The former partner of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died after responding to the January 6 insurrection, says she once supported President Donald Trump but now believes he was a "mastermind" behind the riot.

She also said that Trump's and other Republican's failure to honor those who responded to the riot was "un-American."

In an op-ed for CNN, Sandra Garza discussed her relationship with Sicknick and Trump's response to the Capitol riot.

"To know that some members of Congress - along with the former President, Donald Trump, who Brian and I once supported but who can only now be viewed as the mastermind of that horrible attack - are not acknowledging Brian's heroism that day is unforgivable and un-American," she wrote.

She added that police officers who responded to the scene and people who were injured in the riot are being "re-traumatized every time someone speaks untrue words to describe what happened on January 6."
