senate Republicans condemned blockbuster reporting from Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tuesday after the prime-time host aired new footage of the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021.
On Monday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Fox News published tapes from the Capitol riot two years ago, which undermined central Democrat narratives. Left-wing lawmakers on Capitol Hill spent two years exploiting the few hours of political turmoil to smear Republicans as violent extremists, complete with summer show trials produced by a former television executive.
After reviewing more than 40,000 hours of footage released to them by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, Carlson aired three segments that illustrated a deception campaign put forward by Democrats’ Select Committee on Jan. 6. The first revealed Jacob Chansley, known as the “Q-Anon Shaman” who became the face of the Capitol “insurrection,” was given VIP treatment by police officers and even escorted throughout the complex.
“They helped him. They acted as his tour guides,” Carlson said. “We counted at least nine officers who were within touching distance of unarmed Jacob Chansley. Not one of them tried to slow him down.”
The second segment from Carlson’s program showed Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick walking, “healthy and vigorous,” around the Capitol building after altercations with protesters. Jan. 6 hoaxers on the Select Committee claimed those altercations caused Sicknick’s subsequent death.
