    Default "Law and order" Trump responsible for the death of a DC police officer

    A US Capitol Police officer has died from injuries suffered when he reportedly was struck in the head with a fire extinguisher during Wednesday’s riots.
    U.S. Capitol Police announced late Thursday that an officer hurt during this week's violent assault on the chambers of Congress by protesters loyal to President Trump has died from his injuries.

    "At approximately 9:30 p.m. this evening (January 7, 2021), United States Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick passed away due to injuries sustained while on-duty," a statement from the U.S. Capitol Police said.
    the extremists attacked police "with metal pipes, discharged chemical irritants, and took up other weapons against our officers," U.S. Capitol Police said Thursday.
    On the federal level, 15 cases have been filed against individuals accused of illegally entering the Capitol, possessing a firearm or stealing congressional property.

    One individual was said to have been carrying a semiautomatic rifle and 11 Molotov cocktails upon arrest.

    Sherwin said theft of congressional property could impact national security.

    "Electronic items were stolen from senators' offices. Documents, materials were stolen, and we have to identify what was done, mitigate that, and it could have potential national security equities," Sherwin said.
    Sherwin also said he could not provide information on who was responsible for the two improvised explosive devices that were found at the Democratic National Committee headquarters and the Republican National Committee headquarters, adding that both incidents are being investigated.
    This is squarely on Trump. He incited this, this is what he wanted. He was downright gleeful when he was watching it unfold from the safety of the Whitehouse.

    White House officials were shaken by Trump’s “borderline enthusiastic” reaction to watching his supporters storm the Capitol.

    Federal murder charges incoming


    Prosecutors in the US Attorney's office plan to open a federal murder investigation into the death of Brian D. Sicknick, a US Capitol Police officer who died Thursday night, a law enforcement official tells CNN.

    Sicknick was injured Wednesday when a mob of President Donald Trump's supporters stormed the US Capitol. He died at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday "due to injuries sustained while on-duty," Capitol Police officials said in a statement.
    The death is being investigated by the DC Metropolitan Police Department's homicide branch, the US Capitol Police and their federal partners.
