Judicial Watch is conducting an independent investigation into the events and the consequences of what happened on January 6th, 2021 at the US Capitol.  Tom Fitton, the President of the citizen watchdog group released video footage, on Saturday, that he and his group received from a Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit with the DC Metropolitan Police.

In the footage is the shooting of Ashli Babbitt. The video is from police officers coming up the stairs near where she was shot and killed by Michael Byrd. The video shows that the shooting was reckless, that police were in very close proximity of Babbitt- and Fitton questions why the shooting was not investigated, especially considering the wanton disregard that the shooter, Byrd showed.

Fitton also released audio footage of Byrd being interviewed right after the shooting.

According to a press release from Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch announced today that it received multiple audio, visual and photo records from the DC Metropolitan Police Department about the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol Building.  The records include a cell phone video of the shooting and an audio of a brief police interview of the shooter, Lt. Michael Byrd.

Judicial Watch obtained the material through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit filed after DC officials failed to respond to two April, 2021 FOIA requests submitted by Judicial Watch to the Metropolitan Police Department and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for records related to Babbitt’s death (Judicial Watch v. The District of Columbia (No. 2021 CA 001710 B)).

Babbitt was shot and killed as she climbed through a broken interior window in the United States Capitol. She was unarmed, and a 14-year Air Force veteran. The identity of the shooter was kept secret by Congress as well as federal and local authorities for eight months until U.S. Capitol Police officer Michael Byrd went public to try to defend his killing of Babbitt. 

The records include a new cell phone video, edited by the DC police, that depicts police reacting to the shooting.

Also included among the records is an audio recording of an interview of Lt. Michael Byrd by the DC Metropolitan Police on January 6, 2021. The voices in Byrd’s and other witness interview audio recordings are all digitally altered to try to hide identities.  

The documents also include photos of the area where Babbitt was killed and DC police photographs of Lt. Byrdhis hands, and his gun. The photos also include pictures of a folding knife reportedly found in Babbitt’s pocket.

Other audio interviews of witnesses provide first-hand accounts of the shooting.

Last month, also as a result of this lawsuit, Judicial Watch released records from the DC Police about the shooting death of Babbitt, showing that multiple officers claimed they didn’t see a weapon in Babbitt’s hand before Byrd shot her, and Byrd was visibly distraught afterward. One officer attested that he didn’t hear any verbal commands before Byrd shot Babbitt. Today’s records include audio recordings of these witness interviews. The records also include internal communications about Byrd’s case and a crime scene examination report.

“These recordings and photos provide dramatic, first-hand evidence that the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt was unjustified,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is disturbing that neither the Pelosi Congress nor the Biden/Garland DOJ took no action over this needless death.”

Judicial Watch also filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ for records related to the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol Building. The organization has several lawsuits about the January 6 issue, and just last week released records detailing how federal law enforcement knew a large crowd would be present at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

    • And the US has been this way since it’s inception. Why was the first president and most thereafter, Freemason’s? Who built the whitehouse, pentagon and all the churches? Most of the appointed leaders were freemasons. Who is pictured on our money? Mostly Freemasons. Arrius Piso established freemasonry, he was the first pope, St Peter, he co-wrote the New Testament and he created ALL religions and appointed their leaders. Ever wonder why you know nothing about the Vatican? Now you know…

  • Come on Tom!! That was a lousy crap video! Here is a much better one!

    Watch this video.

    The black security man was not charged because he shot a blank!

    No blood spatter on wall behind Babbitt after she falls.
    No blood pool on the floor after she is moved 8 inches.
    Fake blood only appears after a man presses her neck and it is very, very, small when she is lifted.

    Babbitt was a ‘useful idiot’ likely picked at random to be used in a staged ‘False Flag’ FBI Black Op. by DNC/FBI crisis actors!

    Babbitt, if really dead, was killed or died later.
    Body was cremated in 2 days to cover up the true cause of death.

  • It’s time for Michael Byrd to be arrested for murder. Had Ashley been a left wing nut instead of a Trump supporter Byrd would have been jailed already. This two tier criminal justice system must be abolished and real justice restored before more lawlessness occurs and becomes the norm.
