In the aftermath of explosive new January 6 footage revealed by Fox News primetime host Tucker Carlson, there have been false claims made by Biden officials that police officers were killed by protesters during the Capitol riots.
Attorney General Merrick Garland in particular misrepresented the incident and implied that five police officers died due to the January 6 incident.
“I think all Americans saw what happened on January 6th, and most of it saw, most of us saw it,,, as it was happening,” Garland said. “It was a violent attack on a fundamental tenant of American democracy. That power is peacefully transferred from one administration to another. Over a hundred officers were assaulted on that day. Five officers died. We have charged more than a thousand people with their crimes on that day. And more than 500 have already been convicted. I think it’s very clear what happened on January 6th.”
Attorney General Garland fundamentally misrepresented the January 6 incident in his statement. No police officers died due to attacks by January 6 protesters.
U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died a day after the attack, but his death was determined afterward to be of natural causes: two strokes at the base of his brain stem caused by an artery clot.
In the aftermath of the Capitol riots, four Capitol Police and Washington Metropolitan Police officers died by suicide. The Capitol Police officer’s union said about 140 officers were injured during the protests.
In March 2022, President Joe Biden knowingly and intentionally spread myths about the January 6 riot.
“Again, we’re not perfect — we’re not even close — but we never have walked away,” he said. “And Vladimir Putin was counting on being able to split up the United States.”
“Look, how would you feel if you saw crowds storm and break down the doors of the British Parliament, kill five cops, injure 145 — or the German Bundestag, or the Italian Parliament?” he added. “I think you’d wonder. Well, that’s what the rest of the world saw. It’s not who we are. And now, we’re proving, under pressure, that we are not that country. We’re united.”
Such misleading statements made by top Biden officials and U.S. attorneys have the potential to taint jury pools in January 6 cases, particularly on the D.C. Circuit.
Attorney Joseph D. McBride wants to put an end to it. He is now filing a motion to stop the U.S. government from defrauding the American people and thereby perpetrating injustice to J6 prisoners.
We just filed a motion in USA v RYAN TAYLOR NICHOLS to prevent the Government from advancing the false narrative that police were killed by protestors on J6.

“We just filed a motion in USA v RYAN TAYLOR NICHOLS to prevent the Government from advancing the false narrative that police were killed by protestors on J6,” McBride wrote on Twitter.
McBride attached a copy of the motion, which said that his law firm representing Ryan Taylor Nichols was seeking an order to exclude the prosecution from “arguing, mentioning, or presenting claims by Government witnesses at trial, that are unduly prejudicial about the deaths of police officers wrongfully attributed to demonstrations that took place on January 6, 2021.”
Nichols is allegedly implicated in the fire extinguisher incident involving deceased Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick.
“At one point, a person hands Nichols a bottle that looks like a fire extinguisher,” the Longview News-Journal reported on the incident. “Nichols admits to pointing it at officers who were spraying people with a substance and spraying them back.”
“The spray appears to have no effect of any kind, on any one,” the document states, referring to video of the scene. “Ryan has no idea what was in the bottle.”
“Nichols writes that if the bottle contained a chemical that qualifies as a dangerous weapon, Nichols did not bring the bottle and ‘did not possess it’,” the report added.
The motion notes that the prosecution intends to call forth witnesses to insinuate that the fire extinguisher incident may have played a role in Officer Sicknick’s death. The motion would forbid the prosecution from even insinuating the fire extinguisher incident is releated to Sicknick’s death a day later.
“Defendant Nichols hereby places the prosecution on notice that he will call the D.C. Chief Medical Examiner, Francisco Diaz, as a witness — and as a designated expert witness — at trial, if the prosecution raises, mentions, or hints this persistent lie at trial.”
“A motion of this type would be unnecessary under normal circumstances where we would assume care and truthfulness from prosecutors,” the statement added, before referencing Attorney General Garland’s misleading statements.
Tucker Carlson, on his primetime show, refuted Garland’s deceptive claims.

“Joe Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland is a liar,” Carlson said. “He just lied about something that is provably false.”
“No police officers died that day on January 6,” he continued. “None. Not one.”
Tucker Carlson even went so far as to air footage showing Sicknick walking around with a helmet on in the Capitol rotunda following the fire extinguisher incident.

The U.S. government is deliberately lying to perpetuate injustice against January 6 political prisoners. This has become the most egregious ongoing travesty in the history of America’s justice system.
