The wife of the Capitol Police officer who died after the incursion of the Capitol Building is pleading for people to stop saying her husband died because of the riot.
Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died on Thursday, the day after the incursion on Capitol Hill.
Immediately, liberals and their lapdogs in the media began claiming that Sicknick died because of the riot. But now the officer’s widow is telling people to stop saying that because the man’s exact cause of death is still unknown.
In a statement released this week, Sicknick’s family say that “many details regarding Wednesday’s events and the direct causes of Brian’s injuries remain unknown and our family asks the public and the press to respect our wishes in not making Brian’s passing a political issue.”
According to authorities, Sicknick had responded to the situation on Capitol Hill, but did not seem to be doing poorly until he collapsed ours later after he had returned to his office.
He was taken to a local hospital where he died at 9:30 p.m. the next day.
Liberals immediately used the officer’s death as a weapon to attack Trump, his voters, and Republicans.
White man who claims to be black, Shaun King, was one who falsely claimed that officer Sicknick was killed by Trump supporters.
Trump supporters hold down, surround, and beat a Capitol Police Officer during their violent insurrection.
He’s literally surrounded by Trump flags and hats.
Waiting on confirmation on whether or not this is Brian Sicknick, who was murdered by them.
This is Trump-ism. pic.twitter.com/E6OK4Q2pQC

Would this hero be alive today if Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and the rest had not planned, organized and incited a mass riot and assault on the U.S. Capitol?
And the answer is YES.
Brian Sicknick would be ALIVE today if they had not incited the riot. pic.twitter.com/W0I79uhFgw

US Capitol Police chief and upper management vanished during #CapitolRiots, leaving Brian Sicknick and other officers unprepared and overpowered! Trump’s vigilantes killed Ofc. Sicknick, bashing his head in with a fire extinguisher. He deserved better!!https://t.co/LQ4THCEb7J
