During its primetime show trial last Thursday, the January 6 select committee mentioned the lives of police officers that were lost that day, and the committee sent out a tweet reminding us that Officer Brian Sicknick “succumbed to his injuries” the next day, even though the medical examiner concluded that Sicknick had died of natural causes: “acute brainstem and cerebellar infarcts due to acute basilar artery thrombosis.” A stroke.

President Biden has said that criminals killed a police officer at the Capitol, and police officers who died much later, some by suicide, are routinely counted as casualties of January 6. There were deaths that day: Ashli Babbitt was shot and killed, and half-a-dozen other people died of natural causes. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre noted that Biden has said law enforcement endured three hours of “medieval hell” and were “dripping in blood, surrounded by carnage.”

“While he was doing that, brave law enforcement officers were subject to the medieval hell for three hours, dripping in blood, surrounded by carnage," Biden said, adding Trump lacked courage to act.

I thought he was fighting with the FBI agents and trying to commandeer the Limo🤔

No, strangling Secret Service agents and lunging at the steering wheel of the SUV.
None of that happened, but multiple Trump supporters were killed, such as Rosanne Boyland and Ashley Babbit

Maybe if the January 6 select committee were more committed to finding out what actually happened that day and how it was allowed to happen, we’d learn a lot more about how things got out of hand. But surrounded by carnage? Come on, man.
