(Populist Press) Sources close to and within the intelligence community tell Spectator author Cockburn that Ashli Babbitt was actually shot by then vice-president Mike Pence’s protective detail. The VP’s detail is provided by the US Secret Service, not the Capitol Police. One person asserted to Cockburn that this is “an open secret” in the intelligence community.
Law enforcement sources suggested that the Capitol Police Department and Department of Justice have publicly identified the shooter as a Capitol Police officer in order to protect the reputation of the Secret Service. Cockburn also wonders if this isn’t an attempt to protect Pence from further anger or threats from capitol rioters who wanted him to refuse to certify the results of the election on January 6.
