the outcome.
Remember, while the media and the Democrat party called January 6th an “insurrection,” the ONLY person who died of violence was Ashli Babbitt.
A Trump supporter.
Getting to the bottom of January 6 is critical to expose the deep state.
The Daily Caller confirms Trump’s cryptic statement:
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 press release is also cryptic because of how short it is.
Every other press release or statement from President Trump has always been a few paragraphs or even a few pages.
This statement is one simple sentence.
President Trump must have some more insight on what happened.

If an unarmed black man was killed by a police officer, don’t you think we would know that officer’s name?
Of course we would!
It would be all over the news!
Yet an officer shoots an unarmed white woman, and no one blinks an eye?!
To make matters worse, she was a true patriot because she served our country in the military!
Forbes reports that President Trump is telling the guilty one to self-identify:
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.
There is much about January 6th that needs to be explained.
And one of the easiest places to start is: who killed Ashli Babbitt?
