The left and their allies in the media rushed to frame the events of January 6th at the US Capitol as a deadly insurrection, in which supporters of President Donald J. Trump’s went on a murderous rampage, “armed to the teeth” as one government worker claimed and killed innocent Democrats, except that is not at all what really happened, and now we have proof.
Ashli Babbitt’s death has been ruled a “homicide” by the DC Medical Examiner. Homicide is defined as “the deliberate and unlawful killing of one person by another; murder.”
“DC chief medical examiner announces cause and manner of death of four people who died during January 6 riot at US Capitol. Autopsy of @CapitolPolice Brian Sicknick still pending,” Neal Augenstein, a reporter for WTOP posted on Twitter.
Glenn Greenwald has covered the story numerous times, and posted about the breaking news, on Wednesday.
New DC Medical Examiner Report:
Of the 5 people whose deaths are connected to the Capitol riot, 4 were pro-Trump supporters:
* 2 of heart attack
* 1 of amphetamine poisoning
* 1 from homicide (Ashli Babbitt)
* Still do not know the "cause and manner of death" for Off. Sicknick. https://t.co/LFNVxFdMRK

The death of Ashli Bobbitt has never been explained to the public, why she was shot down in close range, or who the shooter was.
Greenwald is a famous classic liberal journalist who has been exposing the propaganda by politicians and the media over the events at the US Capitol.
“What took place at the Capitol on January 6 was undoubtedly a politically motivated riot. As such, it should not be controversial to regard it as a dangerous episode. Any time force or violence is introduced into what ought to be the peaceful resolution of political conflicts, it should be lamented and condemned.
But none of that justifies lying about what happened that day, especially by the news media. Condemning that riot does not allow, let alone require, echoing false claims in order to render the event more menacing and serious than it actually was. There is no circumstance or motive that justifies the dissemination of false claims by journalists. The more consequential the event, the less justified, and more harmful, serial journalistic falsehoods are,” Glennwood wrote in his article, The False and Exaggerated Claims Still Being Spread About the Capitol Riot.
“So: 3 months after the NYT & national press corps drowned US discourse over a month with a harrowing but false story about a pro-Trump mob bashing Officer Sicknick’s skull in with a fire extinguisher, they still can’t say what caused his death on Jan 7,” Greenwald wrote on Wednesday in reaction to the announcement by the DC Medical Examiner.
“Also, not only have there been no investigations released or facts given about what the DC Medical Examiner is calling the “homicide” of Ashli Bobbitt — who was unarmed — they still have not even released the name of the officer who fatally shot her in the neck at close range,” he wrote.
Author Julie Kelly wrote about her investigation into the death of Officer Sicnick, which has been used for so much of the left’s mythology about the 6th.
According to Kelly:
“The United States Capitol Police department issued a statement on January 7, just hours after he died. “Officer Brian D. Sicknick passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty,” the press release read. “Officer Sicknick was responding to the riots on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol and was injured while physically engaging with protesters. He returned to his division office and collapsed. He was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.”
Sicknick’s death is a central rallying cry to bolster the narrative that the events of January 6 amounted to a “deadly insurrection” and the perpetrators must be punished accordingly. To produce compelling optics, Sicknick’s remains lay in state in the Capitol rotunda—a somber memorial attended by Joe Biden and his wife as well as lawmakers from both political parties—the weekend before House Democrats launched their second impeachment trial of Donald Trump.”

In an email yesterday, the DC Medical Examiner office told me that although professional guidelines require local officials to find a cause of death within 90 days, the report can be delayed if case is “complex.” Ok… https://t.co/qWykHmNBU6
