As Twitchy reported, the January 6 select committee took some liberties with the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick during their primetime televised hearing the other night. Read this tweet from the committee:
On January 9th, two of President Trump’s top campaign officials texted each other about the President’s glaring silence on the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who succumbed to his injuries the night of January 7th. pic.twitter.com/vh4v7qwQYp

The committee’s concern is about President Trump’s “glaring silence,” but did you catch that last part: “… who succumbed to his injuries the night of January 7th.” Except the medical examiner found that Sicknick died of natural causes — he didn’t succumb to his injuries. Even President Joe Biden piled on, saying that “lives were lost” and police were “dripping in blood” and “surrounded by carnage.”
Reuters reports Thursday that a man accused of assaulting Sicknick is to plead guilty.
given this tweet, what do you think he’s pleading guilty to?

George Tanios, one of two men who had been accused of assaulting police, including now-deceased Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick during the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, will enter a guilty plea today, according to a new court filing https://t.co/YIA74vEncN pic.twitter.com/MClU9rIbKI

This may not rise to the legal standard of defamation but, it should.

While tens of thousands of followers will assume that George Tanios is to plead guilty to murdering Sicknick, Reuters reports:
George Tanios, one of two men who had been accused of assaulting police officers during the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol including now-deceased Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to lesser misdemeanor charges.
Tanios, 40, appeared for a virtual hearing in U.S. District Court along with co-defendant Julian Khater. Tanios pleaded guilty to entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds and to disorderly and disruptive conduct on restricted grounds.
Sicknick died of natural causes following multiple strokes the day after then-President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol in a failed bid to block Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.
So they’re getting him on entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct.
Was the accusation what he pled guilty to?

Nope. Not in even in the same realm

“Lesser” charges not associated with the officer’s death.

My God, why do you people burn all your credibility with provable lies?

Even their own headline contradicts this post. But they gotta spin, spin, spin… It’s all they know.
