Last month investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson continued to wonder why the name of the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6th was still being kept a secret.

We still don’t know the identity of the officer, but we do know the person will not be charged for shooting Babbitt, who was unarmed:

The Justice Department’s statement concludes this way:

The investigation revealed no evidence to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer willfully committed a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 242. Specifically, the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber. Acknowledging the tragic loss of life and offering condolences to Ms. Babbitt’s family, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Department of Justice have therefore closed the investigation into this matter.

People are still wondering why the identity of the person who killed Babbitt is being kept a secret.

Somebody really doesn’t want that information made public.
