During his Florida rally on Saturday, former President Donald Trump demanded the release of the police officer’s name who shot Ashli Babbitt.

Babbitt was a 35-year-old Trump supporter who was shot and killed inside the Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection. The police officer’s name hasn’t been released yet. It was recently decided that the officer will not be charged in the case.

Babbitt’s husband is currently engaged in a lawsuit trying to get the officer’s name released.
