Who is Ashli Babbitt's mother? Slain Capitol rioter's mom says Pelosi ignored 12 calls for help
Micki Witthoeft, the mother of deceased Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt, has revealed how the Democrat politicians have consistently ignored the family's pleas for justice. Babbitt, a former Army veteran and hardline Trump supporter, lost her life at the January 6 Capitol riots after she joined other MAGA supporters in storming the building. She was shot in the shoulder by a Capitol cop when she tried to enter the House Speaker's Lobby by climbing through a broken window. Babbitt later succumbed to her injuries at a hospital, being the only Capitol rioter who was killed. Earlier, her family revealed that they plan to sue the Capitol Police and would seek $10 million in damages.
Now, her mother Micki Witthoeft has directly called out Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dianne Feinstein for refusing to cooperate in her fight for justice. Witthoeft has pleaded to Nancy Pelosi, calling her as many as twelve times, to find out who was responsible for Babbitt's death. However, all her efforts have fallen to deaf ears. "I started with Nancy Pelosi. And I called Nancy Pelosi and I called Dianne Feinstein … from three weeks after Ashli's death to currently… Nancy Pelosi I have called no less than a dozen times. I have never received any kind of correspondence from her. She will not call me back. I've emailed her, she doesn't email me back ... I've had absolutely no response," Witthoeft revealed in a recent podcast with Dinesh D'Souza.
Who is Ashli Babbitt's mother Micki Witthoeft?
"She was in her zone, so happy, having a great day. Until that son-of-a-b***h shot her," Babbitt's mother Micki had said previously to American Greatness.
Though the investigation on her daughter's shooting was closed by the Department of Justice way back in April, Witthoeft is still trying every possible way to bring her daughter justice. The 57-year-old mother believes there were other ways to tackle her unarmed daughter at the Capitol. "She didn’t have to be killed, there were other options. Then they dragged her out like an animal, cleaned up the mess, and went about their business," Witthoeft said.
Babbitt was Micki Witthoeft's oldest child who grew up "determined and strong-willed" with a tomboyish nature. She decided to join the Army while in high school after the 9/11 attacks prompted her to defend the country. “September 11 strengthened her conviction to serve,” Witthoeft recalled.
"She was an avid Trump supporter, she knew that’s where she had to be. She went to all the [Trump] rallies if there was one nearby. She was the political one at our house," Witthoeft said about her deceased daughter. "We knew from the news reports that someone had been shot and killed at the Capitol. So when she called to say Ashli was shot, I just knew. I could tell in her voice. We hoped there was time to pack a bag and get to D.C., but there wasn’t," she revealed about the family's traumatic ordeal.
She further revealed how Speaker Pelosi deliberately ignored her desperate pleas, as the latter dodged her calls over a dozen times and did not receive any response to her emails. Meanwhile, Dianne Feinstein's office dismissed her daughter's death, with one person saying, "Although it's unfortunate, your daughter should not have stormed the Capitol.
"Dianne Feinstein will never have two minutes for you," she said.
