Attorney For Ashli Babbitt Family Promises To Continue Legal Battle After Biden’s DOJ Says Officer Won’t Be Charged

(Republican Insider) – The team of attorneys representing the family of Ashli Babbitt, the Air Force veteran who was killed by Capitol Hill police during the siege that took place at the Capitol building, have promised that they will continue the legal battle for justice after the Department of Justice, under President Joe Biden refused to prosecute the officer involved.

According to a new report from Infowars, the lawyers’ press release said, “Today the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia announced that it will not pursue criminal charges against the Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt in our Nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021.”

The statement then goes on to put the DOJ on blast for the statement they released which the attorneys felt was puzzling.

“Specifically, the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot Ms. Babbitt [sic], the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in the defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber,” it read.

Terry Roberts, the family’s personal attorney, responded by saying, “This double-negative is an odd way of explaining the basis for not bringing charges. It painfully glosses over the obvious problem of squaring the decision not to prosecute with the known facts.” Roberts added, “The actual evidence is this: the officer shot an unarmed woman who was not an immediate threat to him or any Member of Congress.”

“That is inconsistent with any claim of self-defense or the defense of others, period.” Roberts went on to say, adding, “To kill Ashli Babbitt in the way it was done demonstrates the requisite degree of willfulness to support a prosecution under the civil rights statute previously referred to.”

“We strongly disagree with the U.S. Attorney’s decision.” Concluding his response, Roberts declared, “We are not dissuaded from our goal of ultimately vindicating Ashli Babbitt’s constitutional rights in the civil arena,” indicating a civil case against the officer responsible for Babbitt’s death or the federal government may lie just down the road.

Roberts also made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program. You can check out the interview in the clip below.

At the end of the day, if you review the footage of Babbitt, she had not yet posed a serious threat to the safety of the officer or those the officer says he was trying to protect. Firing his gun seemed a little premature.

If Babbitt hadn’t been white, we all know there would be calls for this officer’s job and demands that he be put in prison for acting too rashly. It’s an inconsistent application of values to not seek justice for someone simply because they aren’t the right skin color.

  1. Terrry’s correct: illegal use of deadly force. And the perp first several rounds endangering many unarmed citizens. Pepper spray, night sticks, tasers all are normal procedural tools in this case. Shooter intended to kill an American without cause and with the use of non deadly force options,

    Biden must be removed. His very presence as Usurper Beneficiary of digitally rigged election with priors of constant coups, impeachments, fake riots, fake antifa, kneeling to rioters in his service, hoax corona, fake WAVE, all all typical CFR paid agitation using Trilateral and CIA assets plus the cover of their several NGO’s, like Ford. We need accountibility and we needed it since the very day Ike gave his warning speech, then JFK, JFK’s killing, RFK’s Killing and our Trump’s warning speech AGAIN pointing out the CFR, Zbig Trilateral, Bilderberg corps, all aligned with Vatican Imperial policy. Look at our Vatican South Borders today and then look at the past decades going all the way back to 1848.

    Conspiracies and networks of treason stay hidden only with fear. We need courage to overcome the fear of the Imperial CFR Cabals to bring Biden, Dem elite and neo con filth to justice. Truth, justice and the American Way.

  2. To this day no one has revealed what the rules of engagement were. Was he ordered to shot anyone breeching the barricade regardless whether they were armed?

  3. I am trying to see the damn difference between all the officers charged with murder except this one. I know/realize that there are differences in every case that sets it apart, but I agree with the use of force differential… Ashley was not fleeing, nor trying to shoot back, nor any other action that deemed her a threat to that officer. We are in TROUBLE America… We have to recognize this and use LEGAL options to fight this domestic insurrection that is trying to be hidden from us by the Left, MSM, Tech giants, Corporate CEO’s and sadly some Misinformed brats who have been allowed to get by with way too much!

    Yes! Truth, justice and the American Way! The hypocritical use of our laws applied as politically needed is NOT the American Way.

  5. This has to be reinvestigated. There is something devious going on among the deep state swamp dwellers. But then again isn’t this normal?

  6. Why was she the only one that got shot? She was a small woman who had no weapon and, I seem to recall, did not even have an angry look on her face.

  7. As for Ashley…and any other of the people who stormed the Capital; they did this to cause harm to anyone who got in their way. I guess if I did something illegal I would expect a confrontation with police…even being shot. Why are we so eager to protect the “criminals” and not our police.
