(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As the Left, gripped by ever-increasing “insurrection psychosis,” attempts to portray all Republicans as regime threats, they have been joined by Sandra Garza, the ex-girlfriend of deceased Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who is seeking to cash in on her moment in the spotlight.
That includes filing a $10 million “wrongful death” lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and two Jan. 6 participants who allegedly sprayed Sicknick with chemicals in the hours before he died of natural causes, American Greatness reported.
Before a melodramatic Biden administration ceremony last week commemorated the second anniversary of the Jan. 6 protest, House Democrats—mostly radical defund-the-police advocates—held a moment of silence for Sicknick and other “fallen” police officers.
Standing behind former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at the event was Garza, playing the role of Sicknick’s grieving widow, despite her having broken up with Sicknick months before the protest.
Garza has long sought to take advantage of her winning lottery ticket in the untimely passing of Sicknick, 42, who suffered two strokes caused by a blood clot near his brain stem after returning home from the four-hour uprising at the U.S. Capitol in January 2021.
“You could have avoided the bloodshed that took place, including the suicides that took place after,” Garza told CNN’s Jake Tapper at the time.
There is no evidence that either Sicknick’s death or the subsequent suicides of Capitol and Metro police officers in the weeks and months after the protest were linked to their Jan. 6 involvment.
However, Democrats immediately capitalized on those deaths to push spurious political talking-points and to deflect from the actual bloodshed following the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt.
The lack of proof notwithstanding, Garza—with the aide of infamous anti-Trump lawyer Mark Zaid—is now asking for up to $10 million dollars on behalf of Sicknick’s estate.
“The peaceful transfer of power is a sacrament of American democracy,” her attorneys wrote in a complaint filed a day before the ceremony.
“Defendant Donald Trump, together with other co-conspirators, defiled that orderly transition through a campaign of lies and incendiary rhetoric which led to the ransacking of the United States Capitol as part of an insurrectionist effort on January 6, 2021,” the filing continued. “… That attack on the United States Capitol cost U.S. Capitol Officer Brian Sicknick, who was bravely defending the cradle of American Democracy, his life.”
