Ashli Babbitt shooter name LIVE – NBC News’ Lester Holt to reveal identity of police officer who killed Capitol rioter

ASHLI Babbitt was a Donald Trump supporter who was gunned down in Washington DC.

The 35-year-old Air Force veteran had been with others who stormed the Capitol building on January 6 when she shot.

Now, for the first time, the identity of the police officer who pulled the trigger is set to be revealed.

‘Speaking out and revealing his identity publicly for the first time, the officer will share his perspective on the events of that day, including the aftermath of the deadly insurrection and the threats he has received,’ said NBC News in a statement announcing that he would be interviewed by Lester Holt.

‘He will also discuss the recent news that Capitol Police will not discipline him following an internal review, exonerating him for use of force.’

The interview is set to air on Thursday at 6:30pm on NBC News.

Earlier this week, it was announced the officer “acted lawfully and in line with police department policy”, the U.S. Capitol Police said Monday.

Federal prosecutors also cleared the officer of any wrongdoing after an investigation into the shooting and did not publicly name him. Capitol Police, concerned for his safety, have also not released his name. The officer’s attorney, Mark Schamel, said his client is facing “many credible death threats” and other “horrific threats” and was forced from his home because of them.

  • WITNESS ACCOUNT OF BABBITT’S DEATH

    A fellow Trump supporter, who witnessed Babbitt, told WUSA 9: “A number of police and secret service were saying ‘get back, get down, get out of the way’.

    “She didn’t heed the call and as we kind of raced up to grab people and pull them back they shot her in the neck and she fell back on me.

    “And she started to say ‘it’s fine, it’s cool’ and then she started kinda moving weird and blood was coming out of her mouth and neck and nose and I don’t know if she’s alive or dead any more.”

    He added: “I’m not injured… it could have been me, but she went in first.”

  • FAMILY TO SUE OFFICER

    Babbitt’s family plans to launch a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit against the officer.

    An attorney for the Babbitt family claims she was “ambushed” by the officer, who warned her to stay back.

    Members of the far-right and even Babbitt’s husband have previously called on officials to name the officer.

    GOP Congressman Paul Gosar even previously suggested that Babbitt was “executed in cold blood” by an officer “lying in wait.”

    And Republic Rep. and former QAnoner Marjorie Taylor Greene said last month that she believes she and Babbitt would have been friends.

  • DOJ ‘REQUEST TO CREMATE’ BABBITT

  • TRUMP COMMENTS ON ASHLI BABBITT ON FOX

    During a July appearance on Fox News, Trump called Babbitt “an innocent, wonderful, incredible woman, a military woman.”

    He also called her death a “terrible thing” and said there was “no reason for it.”

    During the same interview, Trump also stoked conspiracy theories by suggesting that the officer who killed her has been allowed to remain anonymous because they guard a high-profile Democrat.

    “I will tell you they know who shot Ashli Babbitt. They’re protecting that person,” Trump said.

    “I’ve heard also that it was the head of security for a certain high official – a Democrat – and we’ll see, because it’s going to come out. It’s going to come out.”

  • JANUARY 6 COMMISSION LABELED ‘WITCH HUNT’

    In May, Oklahoma Republican Stephanie Bice – who backed the January 6 commission – declared: “I will not let this commission be a witch hunt by Nancy Pelosi.

    “The purpose of the commission is not to go after former President Trump, but to find out why the Capitol police and sergeants-at-arms were so unprepared.”

  • PRO-TRUMP APP HACKED

    According to Motherboard, a notorious hacking forum posted a database of the emails and usernames allegedly scrapped from GETTR on Tuesday.

    The database was posted into an online forum and found by Alon Gal, the co-founder, and CTO of cybersecurity firm Hudson Rock, who told Motherboard he believed the hack should be treated as a data breach. 

    “When threat actors are able to extract sensitive information due to neglectful API implementations, the consequence is equivalent to a data breach and should be handled accordingly by the firm and to be examined by regulators,” he said. 

    The database was also reported by The Daily Beast who said that the scrape had taken advantage of GETTR’s buggy API, or the underpinning of the app. 

  • DOJ WON’T PURSUE CHARGES

    The Department of Justice ruled in April that it would not be pursuing criminal charges against the police officer who shot Babbitt, identifying them only as a member of the US Capitol Police.

    “The investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress,” the DOJ said.

  • TRUMP REWRITES CAPITOL RIOT

    In the months since the Capitol riots, Trump and his closest allies have sought to rewrite the narrative of January 6, when a mob of thousands of MAGA fans stormed the Capitol, threatening to “hang Mike Pence” as they attacked police and hunted for lawmakers.

    Trump has routinely attempted to spin the shocking and violent event as a largely peaceful crowd of protesters who have been wrongfully persecuted by prosecutors and unfairly demonized by the “Fake News Media.”

  • GOP BLASTS JANUARY 6 COMMISSION

    Republicans who previously backed an independent committee to investigate January 6 have branded Pelosi’s latest scheme a “turbo-charged partisan exercise” instead of an “honest fact-finding body.” 

    New York Rep John Katko issued a statement last month in which he panned Pelosi’s push for a select committee and said he would have a “hard time” imagining he would participate. 

    Katko was among the House Republicans who struck a deal on a bipartisan probe that would have included five representatives from each party. 

  • HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED DURING THE RIOT?

    The failed coup attempt on the Capitol by President Trump’s supporters on January 6 left five people dead.

    Thousands of Trump supporters, at the behest of the former president encouraging them to “fight like hell” against the certification of Joe Biden’s election win, stormed the Capitol during the four and a half-hour attack.

  • TRUMP KNOWS IDENTITY OF COP

    in a statement issued through his Save America PAC earlier this month, Trump revealed that he had spoken to Babbitt’s family and claimed to know who the officer responsible for her death was.

    The former president, who was impeached over accusations he incited the violent mob, also heaped praise onto Babbitt, calling her a true patriot who didn’t deserve to die.

    “I spoke to the wonderful mother and devoted husband of Ashli Babbitt, who was murdered at the hands of someone who should never have pulled the trigger of his gun,” Trump began, adding, “We know who it is.”

  • THE OFFICER ‘ACTED LAWFULLY’

    Earlier this week, it was announced the officer “acted lawfully and in line with police department policy”, the U.S. Capitol Police said Monday.

    Federal prosecutors also cleared the officer of any wrongdoing after an investigation into the shooting and did not publicly name him. Capitol Police, concerned for his safety, have also not released his name.

    The officer’s attorney, Mark Schamel, said his client is facing “many credible death threats” and other “horrific threats” and was forced from his home because of them.

  • NBC NEWS STATEMENT

    ‘Speaking out and revealing his identity publicly for the first time, the officer will share his perspective on the events of that day, including the aftermath of the deadly insurrection and the threats he has received,’ said NBC News in a statement.

  • THE IDENTITY OF THE POLICE OFFICER TO BE REVEALED

    The police officer will be interviewed by Lester Holt.

    The interview is set to air on Thursday at 6:30pm on NBC News.

  • HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED IN THE CAPITOL RIOTS?

    At least four people died in the riots.

    Aside from the woman who was shot, police say three others were killed in what was described as “medical emergencies”.

  • ASHLI WAS ‘CLIMBING THROUGH A WINDOW’

    The shooting took place as the Capitol was put under lockdown, and the entire city on a 6pm curfew.

    One witness to the shooting claimed she was shot by police as she tried to climb through a broken window to enter the congressional chambers.

    A graphic clip shared on social media showed a woman, believed to be Ms Babbitt, bleeding out from the neck after she was allegedly shot.

    The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting were unclear.

  • WILL THE SHOOTER FACE CHARGES?

    The shooting is being investigated by the force’s internal affairs unit, which is responsible for investigating deaths involving officers.

    They have not been charged with anything as of January 7.

    The shooter has not been identified before now.

  • WITNESS STATEMENT

    A fellow Trump supporter, who witnessed Babbitt, told WUSA 9: “A number of police and secret service were saying ‘get back, get down, get out of the way’.

    “She didn’t heed the call and as we kind of raced up to grab people and pull them back they shot her in the neck and she fell back on me.

    “And she started to say ‘it’s fine, it’s cool’ and then she started kinda moving weird and blood was coming out of her mouth and neck and nose and I don’t know if she’s alive or dead any more.”

    He added: “I’m not injured… it could have been me, but she went in first.”

  • WHO SHOT ASHLI BABBIT?

    Police say Babbitt was shot by a plain-clothed officer on January 6 as she and other protesters stormed the Capitol building.

    She was part of a march looking to disrupt the formal confirmation of Joe Biden’s win in the presidential election.

  • MIKE PENCE ON HER PASSING

    In a televised address, Vice President Mike Pence said: “We grieve the loss of life.”

  • WAS ASHLI MARRIED?

    She was married to husband Aaron and lived near San Diego.

    Her husband says she was a strong supporter of President Trump, and was a great patriot to all who knew her, KUSI TV reported.

  • LAST TWEET

    The day before she died, Babbitt tweeted: “Nothing will stop us…. they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light.”

    Babbitt, who used the Twitter handle CommonAshSense, also retweeted — a few hours ahead of her and other Trump supporters storming the Capitol — a “MUST BE DONE LIST before Congress meets today.”

    On January 5, Babbitt retweeted TV footage of a pro-Trump crowd massing in DC ahead of the January 6 riots over the election result.

  • WHAT DID ASHLI SAY BEFORE THE PROTESTS?

    After President Donald Trump addressed his followers on Capitol Hill, Babbitt reportedly filmed herself moments before the mayhem.

    Draped in a Trump flag, Babbitt went live on Facebook and boasted that she was part of the mob marching to the Capitol.

    She claimed there were more than three million rioters marching alongside her in Washington DC.

  • THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT FAILED TO CHARGE THE OFFICER

    However, The Justice Department declined to charge the officer in connection to the shooting, after they “determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution” following an investigation.

    Yet, an attorney for Babbitt’s family announced plans on April 29 to file a $10million civil lawsuit against the Capitol Police and the officer who shot her.

  • TRUMP CLAIMS HE KNOWS WHO SHOT BABBIT

    On Wednesday, July 7, former President Trump claimed at a press conference that he knows who shot Babbitt.

    Trump told the press: “People are being treated unbelievably unfairly when you look at people in prison, and nothing happens to antifa, and they burn down cities and killed people.

    “There were no guns in the Capitol … except for the gun that shot Ashli Babbitt, and nobody knows who that man were [sic].”

    “If that were the opposite way, that man would be all over — he would be the most well-known — and I believe I can say ‘man’ because I believe I know exactly who it is — but he would be the most well-known person in this country, in the world.”
