Conservative Outlet The Nationwide Evaluation means that officer Brian Sicknick died of pure causes
When Donald Trump started the uprising in the Capitol on January 6, he inspired many horrific acts. 5 people died as a result of the riots. Two police officers involved in the dispute later committed suicide.
The most shocking of the five deaths was that of Capitol Officer Brian Sicknick. Initial reports said that Sicknick was struck in the head with a fire extinguisher during hand-to-hand combat.
Sicknick’s death was an integral part of the property managers’ arguments against Donald Trump during the impeachment process. And it’s devastating.
Conservative outlet The National Review implies that Sicknick died another way and is asking the property managers to prove that the officer was killed by the rioters’ actions.
Andrew McCarthy writes: “If Officer Sicknick died of something the rioters did, it is clearly serious business. In this case, the former President Trump should be held accountable for having played a key role in organizing the violent rally on January 6, for rousing his supporters with provocative rhetoric, and for – as commander in chief of the armed forces – He did nothing to repel the siege of the Capitol. “
The author also notes that the head of the Capitol Police Union, Tucker Carlson, had announced that Sicknick actually died of a stroke.
Of course, outlets like the New York Times had reported that the officer had died of a blow to the head of a fire extinguisher. This report has not been confirmed. However, it is highly unlikely that Sicknick’s death was not caused by something that happened during the uprising.
