Adam Schiff: “Thinking of the families of law enforcement officers we lost that dark day.” No LEO died on J6 at the Capitol.
As everyone knows, including the Democrats telling lies, no police officer died on January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol. Yet to hear Democrats on Friday, you’d think five died at the Capitol heroically fighting for “our democracy.”
A group of House Democrats descended the steps around 10 a.m. for a ceremony honoring the Capitol and Metropolitan Police officers who died in the aftermath of the attack.
“We stand here today with our democracy intact because of those officers,” said incoming House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York.
. . . . At the end of the ceremony, families of fallen police officers read their names as a bell rang out. About 140 officers were injured in the attack, and six died in the days and months afterward.
Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick suffered fatal strokes and died a day after the riot. Sicknick’s estate on Thursday named Trump as a defendant in a wrongful death lawsuit alleging the former president’s “incendiary” rhetoric and false claims led to his death. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Washington ruled the manner of death “natural,” although the Capitol Police said in a subsequent statement that Sicknick “died in the line of duty, courageously defending Congress and the Capitol.”
Capitol Police Officer Howard Charles Liebengood died by suicide after the attack, as did Metropolitan Police Officers Jeffrey Smith, Kyle DeFreytag and Gunther Hashida. And William “Billy” Evans, an 18-year Capitol Police veteran, was killed in a separate attack in April 2021 when a man rammed his car through a barrier.
Evans, as it turns out, was killed by a member of the Nation of Islam, not anyone associated with Trump or the MAGA movement, but let’s not let little things like facts get in the way of the completely phony and false “narrative.”
However, Biden also honored Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans, who was murdered in April 2021 when a member of the Nation of Islam ran over him with a car.
The president strongly implied that Evans’ murder was related to Trump supporters.
“Today is a ceremony to honor heroes of Jan. 6, but also to recognize the late U.S. Capitol Police Officer Billy Evans,” Biden said. “His family is with us today. Three months after Jan. 6, while they were still cordoning off the Capitol because … threats by these sick insurrectionists continued to be profligated on the internet, again all of America saw what happened when Officer Evans was killed defending a checkpoint he had to go through to get to the Capitol because of these God-awful, sick threats that continue to move forward.”
Democrats were all over the place sharing their thoughts about the Capitol police officers who . . . were present at the Capitol on J6 and died of suicide or natural causes days, weeks, or months later.
On the 2nd anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection, my thoughts are with the five Capitol Police officers who lost their lives as a result of the attack.
I will always be grateful for their service to our democracy.

This is utter bullshit.
Four people died on Jan. 6: 2 Trump supporters from heart attack, one from drug overdose, another from being shot by Capitol Police. No police officers died that day.
After endless political pressure, DOJ ruled 1 police suicide a "line-of-duty" death. https://t.co/wTJGcLC1L3

The insurrection on January 6th, 2021 was a day I will never forget. Every day we must choose to stand up for our democracy – like the dedicated Capitol staff and police officers, including the late Brian Sicknick – did that day. pic.twitter.com/u5Tk9PTSJC

The January 6th insurrection was a day of unimaginable horror, but also of extraordinary heroism, as our courageous law enforcement officers protected the Capitol. We are grateful to these heroes, and we continue to pray for the fallen, the afflicted and their families. pic.twitter.com/sm3N4K06Pf
