Conservative pundit Tucker Carlson has released new footage shedding new light on the events that unfolded during the Capitol riots on January 6. The footage, shown on his program on Monday night, revealed Jacob Chansley, known as the QAnon Shaman, being escorted into the Senate by Capitol police officers, which challenges the previous narrative that he aggressively forced his way into the chamber. Chansley was later sentenced to four years in jail for his involvement in the incident.
In addition to this, Carlson also presented footage of Capitol police officer Brian Sicknick, who tragically died after the riot. Initial reports suggested that he had been attacked with a fire extinguisher and pepper spray by rioters. However, a medical examiner later ruled that he had died of natural causes. Carlson shared footage of Sicknick walking around the Capitol after the attack, appearing in good health, which contradicts liberal outlets’ claims that the rioters were responsible for his death.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is using thousands of hours of Jan. 6 security footage released to him by the GOP to explain away the deadly Capitol attack, linking the Republican Party ever more closely to pro-Trump conspiracy theories about the 2021 riot. https://t.co/91Gtn7Lp1V
