The release of the security footage from the U.S. Capitol Building on Jan. 6, 2021, has been a long time coming, and the revelations that have emerged since Monday night’s premiere of some of the footage on Fox News via host Tucker Carlson have flipped the narrative of the mainstream media and the Jan. 6 Committee on its head.
“Taken as a whole, the video record does not support the claim that January 6 was an insurrection,” Carlson stated on Fox. “In fact, it demolishes that claim, and that’s exactly why the Democratic Party and its allies in the media prevented you from seeing it.”
One of the more shocking disclosures surrounding the events of the Jan. 6 protests at the U.S. Capitol is the story of the infamous “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley, who made headlines in 2021 for entering the Capitol and the Senate floor shirtless while wearing a buffalo headdress and clutching an American flag.
Mainstream media reports had labeled Chansley as an “insurrectionist.” As reported by RSBN, Chansley was sentenced to 41 months in prison for his role in “storming” the Capitol with the other protestors.
However, the surveillance footage tells a very different story.
The video shows Capitol police acting as a “guide” for Chansley, leading him through the building and peacefully guiding him toward the Senate.
The tapes show “that Capitol police never stopped Jacob Chansley – they helped him,” Carlson stated. “They acted as his tour guides.”
The police are seen trying to enter the Senate chamber via multiple entrances, even trying “to open unlocked doors for him [Chansley].”
Carlson noted that he and his team counted at least nine officers who were “within touching distance of unarmed Jacob Chansley – not one of them even tried to slow him down.”
President Donald Trump labeled the video footage as “IRREFUTABLE” and called for the Jan. 6 prisoners to be released.
“THEY WERE CONVICTED, OR ARE AWAITING TRIAL, BASED ON A GIANT LIE, A RADICAL LEFT CON JOB,” he wrote on Truth Social.
