Ashley Babbitt’s mother is cleared of charges following a January 6th anniversary protest.

Prosecutors in Washington, D.C., dropped charges against Ashley Babbitt’s mother after her arrest for blocking traffic near the Capitol on the two-year anniversary of her daughter’s murder by a Capitol police officer.

Miki Wittoft was released on the day of her arrest. Prosecutors said Thursday they refused to move forward with the case.

Babbitt was fatally shot and killed by a Capitol police officer as she attempted to force the doors to the chamber of the House of Representatives inside the Capitol on January 6, 2021, when she joined a crowd that broke into the building as Congress met to confirm the results of the 2020 election.

Federal prosecutors closed the murder investigation without filing any charges against the officer, and an internal investigation by the Capitol Police found that the officer’s use of force was reasonable. However, Babbitt’s death has emboldened Trump supporters and far-right advocates who have portrayed her as a martyr, demanding that the officer who fired the fatal shot be prosecuted.
