Speaking with Newsmax TV‘s Greg Kelly on Tuesday, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) discussed the unsettled death of January 6th protester Ashli Babbit, who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant inside the U.S. Capitol Building.
Kelly asked Nunes to elaborate on a current lawsuit filed by Babbit’s family, saying Ashli’s death “was not nearly adequately addressed.”
“The family has now filed a lawsuit, and with any normal circumstance where you have an officer-involved shooting you have people who go out there and say, ‘Where’s the videotape? Where’s the videotapes? We need to know what officer did this. Why are we living under a different set of rules?’ I think that’s what the Babbit family is asking and I agree with them. We should know who the shooter is,” Nunes explained.
Next, the congressman wondered why surveillance footage from that day has yet to be released, saying, “House Republicans still have not seen the videotapes. There are reportedly 14,000 hours of videotapes from inside the Capitol. Why is that? Why do we not have that? Why do we not have an accounting of the dozens of people who broke the windows versus the people who just walked in openly because the Capitol police let them in?”
The most reasonable answer is that the media and government establishment is using the events of January 6th to manipulate the American public and if the truth about that day is revealed, their propaganda effort will be exposed.
