Fox News host Tucker Carlson began sharing exclusive videos of events that took place on January 6, 2021, on Monday night. Without a doubt, the footage aired showed that former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s select committee tasked with “investigating” the protest at the U.S. Capitol withheld evidence that ran counter to what was widely seen as a pre-ordained conclusion.
The evidence presented was “irrefutable,” according to former President Donald Trump, who has more at stake than anyone in America to see the truth come out. So much so that Trump called for the release of all Jan. 6 prisoners. Ironically, CBS News reported on Monday that the Justice Department had reached “a milestone.” Twenty-six months into its criminal investigation, arrests are still happening and the DOJ confirmed that at least 1,000 people have now been charged in connection to the protest, with nearly half still awaiting prosecution.
The footage aired by Carlson showed the man known as the “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, being escorted around the Capitol by officers who were seen trying to open doors for him — the Navy veteran is currently serving a nearly 4-year prison sentence for his casual tour. Other footage showed Capital Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died of a stroke the day after the protest, inside the Capitol directing people after the media reported that he was “attacked” by the mob and struck in the head with a fire extinguisher.
In all caps, Trump declared Tuesday morning: “LET THE JANUARY 6 PRISONERS GO. THEY WERE CONVICTED, OR ARE AWAITING TRIAL, BASED ON A GIANT LIE, A RADICAL LEFT CON JOB. THANK YOU TO TUCKER CARLSON AND SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE KEVIN McCARTHY FOR WHAT YOU BOTH HAVE DONE. NEW VIDEO FOOTAGE IS IRREFUTABLE!!!”
In a follow-up, Trump wrote, “Tucker Carlson a MUST WATCH tonight. Releasing more VIDEO which was ‘HIDDEN BY THE CROOKED J 6 UNSELECT COMMITTEE.’ They should be prosecuted for their lies and, quite frankly, TREASON!”
As the former president noted, Speaker Kevin McCarthy R-Calif., granted Carlson exclusive access to review over 40,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol Building that was kept hidden from the public for over two years.
On Monday night, Trump congratulated Carlson while concluding that the “Unselect Committee was a giant SCAM.” He also said those on the committee should be prosecuted while again calling for those arrested to be freed.
“Congratulations to Tucker Carlson on one of the biggest “scoops” as a reporter in U.S. history,” Trump wrote. “The New Surveillance Footage of the January 6th Events sheds an entirely different light on what actually happened. 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!”
“Great courage shown by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy in releasing the surveillance footage to Tucker Carlson so that our Country, and indeed the World, can see what really went on during the January 6th events,” he added. “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!!!”
