Following the pro-Trump rally in Washington D.C. Wednesday, the U.S. Capitol building was stormed, leaving four people dead, The Associated Press has confirmed.

D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee said Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was shot by the U.S. Capitol police, as well as three others – two men and one woman – who died in “medical emergencies.”

Babbitt was part of a crowd that was breaking down the doors to a barricaded room where armed officers stood on the other side, police said. She was shot in the chest by police and was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

52 people were arrested and 14 police officers were injured during the demonstrations, according to Contee.

The FBI started an investigation, asking for the public’s help in identifying unlawful individuals. The agency’s Washington field office launched an online form for “information related to violent activity at the U.S Capitol Building.”

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a 15-day extension of the public emergency she called for earlier in the day to “ensure peace and security through the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.”

She added, “Today may be a dark day for our democracy, but there is hope and change coming.”

Judge orders Biden’s DHS to release files on agents accused of censoring election ‘misinformation’

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry made headway in countering federal agents involved in suppressing what liberal tech labeled “misinformation” on social media.

The Attorneys General moved to release testimony from five Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) employees after learning of their participation in the Biden administration’s counter-“disinformation” efforts. On Wednesday, a Louisiana judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to release the files.

Court documents dated Jan. 19 show  the agents participated. The judge’s motion Wednesday could shed light on a “switchboarding” tactic employed during the 2020 election, according to the order.

The lawsuit alleges that the defendants, which include the named individuals as well as President Joe Biden and top officials from a variety of federal agencies, “colluded and/or coerced social media companies to suppress disfavored speakers, viewpoints, and content on social media platforms by labeling the content “dis-information,” “mis-information,” and “mal-formation.”

The Daily Caller reports that the five CISA employees allegedly served as a “switchboard” to route requests from federal agencies to censor disinformation to various social media companies, according to the documents.

Switchboard work employed “an audit official to identify something on social media they deemed to be disinformation aimed at their jurisdiction,” top CISA election security agent Brian Skully testified in a deposition released Thursday.

“They couldforward that to CISA and CISA would share that with the appropriate social mediacompanies.”
