TUCKER CARLSON: The Democrats, Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney lied about January 6

NEWYou can listen to Fox News articles now!

We’re about to show you surveillance footage from inside the United States Capitol. The images you will see were recorded 26 months ago today January 6, 2021. Until now, politicians have kept this tape hidden from the public. There is no legitimate justification for that and there never has been.

But the beneficiaries of that election continue to lie about what is now clear. The real crime, they will tell you over and over again, is not what happened on Election Day, 2020. The real crime is what happened two months later, on January 6, when Donald Trump was in charge on rebellion against the duly elected American government.

To prove that claim and to divert attention from the details of the presidential election itself, the Democrats in Congress interrupted what they gave to the House Select Committee on the January 6 attack. The point of that committee was to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again. In December of last year, members of the committee voted unanimously to refer Trump to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. Mission accomplished.


But what the committee did not do was explain what happened inside the Capitol on January 6th. Three weeks ago, thanks to the new Republican speaker’s office, we got access to thousands of hours of surveillance video that help answer that question. The IS Committee 6 January access to this same tape and watched a lot of it. But as we were about to show you, committee members lied about what they saw and then hid the evidence from the public, as well as from January 6, criminal defendants and their lawyers. That is incomprehensible.

Whatever you think of Speaker Kevin McCarthy, he righted that crime, and we’re thankful he did. Before we show you the tape, a few words on the process. Our producers had unrestricted access to Capitol surveillance video. Neither the speaker’s office nor our bosses at Fox News interfered with our investigation in any way.

Of the 40,000 or so hours of tape, most of it was irrelevant – static shots of empty rooms, in some cases far from the Capitol itself. To find relevant video, our producers were given the use of Capitol computers with advanced mapping software. This made it easy to find what we were looking for. What we didn’t have was access to facial recognition software, and that was significant.


For more than two years, he has wondered why people in the crowd that day who appeared to be inciting violence were never indicted. We assumed these were federal agents of some sort. We still accept that. And indeed, there were many examples of behavior we saw in those tapes that didn’t seem to make sense: Men in civilian clothes holding doors open for protesters, escorting others to the Capitol, etc. We would love to know who these people are but as of tonight, we don’t know and because we don’t know, we’re not going to put their faces on the screen and suggest that they were federal agents. That would be irresponsible.

So, there were many mysteries that we could not solve. Among them, unfortunately, is the shooting of Ashli ​​Babbitt. From the evidence, we have the publicly available evidence, it seems clear that Babbitt was murdered by a Capitol Hill police officer called Michael Byrd. Ashli ​​Babbitt was unarmed. She was shorter than average. She posed no discernible threat to anyone, but after that we can only speculate as to what happened. There were no security cameras near the speaker’s lobby where Babbitt was actually killed.

And one more thing: nobody in Washington, Republican or Democrat, certainly not in the news media, wanted to release this tape tonight. That is why it is still hidden for more than two years. In recent weeks, the usual hyenas in Congress and on cable news have been crying that we are putting lives at risk by showing this tape to the public.

Since these are the same people who support open borders and fund the police, it’s hard to take their complaints seriously. But we take security seriously. So, before airing any of this video, we first checked with the Capitol Police. We are happy to say that their reservations were small and for the most part, they were reasonable. In the end, the only change we made was to blur the details of one interior door in the Capitol building. You’re unlikely to even notice when we show it to you, and we’re confident it won’t affect our reporting.


With that, here is the video. It doesn’t answer all the questions from January 6th, far from it, but it proves without a doubt that the Democrats in Congress, with the help of Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, lied about what happened that day. They are liars. That’s a bummer, and that fact should prevent them from getting serious again.

We’re going to get inside with footage that shows you what was really happening inside Capital. The film does not show an uprising or riot taking place. Instead, it shows police escorting protesters through the building, including the now infamous “QAnon Shaman.”
