Republican Representative from Arizona, Paul Gosar, introduced the mom of Ashi Babbitt in a heartwarming gesture to the country at a huge political event on Saturday.
“She came all the way over here to tell you thank you,” Gosar said, walking to the side of the stage so he could acknowledge her.

She was identified in U.S. media as a backer of the President from San Diego, California, who had served in the United States Air Force.
The woman who died on Wednesday of a bullet wound during the violent storming of the U.S. Capitol was shot by police, authorities said.
The only fatality tied to Wednesday’s unrest was the woman, reportedly a dedicated Donald Trump backer and air force veteran who was among a throng of supporters of the President that invaded the U.S. legislature.
The dead woman was identified in U.S. media as Ashli Babbitt, a backer of the President from San Diego, California who had served in the United States Air Force.
She was shot amid chaotic and violent scenes inside the Capitol building, where some security personnel drew their guns to protect lawmakers as protesters advanced.
Although rumors have circulated about the identity of the killer, Babbitt’s killer has not been officially identified yet.
Gosar has been outspoken in DC, insisting on finding out who killed her daughter because the Federal government hid those details from Babitt’s husband, her family, and the country.
The family of the California woman shot to death during the Capitol riot plans to file a multi-million dollar wrongful death lawsuit against the Capitol Police Department, CBS Washington, D.C. affiliate WUSA-TV reports.
The family says she was murdered.
Thirty-five-year-old Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt was hit by the only shot fired during the riot.
Babbitt had traveled to D.C. from California because of her fervent belief in the lie that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Trump.
Video shows her trying to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby outside the House Chamber when a Capitol Police officer guarding the entrance fired.
An investigation by the Justice Department found insufficient evidence to bring any charges against the officer, who’s never been named publicly.
But Babbitt’s family feels she was murdered.
“In the eyes of her family? Of course she was,” attorney Terry Roberts told WUSA. “I mean, there was just no legal justification to take her life.”
Roberts, a Prince George’s County-based attorney who specializes in police misconduct and civil rights litigation said to him, the shooting is an “obvious case of excessive force.”
“She could have easily been stopped by the officer who shot her or numerous other officers who were around and been arrested, if that’s what they wanted to do. There was no need to shoot her,” Roberts said.
“Any rookie police officer with a set of handcuffs could have taken her into custody. She’s an Air Force veteran. She was actually a military police officer herself. I am sure that she would have complied.”
The shooting was captured on video from multiple angles, including by Capitol riot defendant John Sullivan, who streams under the name “JaydenX.” Sullivan’s video, provided to WUSA, shows Babbitt was part of a mob of dozens of rioters using improvised weapons to break the glass on doors and windows leading into the Speaker’s Lobby. A small number of Capitol Police officers can be seen barricaded behind the door.
Roberts said he hasn’t heard any evidence that the officer who shot Babbitt yelled orders for her to stop, and also said it’s not clear to him that Babbitt ever even saw the officer.
“On her side of the door, it’s quite tumultuous, you know — a lot of noise and everything,” Roberts said. “I don’t believe Ashli Babbitt saw him at all. I mean, I think that if she has seen an officer with a gun facing her, that would be a totally different thing.”
For some unknown reason, Gosar’s demand for government transparency has threatened the left, who appears to prefer a government that lies to them and hides things.
Their love of totalitarian control is strange to people who support Trump.
Consider this weird article, note the tone:
Six months to the day after a mob broke into the U.S. Capitol in a direct attack on democracy, Rep. Paul Gosar on Tuesday came once again to the defense of one of those who died in the insurrection.
Oh, not one of the police officers who lost their lives in the days and weeks after the attack. Gosar has steadfastly refused to honor any of the men and women who defended the nation’s Capitol (and him) that day.
Instead, Gosar chose the six-month anniversary of that now-infamous day to pay tribute to one of the rioters and to continue his quest to sic the mob on the Capitol police officer who killed her.
Gosar wants to know who “executed” Ashli Babbitt.
“Her life mattered,” Gosar said, in a statement issued Tuesday. “We do not allow the execution of citizens by street ‘justice’ in our country.”
