Never Trumpers Continue to Soil the Nation

The Never Trump arm of the Republican party is stooping to new lows, using the death of a police officer as a prop.

Officer Brian Sicknick passed away from natural causes shortly after the January 6 U.S. Capitol riots. However, rather than joining the country and mourning his death, disgraced former U.S. Representative Barbara Comstock is using Sicknick to promote her own agenda.

Comstock’s Stance

Comstock has been extremely vocal as of late, pushing aggressively for the formation of the January 6 commission. Her reasoning is that Sicknick did not die of natural causes as the autopsy detailed, but that his death happened at the hands of protestors.

Comstock has gone so far as to using Sicknick’s grieving mother as a prop, by posing in a picture with her.

What the Autopsy Revealed

While it may be tempting to blame Sicknick’s death on the events of January 6, the truth revealed from a medical examiner tells a different story. According to the official report, Sicknick did not die as a result of injuries or trauma on January 6. Instead, he lost his life after suffering a stroke the next day. The medical examiner did not find any evidence of blunt force trauma or anything else that would have led to the stroke and his subsequent death.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is that Comstock is using Sicknick’s death and his poor mother to promote her own agenda that former President Donald Trump had a hand in instigating the riots at the Capitol. This opportunistic attitude is yet another example of how this arm of America is using the tragic events at the Capitol to their advantage.
