Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Friday sued for information on Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.
Judicial Watch sued the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) of the District of Columbia for Officer Sicknick’s autopsy and related records.
The mainstream media, with The New York Times leading the charge, lied about Sicknick’s death and falsely claimed he died from injuries suffered after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the Capitol riot on January 6.
The Gateway Pundit was first to report that Officer Sicknick may have died from a stroke.
A source has told TGP reporter Cassandra Fairbanks Sicknick had a “medical emergency” (possibly a stroke) while on duty during the protest.
It is not clear if it was connected or related to the unrest.
The Democrat-media complex is lying about Sicknick’s death and FBI Director Wray refused to answer questions about his death during a recent hearing.
Earlier this week two men were arrested for *assault* on police officer Brian Sicknick.
Julian Elie Khater, 32, of Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39 of Morgantown, are accused of assault.
According to the far left Washington Post: “Khater and Tanios are charged with nine counts including assaulting Sicknick, a U.S. Capitol Police officer identified as C. Edwards and a D.C. police officer identified as B. Chapman with a deadly weapon. They are also charged with civil disorder and obstruction of a Congressional proceeding. The charges are punishable by up to 20 years in prison.”
Judicial Watch said enough is enough so they are suing for Sicknick’s autopsy and other records related to his death:
We’re not going to get the full truth of events at the Capitol on January 6 from politicians or a dishonest media — no surprise there. So were going after it on our own.
We filed a District of Columbia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in the District of Columbia Superior Court against the District of Columbia for the autopsy of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick and related records (Judicial Watch v. District of Columbia (Case Number 2021 CA 000875 B)).
We sued after the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) of the District of Columbia denied our February 16, 2021, FOIA request for:
All records, including but not limited to autopsy reports, toxicology reports, notes, photographs, and OCME officials’ electronic communications, related to the death on Jan. 6, 2021 of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick and its related investigation.
Initial reports from the New York Times and other media outlets about the cause of Officer Sicknick’s death have subsequently been corrected and revised.
The unusual and unlawful secrecy about Officer Sicknick’s death investigation undermines public confidence in the fair administration of justice.
We also recently filed lawsuits for U.S. Capitol Police emails and video related to the riot and for Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s communications with the Pentagon in the days after the January 6th incident.
It will be particularly interesting to see if any politicians such as Nancy Pelosi or other outside officials communicated with the medical examiner’s office about Officer Sicknick.
