Trump bids Ashli Babbitt, a Capitol rioter, a ‘happy birthday,’ and demands justice for her family.
‘As we commemorate her life, we repeat our appeal for a thorough and unbiased investigation into Ashli Babbitt’s death,’ added the former president.
Former President Donald Trump greeted Ashli Babbitt, who died in the Capitol riots, a “happy birthday.” During the Capitol building insurgency on January 6, Babbitt was fatally shot. He also asked that the Department of Justice re-investigate her death (DOJ). Trump’s message was purportedly given in a film that was reportedly shown at the ‘Texas Loves Ashli Babbitt’ rally in Freeport, Texas, on Sunday, October 10.

Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and supporter of QAnon conspiracy theories, was one of many who attacked the Capitol building earlier this year as lawmakers convened to confirm then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election. On January 6, she was shot as she attempted to approach a door leading to the House of Representatives.
