Axios is reporting that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has granted Fox News’s Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol videotape from Jan. 6, 2021, (aka J6).
FACT-O-RAMA! We were told there were 14,000 hours of surveillance video, but now it appears there are roughly 41,000 hours of tape.
Tucker has long questioned whether J6 was an actual insurrection. The FBI stated in August 2021 they found little evidence that the crowd tried to topple the United States. A Harvard University survey released in August 2022 said the same thing.
Democrats have fought to keep the tapes under wraps. That is understandable, as it’s hard to cry “insurrection” when looking at videos of Capitol police letting protesters in the doors and fist-bumping them as they wander by, snapping selfies.

“You know it tells you a lot about the priorities of a ruling class that the rest of us are getting yet another lecture about January 6th tonight from our moral inferiors, no less,” Tucker stated on air in June 2022. “An outbreak of mob violence, a forgettably minor outbreak by recent standards, that took place more than a year and a half ago, but they’ve never stopped talking about it.”
Somehow these lefty & nevertrumpers believed they would stay in power forever and this stuff would never see the light of day.
They just need to keep the truth hidden for a few more election cycles before they hoped to have done away with valid elections altogether.
He’s giving access to Tucker Carlson, who has been outed as a stolen election denier?
You should be thrilled since, undoubtedly, the videos will reveal 14,000 hours of insurrection led by Trump. Right?
He should release it all to the general public. Why should public access be controlled by Tucker Carlson?
Why didn’t the Phony Insurrection Committee release them? Why did they release what they wanted to cherry pick and release all of it? We’ll soon find out, won’t we?
Nothing pisses the left off more than when the right uses the left’s tactics against them.
Why isn’t all collected material released in trials, instead of narrowing things down to the substantive evidence for and against conviction?
Why does such a question even need to be asked?
That’s a very good question, since the prosecution has had access to it. THEY could have been making it available to the defense by way of discovery. Seems it is more important to the Democrats to prevent the general public from seeing it than to be honest.
