     The mother of Ashli Babbitt, a protester who was killed during the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, was arrested outside the building at a demonstration that marked the second anniversary of Babbitt’s death.  Ashli was the only person murdered by a mad Capitol guard -  not 5 police died - Biden and Dems have lied.

     Video footage shows U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) detaining Micki Witthoeft, Babbitt’s mother, near the Capitol where a small group of demonstrators had gathered.  According to Capitol Police, Ms. Witthoeft’s group did not have a permit for their demonstration to be held on Capitol grounds.  Ms. Witthoeft, 58, was charged with failing to obey an order and blocking or obstructing roadways. She has been released and given a citation to appear in court at a later date.  “The officers and officials told the group to get out of the road or the group would be arrested,” the USCP said in a statement, adding that Ms. Witthoeft was “given multiple warnings to get out of the road.”

     "Instead of getting out of the road, the woman refused to leave, turned around with her hands behind her back, and asked to be arrested,” according to the USCP.  In one video, police officers are seen directing bystanders holding signs to move to a nearby sidewalk or face arrest. In another video, bystanders ask Ms. Witthoeft if there is anything she wanted to say while she was being handcuffed. “Yeah,” she replied. “The Capitol Police suck a—.”
