The President Trump supporter killed in the Capitol building Wednesday
is an Air Force vet from California who tweeted a day earlier how “nothing will stop us” and “the storm is here.”
Ashli Babbit, who had 14 years in the service and did four tours of duty, was married and lived near San Diego, her husband Aaron told KUSI-TV.
The day before she was fatally shot
— apparently by Capitol Police, Babbit tweeted
, “Nothing will stop us…. they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours….dark to light.”
Babbitt, who used the Twitter handle CommonAshSense, also retweeted Wednesday morning — a few hours ahead of her and other Trump supporters storming the Capitol — a “MUST BE DONE LIST before Congress meets today.” It included, “Mike Pence@vp @Mike_Pence must resign & thereafter be charged with TREASON,” and, “Chief Justice John Roberts must RESIGN.”
Those who breached the Capitol building were protesting Congress’s impending certification of Joe Biden's electoral votes.
Babbitt took a fatal bullet to the chest during the mayhem inside the Capitol. Video footage captured the sound of the gunshot, and showed the woman crumpling to the floor from multiple angles.
She was apparently shot by Capitol Police, law-enforcement sources told the New York Post.
