Michael Byrd, Who Shot and Killed Ashley Babbit, Was "Exonerated" Without Cooperating With Investigation or Giving an Interview to Investigators

The man who shot and killed an unarmed woman without warning was cleared of any wrongdoing... without even being interviewed.



When U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd went on "NBC Nightly News" to tell his side of shooting and killing unarmed Jan. 6 rioter Ashli Babbitt, he made a point to note he'd been investigated by several agencies and exonerated for his actions that day.

"There's an investigative process [and] I was cleared by the DOJ [Department of Justice], and FBI and [the D.C.] Metropolitan Police," he told NBC News anchor Lester Holt in August, adding that the Capitol Police also cleared him of wrongdoing and decided not to discipline or demote him for the shooting.

Byrd then answered a series of questions by Holt about the shooting, but what he told the friendly journalist, he likely never told investigators. That's because he refused to answer their questions, according to several sources and documents reviewed by RealClearInvestigations.

In fact, investigators cleared Byrd of wrongdoing in the shooting without actually interviewing him about the shooting or threatening him with punishment if he did not cooperate with their criminal investigation.

"He didn't provide any statement to [criminal] investigators and they didn't push him to make a statement," Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts said in an RCI interview. "It's astonishing how skimpy his investigative file is."

Roberts, who has spoken with the D.C. MPD detective assigned to the case, said the kid-glove treatment of Byrd raises suspicions the investigation was a "whitewash."

The lawyer's account appears to be backed up by a January 2021 internal affairs report, which notes Byrd "declined to provide a statement," D.C. MPD documents show.

Asked about it, a D.C. MPD spokeswoman confirmed that Byrd did not cooperate with internal affairs agents or FBI agents, who jointly investigated what was one of the most high-profile officer-involved shooting cases in U.S. history.

"MPD did not formally interview Lt. Byrd," deputy D.C. MPD communications director Kristen Metzger said. And, "He didn't give a statement while under the U.S. Attorney's Office investigation.


He might have said something incriminating in an interview, so best not to have one!

There is no Deep State. It's just a right-wing conspiracy theory.

BTW, Kevin Clinesmith is practicing law again and Andy McCabe has his pension back.

Yep. They have an image in their heads of Trump supporters: read no books, marry their sister, have 3 teeth, carries a gun around all the time, cannot wait to shoot it, etc. They think the cartoonish brain dead stereotypes of the far right in left wing trash shows and books is reality.

Sorry but unless you are being sarcastic, that hasn't been the case in over 50 years.

It doesn't matter how long its been. It was that way. Now its this way.

And not every case of harassment and abuse was for reasonable cause. Some guys are just horrible people. This cop is one example. There were others. Some people should never be given power. Corruption, abuse, and evil is not new. Only the targets have changed. Its even the same political party.

123 Well I guess I'll just leave this here. I put it up last night for the night walkers. Somebody sent it to me, no clue where they got it.

"the most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know that the moment they fight back, their lives as they lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. they fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror. True terror will arrive at these people's door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy..but will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone"

Yup, their last ditch effort to prompt the crowd into a proper riot. John Sullivan had final orders to bring a handful of the more rebellious ones upstairs, sheep for the slaughter. In return, he'd get footage of what sparked the riots and burning of the Capitol and checks waiting for him from CNN/MSNBC. Instead, all he got was footage of somebody being executed and nothing else. But, he still got $35k from each outlet.

It is also possible that he is not connected, but was just "overlooked" though incompetence or connections, and they decided to turn him into a snark hunt - they do that a lot, where the Left refuses to cooperate on things to get the Right worked up over the wrong issue.

Epps gets a lot of focus but he was not the only one. Revolver did a good piece a month or so ago that featured 4 or 5 others who were very involved in doing things like removing security fencing and exhorting people to move into the Capitol who were clearly captured on video and in some cases were in police custody and nothing has happened to any of them.

There was one guy they referred to as Black Ski Mask Guy who was arrested the night before on a bus that was carrying guns. The bus was taken down by at least a dozen cops and everyone onboard was booked and then released. The arrest took place right in front of DC police station.

Black Ski Mask Guy was one of them and the next day he was seen on video helping tear down security fence to allow people onto the Capitol grounds. He's never been arrested or identified yet the cops know exactly who he is.

So is this to create a fury over Eps, and then the dems get to show he is not connected and make everyone look bad? If he was connected, Cruz would have said so in the hearing.

They are just confirming everything we've been saying all along and making themselves look like idiots.


I think this is a fight between two factions in the Biden Junta. The "We beat covid, yeah go us!" faction is trying to say COVID is no longer a big deal, and the "COVID PARTY DON'T STOP" faction is trying to keep the karenwaffen wound up.

So, if it looks messy, its because it isn't the normal "everyone get with the new narrative" operation you normally see.

Worse than that. He said we were domestic enemies. And he took an oath to defend the constitution from enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC. His emphasis on domestic. The question i asked in an earlier thread is are there legal implications to this? Any government employee- esp DoJ has sworn an oath to defend against domestic enemies. And now the president has classified anyone who does not support his voting rights as a domestic enemy.

I think the most salient point of the Dorner affair was the breakdown in law and order. Because he targeted police and their families, the LAPD ground to a halt in search of him. They plunged the city into chaos for over a week during the hunt. They completely lost their equilibrium, shooting three innocent people during their headlong freakout (and then the City whitewashed all of that).

He found a critical weak point, largely by accident, because of his personal anger at the other cops.

I agree. I saw somebody on some forum say that Cruz cracked a sly smile during the Tucker interview, and their backformation was that Cruz was going to grill the DOJ stooge and he couldn't disclose to Tucker that he was, yet.

That's possible, I guess.

Trump had a way of directing press coverage through outrage, the press would shine their light in opprobrium and the real details that they had been trying to ignore would slip out and filter through.

I'm not saying that's what Cruz was doing, I'm just open to the possibility. Maybe our side is getting smart and this was a setup between Tucker and Cruz.
