Fox News host Tucker Carlson has released the first of the January 6 footage, which has given to him by The Speaker of The House, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
Carlson described the scene at one stage as “mostly peaceful chaos.”
“‘Deadly insurrection.’ Everything about that phrase is a lie,” Carlson said on his widely watched weeknight program. “Very little about Jan. 6 was organized or violent. Surveillance video from inside the Capitol shows mostly peaceful chaos.”
Carlson displayed footage of protestors entering the Capitol on January 6th, walking the halls without vandalizing or having any altercations with police officers, including “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley. The protestors also had officers walking behind them and were not stopped when they passed by another set of officers.
Chansley was arrested at a later date and federally charged for “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.” He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison.
“If he was in fact committing such a grave crime, why didn’t the officers who were standing right next to him place him under arrest?” Carlson questioned.
Carlson said the footage proves that lawmakers on both sides were “lying” about what actually happened inside the Capitol that day.
New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said the charges filed agasint Chansley were “very sad,” stating that the footage proves he was “harmless.”
“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.”
Carlson hinted that he will release further footage on Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
