Twitter owner Elon Musk, who has faced serious headwinds from America's Democrats and other leftists for his efforts to build up the site as a platform for free speech, on Tuesday landed hard on those in Washington, leftists, and Democrats, who pursued extreme charges against those caught up on Jan. 6, 2021, events at the U.S. Capitol.
Some people rioted there and vandalized the building.
But others were allowed into the building by security officers, and essentially acted like tourists, taking selfies and such.
That's confirmed in a series of video clips Tucker Carlson obtained, with the help of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, from Capitol security cameras.
His staff is reviewing some 40,000 hours of those films, and with the first release on Monday, Carlson confirmed that Democrats and others portraying the events as an "insurrection" had lied to America.
The Washington Examiner said Musk blasted Democrats for hiding evidence for "partisan political reasons."
Musk, responding to a comment about how ex-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's partisan January 6 committee "lied" about numerous events, said, "Besides misleading the public, they withheld evidence for partisan political reasons that sent people to prison for far more serious crimes than they committed."
He said, "That is deeply wrong, legally and morally."
The Washington Examiner explained Musk was responding to statements that criticized former Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., and Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for lying.
The Examiner reported "The newly released video footage comes after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy handed it over to Fox News host Tucker Carlson. Democrats had previously withheld its release, citing 'security concerns.'"
But the evidence, concealed by Democrats from Americans for more than two years, now is coming to light.
The report said, "In the footage, Jacob Chansley, the man known as the 'QAnon Shaman,' is shown being escorted around the Capitol to the Senate floor by Capitol Police. Carlson suggests the footage raises questions as to the possible complicity of some officers in the riot.":
Pelosi's committee, in its report, focused mostly on President Trump. It is considered that Democrats repeatedly have characterized the events as an "insurrection" because tarring Trump with that label could make him ineligible to run for office in 2024.
In fact, Pelosi's committee simply ignored several key factors in the Jan. 6 events, including Pelosi's own culpability for having rejected Trump's offer of additional National Guard troops to secure the Capitol that day.
Breitbart reported that Kinzinger, who now is employed by the leftist CNN, told his own network that Carlson was as "grifter."
Kinzinger claimed, "It’s disgusting. The sad thing is you’re going to have people that have only gotten their news on Fox News that are never going to have the opportunity to hear the truth. What Tucker Carlson employs here and employed the entire time he’s been as a grifter TV show host because he knows better than this, by the way — he takes a cut scene and creates a straw man.
Kinzinger continued, "First off, on the opening there where he says, look, there is only like a handful of people here. I know one of those rooms, particularly Statuary Hall, was filled with people. There are tons of pictures of that. At some point leading up to or after, there are moments when there are only a few people in there. Secondarily, you look at like, okay, one of the things he said, Josh Hawley was running, and so was every other member of the Senate. Like, okay, yeah, because there was violence that day. He said Officer Sicknick didn’t die at the riots. He was walking around the end of the insurrection. Nobody ever claimed that Officer Sicknick died at that moment. He died a day later."
