Tim Miller Slams GOP Rep. Gosar for Tweet About Dead Capitol Rioter: ‘Ashli Babbitt Is Dead Because of’ Him and Trump
During a discussion on Friday’s All In about Senate Republicans’ successful effort to block the formation of a bipartisan commission to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot, Tim Miller of The Bulwark ripped into former President Donald Trump and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) for spreading the Big Lie that led to it.
Earlier in the day, Gosar tweeted fondly about Ashli Babbitt, the U.S. Air Force veteran who stormed the Capitol and was fatally shot as she tried to break through a door leading to an area where lawmakers were sheltering in place. “They took her life.” tweeted Gosar. “They could not take her pride.”
