The media lied to you, police officer Sicknick was not beaten by a fire extinguisher or killed by bear spray during Capitol Riot

You heard about the death of Brian Sicknick, a US Capitol police officer, shortly after the Capitol Riot. A tragedy for sure but the media lied to you about it. Sicknick was not brutally beaten by a fire extinguisher or attacked with bear spray by rioters. 

He died of natural causes. 

From the Daily Caller:

Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick died from natural causes after suffering two strokes following riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a medical examiner in Washington, D.C. said on Monday.

According to The Washington Post, medical examiner Francisco J. Diaz said that an autopsy showed no evidence that Sicknick suffered any internal or external injuries. There was also no evidence that Sicknick, 42, had an allergic reaction to any of the chemical irritants that were dispersed during the Capitol melee.

 The report undercuts some of the early claims about Sicknick’s cause of death, including an allegation that House Democrats made at President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial in February. 

 The New York Times reported on Jan. 8 that two unnamed law enforcement officials said Sicknick died after being hit with a fire extinguisher. House Democrats cited the report as part of its case to impeach Trump on charges that he cited an insurrection at the Capitol.
