On Monday, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, during his broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” aired, and discussed some of the footage from the Capitol on January 6, 2021, that he had received from House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Producers, Carlson said, had poured thoroughly over the footage “for three weeks”. Further he indicated, that producers had consulted and worked with Capitol Police in making slight, “very reasonable” modifications, that Carlson indicated did not affect the footage in any significant way.
Reacting to Carlson’s’, release of the new and unseen footage from the Capitol Hill riot, that unfolded on January 6, 2021, which appears to portray a clearly different picture than the one that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) painted, Former President Donald Trump celebrated the segment, calling it one of the biggest “scoops” in U.S. history. He further demanded that the January 6 protesters be released.
Trump postedon his Truth Social account-
“The Unselect Committee was a giant SCAM, and has now unequivocally been stamped as CRIMINAL FABRICATORS OF THIS MOST IMPORTANT DAY,”... “Pelosi & McConnell failed on security. The Police story is sad and difficult to watch. ‘Trump’ and most others are totally innocent, LET THEM GO FREE, NOW!” and…
“A whole new, and completely opposite, picture has now been indelibly painted. The Unselect Committee LIED, and should be prosecuted for their actions. Nancy & Mitch were a disaster on Security. Thank you, Kevin and Tucker. FREE AT LAST!!!”-Former President Donald Trump
Throughout the segment on Monday, Carlson showed footage of scenes that ran contrary to some of the narratives put forth by committee members, such as former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and others on the January 6 committee. It was anything but an “insurrection.” as they have claimed. Carlson discussed that while some of the people, who entered the Capitol were “hooligans” and committed vandalism, others inside the Capitol that day were not and can be seen being respectful of the building.
Yes, there were a few rioters but most participants were respectful, law abiding citizens, who were quietly milling around looking at photos on the walls, taking selfies and being escorted by capitol police, through the corridors in relative lines. They did not appear to realize they were doing something unlawful. It was shockingly unlike anything the committee has proclaimed and the footage they doctored for the media. The American people have been literally lied to, and sold a bill of bad goods, all in an effort to discredit Trump. The truth is out!
A particularly shocking piece of footage, actually appeared to show Jacob Chansley, a.k.a. the “Qanon Shaman,” being calmly escorted through the Capitol by police officers. He was not any more disrespectful than the rest, he just happened to be in costume. In some of the security footage aired by Carlson, Chansley is seen walking near police, in the Capitol building unobstructed. He was even heard praying for the Capitol Police and other attendees, in the chambers. For this Chansley was sentenced to four years in prison. Maybe Liz Cheney or Nancy Pelosi should serve his sentence.
According to Breitbart News-
“One portion of the footage from the Capitol that Carlson discussed touched on the timing of and cause of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s death. Carlson said the footage shows Sicknick was alive after he was allegedly killed by people at the Capitol and the footage was viewed by members of the January 6 Committee, who refused to release it to the public.”-Breitbart News
Of further note, is the fact that in 2021, the D.C. Medical Examiner’s office concluded that Officer Sicnick’s death was due to natural causes, a finding the U.S. Capitol Police accepted.
