It’s been almost four months since the Capitol protests on January 6th. We finally know that Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick (pictured here) died of two strokes the day after the protests. He wasn’t murdered with a fire extinguisher by Trump supporters as the media initially claimed. He also didn’t die from bear spray, as the prosecution and media next tried to claim. The medical examiner cleared that up completely. Sicknick had two strokes – and nothing else contributed to his death. But the corrupt Biden regime continues to hold two Trump supporters as political prisoners and is still trying to pin Sicknick’s death on them.
Those men are George Tanios and Julian Khater. Like dozens of other peaceful Trump supporters, those two men were arrested by the Department of Justice and are being held without bail in DC jail. They’re being held in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day and are being subjected to the same sort of jailhouse beatings other jailed protesters have described.
After the story of Brian Sicknick being bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher, prosecutors rushed to claim that Sicknick instead died from chemicals contained in common bear spray. Both Tanios and Khater had bear spray canisters in their possession on January 6. It’s a common legal product that you can cheaply buy at most sporting goods stores in states where bears live in the woods.
Prosecutors are still trying to claim that bear spray killed Sicknick – and these are the two guys who contributed to Sicknick’s death by spraying. The two men are being charged by the DOJ as a single case. Their lawyer maintains that neither canister of bear spray in the possession of the two men was ever actually fired on January 6th – and the Department of Justice knows this.
To bolster its case, the corrupt FBI released a video that it claims shows Khater and Tanios spraying Sicknick with bear spray. But from that video, you can’t actually tell if Khater, Tanios or even Sicknick were involved. It’s not clear that the spray in the video is bear spray or something else. It’s not even clear if the spray hit a police officer, let alone Sicknick who – again – may not even be the police officer in the piece of video that the FBI is using. But we’re just supposed to take their word for it.
Tanios’ lawyer got downright contemptuous with the FBI agent who arrested the two men, because the agent couldn’t give a straight answer to one question: Were either one of the bear spray canisters in Tanios’ and Khater’s possession ever fired?
The agent just kept being dodgy during the deposition, claiming that the investigation was ongoing. From the transcript of the deposition, the attorney finally asks:
“You don’t have any reason to believe that the bear spray was deployed at all, do you?”
The agent finally admitted that although he has the two canisters in his possession, he hasn’t gotten around to sending them for forensic analysis to determine whether Khater or Tanios ever fired them (let alone fired them at Sicknick).
And they’re in solitary confinement for that, which I keep screaming from the rooftops is considered an international crime against humanity. We don’t treat innocent-until-proven-guilty prisoners this way in any nation in Western civilization.
There’s one more problem with the corrupt Biden regime trying to claim that Tanios and Khater contributed to Sicknick’s death. There’s never been a single recorded instance of a human being dying from bear spray.
The capsaicin in bear spray stings and causes your eyes to swell shut. It makes it tough to breathe as it temporarily closes the mucous membranes in your nose and throat. It causes snot rockets to dribble out of your nose in an embarrassing fashion. But you can’t die from it. The Environmental Protection Agency keeps track of all Americans who die from coming in contact with chemical substances – and it has never recorded a single instance of any human being dying from being hit by bear spray. Oops.
Why are these two Trump supporters still being tortured in horrific conditions in a DC jail, even after the case against them has completely fallen apart? You know why.
