Judicial Watch Forces Release of DOJ Memo Declining Criminal Prosecution For Ashli Babbitt Killer Michael Byrd: Babbitt Shooting Evidence Missing!

  • Judicial Watch forced the release of a DOJ memo declining the criminal prosecution for Ashli Babbitt’s killer Michael Byrd.
  • Ashli Babbitt, a 14-year veteran from San Diego who served 4 tours with the US Air Force as a high-level security officer was shot and killed by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 6, 2021.
  • Judicial Watch received a memo on the Jan 6 shooting recommending “that the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia decline for criminal prosecution the fatal shooting of Ashli McEntee [Babbitt],” also noting that the shooter, U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, “did not create a police report or documents” related to the shooting of Babbitt.” the watchdog reported.
  • “The documents also reveal that in the press release announcing the decision not to prosecute Byrd for the killing of Babbitt, the DOJ replaced the words “group” and “crowd” with the word “mob” several times.”
  • “There are several USCP operated Closed-Circuit Television Video (CCTV) cameras inside of the United States Capitol Building. However, there were no CCTV cameras observed or located in the Speaker’s Lobby area.”  the memo states.
  • Judicial Watch reported:

These records show that Lt. Byrd was given special treatment by the Biden DOJ and that there was a miscarriage of justice in the half-baked shooting death investigation of Ashli Babbitt,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Lt. Byrd, who works for Congress, shot an unarmed woman for no good reason. I suspect that this unjustified shooting isn’t of much interest to the Pelosi rump January 6 committee.”

Jim Jordan Alleges The FBI Is Purging Agents With Conservative Views Related To January 6

  • According to House Judiciary Committee Republicans, multiple former FBI officials have suggested the bureau is “purging” employees with conservative viewpoints.
  • Congressman Jim Jordan, a ranking member of the panel, sent a letter to Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday detailing the allegations related to the events of January 6.
  • “In one such example, the FBI targeted and suspended the security clearance of a retired war servicemember who had disclosed personal views that the FBI was not being entirely forthcoming about the events of January 6. The FBI questioned the whistleblower’s allegiance to the United States despite the fact that the whistleblower honorably served in the United States military for several years — including deployments in Kuwait and Iraq — valiantly earning multiple military commendation medals,” a press release for the letter states.
  • “In addition, another whistleblower, who has since left the FBI, has informed us that [REDACTED] faced retaliation for criticizing the FBI in an anonymous survey circulated by the [REDACTED] to employees following January 6,” the letter reads. “We are conducting oversight to ensure the FBI is not retaliating against FBI employees for exercising their First Amendment rights and engaging in disfavored political speech,” he wrote in the new letter.
