We’ve come to expect dishonesty from the left. Dishonesty from leftist politicians and dishonesty from leftist mainstream media.
So, on the one hand, it’s no surprise when a Democrat lawyer and politician gets busted for lying. What’s surprising is that the proof of the lie comes from a leftist mainstream media newspaper owned by Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
So, here is the setup: non-satire site Not The Bee (their sister site, The Babylon Bee, is the satire site) posted a recent Tweet by Hillary which you can see below.
Here’s a screen shot in case Hillary decides to pull that Tweet:
Now, notice how her justification for calling for an investigation into the January 6, 2021 incident at the Capitol Building is that “They killed a policeman.”
That would seem to be cut and dry, right? Except that it isn’t true. And left-leaning newspaper The Washington Post proves it (again, hat tip to Not The Bee). Peter Hermann and Spencer S. Hsu write,
Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection, the District’s chief medical examiner has ruled.
The ruling, released Monday, will make it difficult for prosecutors to pursue homicide charges in the officer’s death. Two men are accused of assaulting Sicknick by spraying a powerful chemical irritant at him during the siege, but prosecutors have not tied that exposure to Sicknick’s death.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Francisco J. Diaz, the medical examiner, said the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick’s throat to quickly seize. Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries.
Now, Hillary is a lawyer. She, of all people, should know that what she says matters. If she said that someone was killed by conservatives (which is what she implies in her tweet), then that should be the case, but it’s a lie. The police officer who died during that situation died from natural causes. He was not killed by conservatives.
So, the truth comes out from a liberal newspaper, and Hillary was caught in a lie. Sadly, though, it’s incredibly unlikely that the mainstream media will tell you this because they lie everyday, too.
