To Democrats and other leftists, the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol was an “insurrection,” an attempt to take over the United States and make it into something else.
This despite the fact it more accurately was called a riot, where a few hundred people entered the Capitol, sometimes with permission from security, and vandalized it. The “insurrection” claim lacks reality in that there was no new chosen “leader,” no one tried to control the military, most demands involved vetting the election results; based on a widespread outrage that Congress and the courts refused to address in any significant way the alarm over evidence of widespread election malfeasance.
For the two years since it happened, there have been investigations, criminal charges, convictions, guilty pleas and a very tiny fragment of the evidence given to the public.
That would be footage from security video cameras, which would reveal exactly what happened that day.
Now there are reports those videos are going to become public, through Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News.
“Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds,” reported Mike Allen for Axios. “Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.”
A report at Just the News said the decision apparently was from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
McCarthy “has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me,” Allen reported.
The decision also was reported by U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., according to Just the News.
“For all of you that doubted we would release the tapes,” Greene said on social media, “Here you go!” She included a link to the Allen report.
“Americans deserve to see the truth, not a one sided narrative and unfair two tiered justice system,” she said.
MSN reported McCarthy turned over 41,000 hours of security recordings to Carlson’s team.
“A Fox News representative confirmed to Forbes the network had access to the tapes but declined to offer any further details beyond the Axios report, while McCarthy’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment,” the report said.
One unarmed protester was shot and killed by police on that day, and several other individuals died on what apparently were natural causes.
Carlson previously has described the riot as an “outbreak of mob violence, a forgettably minor outbreak by recent standards.”
The riot came on protests by those who said the 2020 presidential election was unsecured, and therefore invalid.
What is known is that Mark Zuckerberg handed out, through foundations, some $400 million plus to go to local elections officials, many of whom used the funding to recruit voters from Democrat precincts, undoubtedly influencing the election results for one party.
Further, Twitter and other social media sites, as well as legacy media corporations, worked together to suppress accurate reporting by the New York Post on evidence of shady deals that the Biden family engaged in with Russia and China.
The evidence was found in a laptop computer Hunter Biden had abandoned, and since then much of those details have been documented as accurate.
It’s impossible to state specifically what the election results would have been had that media – and FBI – interference not happened.
But a Media Research Center poll conducted in the days after the 2020 election found that 36% of self-described Biden voters said they were not aware of the evidence behind claims that Joe Biden was personally involved in his son Hunter’s business deals with China, a claim bolstered by emails found on Hunter’s laptop.
Thirteen percent of those voters (4.6% of all Biden voters in the sample) said that if they had known the facts, they would not have voted for Biden, a change that likely would have cost Biden the victory in a number of swing states – and installed President Trump in his second term in the White House.
Previously, various videos have appeared that do show protesters vandalizing parts of the building. However they’ve also shown security holding doors open for “rioters” as they enter the building. Many people are on video wandering around the Capitol and taking selfies.
