Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired the first set of previously-unseen surveillance video captured by Capitol police security cameras on January 6, 2021 that undermines several aspects of the reigning narrative about what happened that day.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) last month gave Carlson’s team “unfettered” access to 41,000 hours of footage the government kept hidden from the American public and individuals charged in the Justice Department’s unprecedented and ongoing investigation into the events of January 6. Capitol Police and the Justice Department designated the recordings as “highly sensitive” material in March 2021; the trove remains under tight protective orders and defendants must agree to strict rules before gaining access to clips entered as evidence against them.
Capitol Police turned over to the FBI roughly 14,000 hours of video covering the hours of noon and 8:00 p.m. on January 6 but the full 24-hour reel has been in the hands of House Democrats for two years—reportedly the footage that Carlson’s team was authorized to view.
Carlson exposed falsehoods that bolster key animating aspects of January 6 including the movements of Jacob Chansley; the activity of still-uncharged agitator Ray Epps; the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick; alleged “reconnaissance tours” conducted by House Republicans the day before; the “escape” of Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.); and the overall deceptiveness of the January 6 Select Committee. “Taken as a whole, the video record does not support the claim that January 6 was an insurrection,” Carlson explained. “In fact, it demolishes that claim. And that’s exactly why the Democratic Party and its allies in the media prevented you from seeing it.”
At least nine police officers escorted Jacob Chansley, the so-called “QAnon shaman” throughout the building that afternoon. Some even opened doors so Chansley could access rooms inside the Capitol. Chansley was recorded inside the Senate chambers where he led a prayer and thanked law enforcement.
American Greatness first reported Chansley’s peaceful interaction with Capitol Police officers in May 2021. Chansely spent more than 300 days in solitary confinement conditions under court-ordered pretrial detention before finally accepting an offer to plead guilty to the nonviolent offense of obstruction of an official proceeding. In announcing his sentence in November 2021, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth described Chansley, a Navy veteran with no criminal record and a history of mental disorders, as the “epitome” of January 6 and insisted his conduct was “horrific.” (Chansley was not charged with a violent crime.) He is currently serving a 41 month prison term.
American Greatness has also covered the lies about what happened to Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, first raising doubts about the account of his death as early as February 2021. The media, Justice Department, leading Democrats, and the January 6 select committee claim Sicknick died as a result of scuffles with protesters that afternoon. But Carslon played a never-before-seen video of Sicknick walking around the inside of the building after the alleged attack where he appears to be healthy. A man from New Jersey, Julian Khater, pleaded guilty to spraying Sicknick with pepper spray after spending 18 months in the D.C. Gulag. He was sentenced to six years in prison.
Infamous provocateur Ray Epps, contrary to his sworn testimony, remained on restricted grounds for at least 30 minutes past the time he told the committee that he had left the scene. “We do know he lied to investigators,” Carlson said. Epps accompanied the group of protestors who first breached the exterior boundary of the Capitol on the west side before 1:00 p.m. on January 6; the new surveillance video proves he stayed on what is considered a restricted area for nearly two hours
BREAKING: January 6 footage shows that Ray Epps lied to the J6 Committee about when he left the Capitol on that day.

During one televised hearing, the January 6 Select committee aired a very brief clip of Hawley leaving the Senate chambers, video designed to show Hawley was fearful of the alleged “insurrectionists” after raising his fist in support of the crowd prior to the start of the joint session. Journalists and those in attendance at the July 2022 hearing laughed in response. “That famous clip is a sham, edited deceptively by the January 6 committee,” Carlson said. “The clip was propaganda, not evidence.” Carlson explained the full recording shows numerous lawmakers being “ushered out” of the building by Capitol Police.
That’s a longer sentence than Democrats give thugs that assault and beat random people on the streets. Hell, the 300 days of imprisonment to torture out his confession was longer than most sentences handed out to violent criminals by Democrats. Of course, you can’t compare these to ANTIFA sentences, because they don’t get charged or sentenced.
If there are any honest liberals left in this country, WHEN will they stop believing the liars they vote for and the Ministry of Propaganda media that serves them? WHEN? What will it take? Here Democrats have been caught totally red handed LYING and obviously KNOWING they were lying. Unless one simply enjoys being lied to, one to totally abandon that corrupt, degenerate ideology. Those that don’t hate the truth, hate the Constitution and hate this country.
03/11/23 – Pence says Trump ‘endangered my family’ on Jan. 6 –
Yahoo news, right up there with cnn, msnbc, abc, cbs, ny slimes and bezos wapo compost.
No evidence that President Trump “pressured” pence to overturn an election. There is a constitutional framework to challenge a presidential election. pence was too much of a coward to properly administer the process and in doing so committed treason by allowing an illegitimately elected biden to be installed as potus.
pence was aware of the planned fedsurrection to thwart the effort to allow Congress to do its job in challenging the election. He did what he was expected to do.
Pres. Trump didn’t ask him to overturn the election and Pence knows that. Therefore that was a bald-faced lie. That puts everything Pence says in doubt.
Pence’s part in the election fraud and the Jan. 6 setup may yet come out with a proper January 6 real investigation and then become a part of history.
Other than new rules, emergency rules, what other peculiar things occurred when the speaker reconvened?
Members were allowed to “vote” in proxy…remotely…not being present…(you can use your imagination about what conditions were placed on ALL members during this time to prevent anyone from “getting out of line”.
Also clearly, it was at this new session that VP Pence, President of Congress, would also have no ability to even consider pausing the electoral certification…because there was no motions of disagreements on the matter.
So in a technical legal claim, he is correct that he had no constitutional authority to address any issues of fraud or doubts about electoral irregularities. Note that pence and majority leader were in possession of letters form several states asking for their electors to be returned to allow those states to investigate those irregularities. But this completely dismisses the fact that congress created rules in this crisis/emergency that never allowed them to be floored!
Understand what happened in jan 6…don’t get hung up on viking impostors, stolen pelosi computers, podium heists, and complicit capitol police. Understand the process and what happened and what was not allowed to happen. This was a coup….it was a very organized and carefully planned coup. VP Pence without a doubt as well as most members of the house were quite aware of how the certification was going to be managed.
It would require new rules to prevent the debate clause from occurring!
New rules that only an emergency crisis could create. So they created an emergency.
It is important to dissect and examine the events of that day. Step back and understand why these things happened…examine the chain of events in congress…why those two motions that would have at least paused the certification that would have given pence the constitutional authority to move to suspend the electoral certification and then examine the irregularities and claims of fraud. at the very center of this coup stands Pence…the same individual who also spoiled President Trump’s first opportunities in the earliest hours of his Presidency just 4 years prior, when he created and facilitated the removal of LTGEN Flynn.
Because they report truth that you don’t want to hear…
I’m okay with that.
Not taking action to stop traitors is a serious dereliction of duty.
Trump had no role in the January 6th riot. Pelosi and Wray had the leading roles.
Mike PenceDonald Trump.
Does a change of names help you understand how crazy your “peaceful demonstrators” were?
Tell it to your Speaker of the House. There’s a reason he has only let Tucker Carlson see them.
And he’ll be telling it to Tucker…
Maybe you want the media coverage to be equitable. Well, you had your chance when whe FBI was making CNN their personal documentarian for their political GESTAPO raids.
We really dont care what Antifa and the FBI were chanting.
It is abundantly clear now that this was pre planned and executed so that the constitutional effort to challenge the election would be stopped. pence was a willing dupe to go along with it. They knew if the session continued and there were more successful challenges, the election would be in question and would then be resolved in the House of Representatives.
You people called for the death of Trump for years, so we’re used to it.
“Assassinate Zelenskyy” instead of your calls to assassinate Putin
See how crazy you sound.
They were peaceful until the Capital Police opened up on them. Why are you not interested in finding out who was instigating the violence? Afraid of what you’ll find out?
I have heard up to 250 Antifa and dozens of FBI now we could never pull this kind of stuff at a Biden Rally cause the only ones there are aides and the press what crowd would they try to blend into?
From arrest photos splashed on the web from Portland it might look like a teachers convention.
Loser Trump and his lying toadies instigated the violence—then he went back to the White House and watched it on TV while ignoring pleas for help and advice from his own people to call off his mob. THIS HAS BEEN FULLY DOCUMENTED.
Not everyone has lost touch with reality. Nearly all mainstream US news is REAL. FOX and Newsmax are the main exceptions.
That is some funny shit
Greggie has a kegger
Remember how mainstream media has been telling you climate change is real? Denial is another example of your departure from mainstream reality.
Since you are incapable of defining “a traditional conservative”, do you possess enough intellect to define “climate?”
Like how the ice caps would be gone by 2013? Like how by the 1980’s we’d be frozen? Like how the oceans would be up a few feet by now? This is the same media that told us Trump was a Russian asset even though they already knew that story was a Hillary lie.
No, just you Here’s proof.
Was the “Russian collusion/Trump Russian asset” story real? Was Hunter’s laptop REALLY “Russian disinformation”? Did the Covington kids REALLY call a native American guy racist slurs? Did Trump REALLY tell people to drink bleach? Did Trump REALLY say Nazis were “fine people”?
Provide the comperable lies issued by Fox or Newsmax.
No matter how many times the lie is disproven with actual evidence, you remain addicted to the lie.
