Capitol Police officer who shot MAGA rioter Ashli Babbitt dead 'should NOT face prosecution, investigators say'

THE CAPITOL police officer who fatally shot MAGA rioter Ashli Babbitt should face no criminal charges, investigators are reportedly saying.

Police investigators made a preliminary determination that charges against the officer are not warranted in relation to Babbitt’s death, people with knowledge on the review told The Wall Street Journal on Monday.

However, officials with the Department of Justice have not come to a final determination, the sources said.

A cop shot Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, as she jumped through a window into the Capitol during the insurrection on January 6. 

The officer was put on leave immediately after the riot as the Justice Department opened an investigation into the incident.
