J6 Commission: Republicans Should Invoke the Officer Michael Byrd Defense

The J6 Commission is the Establishment’s latest Mueller Investigation. A Total BS wind machine whose only purpose is to fill the media’s sails. Keep their fantasy narrative alive. And seeing it for what it is, some Republicans have refused to cooperate.

As Ian reported earlier today, Speaker McCarthy is refusing to cooperate.


If you recall, the FBI recently sent a spokesperson to a Senate hearing on that same event.  Every time Senator Ted Cruz asked her a question — and they were pretty simple questions, to which she clearly knew the answers — she just said, ‘I can’t answer that question.’

’Instead of saying that he won’t cooperate with the committee, McCarthy should say:  ‘Sure, I’ll cooperte.  I’ll give you the same level of cooperation as the FBI.’  Then he should show up and just keep saying ‘I can’t answer that question’ until they get tired of asking questions.


That’s good advice, but I think this may be better.

Officer Michael Byrd murdered Ashli Babbit. The DC coroner declared it murder, but Byrd walked. He was exonerated. What has not been reported is that Byrd refused to cooperate with authorities.


…, investigators cleared Byrd of wrongdoing in the shooting without actually interviewing him about the shooting or threatening him with punishment if he did not cooperate with their criminal investigation.

“He didn’t provide any statement to [criminal] investigators and they didn’t push him to make a statement,” Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts said in an RCI interview. “It’s astonishing how skimpy his investigative file is.”

Roberts, who has spoken with the D.C. MPD detective assigned to the case, said the kid-glove treatment of Byrd raises suspicions the investigation was a “whitewash.”

The lawyer’s account appears to be backed up by a January 2021 internal affairs report, which notes Byrd “declined to provide a statement,” D.C. MPD documents show.

Asked about it, a D.C. MPD spokeswoman confirmed that Byrd did not cooperate with internal affairs agents or FBI agents, who jointly investigated what was one of the most high-profile officer-involved shooting cases in U.S. history.

“MPD did not formally interview Lt. Byrd,” deputy D.C. MPD communications director Kristen Metzger said. And, “He didn’t give a statement while under the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation.


MPD, FBI, and DOJ ignored the finding of murder as well as pictures, video evidence, and eye-witness testimony, none of which was of any interest.

And Byrd refused to give a statement. No cooperation at all and he walked away without a mark on him.

Be a learning machine.

Anyone called before the J6 Commission can do what the FBI spokesperson did. Just say I can’t answer that. They could, if so inclined, actually invoke the 5th amendment. But if neither of those things seems like it will play well in the media -if you care – claim the Officer Michael Byrd Defense and dare them to ask you what that means.
