The Justice Department released videos showing rioters attacking Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick with a chemical spray during the Jan. 6 insurrection. 

Sicknick, who was trying to fend off rioters at the U.S. Capitol, died the day after the attack. He had two strokes, and his death was deemed “natural.” 

The videos are being used as evidence in the case against two men accused of assaulting Sicknick and other officers. 

The videos includes surveillance and body camera footage taken during the siege. 

Media outlets were given access to the videos, which still aren’t available for broadcasting. 

The Justice Department recently said it anticipates charging more than 500 people in connection with the riot.

The riot led to the deaths of five people, and more than 130 officers were injured. 

FBI Searches Rudy Giuliani’s Home, Office As Inquiry into Ukraine Accelerates

Rudy Giuliani

By Steve Neavling

FBI agents on Wednesday executed a search warrant at the New York City apartment and office of Rudy Giuliani, seizing cellphones and computers. 

The former New York City mayor who became President Trump’s personal attorney has been under investigation for his dealings in Ukraine, where Giuliani had sought damaging information about President Biden.

Giuliani’s attorney Robert J. Costello told The New York Times that the searchers amounted to “legal thuggery” and that his client offered to answer prosecutors’ questions.

In a statement, Giuliani said the search warrants were a “corrupt double standard” by the Justice Department, which he insisted had ignored “blatant crimes” by Democrats. 

One of the warrants sought communications between Giuliani and several Ukrainian officials and two former prosecutors. 

The FBI also search the home of Victoria Toensing, another lawyer who dealt with Ukrainians in the quest for damaging information on Biden and his son.
