Lester Holt Is Set to Interview the Police Officer Who Was Found Innocent in the Shooting of Ashli Babbitt

NBC News’s Lester Holt will interview the Capitol Police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, the network announced.

The interview, set to air Thursday, will be the first time the officer publicly reveals his identity since the events of that day. It will also come days after Capitol Police formally exonerated the officer after an internal review found that the officer’s actions were justified.

Babbitt, 35, was one of five people who died as a result of the riot which saw supporters of former President Trump storm the Capitol as Congress prepared to certify the Electoral College results for the 2020 election.
