Rep. Gosar’s Rant Inspires Trump’s Attack On Capitol Police Officer, ‘Strung Up And Hung’


He is the dentist no one ever wants to visit. No wonder Representative Paul Gosar’s (R-AZ) family is embarrassed about being related to him. In fact, they publicly denounce him. Not that it makes any impact on the Arizona representative. Gosar’s mind is wrapped around and fixated upon the January 6 Capitol Police shooting. He claims there was a supposed villain “lying in wait” who “executed” an innocent American. Even though Gosar is questioning why she died, he knows the answer, according to The AZ Central.

Donald Trump is relaying Gosar’s demand to identify the officer who shot Ashli Babbitt on January 6 as she attempted to gain entrance to the chamber. On the very same day that the ex-president’s CFO was indicted, the representative tried to move America further into dysfunction. He shot out a provocative statement. Then, the ex picked it up and repeated it at his Sarasota, Florida rally, The Daily Beast wrote that Trump said:

‘Who shot Ashli Babbitt?’

The former president was trying to stir up the conspiracy theories jangling around January 6, intimating that the officer who shot Babbitt was Black. He was trying to change the subjects hurtling around him. Trump urged the crowd on, saying the officer should be “strung up and hung.” Now, we know where “Hang [VP] Mike Pence originated. The ex said:

‘Who shot Ashli Babbitt? We all saw the hand. We saw the gun … Now they don’t want to give the name, but people know the name. People know where he came from. You know, if that were on the other side, the person that did the shooting would be strung up and hung. Now they don’t want to give the name.’

A voice reached above the crowd noise shouting:

‘Hang him!’

Representative Paul A. Gosar (R-AZ) issued a statement in memory of Ashli Babbitt, according to The Forbes Magazine political reporter Andrew Solender who tweeted:

‘Gosar on Ashli Babbitt (on the six-month anniversary of Jan. 6): “We have rejected vigilantism and police abuse for generations… I will not stop my quest to find answers to who killed Ashli Babbit.”‘

Gosar’s statement read:

‘Six months ago today, Ashli Babbitt, a 110-pound woman with nothing in her hands, not a rock, not a stick or a bat, was shot dead by a still unknown Capitol Hill police officer. Her death has been ruled a homicide. Yet, we have very little information about her death. Our fake news media has asked no questions or sought information about this tragedy. So, I have. And now President Trump has joined me in seeking the truth.’

‘In many instances, when a law enforcement officer kills an individual for any reason, that officer’s name is publicly released. There is then an investigation and the public is given updates, briefings and ultimately a copy of the investigation. But not in the case of Ashli Babbitt. Instead, there is a determined effort to cover up the full circumstances of this homicide and the American people won’t stand for it. ‘

‘Why won’t the Department of Justice identify the shooter?  Why won’t the Department of Justice release the nearly 14,000 hours of surveillance video taken on January 6? I have asked for this for months. Why haven’t the SWAT team members standing by Ashli at the moment of her murder been interrogated and their statements released? They were right next to her and saw no threat. Certainly, no lethal threat. Why were there no warnings given or escalation of command and force in proper law enforcement technique? Why have no charges been brought against the shooter for negligent homicide or more?’

‘It is unjust to sweep Ashli’s death under the rug by merely saying she was in the wrong place at the wrong time, as so many have. Her life mattered. We do not allow the execution of citizens by street “justice” in our country. We have rejected vigilantism and police abuse for generations.’

‘Ashli’s family and the American people deserve to know the truth about her death. A fair investigation is needed, and this cannot just be hidden from public scrutiny. Transparency is critical for the public to accept the conclusions. I will not stop my quest to find answers to who killed Ashli Babbitt.’
