House Speaker Kevin McCarthy granted "Tucker Carlson Tonight" an exclusive first look to over 40,000 hours of security camera footage from the Capitol Building that were hidden from the public for over two years. On Monday, Carlson offered the first glimpses of footage involving key figures from that day, reports Fox News.
While those such as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continue to compare the January 6th protest to “worse than 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and worst things since the Civil War,” the evidence paints a very different picture.
The footage that for over 3 years has been denied the American people shows an entirely different narrative than that told by the Democrats, liberal media, and even turn-coats such as Liz Cheney.
In the most recent media dump, Capitol Police officers were seen escorting Jacob Chansley, a Navy veteran widely referred to in the liberal media as the "QAnon Shaman," around the building without incident. Carlson reported that officers were seen showing Chansley around, even trying to open locked doors for him. At one point, at least nine police officers were seen in close proximity to Chansley, and none of them slowed him down, as Carlson noted and Fox News reported.
Miranda Devine of the New York Post wrote: "You can see the way those people were walking through the Capitol… they are walking meekly, politely queuing, very peaceable. They don't mean any harm. They are treating the Capitol with reverence."
Devine told Carlson, "That doesn't excuse the others, the minority of the protesters who did break windows and fight police and injure police and cause mayhem. But the people who are now being picked up and some of them have been jailed without trial for months, even years on end, did not commit violence. They walked through open doors, they were escorted by police, they felt that this was okay. And I think Jacob Chansley is a classic example of that."
The footage also overturns the narrative that Sen. Hawley fled in fear, Rep. Laudermilk lead a “reconnaissance mission” tour, and other lies told by the January 6th Investigative Committee, despite having the evidence in their possession.
“Virtually every moment of his time inside the Capitol was caught on tape. The tapes show the Capitol Police never stopped Jacob Chansley. They helped him. They acted as his tour guides.” – Tucker Carlson
"If he (Jacob Chansley) was in fact committing such a grave crime, why didn't the officers who were standing right next to him place him under arrest?" – Tucker Carlson
