Tucker Carlson released portions of surveillance footage from Jan. 6 at the Capitol that provided dramatic revelations previously withheld from the select committee investigating the riot.
Political Insider reported last week that Carlson is set to soon release portions of 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage of the riot.
“They’re lying,” he said. “And we know because we’re watching the tape.”
On Monday, the Fox News host released video excerpts that prove that yes, he is lying, as he and many other conservatives have predicted on a variety of topics.
Here are some of the biggest takeaways from Carlson’s bombshell report.

Brian Siknik lied about his death
Democrats and the media tried hard to make Capitol Police Officer Brian Ciknik the face of a ‘violent uprising,’ repeatedly portraying his death as the result of a bloodthirsty mob.
We knew it was fake news from the start, as the medical examiner in Washington ruled Cicnik’s death to be from “natural” causes and “not hastened by injury.”

What we are did not Know how deep the misrepresentation runs.
Surveillance footage released Monday by Tucker Carlson shows earlier claims that Siknik’s death was a quick blow to the head from a fire extinguisher are false.
In fact, the videos show Siknik walking around the premises often while guiding Trump supporters out of the building while wearing helmets. It shows him walking through the building, healthy, alert, and unharmed, “after he was murdered by the mob outside.”
This is quite an achievement.
“This tape undoes the single most powerful and politically useful lie Democrats told us on January 6,” Carlson told his audience.

Lies About ‘Violent’ Crowds – Especially ‘QAnon Shaman’
Jacob Chanceley, known as the “QAnon Shaman,” was sentenced to 41 months in prison for his role in the January 6 riots.
But Tucker Carlson’s video release shows Chancely, the so-called mutiny, doing little more than walking around the Capitol under police escort throughout his visit.
Authorities never try to arrest the man — he’s now serving years behind bars because his actions are so reprehensible that he deserves more prison time than many criminals in Democrat-run states.
“The footage does not show a riot or riot in progress,” Carlson tells viewers. “Instead, it shows police escorting protesters through the building, including the now infamous ‘QAnon Shaman’.”
The Fox News host showed video clips revealing Capitol Police officers were ‘distraught’ by Chanceley’s actions, trying to open the locked doors so he could continue his tour.
At one point, nine such officials could be seen near the ‘shaman’ and none tried to stop him from walking the premises.
I was told that the Kuanan shaman was leading the rebellion, not the one being policed throughout the capital building. No wonder all the footage is kept by us for 2 years.
As usual they lied to us all! pic.twitter.com/nzWWIgryiz

Tucker Carlson’s January 6th Bombshell Shows Barry Loudermilk’s ‘Reconnaissance Tour’ Is a Flat-Out Lie
Remember when the House Select Committee on Jan. 6 accused GOP lawmakers of going on a ‘reconnaissance tour’ before the riots at the Capitol?
Yeah, that didn’t happen either.
A political insider wrote last year that Georgia Republican Rep. Barry Loudermilk led one of the tours.
Although the Capitol Police outright denied their claims, the highly partisan committee continued to push the conspiracy theory, refusing to plant the seeds of doubt.
Carlson showed footage of Loudermilk giving a tour of a congressional building across the street — not the Capitol — none of whom had ties to the so-called “revolt.”
Never-before-seen footage of January 6th was released in its entirety by Congressman Barry Loudermilk allowing the J6 rioters to conduct a “reconnaissance operation” the day before.

Senator Josh Hawley running from the crowd
On January 6, the Select Committee released footage showing Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) running out of the complex, running away from the mob he helped instigate.
After releasing the video, they were delighted. In fact, airing it at one of his meetings drew laughter and jeers from those present.
The problem is, Carlson showed the video released by the committee only He pointed to Halle who was one of the last people to leave the room. In fact, the full clip shows several legislators running across the hall as they walk away from Capitol Police.
“The clip was propaganda, not evidence,” Carlson said.

Ray Epps, to no one’s surprise, lied to the committee
The video clip shows that Ray Epps, who was reluctantly interviewed by the committee, then reluctantly released transcripts of the interview, lied during his testimony before the committee.
The tapes show that Epps was on the grounds of the Capitol for at least 30 minutes after the time he told the House Select Committee that he was already returning to his hotel.
Epps was the leader of the “Oath Keepers” group, who appeared in a video the day before the Jan. 6 riots telling crowds to go to the Capitol.
He was at the center of unproven allegations that the FBI had informants or plants in the crowd at the Capitol that helped prompt pro-Trump protesters to riot and breach the building.
“Tomorrow, we must go to the Capitol! To the Capitol!” he can be seen telling rallygoers in a video from the scene, while some around him respond “No” and chant “Fed! Fed! Fed!”
Oddly, the committee and prosecutors had little interest in charging Epps. He was one of three people removed from the FBI’s most wanted list for capital violence without explanation by authorities.
Now compare that to nearly four years in prison for ‘Conan Shaman’ for peacefully walking around the building.

“Committee members lied about what they saw and then hid evidence from the public, as well as from January 6, criminal defendants and their attorneys,” Carlson explained. “That is inexcusable.”
This is not only unforgivable, but also a crime. This is real ‘Rebellion.’
The real ‘Big lie.’
House Republicans should pull every member of the committee before Congress to testify about why they lied to the American people. And he has to face the same scrutiny and punishment that many political prisoners have faced since the J6 riots, rotting in a DC jail.
Everyone knows that Democrats are liars.
But damn, they’re revealing all this January 6 footage tonight.
Every member of the non-partisan January 6 Committee should be held in contempt of Congress.

The farce is over. The deception was revealed. Action must be taken now and the GOP must never rest until the truth is fully exposed and some of those charged with ‘coup’ are acquitted.
Not everyone. There were definitely a handful of thugs in the crowd that day. But Democrats and the media used those thugs as a springboard to prosecute and persecute many innocent people.
And for that, they should be dirty and responsible.
Now is the time to support and share sources you trust.
