The longtime girlfriend of fallen U.S. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died after battling violent pro-Trump MAGA extremists during the January 6 insurrection, says she blames the former president for death of her partner.
“I hold Donald Trump 100 percent responsible for what happened on January 6 and all of the people that have enabled him, enabled him that day, and continue to enable him now,” Sandra Garza told “PBS NewsHour,” as The Washington Post reports. She is demanding “justice for Sicknick, who suffered two strokes hours after rioters sprayed him with a chemical substance. Sicknick died the next day, at the age of 42, of what a medical examiner said were natural causes.”
Garza called Trump a “horrible person,” and added, “Personally, for me, I think he needs to be in prison. That is what I think.”
