Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has asked Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, the FBI, and the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department to reveal the Covenant School shooter’s manifesto.
Ramaswamy gave a speech outside Nashville City Hall on Wednesday, urging Tennessee GOP Gov. Bill Lee to reveal the manifesto written by transgender shooter Audrey Hale before the March 27 mass sh00ting at the Presbyterian School.
In the rampage, Hale, 28, ki!!ed six people: Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs, and William Kinney, all nine years old; Cynthia Peak, 61, Katherine Koonce, 60; and Mike Hill, 61.
“I’m here today to make a demand of the governor of Tennessee, the Nashville Police Department, and the FBI,” Ramaswamy explained. “Make the manifesto public.” Tell the truth.”
“In difficult times, we must openly speak that truth,” Ramaswamy concluded. “It is difficult to speak the truth in difficult circumstances, but that is when we most need it.”
“I understand that there are legitimate concerns that we do not want details released that will motivate copycats, I don’t want that. The fellow Americans who earnestly have called for the release of this manifesto, they don’t want that either. And I want to go on record and say it would be perfectly reasonable for the police to redact any sections of this manifesto that lay out specific plans, that lay out specific premeditated plots on details of execution that could be copied by another individual.”
