Donald Trump and Mike Pence worked well together for four years.
But now there is a major fissure in their relationship.
And Donald Trump asked one question that Mike Pence won’t want to answer.
The one person who died as a direct result of the events of January 6 was an unarmed woman, Air Force veteran and Trump supporter named Ashli Babbitt.
According to the official story, a Capitol Hill Police Officer shot and killed Babbitt after she breached the Capitol and tried to crawl through a glass door.
The identity of who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt is being withheld from the American people.
Donald Trump recently emailed a statement out to the press demanding the identity of the officer.
“Who shot Ashli Babbitt?” Trump’s statement read.
But according to a new report on The American Spectator, the official story may not be the real story.
Blogger Cockburn wrote that the individual that actually shot Babbitt was a member of Mike Pence’s security detail.
Who shot Ashli Babbitt, the pro-Trump Air Force veteran who was killed by police during the January 6 riot at the US Capitol building? The American people were told that it was a Capitol Police officer who fired the fatal shot. But Cockburn has stumbled across some information that points to a different explanation.
Sources close to and within the intelligence community tell Cockburn that Babbitt was actually shot by a member of then-vice president Mike Pence’s protective detail. The VP’s detail, of course, is provided by US Secret Service, not the Capitol Police. One person asserted to Cockburn over drinks in DC that this is ‘basically an open secret’ in the intelligence community.
Cockburn added that the government withheld this information to protect Mike Pence from retaliation by some of the rioters that chanted “hang Mike Pence” before breaching the Capitol.
“Law enforcement sources suggested to Cockburn that the Capitol Police Department and Department of Justice have publicly identified the shooter as a Capitol Police officer in order to protect the reputation of the Secret Service. Cockburn also wonders if this isn’t an attempt to protect Pence from further anger or threats from Capitol rioters who wanted him to refuse to certify the results of the election on January 6,” Cockburn added.
January 6 was the breaking point between Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
Trump asserted that Pence should have rejected the results from states that Trump claimed were tainted by fraud.
Pence pointed to the Constitution and stated that he had no such power.
That relationship is likely to never be repaired.
However, that does not change the fact that in any other situation where a member of law enforcement kills an unarmed civilian the public knows the officer’s name.
