Court Asked To Unseal Undercover Police Video Allegedly Showing Officer Inciting Capitol Protesters

• by Joseph M. Hanneman

William Pope of Topeka, Kansas, filed a motion on Feb. 21 that would also unseal video shot by two other MPD undercover officers who trailed Ashli Babbitt up the northwest exterior of the Capitol.

One of those officers repeatedly predicted that someone would get shot on Jan. 6, Pope contended in another motion filed in November 2022.

"While my descriptions of the undercover MPD officers are accurate, the media and the public should not have to rely on my descriptions alone," Pope wrote.

"It is in the interests of justice that this exhibit in support of my motion be seen by all."
