U.S. Rep Paul Gosar (R-AZ) offered piercing questions during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing into the mostly peaceful protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, and specifically asked Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen and Capitol Hill Police Chief Robert Conti about the death of unarmed protester Ashli Babbitt.
“Mr. Rosen, do you recall the name of the young lady, a veteran wrapped in an American flag, who was killed in the U.S. Capitol,” began Gosar. Rosen responded, stammering, “I do, uh, her name was Ashli Babbitt.” Babbitt remains the only protester killed at the event, and the only person who died as a direct result of the day’s activities. Officer Brian Sicknick and the other protesters who died were later ruled to have succumbed to natural causes by the Washington, D.C. Medical Examiner.
Gosar then asked Rosen, “Was Ashli Babbitt armed,” which prompted another stammering response from the Biden regime’s Acting Attorney General. “Uh, again Congressman, I mean to be respectful of your observations, but I just don’t want to talk about individual situations.” Gosar then reclaimed his time. “No, Mr. Rosen, I’m reclaiming my time. Mr. Rosen, no she wasn’t. She was wrapped in a U.S. flag,” interjected Gosar. He then asked, “Was the death of Ashli Babbitt a homicide?”

Rosen again refused to answer, falling back to his earlier position. “Congressman, I’m not trying to be unhelpful here, but I just cannot comment,” said Rosen. Gosar again interjected, “I understand, I understand, but, reclaiming my time, as the death certificate says, it was a homicide. Who executed Ashli Babbitt?”
At this point Rosen again refused to answer. “Congressman, I’m just gonna have to say the same thing here, I don’t want to get into the specifics facts of investigations.” Gosar then turned the line of questioning to Conti, and asked, Chief Conti, what are the rules of engagement at D.C. protests?”
Conti then admitted, while stammering, “At D.C. protests sir, yeah, we uh, the only time that, uh, we engage, don riot gear, that kind of thing, is in situations where there’s an actual attack going on, sir. ”
The family of Ashli Babbitt has pledged to file a civil suit against the Capitol Hill police after the Biden Department of Justice opted not to press charges against the still unnamed officer responsible for her death on the same day the Biden FBI arrested the journalist who recorded what may be the clearest video of the officer who shot her.
