Over 100 days since the Capitol riots of Jan. 6th, Ashli Babbit‘s family is preparing to file a lawsuit against the Capitol Police and the officer that shot and killed her. Terry Roberts is the lawyer representing the family and plans to file within the next 10 days. Roberts told Zenger News that they will be seeking $10 million.

Babbitt, a 14-year Air Force and Air National Guard veteran, was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer while she and a mob were standing in the doorway leading to the House Speaker’s Lobby of the Capitol. The officer shot her as rioters attempted to smash through the door, and the chaotic moment was captured on video and quickly spread throughout social media shortly thereafter.

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
