Judicial Watch sues D.C. police, medical examiner for records related to Ashli Babbitt’s death
From The Washington Times:
Conservative activist group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit Monday demanding police and medical examiner investigations into the death of Ashli Babbitt, who was fatally shot by a U.S. Capitol Police officer during the Jan. 6 riot.
The lawsuit against the Washington, D.C., government seeks all investigative reports, photographs, witness statements, dispatch logs, ballistics and officials’ electronic communications regarding the investigation into Babbitt’s death.
Judicial Watch said it filed a FOIA request for the records on April 9, but has yet to receive a response.
“The normal course of action in a police-related shooting is to quickly inform the public of the details — but the lack of transparency in the killing of veteran Ashli Babbitt in the U.S. Capitol is unprecedented and obviously political,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement.
