Democrats thought a major political opportunity fell into their laps.
But they got some bad news.
It was the fact that Jen Psaki told one ugly lie about police that instantly blew up in her face.
Democrats seized on the events of January 6 to try and ban Donald Trump from ever running for office again through impeachment as well as smear the broader GOP as the party of sedition and insurrection.
Fueling these baseless claims was the lie that Trump supporters murdered Capitol Hill police officers when they marched into the Capitol.
Initial media reports promoted the falsehood that Trump supporters beat Officer Brian Sicknick to death by bashing his head in with a fire extinguisher.
This lie even made it in to the Democrats’ article of impeachment.
When that hoax fell apart, many in the media floated the baseless conspiracy theory that Trump supporters killed Officer Sicknick by exposing him to bear spray which triggered a fatal allergic reaction.
Even though a Washington, D.C. medical examiner reported that Officer Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering a stroke on January 7, Jen Psaki repeated The Big Lie that Trump supporters killed Capitol Hill Police Officers during the January 6 episode.
“Obviously, the president’s view is that there were a number of officers who lost their lives, paid a tremendous sacrifice, on a day that will be a stain on our democracy for many years to come, and certainly, many who survived,” Psaki added. “This will be a long-lasting trauma. I’d have to check on the letter and the status of that.”
This was a lie.
No police officers died on January 6.
Two other Capitol Hill Police Officers committed suicide days after the events of January 6.
The only person killed as a result of what happened on January 6 was Trump supporter and Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt.
A police officer gunned down Babbitt despite the fact that Babbitt was unarmed and the Capitol Hill Police will not disclose the identity of the officer that killed Babbitt.
Psaki veered the Democrats off their preferred narrative with her falsehood.
In 2020, Republicans defied the experts when the party won 15 seats in the House largely to the strength of attacking the Democrats for wanting to defund the police.
Republicans need to flip just five seats in the House of Representatives to oust Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
Democrats pushed this narrative about Trump supporters being insurrectionist cop killers in hopes of blunting the Republicans forthcoming law and order 2022 campaign message as crime rates in Democrat run cities skyrockets.
That’s why Jen Psaki stood behind the podium at the White House press briefing room and lied about police officers dying during the January 6 episode.
