A “Federal Murder Probe” is being planned for the killing of a Capitol Hill Police Officer during Wednesday’s riots after he was reportedly attacked and struck in the head with a fire extinguisher.
“Federal prosecutors are opening a murder probe into the death of Brian Sicknick, the US Capitol Police officer and New Jersey native who died after reportedly being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during this week’s riots, officials said Friday,” reports the NY Post.
“The FBI and Metropolitan Police Department will jointly investigate the case, and the Department of Justice will spare no resources in investigating and holding accountable those responsible,” acting US Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen said in a statement.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and fellow officers of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sicknick, who succumbed last night to the injuries he suffered defending the U.S. Capitol, against the violent mob who stormed it on January 6th,” the AG added.

BEHAR GOES NUCLEAR: The View Host Calls Pence’s CHRISTIAN FAITH a ‘Mental Illness’
Left-leaning comedian Joy Behar viciously attacked Vice President Mike Pence’s faith on Tuesday, equating his faith to a “mental illness” and mocking the former Governor of Indiana’s steadfast belief in the power of prayer.
The comic’s intolerant rant began after ‘The View’ played a clip of former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman discussing the Vice President’s faith, where she baselessly claimed on reality television that “Jesus tells him to say things.”
“He’s not very popular at all,” said cohost Sunny Hostin. “I think when you have a Mike Pence who now sort of puts this religious veneer on things and calls people ‘values voters,’ I think we’re in a dangerous situation.”
“It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you,” added Behar. “That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct, he’s hearing voices.”
