A video of Trump speaking at the “TEXAS Loves Ashli Babbitt rally” was tweeted out by journalist Tayler Hansen.
Hansen said the video was sent to Ashli Babbitt’s family by President Trump.
During the video, he called for the DOJ to re-open an investigation into the killing.
The officer who shot Babbitt was revealed to be Lt. Michael Byrd.
He was “exonerated after an internal investigation.”
From NBC News:
The Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt outside a door of the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot has been formally exonerated after an internal investigation, according to a department memo obtained by NBC News.
The officer, whose name has not been released, opened fire on Babbitt as she and a mob of other Trump supporters tried to forcefully enter the Capitol.
Video of the shooting showed Babbitt in front of a crowd of rioters trying to get through a door leading to where members of Congress were being evacuated on the House side of the building.
