Fox News Channel’s beloved host Tucker Carlson recently began airing the footage of January 6th that he received from Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy. Speaking about the clips he shared on Monday, Tucker said that the footage from the day that he was releasing “demolishes” the claims Democrats have made that an “insurrection” occurred.
As background, Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy gave Tucker Carlson and his team exclusive access to over 41,000 hours of video footage of the day’s events, Axios reported. Tucker is now releasing it, much to the outrage and consternation of the corporate media and Democrats.
Speaking about that footage, Tucker said “We are about to show you surveillance footage from inside the United States Capitol. The images you will see were recorded 26 months ago today on January 6th, 2021. Until now, politicians have kept this tape hidden from the public. There is no legitimate justification for that and there never has been.”
Continuing, Tucker explained that the videos demolish the claim that there was an insurrection and explained why the Democrats and their media allies want to keep the footage suppressed and hidden, saying:
“Once you see the video, you will understand why. Taken as a whole, the video record does not support the claim that January 6th was an insurrection. In fact, it demolishes that claim.”
“That is exactly why the Democratic Party and its allies in the media prevented you from seeing it. By controlling the images you are allowed to view from January 6th, they control how the public understood that day.”
Watch Tucker here:
Explaining the precautions he and his team took when releasing the footage and explaining why most of the more than 40,000 hours of footage wasn’t particularly interesting or usable, Tucker added that:
“Our producers had unfettered access to the Capitol surveillance video. Neither the speaker’s office or the bosses at Fox News interfered in any way with our investigation. And the 40,000 or so hours of tape, most of it turned out to be irrelevant. Static shots of empty rooms and in some cases far from the Capitol itself. To find relevant videotape our producers were given the use of Capitol computers with advanced mapping software that made it easy to find what we were looking for.”
“The usual hyenas in Congress and on cable news have been howling about we are putting lives at risk by showing this tape to the public. Given that these are the very same people who support open borders and defunding the police, it is hard to take their complaints seriously. We do take security seriously. Before airing any of this video we checked first with the Capitol police. We are happy to say the reservations were minor and for the most part they were reasonable.”
And so he was able to release the clips and start exposing the lies of those like Nancy Pelosi, Liz Cheney, and their allies over at CNN and MSNBC about January 6th.
