GOP Sen. Cramer ‘Grateful’ That Capitol Police Officer Murdered Ashli Babbitt

While appearing on Tuesday’s edition of the Jay Thomas Show, Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., said he was “grateful” that Capitol Police Lt. Mike Byrd shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed January 6 protester, during an exchange with a caller to the program.

Cramer called Babbitt a “criminal,” even though she was neither arrested nor tried.  She was simply shot and killed.  So much for due process.

Cramer also lied, telling Thomas Babbitt was warned when she wasn’t.  As the Gateway Pundit noted:

This is a bald-faced lie. The officer hid in the shadows, did not utter a word, and then shot Ashli Babbitt in the neck as she climbed through a window. She was unarmed and was not a threat. Lt. Mike Byrd then slinked away after murdering Babbitt in cold blood.

The Hill reported:

“The person that shot her is a police officer shooting a criminal not complying with officers telling her, ‘Stop. Don’t come through that window. We have guns drawn. Don’t do it.’ They’re protecting people, and the officer was found to be innocent of any wrongdoing,” Cramer told the caller. “So then what would be the purpose of releasing that officer’s name? What do you need to know the officer’s name for?”

“Well, because we know everybody else’s name if a police officer shoots a citizen of this country. I mean, crying out loud, if you shoot an illegal alien, we’re going to know that police officer’s name,” the caller argued. “This is a police officer that shot someone in our Capitol, and his name is being withheld.”

Cramer added that the officer isn’t a suspect and that “he’s been found not guilty of any wrongdoing.”

“I’m just grateful for the person quite honestly,” Cramer told the caller.

Got that?  A “Republican” senator is “grateful” that a Capitol Police officer murdered an unarmed protester.

CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski shared the transcript of Cramer’s radio interview to Twitter, The Hill added.

Exit question: Is Cramer also “grateful” for the guards beating and torturing Trump supporters being held by teh DOJ?
