Fox News host Laura Ingraham interviewed a man who described the situation leading up to the fatal shooting of a woman in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
The man, identified as Tayler Hansen, said he had spoken to 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, a San Diego resident who served four tours with the Air Force, just 10 minutes before the shooting in a hallway of the building.
He rejected the notion that Hansen posed a threat to others. “She was literally there just to support her president. She wasn’t being violent. She wasn’t breaking anything. She just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Hansen said.
Earlier in the day there were pro-Trump protests in Washington, D.C., before Congress met to count the Electoral College results and certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. Around the time lawmakers in the House and Senate began the process, people gathered, at Trump’s behest, outside the U.S. Capitol.
