Lawyer For Ashli Babbitt Claims She Was “Ambushed”


There is STILL NO JUSTICE For Ashli Babbitt.

When will we get a clear picture of what happened? So far we have only had rumors and speculation as to what might have happened.

We don’t even have an official name yet, and many have even suspected the alleged shooter to be a member of Mike Pence’s security detail.

Still, we are really just left with more questions than answers.

Could the shooter in question be Officer Byrd, or someone else?

Was Ashli unfairly ambushed that day?

Her lawyer seems to think so, and claims that she posed little to no threat.

Here are some reports supporting the theory that Ashli was ambushed:

Just The News had more on the story:

“It’s not debatable,” Roberts said. “There was no warning. … I would call what he did an ambush.”

The Babbitt family and others are reportedly upset that the first hearing of the Democrat-led House select committee on Jan. 6 didn’t address Babbitt’s death.

The 35-year-old Babbitt was fatally shot as she attempted to climb through a broken window in a barricaded door leading to the restricted Speaker’s Lobby, off the House floor.

The unarmed Babbitt was an Air Force veteran and San Diego native.

Babbitt’s lawyer made these comments which appeared in a piece featured by Real Clear Investigations:

“His trigger finger shouldn’t be inside the trigger guard and the gun shouldn’t be pointed at other officers. He’s even pointing it in the direction of a member of Congress,” the fellow officer said, referring to Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.), a former professional mixed-martial-arts fighter who had joined the scrum in front of the chamber doors.

“I can’t tell you how many officers have contacted me to say that what that guy did doesn’t pass muster,” Roberts said in an extensive interview. “No one has come forward to say this was justified homicide, not even the Justice Department.”

“The way he did it — hiding in a room and then popping out and firing — is a problem,” Roberts added. “If his objective was to stop her, he didn’t need to shoot. He could have got out in front of her and used a number of other methods of less-lethal force. He could have tried to cuff her.”

Police have confirmed that Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was unarmed. (If arrested, she would have faced unlawful entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds charges, police sources say.) “I would call what he did an ambush,” Roberts continued, “I don’t think he’s a good officer. I think he’s reckless.”
