On Monday night, Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson dropped unseen footage from the January 6, 2021 Capitol protest which revealed that the entire Democrat / RINO / MSM narrative underpinning the event was a complete lie.
For starters, the surveillance footage show Capitol Police calmly escorting the so-called “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, throughout the Capitol complex, and even helped him find open doors.
“The tapes show the Capitol police never stopped Jacob Chansley,” said Carlson. “They helped him. They acted as his tour guides.”
Chansley, shirtless, adorned in red, white and blue face-paint and wearing a furry bison-head hat, emerged as one of the most iconic symbols of Jan 6. He was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison for “obstructing an official proceeding.”
The video of Chansley is jarringly inconsistent with the leftist characterization of Jan. 6 as an “insurrection.” Far from thwarting Chansley’s ambition to reach the Senate chamber, two Capitol police officers escorted him there.
Along the way, the trio passed a large group of Capitol police officers, who appear disinterested in Chansley, even despite his flamboyant attire.
The video shows Chansley and his police escorts approaching various doors to the chamber, with a police officer pushing and pulling them to see if they’re unlocked.
In light of the new video, it’s clear that a Nov 2021 Department of Justice press release hailing Chansley’s prison sentence gave a grossly misleading description of how the Navy vet and Arizonan reached the Senate chamber: “Chansley continued into the building through a broken door at approximately 2:14 p.m. He kept moving, reaching the Gallery of the Senate and then the Senate floor.”
“We counted at least nine officers who were within touching distance of unarmed Jacob Chansley,” said Carlson on Monday. “Not one of them even tried to slow him down.” …
