The cop who fatally shot US Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt as she stormed the building was exonerated after an internal police investigation, according to a report Friday.
“No further action will be taken” in the use-of-force probe of the United States Capitol Police officer, whose name has not been released, NBC reported, citing an internal memo from the department.
The Capitol Police’s report clearing him concludes the last remaining law enforcement investigation into the shooting, according to the outlet.
Other details about the findings were not immediately available.
The officer shot the 35-year-old Trump-boosting Air Force veteran in the head as she climbed through a broken door and into the Speaker’s Lobby during the siege on Jan. 6.
The internal investigation backs up a statement by the Justice Department in April declaring that no charges will be brought against the cop, who is reportedly a “high ranking” officer.
Babbitt was a decorated security forces controller who served in Middle East tours from 2004 to 2016, records show. She was also a well-known radical conservative activist and promoter of QAnon conspiracy theories, the outlet reported.
Capitol Police didn’t immediately return The Post’s request for comment Friday.
