Ashli Babbitt, a Trump-supporting US veteran, was gunned down in cold blood inside the US Capitol. She was unarmed and posed no threat to the police or anyone. There were several police officers surrounding her when she was shot dead without warning. Her killer Lt. Mike Byrd then fled down the hall after he shot her dead without warning.

The Gateway Pundit confirmed that Lt. Mike Byrd was Ashli Babbitt’s killer.

On Thursday morning the attorneys for the Babbitt family for the first time released the name of Ashli’s killer – USCP Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd.

Babbitt family attorney, Terry Roberts identified the killer of Ashli Babbitt as USCP Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd.


And now we also know that Congress was evacuated on Jan. 6 due to a pipe bomb threat. It was not because of Trump supporters walking the halls.

IT WAS ALL A LIE: Congress Was Evacuated on Jan. 6 Due to Pipe Bomb Threat — Not Because of Trump Supporters Walking Halls

Last Friday Lt. Mike Byrd was exonerated for killing Ashli Babbitt in cold blood. He gave no warning, he ran from the scene of the crime, he shot an unarmed woman dead who posed no threat.

And now he walks free.

Babbitt family Attorney Roberts spoke with Newsweek last night. Roberts alleged racism played a role in the investigation.

Roberts told Zenger Wednesday night that the shooter was “Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd.”

Byrd’s attorney, Mark Schamel, did not dispute the positive identification. It adds to information from other sources who told Zenger in recent months that Byrd was the January 6 shooter. None of them would say so on the record.

Byrd is a controversial figure with a record of mishandling firearms, including once leaving a loaded pistol in a Congressional Visitor Center bathroom. Roberts said Byrd’s decision to fire his weapon on January 6 indicated his unfitness for duty.

“If I was a congressman, I’d be very concerned about him carrying a gun around me,” he said.

Typically, police officers who shoot civilians are named publicly. But the January 6 riot and the riots that erupted after George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer, divided the country along political, class, and racial lines—making officials cautious about revealing the name of a Black police officer who killed a white protester.

Roberts said race was “clearly a factor” in the decision to shield Byrd from public scrutiny.

“It’s something that has to be considered, because it’s just a clear pattern in the United States,” he said. “A white cop kills a Black individual? Their name is out there within a day. It’s all public. And look, a police officer is a public official. There should not be any exception for this.”

U.S. Capitol Police officials, police union representatives and government officials had repeatedly claimed that disclosing the officer’s identity would put his life and his wife’s in danger—and subject them to racial slurs. Lt. Byrd’s family roots are in Jamaica, according to one of his neighbors.

Killer Byrd will sit down with liberal hack Lester Holt to describe his senseless killing of an unarmed, 118-pound veteran and Trump supporter.

So will Holt ask Killer Byrd about leaving his loaded gun in a Capitol restroom?
