The statement SG made implied that five people died as a result of Jan 6 action when in fact they died of natural causes.

There are arguably 9 deaths associated with the January 6 insurrection. And there's no way to call 5 of them by natural causes. Among the protestors/rioters/insurrectionists there are 4. Two heart attacks, one drug overdose, one shot by police. There are 5 among the police forces that responded on Jan 6 and worked to maintain order in the following days. One stroke and 4 suicides.

No matter who you want to include and exclude, the best I can get to is 3 by natural causes - 2 heart attacks and a stroke. Drug overdose is not a natural cause. Neither is a shooting, nor suicides.

So your statement that five people who died as a result of Jan 6 action died of natural causes is also a misleading statement.
