A police investigation recently cleared Lt. Michael Byrd of any wrongdoing in the Jan. 6 shooting.
The lieutenant shot and killed Babbitt when she tried to climb through broken glass into the Speaker’s Lobby outside the House chamber.
The former president is "threatening law enforcement" like a "mob boss," said Andrew McCabe. "It's just outrageous."
Furious Twitter users blasted CNN for "normalizing" violence by presenting Babbitt as both a "terrorist" and a "martyr" during the Capitol siege.
The 35-year-old pro-Trump protester was shot by an officer while attempting to climb through a broken glass door inside of the Capitol during the insurrection.
