OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
The Capitol police officer who lied during the Jan. 6 hearing has been exposed.
As reported yesterday in a fact-check article, officer Harry Dunn falsely claimed that his fallen colleague Officer Brian Sicknick “died from injuries he sustained in the line of duty defending the Capitol of our beloved democracy.”
The moment was incredibly moving. However, the statement is false because Officer Sicknick did not die from injuries sustained in the line of duty while defending the Capitol.
The Washington Post reported in April that Officer Sicknick died of natural causes related to two strokes on Jan. 7.
The D.C. chief medical examiner confirmed this information to the Post. Sicknick’s autopsy showed no evidence of internal or external injuries sustained in the line of duty. Here’s the clip of Dunn lying:

Now we are learning even more about Dunn.
It appears that he has a history of siding with radical leftist groups. Kipp Jones of Western Journal writes that Dunn is a “raging leftist who supported BLM riots.”
In another serious allegation while speaking to congressional members, Dunn claims “one woman in a pink MAGA shirt yelled, ‘You hear that, guys, this n****r voted for Joe Biden!’ Then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people, joined in, screaming ‘Boo! F***ing n****r!'”
No one had ever—ever―called me a ‘n****r’ while wearing the uniform of [USCP]”

Given other false testimony from Dunn, Jones of Western Journal questions whether we can believe him.
“Can we even believe this man?” Jones writes. “A quick look at his activity on social media during recent years shows him to be a political activist in a uniform.”
Take a look at some of the disturbing statements and images from Dunn on social media:

After seeing these and other posts, we cannot believe Dunn. The officer, despite his years serving as a member of the Capitol Police, is a liar and a left-wing political activist. Every word he uttered after his disingenuous call for a moment of silence should be doubted.
An honest man does not use the death of a colleague for sympathy, or to sell his own version of what he thinks happened on Jan. 6.
All riots are bad, including the one which occurred following a rally to oppose the certification of the 2020 election.
