Partner Of Brian Sicknick Blasts ‘Reprehensible’ Trump For Abandoning Officers’ Families


Sandra Garza, a longtime partner to Brian Sicknick, who was an officer with the U.S. Capitol Police who died very soon after participating in the defense of the Capitol against rioting Trump supporters, still has questions for the former president, against whom she filed a lawsuit seeking damages in connection to Sicknick’s death.

“He would not be able to wiggle out of some of the questions that I would have for him,” Garza said, imagining what it would be like if she had the opportunity to question Donald around a recent town hall event the ex-president did with CNN. “And he would look stupid, because he couldn’t answer those questions. Like why he didn’t call me, why he didn’t call the Sicknick family, why he didn’t call any of the family members of the officers who committed suicide or any of the other people that died or were hurt by his actions. It’s really reprehensible.”

You know what Trump did find the time for? Recording a video message on the occasion of the birthday of Ashli Babbitt, a riot participant who died after she was shot by an officer while she tried to force her way closer to members of Congress. While it’s obviously tragic for most anyone to die, it’s simply not factual to pretend like she is some kind of martyr or a victim of a conspiracy to attack Trump supporters. She was participating in a violent assault. Trump, though, has repeatedly expressed support for participants in the riot, telling listeners at that recent town hall he would — as he’s said before — be interested in pardoning at least some of them.
