Slain Capitol Cop’s Mother Looks to Sway GOP on Jan. 6 Commission

The following article, Slain Capitol Cop’s Mother Looks to Sway GOP on Jan. 6 Commission, was first published on Flag And Cross.

The Republican Party has made it very clear:  They are not interested in rehashing the events of January 6th in front of Congress and the American people.  They’re concerned that the Democrats are attempting to make this a political issue, or that they’ll use it as way to re-try then-President Trump on the issue.

In either case, they aren’t budging.  And that has remained true even after a meeting with the mother of a Capitol Police officer who died as a result of the attempted insurrection.

The mother of fallen Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick and another D.C. police officer injured on the job during the Capitol riot will meet with GOP senators on Thursday to push them to support a proposed bipartisan commission to investigate the events of Jan. 6 — a measure Republicans are poised to block.

Gladys Sicknick, as well as Brian Sicknick’s longtime girlfriend Sandra Garza, had been seeking sit-downs with every single Senate GOP office to emphasize “the importance” of establishing an independent body to investigate the deadly insurrection, according to a copy of one of the scheduling request emails obtained by POLITICO. Brian Sicknick died a day following his response to the Jan. 6 attack after suffering from a stroke.

And she’s bringing reinforcements with her.

Michael Fanone, who suffered a heart attack and concussion while responding to the Jan. 6 attack, and Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn, who was pepper sprayed and maced while defending the Capitol, are slated to join Sicknick and Garza in some of their Senate meetings. Fanone had unsuccessfully sought a face-to-face with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy when that chamber was deliberating over the riot commission bill.

Early indications are that there will be no change coming out of this meeting, with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell seemingly unwilling to budge on the issue.

It was not an “insurrection” and the cop had a stroke which would of happened at any time.


Why rehash something that we all know what really happened on Jan 6th, 2021? President Trump had a political rally in Washington, D.C., on Jan 6th, 2021 and the rally was infiltrated by Antifa and BLM people who encouraged everyone to go to the Capitol Building. Once there, the people were escorted into the building by Capitol police. Then, John Sullivan, a BLM/Antifa member told the people to break into the offices and burn the building down. He was beside the only person killed that day (Ms. Babbitt, an unarmed Air Force veteran) who was attempting to enter the office… Read more »
