WATCH: Tucker questions why investigators didn’t interview the DC officer that killed Ashli Babbitt

Wednesday, Tucker Carlson questioned Tucker Carlson asks why Congress and investigators did not interview Michael Byrd, the Capitol Hill police officer that killed Ashli Babbitt during the January 6th riot.

“In an investigation of a shooting death, any shooting death the first step is always to speak to the person who pulled the trigger,” Carlson said. “That’s not always possible, obviously but it is always the goal. Every time. Naturally, everyone assumed that would happen in the case of Michael Byrd, he’s the one who killed an unarmed woman called Ashli Babbitt without warning in the Capitol last January 6th. Byrd is a senior Capitol Hill police officer.”

“He has a documented and a public history of dangerous and reckless behavior with a firearm,” Tucker continued. “So obviously, investigators would interview Michael Byrd as they tried to determine whether actually Babbitt’s killing was justified. No one doubted that. But today we learn that never happened. According to officials in the Washington, D.C. police department, Byrd was never interviewed by investigators. Byrd never gave a statement about what he had done.”

“It all comes from a shocking new piece in RealClear Investigations that reveals Byrd did not even invoke his Fifth Amendment right to silence. The FBI And D.C. Police just didn’t talk to him. Apparently, they didn’t want to. They didn’t want the details,” he added.
