Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), at House hearing, said that a Capitol police officer was “lying in wait” for Ashli Babbitt before shooting her as she tried to break into the House chamber during the January 6 riots at the Capitol, Politico reports.
Gosar said that Babbitt was “executed” by police and demanded the name of the officer involved in shooting.
Rep. Liz Cheney responded on Twitter: “On January 6, as the violent mob advanced on the House chamber, I was standing near Rep. Paul Gosar and helped him open his gas mask. The Capitol Police led us to safety. It is disgusting and despicable to see Gosar lie about that day and smear the men and women who defended us.”Save to Favorites
