Thousands of hours of footage not previously available to the public was analysed by Fox News journalist Tucker Carlson and his team.
The video evidence contradicted government and US legacy media narratives on the events of January 6 2021, where a crowd of protesters had gathered in the Capitol precint in Washington DC following the disputed 2020 US Presidential election.
Carlson claimed the new footage showed the House Committee set up to investigate the events of that day (known as ‘the Jan 6 Committee), as well as the legacy media, had lied to the public about what had happened.
News reports on the day falsely claimed that 5 police officers had been killed by protesters. Mainstream media pundits and top Democrats immediately characterised the protest as a ‘deadly insurrection’ when the thousands strong crowd was in fact largely peaceful. High profile protester, the so-called ‘Q-Anon Shaman’ was labelled a ‘violent attacker’ and ‘white supremacist’ who had stormed the government buildings, but video showed that he and others were in fact non-violent, peaceful, and had been given a guided tour by security officers.
According to Carlson, the video showed very little about the events of that day that was ‘violent or organised’. It was mostly ‘peaceful chaos’, he said.
Reporting on the death of police officer Brian Sicknick, a Trump supporter, was also false. Footage showed Sicknick alive and walking around Capitol Hill, even waving the crowd to come inside, when according to legacy MSM he had already been murdered by protesters outside the building. The Jan 6 Committee also knew of this, said Carlson.
Democratic party investigators who saw the Sicknick tape hid it from the public because it ‘would shatter the fraud they were perpetrating on the country.’
