BREAKING DC Chief Medical Examiner confirms Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes

The medical examiner, Francisco J. Diaz told The Washington Post that the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick's throat to quickly seize.

Brian D. Sicknick, the U.S. Capitol police officer who collapsed after the January 6 attack, in which he was sprayed with a chemical irritant, died the next day of natural causes, the Washington D.C. medical examiner's office ruled Monday.

Two men - George Tanios and Julian Khater - are facing charges they assaulted three police officers, including Sicknick, by spraying them with a chemical irritant on 6 January.

Lawyers for the two men had no immediate comment Monday.

The report's release highlights the shifting understanding of the officer's death since the day after the riot. Diaz added that "all that transpired" during the Capitol riot "played a role in his condition".

Broderick's wife filed for divorce and a protective order after his arrest, the Statesman first reported , citing court documents. She said they responded to an area that included a strip mall, several retail stores with a large apartment complex behind it.

Despite suggesting the siege of the Capitol "resulted in" Sicknick's death, its cause is listed as "acute brainstem and cerebellar infarcts due to acute basilar artery thrombosis" and manner is listed as "natural".

Investigators initially believed he was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, based on statements collected early in the investigation, according to two people familiar with the case.

The medical examiner's office "took the appropriate amount of time to evaluate all the evidence", acting deputy mayor for public safety Christopher Geldhart told the Post. The ruling, released Monday, exposes one of the biggest lies the mainstream media has ever told, that Officer Sicknick died at the hands of rioters because of former President Trump. They each faced an array of charges, including assaulting a federal officer with a risky weapon and conspiracy, although authorities stopped short of charging them with his death.

Congress held a tribute to the officer, having him lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda, on February 2.
