LAWSUIT: “The longtime partner of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died after the Jan. 6 riot, filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against former President Donald Trump and two men involved in assaulting Sicknick.

Sicknick, 42, died a day after the attack on the U.S. Capitol by a mob of Trump supporters on Jan. 6, 2021 [protesting the 2020 election]. Washington’s chief medical examiner ruled in April 2021 that he died of natural causes after having suffered two strokes.

The lawsuit, filed by Sicknick’s partner, Sandra Garza, cites comments from the medical examiner that ‘all that transpired’ on Jan. 6 ‘played a role in his condition.'”
