U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd was never formally interviewed by the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department before being cleared of wrongdoing in the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, according to a report from Real Clear Investigations.
In an interview with the outlet, Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts said he was surprised at how “skimpy” Byrd’s investigative file is.
“He didn’t provide any statement to [criminal] investigators, and they didn’t push him to make a statement,” Roberts also said.
Roberts’ claims appear to be backed up by MPD documents obtained by Judicial Watch, which confirm that Byrd “declined to provide a statement.”
An MPD spokesperson confirmed that Byrd did not cooperate with internal affairs or FBI agents.
“MPD did not formally interview Lt. Byrd. … He didn’t give a statement while under the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation,” said D.C. MPD communications Director Kristen Metzger said.link
This case is naked KOBK, US govt DC domestic version. They won’t even touch this case because too many dominoes will fall. Legacy media along with all other already-totally-defeated US institutions silently cooperate with the deathly silence. Citizens have no recourse because DC and DC cops are as paralyzed as any US hospital up to its neck in covid bribes and threats. These are the results of 75 years of relentless, violent clandestine KOBK warfare against all important USA institutions. Ashli is a symbol of this as are the tens of thousands of Americans who died silently choking on ventilator tubes due to deliberate covid malpractice. ABN
