San Diego news, California news.

Two days after her death at the Capitol, details continue to emerge about Ashli Babbitt who was fatally shot by the building police amid Wednesday mayhem.

The 35-year-old San Diego resident, according to her social media posts, said that she had voted for Obama because he did “great things” to the country.

That was years before she embraced extremist right-wing conspiracy theories through a “potent MAGA online subculture,” sources said.

  • ‘Major Trump supporter’ gunned down at Capitol was 14-year Air Force veteran
  • In 2018, she admitted her hatred towards Hillary Clinton after she became a QAnon follower, “more conspirational, lambasting the media and ‘elites’ involvement in human trafficking.

    Since then, she started to publicly retweet QAnon theories, including the recent claims of a rigged 2020 election. When she attended the fateful Jan. 6 rally, she reportedly talked about another motivation.

    “She first announced she’d be in attendance by replying to a post that reads, ‘We will not let the children be forgotten.’”

    Babbit’s grieving husband said that there one evidence that no one can blame Ashli for: “She loved her country and she was doing what she thought was right to support her country.”
