As a CNN reporter claimed he had acted improperly, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy remained steadfast in his decision to provide Fox News personality Tucker Carlson with thousands of hours of camera footage from the January 6, 2021 Capitol incursion.
According to CNN congressional journalist Manu Raju, it is a horrible idea to provide Citizens with a larger perspective on the events of that day.
Carlson’s producers went through more than 40,000 hours of video from the intrusion, which followed a rally that day by then-President Donald Trump and resulted in at least 1,000 arrests and a delay in the certification of the 2020 election.
In a series of dramatic and theatrical hearings last year, the House select committee that probed the incident depicted it as the near-end of the republic. In order to sell their story, committee members essentially hired a Hollywood producer.
The seven Democrats and two vehemently anti-Trump Republicans on the committee, however, censored video shown by Carlson to his Monday audience. The videos portrayed a different tale than the one the left-wing establishment media and Democrats were attempting to peddle.
In spite of the undeniable fact that there was violence at the Capitol two years ago, not everyone who entered the building was there to commit an act of violence.
According to the new films, at least one prominent trespasser who has since been sentenced, “QAnon Shaman” Jacob Chansley, had police officers as tour guides.

The issue is that the assault of the building was never as clear-cut as “insurrectionists” vs the individuals they desired to be killed.
The recordings also put new light on reports that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was slain by demonstrators on January 6 as they attempted to enter the building. Carlson claims that the film shows Sicknick wandering around the Capitol thereafter while apparently “healthy and vigorous.”

(In April 2021, the chief medical examiner of Washington announced that Sicknick died of natural causes connected to two strokes on January 7)
Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed veteran of the Air Force who was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer, was the only victim of violence during the invasion.
According to McCarthy, Carlson provided millions of Americans with a hitherto concealed perspective on the events of January 6.
Instantaneously, the corporate media, Democrats, and even some Republicans melted down. Their description of the events on January 6 cannot be refuted in any way.
In light of this, there is a belief on the left that McCarthy is responsible for the fact that people now have access to evidence that was intended to remain concealed.
Raju addressed the House speaker on Tuesday and attempted to interrogate him about providing Carlson with the complete, unedited tapes from January 6.
“Because of the footage that you gave Tucker Carlson, last night he went on and said this was a mostly peaceful chaos, as he said. He downplayed Brian Sicknick’s death, said it was not related to Jan. 6, that this was not an insurrection,” the CNN correspondent said.
He then asked, “Do you regret giving him this footage so he could whitewash the events of that day?”
McCarthy had an outstanding response to Raju’s leading question.
“No,” the speaker said. “I said at the very beginning, ‘transparency.’ And so what I wanted to produce for everybody is exactly what I said, that people can actually look at it and see what’s gone on that day.”

McCarthy concluded Americans can “come up with their own conclusion” about what happened on Jan. 6.

He also reminded the CNN reporter that his network shared the secure location of many lawmakers during the incursion, which has rendered the area useless.CONTINUE READING…
