The DC medical examiner just released the official cause of Officer Brian Sicknick’s death and it turns out, he died of natural causes:

Here’s more from WAPO:
Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes a day after he confronted rioters at the Jan. 6 insurrection, the District’s chief medical examiner has ruled.
The ruling, released Monday, likely will make it difficult for prosecutors to pursue homicide charges in the officer’s death. Two men are accused of assaulting Sicknick by spraying a powerful chemical irritant at him during the siege.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Francisco J. Diaz, the medical examiner, said the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick’s throat to quickly seize. Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries.
The medical examiner noted Sicknick was among the officers who engaged the Capitol mob and said “all that transpired played a role in his condition.”
Sicknick collapsed after returning to his office during the riot and died about eight hours later, on Jan. 7.
Diaz said Sicknick suffered two strokes at the base of the brain stem caused by a clot in an artery that supplies blood to that area of the body. Diaz said he could not comment on whether Sicknick had a preexisting medical condition, citing privacy laws.
A blood clot that caused two strokes was the reason of his death. That’s horrible, but nothing like what Democrats wanted you to think really happened to him. They lied about his death to vilify the mob that rioted in the Capitol, as Tucker pointed out a little over a month after Sicknick’s death:
I’ve always condemned the mob for their stupidly ridiculous riot, but I’ve also opposed lying Democrats for trying to turn it into something it wasn’t. It wasn’t an armed insurrection – it wasn’t even an insurrection at all. It was a bunch of idiots running around the Capitol making a fool of themselves. And nobody murdered Officer Sicknick, nor anyone else for that matter. None of the deaths, except for that of Ashli Babbit, were actually a result of the riot.
The question is why did this take so long to come out? Surely the medical examiner knew this in January, before Democrats all used his death to attack Trump and the MAGA movement. Why withhold these findings for well over 3 months?
