(PresidentialHill.com)- On Monday night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson began releasing the long-awaited surveillance footage from the January 6 riot at the Capitol provided by Speaker Kevin McCarthy. The segments shown during Monday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” cast doubts on several of the claims made by the media, the Democrats, and, more importantly, the January 6 select committee.
One of the clips revealed that, contrary to claims, the so-called “Q-Anon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, was not the scary, violent insurrectionist portrayed in the media. The surveillance footage Carlson aired shows Capitol Police officers escorting Chansley through the building without incident, even trying several doors for him. In one segment, at least nine officers are seen near Chansley, and not one of them stopped him.
Chansley was sentenced to 41 months in prison.
The surveillance footage also dispelled the false narrative that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was killed during the riot.
In the footage shown on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Office Sicknick is seen alive and well directing Trump supporters out of the Capitol building while wearing a helmet. Tucker noted that the footage of Sicknick very much alive still included an electronic bookmark in the archives, meaning it was reviewed by staff from the select committee, but never used.
Carlson also aired footage that showed the notorious Ray Epps at the Capitol long after he claimed to have left in his testimony before the committee.
Carlson also exposed the selective editing used during one of the select committee’s hearings that showed Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri fleeing the Capitol. In the clip shown at the hearing, Hawley is the only elected official seen running from the building, prompting laughter from those in the hearing.
But in reality, the surveillance footage was deceptively edited to hide the fact that Hawley was the last of a large group of lawmakers who were evacuated.
