The most horrific event of January 6th was the unjustified shooting of United States veteran Ashli Babbitt by Michael Byrd, an officer with a controversial past. He faced no consequences despite taking the life of an unarmed American woman.

One thing we do know is that Mr. Byrd made a false radio report immediately after killing Ashli Babbitt.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: After Shooting Ashli Babbitt, Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd Made FALSE Radio Report..

U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, within a minute of discharging the bullet that fatally wounded Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, transmitted a radio message asserting that he was under gunfire in the Speaker’s Lobby and declared his readiness to “fire back,” according to Federal lawsuit.


“In fact, no shots were fired at Lt. Byrd or his fellow officers.”

“The only shot fired was the single shot Lt. Byrd fired at Ashli. He heard the loud noise of the gunshot. He saw her fall backward from the window frame.”

Will Ashli Babbitt’s family ever find justice? The depth of the cover-up surrounding her death is staggering. However, one thing seems certain: while Michael Byrd might never stand trial before his peers, the Capitol Police and the U.S. government are looking at a potential payout of upwards of $30 million for their role in that tragic incident.

Tom Fitton, the respected president of Judicial Watch, is championing the Babbitt family’s quest for justice.

In a recent interview with Steve Bannon, Fitton unveiled some disturbing revelations about Michael Byrd (the shooter on January 6th). Byrd was responsible for the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt, a 36-year-old who, according to the family, was trying to stop others from entering through a breached window. Fitton alleges that Byrd, known for his questionable and reckless professional history, is hiding even more damning secrets. Would anyone be shocked to hear that Byrd’s past is possibly more troubled than first realized?

It’s true; Fitton has uncovered even more ineptitude in Byrd’s professional past and has come to the conclusion that Ashli Babbitt’s death was not only unjustifiable, but it was also negligent.

Fitton breaks down the details with Steve Bannon on War Room:

It’s still a big question as to why no one’s dug deep into Ashli Babbitt’s death. The hope now is that this civil trial will shine some light on new evidence and kickstart more investigations into what actually happened to her. This was a young, unarmed American woman we’re talking about—this kind of unspeakable act shouldn’t happen in the United States. But with the way things are going under the current regime, the America we once knew feels like it’s slipping away.
