January 6th “Shaman” Linked To Capitol Guards

(NewsGlobal.com)- During Monday’s broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson showed the first group of clips from the Capitol surveillance footage from the January 6 riot that was released to the Fox host by Speaker Kevin McCarthy. 

The segments Carlson featured on Monday belied many of the claims made about the 3-hour riot by the news media, Democrat politicians, and the January 6 select committee itself. 

Carlson featured footage showing Jacob Chansley, the so-called “Q-Anon Shaman,” being escorted without incident through the building by Capitol Police officers. At one point, the officers with Chansley even tried to open unlocked doors to let him into specific areas of the Capitol. Another clip shows at least nine officers in Chansley’s proximity and none of them ever attempted to stop him. 


Chansley was arrested and charged with entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, violent entry, and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. He was sentenced to 41 months in prison. 

Carlson noted that if Chansley was committing a crime, why did none of the Capitol Police officers escorting him through the building place him under arrest? 

Carlson also showed surveillance footage debunking the false claim that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was killed during the riot. 

In the footage, Sicknick is seen wearing a helmet and directing Trump supporters out of the Capitol. Tucker noted that the footage of Sicknick still included an electronic bookmark in the Capitol archives, which indicates that staff from the select committee had reviewed the footage by chose not to use it. 


Carlson also showed footage proving that select committee star witness Ray Epps lied in his testimony about the time he left the Capitol. The time stamp on the clip shows Epps still outside the Capitol long after he claimed to have left. 


Another clip revealed how dishonest the select committee was during one of its hearings when it attempted to mock Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for fleeing the Capitol. The unedited clip aired on Monday showed many lawmakers, not just Hawley, being evacuated from the building at the same time. Hawley was the last one to leave.
