capitol riot aftermath
Sandra Garza, the longtime partner of the late Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, told CBS News in an interview that aired Tuesday that former President Donald Trump deserves blame for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot after which Sicknick died of a stroke.
"I was a person who supported Donald Trump," Garza explained. "Brian was a supporter of his. I mean, even on Brian's Twitter page, he had Donald Trump's personal plane … as his background picture."
Trump, Garza said, knew Sicknick "was devoted to him," but never reached out to her or Sicknick's mother after his death. "He didn't even send a letter of condolences, he did absolutely nothing," Garza said.
