GOP Rep. Markwayne Mullin informed Americans of new information following the events of Jan. 6th.
Mullin reportedly broke with other high-profile conservatives, including former President Donald Trump, who have condemned Babbitt’s death and the secrecy surrounding it.
Mullin claims he not only knows the identity of the officer who killed Babbitt, but he told C-SPAN he actually hugged him following the fatal shooting.
Mullin said, “After it happened, he came over and he was physically and emotionally distraught. And I actually gave him a hug and I said, ‘Sir, you did what you had to do.'”
He continued, “He was doing his job. He got put in a situation where he had to do his job. And if you’re going to present your weapon … and give commands and they still don’t listen and they still approach, you don’t have a choice.”

Western Journal comments further:
Mullin said the officer shot Babbitt “in a manner of self-defense.”
For anyone who has seen the video of her last moments, it is apparent that the unarmed Babbitt posed no imminent threat to anyone.
I was not in the Capitol that day, but the self-defense argument is weak.
It’s especially disappointing coming from a man who represents people just like Babbitt, who was a conservative and a military veteran.
