Capitol cop Brian Sicknick’s girlfriend and mother blast GOP for blocking a Capitol commission


‘Clearly they’re not backing the blue’: Capitol cop Brian Sicknick’s girlfriend and mother blast GOP for blocking a commission to investigate the January 6th Capitol riot

Fallen Capitol cop Brian Sicknick’s mother and partner said that there were ‘tense moments’ during their meetings with GOP senators before they ultimately blocked any commission to investigate the Capitol riot on Friday.

Gladys Sicknick and Sandra Garza told CNN that they met with a number of unnamed GOP senators to plead with them to back an investigation into the January 6th riot.

Officer Sicknick died of natural causes after suffering two strokes according to the medical examiner which were not related to any injuries he might have sustained during the riots.

‘They were very charming,’ Sicknick said, ‘and they knew what they were doing, they knew how to talk to us.’

‘It was tense, and we just made believe everything was fine, and we were very nice to them. For the most part,’ she added.

‘We knew they weren’t sincere. They weren’t sincere.’ 

The Senate vote on Friday was 54-35 — six short of the 60 needed — to take up a House-passed bill that would have formed an independent 10-member commission evenly split between the two parties. 

It came a day after emotional appeals for the commission from police who fought the mob, the family of an officer who died and lawmakers in both parties who fled Capitol chambers in the worst attack on the building in two centuries.

The Republicans were mostly but not totally united: Six voted with Democrats to move forward. Eleven senators — nine Republicans and two Democrats — missed the vote, an unusually high number of absentees for one of the highest-profile votes of the year. At least one of the missing Republicans would have voted in favor of considering the commission, according to his office.
