Former FBI special agent and MSNBC contributor Clint Watts was upset Tuesday that Sen. Tom Cotton was asking questions about MS-13 instead of talking about the murder of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick by insurrectionists while guarding the Capitol on January 6.
A police officer was murdered by an insurrectionist mob, guarding their Capitol, protecting the Senate and Senator Cotton is asking about MS-13

Watts knows more than probably even Sicknick’s immediate family because even the New York Times issued a correction to its reporting that he was bludgeoned with a fire extinguisher, and not even the current director of the FBI would confirm the cause of Sicknick’s death to a Senate committee Tuesday.

FBI Director Christopher Wray on Tuesday refused to disclose the cause of death of police officer Brian Sicknick during the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, citing an ongoing investigation.
“There is an ongoing investigation into his death. I have to be careful at this stage, because it’s ongoing, not to get out in front of it,” Wray said in a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing when asked about Sicknick’s death.
Wray declined to say whether the investigation is a homicide investigation.
Wray also gave vague answers when asked if investigators have determined a cause of death for Sicknick, an Afghanistan war veteran who joined the Capitol police force in 2008.
“I didn’t say that,” Wray told Sen. Chuck Grassley when asked if the FBI had determined the cause of death. “We’re not at a point where we could disclose or confirm the cause of death.”
. . . he said after talking for hours about ongoing criminal investigations, describing them in a presumptive manner.

Unsupported leftist narrative is why.

Because it doesn’t fit the narrative.
— Okay. (@corrcomm) March 2, 2021
Translation: ‘I’ve done everything I possibly could to pin the death of the officer on the people at the Capitol on January 6th, but I just haven’t found anything yet.’

His family said the autopsy showed no bruising so that false story about the fire extinguisher is fake…I heard stroke.
— JoJo (@JoJo87334715) March 2, 2021
His family already disclosed it. He died from a stroke caused by a blood clot.
— Eddie Mush (@MrEddieMush1) March 2, 2021
Easy… he had a fatal stroke and it has not been determined and never will be, whether the stress and physical energy involved in the riots contributed to his death.

Translation: The left wing media lied.

Strange….They can't disclose who shot Ashli Babbit either.
And yet we have former FBI agents to this day tweeting that Sicknick was murdered by the mob. If Watts knows how Sicknick was murdered, we wish he’d speak up on MSNBC — we’re very curious.
