D.C. Medical Examiner: Officer Brian Sicknick died of stroke from natural causes, not result of assault
Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters on January 6. The autopsy found no evidence of an allergic reaction to chemical irritants or internal or external injuries.
We have covered many times before the curious lack of medical evidence as to how Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died. The media and Democrat narrative initially was that he died either from being beaten with a fire extinguisher and doused with bear spray.
Sicknick’s death, attributed to pro-Trump rioters, was a leading excuse for a federal law enforcement crackdown on every protester physically at the Capitol that day, regardless of whether they committed violence. The other deaths that day were not at the hands of the rioters, in fact, the only person we know died violently, Ashli Babbitt, was shot by police, who will not be charged.
In what is a bombshell revelation, the District of Columbia medical examiner, in an interview with the Washington Post, reveals that Sicknick died of a stroke due to natural causes:
Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection, the District’s chief medical examiner has ruled.
The ruling, released Monday, likely will make it difficult for prosecutors to pursue homicide charges in the officer’s death. Two men are accused of assaulting Sicknick by spraying a powerful chemical irritant at him during the siege.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Francisco J. Diaz, the medical examiner, said the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick’s throat to quickly seize. Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries.
Recall that on January 8, 2021, the Department of Justice released the following statement as to cause of death (which now turns out to be wrong):
Acting Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen issued the following statement:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and fellow officers of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who succumbed last night to the injuries he suffered defending the U.S. Capitol, against the violent mob who stormed it on January 6th. The FBI and Metropolitan Police Department will jointly investigate the case and the Department of Justice will spare no resources in investigating and holding accountable those responsible.” [emphasis added]
How tragic that Brian Sicknick died at 42. How sad his family was used for political purposes. And how twisted and sickening are the media, the Democratic Party, most of the GOP for leveraging his death to score points against Trump and his supporters. New level depravity.

Democrats used fabricated evidence on Sicknick's death in their impeachment trial writing in a pre-trial memo: "Insurrectionists killed a Capitol police officer by striking him in the head with a fire extinguisher.” https://t.co/1kggQLsVbj
