‘Case closed’: Police shooting of Ashli Babbitt during January 6 riots ruled ‘lawful,’ officer will NOT face disciplinary action — RT USA News

https://www.rt.com/usa/532853-ashli-babbitt-killing-lawful-case-closed/

The Capitol Police officer who shot an unarmed Trump supporter
dead during the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill won’t face disciplinary
measures, and will remain unidentified, the force announced after an
internal probe concluded.
Ashli Babbitt, a military
veteran and supporter of former President Donald Trump, was shot dead by
a Capitol Police officer as she pushed forward with a group of
protesters inside the US Capitol in January. Her death was the only
death that day to have been conclusively linked to the actions of
another person.

Babbitt’s death outraged many conservatives, but the officer responsible will face no consequences, the Capitol Police announced on Monday. An internal investigation found that “the officer’s conduct was lawful,” and as such they “will not be facing internal discipline.”

Furthermore, the officer will remain unidentified due to “numerous credible and specific threats,” the announcement continued, adding that the officer’s conduct “potentially saved Members and staff from serious injury and possible death.”

With the closing of the investigation, the likelihood that
Babbitt’s killer will ever be identified is slim. The Justice Department
closed
an investigation into the shooting back in April, and Babbitt’s husband
has failed to uncover their identity via a Freedom of Information Act
request (the United States Capitol Police is exempt from FOIA oversight,
but Washington DC’s Metropolitan Police Department reportedly ignored
the request). The husband, Aaron Babbitt, has since filed a lawsuit in a bid to force more details around the shooting into the open.

Conservatives,
including Trump, have repeatedly demanded that Babbitt’s killer be
unmasked, and some theories as to his/her identity have been floated.
One of these theories, promoted by Trump, is that Babbitt’s killer was
the “head of security” for a top Democrat. Another names a 53-year veteran of the force as the shooter.

Aside from Babbitt, three other protesters died at the Capitol
that day, two of natural causes and one of a drug overdose. A Capitol
Police officer, Brian Sicknick, died of a stroke hours after the riots
concluded, rather than by being bludgeoned to death by protesters, as
initial media reports claimed. Four other Capitol Police officers have allegedly died of suicide in the months following the riot.

New Jeffrey Epstein book ‘Perversion of Justice’ hints at plenty of accomplices fearing exposure… but will they ever be named? — RT Op-ed

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/530713-epstein-book-perversion-justice-brown/

The death of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein denied his victims
justice and left Ghislaine Maxwell as keeper of his darkest secrets. But
a new book investigating the case suggests her trial shouldn’t be the
end of this sordid story.
When the trial of
Ghislaine Maxwell over her alleged complicity in trafficking teenage
girls for sex with dead paedophile Jeffrey Epstein eventually draws to a
conclusion, it is unlikely to be the end of this sordid, salacious
saga.

Thanks to the mass of journalistic grunt work carried out by
Miami Herald investigative reporter, Julie K Brown, and rigorously
documented in her recently published ‘Perversion of Justice’,
the recriminations will continue, law officials will continue to look
over their shoulders and the victims will edge ever closer to closure,
of sorts.

Because justice will elude the 34 women who have stayed
the distance as legal proceedings against the disgraced financier
dragged on, and were then ultimately derailed, when Epstein apparently
chose the coward’s exit rather than face his accusers and hung himself
with his bedsheets in his prison cell in the Special Housing Unit of New
York’s Metropolitan Correctional Centre in August 2019.

While no
one openly mourns the death of a sex monster, Epstein’s ranks of lawyers
have attempted to paint his death as some sort of miscarriage of
justice and Brown does take a close look at the circumstances
surrounding it and comes up with… well, nothing certain.

The
security cameras monitoring Epstein’s prison cell were on the blink at
the time of his death, the two guards supposedly keeping watch over him –
following one earlier unsuccessful attempt at suicide – were both found
fast asleep on the job, and it was clearly documented that their charge
was ill-suited to the harsh realities of prison life.

Brown also
suggests that selecting Nicholas Tartaglione, a former upstate New York
police officer facing quadruple murder charges, to be the bunkmate of
Epstein, following his 2019 arrest on federal charges of sex trafficking
minors, might have been considered a bit more carefully.

But,
frankly, any attempt to garner sympathy for the loathsome billionaire is
hard to stomach, no matter how or at whose hands he finally shuffled
off this mortal coil.

Ghislaine Maxwell took two previously undisclosed trips with Bill Clinton to ‘escape’ from Jeffrey Epstein – reports

Anyone who has followed this story will see parallels in the way
that Maxwell’s legal team is behaving in the run-up to her trial. Ever
since her arrest, smarmy, disingenuous, top-flight lawyers have been
trying to weasel bail, better prison conditions and more lenient
treatment for their client, even enlisting the help of her brother to claim she was being kept in conditions as bad as those in the USA’s notorious rendition prison in Guantanamo Bay.

In
the pleas to the court to go easy on Maxwell, there is never any
mention of the countless lives of pretty young teenagers that were
destroyed by cynical manipulation to coerce them into having sex with
Epstein and his rich powerful pals, before they were discarded like the
soiled towels the pervert would use three or four times a day after
assaulting his latest ‘private masseuse.’

While Maxwell’s trial
should certainly be a significant step forward in reaching closure on
this case, and the total of $67million paid out in compensation to some
of his victims also helps, after reading ‘Perversion of Justice’ you
can’t help feel there is substantially more to be revealed, that, were
it to be made public, would rupture the US political and legal
establishment.

In one instance that Brown explores, it’s surely
significant that no one has been able to extract from bureaucracy the
unredacted flight manifests of Epstein’s private jet trips down to his
personal slice of the Caribbean, dubbed ‘Paedophile Island.’ Rumours
abound, meanwhile, about the identities of the rich and powerful men who
accompanied the financier on his jaunts to the island of Little St
James, along with the many teenage girls, for sordid sex in the sun away
from prying eyes.

While money and power shield many of those who
embraced Epstein’s hospitality, 59-year-old Maxwell’s pending trial
could identify some of those accomplices who would much prefer they were
never mentioned. This might prompt some of those unnamed former
associates of Epstein into working on Maxwell’s behalf, calling in
favours from powerful friends behind the scenes, attempting to coerce
prosecutors and police and enlisting private investigators to dig up
information that might deter her inquisitors from taking too close a
look at all the details. Obviously, a carefully worded plea bargain
would be in all their interests.

Because that’s how Epstein worked
and Maxwell, without question, learned a lot from her former boyfriend.
Of course, that would mean the search for truth would again be stymied.

What
does offer hope is that the political and legal landscape in the States
has changed since Donald Trump, a long-time pal of Epstein, left office
and the more ‘colourful’ members of an inter-connected band of
high-rolling lawyers, politicos and influence peddlers scattered in the
wind. Some of the creepier rockspiders themselves have been arrested,
charged and jailed for various misdemeanours while others have quietly
scuttled off, hoping no one notices.

Talk about the wider trafficking network that Epstein established seems to have gone quiet, particularly since the arrest of French modelling agent Jean-Luc Brunel over rape and sexual assault charges.

If
that is true, then maybe justice of sorts can be found. Maybe Maxwell
has no cards left to play and will spend the next few decades behind
bars and Epstein’s victims, like Virginia Giuffre and Courtney Wild, can
carry on with rich and fulfilling lives.

Or maybe something
darker will emerge and Epstein’s crimes will become Maxwell’s crimes and
the crimes of others. One thing is certain: only when the fallen
socialite steps into the courtroom on November 29, will we even begin to know if we are anywhere near the end of this shameful perversion of justice.

Ashli Babbitt’s Mother Speaks Out: Nancy Pelosi Orchestrated My Daughter’s Execution – enVolve – Trump:The American Years

https://americafirst.blog/2021/07/29/ashli-babbitts-mother-speaks-out-nancy-pelosi-orchestrated-my-daughters-execution-envolve/

Ashli Babbitt’s mother, Michelle Witthoeft, says Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is responsible for orchestrating her daughter’s death on January 6.

“My daughter was a California constituent, and Nancy Pelosi not only, I feel like, orchestrated the death of my daughter.”

“I’ve reached out to Nancy Pelosi’s office several times, and she has yet to call me back because she’s too busy playing in her clubhouse with all of her elite people,” Witthoeft said.

She then reminded the House Speaker about who she really works for.“You know, it’s the people’s house. It’s not your house, Nancy,” Witthoeft declared.“It’s the people’s house.

That’s my message to Nancy Pelosi,” she added.Wnd.com reports: Despite the many claims of violence that occurred on Jan. 6, evidence has yet to surface suggesting Babbitt herself was reckless or threatening.

An earlier report from The Western Journal found that there had been no documented reports of Babbitt starting fires or attacking police officers.

Her mother wants to know who is responsible for her death.“The Capitol Police should be held accountable like every other police department in the country.”

Witthoeft isn’t the only one fighting for Babbitt.In a July 1 statement, former President Donald Trump asked only the following question: “Who shot Ashli Babbitt?”President Trump asks who shot Ashli Babbitt.

Every American should know who shot Ashli Babbitt. An unarmed young woman was shot at point-blank range and killed for trespassing.

Any cop in this country they did that anywhere else would already be in prison. pic.twitter.com/2UKmhrIzEc— Bernard B. Kerik (@BernardKerik) July 1, 2021Trump’s statement brought national awareness to the issue, causing Babbitt’s name to trend on Twitter.

Back in April, Babbitt’s family announced that they were suing the Capitol Police for “at least $10 million” in damages.

For the suit to be successful, the family would have to prove that the officer responsible had used “constitutionally unreasonable” force against Babbitt.

On April 14, after conducting an investigation, the Department of Justice released a statement on the matter.“

Prosecutors would have to prove not only that the officer used force that was constitutionally unreasonable, but that the officer did so ‘willfully,’ which the Supreme Court has interpreted to mean that the officer acted with a bad purpose to disregard the law,” the DOJ said.

“As this requirement has been interpreted by the courts, evidence that an officer acted out of fear, mistake, panic, misperception, negligence, or even poor judgment cannot establish the high level of intent required under Section 242.”

In the era of police accountability and transparency, why has the death of Ashli Babbitt been swept under the rug?

No one is marching in the streets for her. No one is burning down police precincts.Despite what the establishment media and Democratic politicians have claimed, the events of Jan. 6. — while shameful and wrong — did not constitute an “insurrection.”

The continued problem from that day has been the government’s lack of transparency about Babbitt’s death.People want answers. They won’t forget — and Babbitt’s mother isn’t going to let them.
