Tucker Carlson: Why Didn't Investigators Interview Capitol Hill Police Officer That Killed Ashli Babbitt?

Tucker Carlson asks why Congress and investigators did not interview the Capitol Hill police officer that killed Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, on Wednesday's broadcast of his Fox News program.

 

 

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: In an investigation of a shooting death, any shooting death the first step is always to speak to the person who pulled the trigger. That's not always possible, obviously but it is always the goal. Every time. Naturally, everyone assumed that would happen in the case of Michael Byrd, he's the one who killed an unarmed woman called Ashli Babbitt without warning in the Capitol last January 6th. Byrd is a senior Capitol Hill police officer. He has a documented and a public history of dangerous and reckless behavior with a firearm. So obviously, investigators would interview Michael Byrd as they tried to determine whether actually Babbitt's killing was justified. No one doubted that. But today we learn that never happened. According to officials in the Washington, D.C. police department, Byrd was never interviewed by investigators. Byrd never gave a statement about what he had done. It all comes from a shocking new piece in RealClear Investigations that reveals Byrd did not even invoke his Fifth Amendment right to silence. The FBI And D.C. Police just didn't talk to him. Apparently, they didn't want to. They didn't want the details.

 

And this left Michael Byrd free to conduct his own personal publicity tour which he promptly did with the collusion of an anchor on "NBC News:snip:

Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes charged with ‘seditious conspiracy’ related to Capitol riot

The Justice Department announced on Thursday that Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes and 10 others were charged with “seditious conspiracy” related to the Capitol riot of Jan. 6, 2021.

Prosecutors revealed that Rhodes and the other defendants were accused of seditious conspiracy and other crimes “related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, which disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress that was in the process of ascertaining and counting the electoral votes related to the presidential election.”:snip:

Ray Epps uncharged in Capitol riot, but feds arrested woman engaged in similar conduct

Defenders of Ray Epps contend he has not been arrested because he didn't break the law during the Capital riots, but a woman caught on video standing next to him is facing up to a year in prison for being in a "restricted area" — something Epps was also filmed doing.

Raechel Genco was seen on video standing just feet away from Epps on Jan. 6 as he whispered into the ear of her boyfriend, Ryan Samsel, who promptly led a mob that stormed a police barricade. But unlike Samsel, the 38-year-old Pennsylvania woman simply stood by. And unlike Epps, Genco was not seen a day earlier encouraging a crowd to enter the Capitol illegally.:snip:

Capitol Cop Who Shot Ashli Babbitt Refused To Answer Investigators' Questions

:snip:

  • After being cleared by the Department of Justice and the Capitol and District of Columbia police, Byrd went on “NBC Nightly News” to tell anchor Lester Holt that he issued fair warning to Babbitt before firing on shooting the Air Force veteran -- but he never swore that under penalty of perjury to investigators.
  • “He didn’t provide any statement to investigators and they didn’t push him to make a statement,” Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts told RCI, calling the probe a “whitewash.”
  • Byrd did not invoke his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, which makes the reluctance of authorities to lean on him or sanction him for not cooperating all the more puzzling.
  • Documents reveal that eyewitnesses — including three cops — told investigators they did not hear Byrd give Babbitt any warnings, contradicting what Byrd told NBC.
  • Byrd admitted to Holt that he never actually saw Babbitt brandish a weapon -- a fact that use-of-force experts writing for the Lawfare blog found problematic.
  • The Democrat-dominated House Jan. 6 panel has not explored the Babbitt killing -- the worst violence of the day and one of the most high-profile officer-involved shooting cases in U.S. history.
  • Meanwhile, the feds have thrown the book at suspected Capitol rioters.:snip:

They got *scared, then they screwed up, now they a covering up.

* These a (supposedly) professionals with years of training and experience. Now I'm speaking as someone with A Little training and no experience i crowd control.  Every Cop i this photo screwed up, is acting wrong, are out of position to defend this room. They are acting like a bunch civilians.

Everyday at guard mount we were told Never Fire Your Weapon Unless you Know where the round is going. Byrd didn't. He Couldn't. He fired blindly into a crowd, because he was scared.

There has to be a reason why officers that took place in this incident committed suicide. I don't believe in coincidence. A lot of people that choose to be officers have a moral code. When they know they have broken that moral code and can't do anything about it, it eats away at them

Possibly. My larger point is I don't believe for one minute they Really investigated this.

Republicans focus on Jan. 6 inmate treatment during House hearing

Republican interest in the treatment of people charged in connection to the Capitol riot detained in Washington, D.C., jails is not just limited to firebrand Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, as House Republicans made it a top priority during a congressional hearing Friday.

Julie Kelly, a senior writer at American Greatness and self-described “Jan. 6 truth seeker,” was a witness selected by Republicans on Friday at a House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security hearing that aimed to examine the First Step Act, prison responses to the coronavirus pandemic, and “compassionate release.”:snip:
