We all remember officer Brian Sicknick. The brave Capitol police officer who died a day after the Capitol Hill violence of January 6 – the day when the then President-elect’s win was to be certified by Congress. However, those who believed that the elections of 2020 were far from fair created quite the scene right outside the American temple of democracy. In the violence which ensued, officer Brian Sicknick was assaulted with bear spray – a self-defence product not meant to be used against humans. Yet, now the US Capitol Police (USCP) has confirmed that its officer – Brian Sicknick died of natural causes, and not due to some external or internal trauma and/or injury.
“The USCP accepts the findings from the District of Columbia’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner that Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes,” Capitol Police said in a press release on Monday. “This does not change the fact Officer Sicknick died in the line of duty, courageously defending Congress and the Capitol.” The medical examiner’s office determined that Sicknick suffered two strokes and classified him dying of natural causes.
Sicknick’s medical examiner, Francisco J. Diaz while speaking to the Washington Post said the deceased did not have an allergic reaction to chemical irritants that would have caused his throat to tighten, nor did he have any internal or external injuries. Effectively, this means that the bear spray played no role in the death of Brian Sicknick, and of course, he was never physically assaulted. This establishes the fact that Brian Sicknick died due to natural causes.
The medical examination, which has now been accepted by the USCP all but ensures that the Justice Department won’t be able to pursue homicide charges in Sicknick’s death against the two accused – Julian Elie Khater, 32, of Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of West Virginia, who have been arrested and charged of attacking the late police officer.

Trump haters have been relentlessly using Sicknick’s unfortunate death to intensify their hate campaign against the former US President. Until late February, the anti-Trump media had been saying that Sicknick was killed after being struck by a fire extinguisher during the Capitol siege. But that version turned out to be far from reality and a dastardly attempt to defame Trump supporters. The fire extinguisher theory was first spun by the New York Times. However, in February, the publication decided to silently ‘amend’ their original story, and said, “new information has emerged regarding the death of the Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick that questions the initial cause of his death provided by officials close to the Capitol Police.”
Interestingly, Democrats continued using the NYT theory of a fire extinguisher attack having been perpetrated against Brian Sicknick even during Trump’s impeachment trial, which was held between February 9 and 13. This was after NYT had amended its original story and said that Sicknick was not attacked by a fire extinguisher. CNN had also reported how Brian Sicknick was not attacked by a fire extinguisher. As such, Democrats, despite knowing that the fire extinguisher angle was shaky at best, continued using the false NYT excerpt to claim that Sicknick was killed by a blood-thirsty mob of Trump supporters.
That sentence was sourced to a Jan. 8 NYT report with the headline, "Capitol Police Officer Dies From Injuries in Pro-Trump Rampage." But the story was updated after information emerged that cast doubt on that narrative. pic.twitter.com/ovgXWrzWhm

Reports about Brian Sicknick having suffered a stroke have been doing the rounds since February. In fact, Sicknick’s family told Pro Publica in a January 8 report that the doctors had told them he’d had a stroke. But media was not reporting that information. It has taken U.S. authorities over three months to finally begin disclosing information regarding the actual cause of Brian Sicknick’s death, even if half-heartedly. That in itself should raise many eyebrows.
The fact that officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes should put all Trump haters to shame. For three months now, former President Donald Trump and his supporters have been constantly defamed, slandered and ostracised by liberals, democrats and a subservient media in America. The new revelations show just how low mainstream media and its bosses are willing to fall in order to smear Trump supporters and accuse them of crimes they have never committed.
