Some of the Democrats and the mainstream media’s narratives of the events in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, were called to question after Fox News host Tucker Carlson released some unreleased footage from the over 40,000 hours of video he received from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
In the video aired on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday, law enforcement officers are seen giving Jacob Chansley a sort of guided tour.

Chansley, a Navy veteran, also referred to as the “QAnon Shaman,” is used as the Liberal media’s face of the Jan. 6 riot. He was arrested and slammed with federal charges in connection to entering any restricted building without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol Hill. He was sentenced to 41 months in prison after a guilty plea.
However, the newly released footage tells a different story than the destructive one the media has told for the last two years, as police officers on the grounds were seen escorting Chansley without incident. They even attempted to open locked doors for him.
Carlson noted that none of the police officers tried to stop him or slow him down, even though he was within reach of at least nine of them.
“They helped him. They acted as his tour guide. We counted at least nine officers who were within touching distance of unarmed Jacob Chansley. Not one of them tried to slow him down,” Carlson said.
Somewhere in the footage, Chansley can be heard saying a prayer on the Senate floor. “Thank you Heavenly Father for taking the inspiration needed to these police officers to allow us in this building,” he stated.
Carlson noted on the Monday show that the Left’s depiction of Chansley as a “terrorist” is a lie, as the footage showed that he “understood that Capitol Police were his allies.”
Several Democrats have compared the Jan. 6 incident to 9/11 and the Pearl Harbor attack from 1941. Hence, they have called for severe punishment for Chansley, with some calling for capital punishment.
Having seen the footage, Carlson wonders why the officers who were “standing right next to him” did not place Chansley under arrest if he was committing such a grave offense.
