Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo and former President Donald Trump pushed a conspiracy theory about a member of security detail of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) killing Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt for nefarious reasons on Jan. 6.
Bartiromo described the violent rioter as a “wonderful woman” who went to a “peaceful protest,” which was actually the violent Capitol riot.
Trump added: “I’ve heard also that it was the head of security for a certain high official. A Democrat. It’s gonna come out.”
Maria Bartiromo strongly hints that someone associated with Chuck Schumer shot Ashli Babbitt. Completely irresponsible stuff. pic.twitter.com/CDEvkpK64N— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 11, 2021
