A DC Metropolitan Police officer who suffered a heart attack while defending the US Capitol has recalled his interaction with GOP Rep. Andrew Clyde and branded it as “disgusting”. Michael Fanone, who reportedly got assaulted with a stun gun multiple times during the January 6 insurrection by former president Donald Trump supporters, appeared on 'Don Lemon Tonight' on CNN Wednesday night, June 16.

He told Lemon that after the infamous riots, he once came across Clyde in the Capitol, but was treated rudely by him. Fanone’s narrative came a day after 21 House Republicans, including Clyde, voted against a bill to honor the police officers who defended the Capitol earlier this year by awarding them the Congressional Gold Medal.

“I was very cordial. I extended my hand to shake his hand. He just stared at me. I asked if he was going to shake my hand, and he told me that he didn't who know I was. So I introduced myself. I said that I was Officer Michael Fanone. That I was a DC Metropolitan Police officer who fought on January 6 to defend the Capitol and, as a result, I suffered a traumatic brain injury as well as a heart attack after having been tased numerous times at the base of my skull, as well as being severely beaten. At that point, the congressman turned away from me,” the officer told Lemon. He also added that as the door of the elevator opened Clyde “ran as quickly as he could, like a coward.”

The Georgia Republican has not commented on Fanone's claim but has repeatedly tried to underplay the violent Capitol building riot and presented a false narrative. In May, Clyde said, “Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures. You know, if you didn't know the TV footage was a video from January the sixth, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

However, the reality is completely different. Evidence of January 6 showed a very violent picture with the demonstrators violently breaking the police barriers and getting aggressively involved with the law enforcement officials. The fateful day took the lives of five people, including a cop, Brian Sicknick. Like several other cops, Fanone was also defending the Capitol building and protecting the congressmen when he suffered a heart attack and concussion. He is still struggling with a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Who is Michael Fanone's wife?

According to reports, Fanone was previously married to Hsin-Yi Wang, also known as Victoria Wang. She reportedly used to work as an executive assistant in DC. It has been said the pair exchanged the vows on June 5, 2010, in DC, after meeting each other at a bar. The marriage proposal came from Fanone's side while they were having a meal at the Park Cafe in Capitol Hill. It is not known when they got separated. However, the two share two daughters together -- Piper Fanone and Seraphina Ming Fanone.
